Cloud Storage in Your Data Center with S3-Native Object Storage

Make the most of your entire storage landscape. Optimize data placement — both in the cloud and on-prem — for securityperformance, capacity and cost. Cloudian’s cloud solutions make it easy to deploy cloud-native applications and manage your data anywhere (on-prem, private or public cloud), in a single, pay-as-you-grow S3 management framework, with built-in analytics and zero lock-in.

Cloudian HyperStore has the most comprehensive data immutability and security capabilities of any on-prem object storage, certified by third-party government assessment agencies, so you can reduce your ransomware worries right along with your costs.

Public Cloud vs. On-Prem Object Storage: Comparing Total Cost of Ownership

Download this TCO Report to see how private cloud can save you up to 65% of your storage costs for backup and archive, media workflows, and other capacity-intensive applications while giving you the same scalability and flexibility within the security of your firewall. With Cloudian, you can manage all your clouds, private and public, from one S3-based framework.

Data Sovereignty Requirements for UK and European Union MSPs

As organisations generate exponential volumes of unstructured data, it’s important for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to be able to offer broad, end-to-end cloud services that are scalable, cost effective, and secure.

This in-depth white paper covers the 5 most important things MSPs in the UK and the EU need to know about their data in the era of sovereign cloud:

  1. Privacy
  2. Residency
  3. Sovereignty
  4. Protection & Management
  5. Security


Data needs to be stored on-premises in the country it was collected to be protected by national laws. For this purpose, object storage is a more affordable, scalable solution than block or file. MSPs also need to embed data protection into the cloud stack with backup, encryption, and micro- segmentation capabilities to secure workloads.


Manage on-prem and cloud storage together with Cloudian. Cloudian HyperStore works much like (and with) Amazon Outposts, adding infinite on-prem capacity at a significantly lower cost.

  • Deploy on-prem storage as a high-performance, secure backup target, then automatically replicate that data to the public cloud for an offsite copy.
  • Create an on-prem data lake and automatically offload less frequently used data to the cloud for limitless scalability.
  • Automate data management within a single namespace that spans your public cloud and on-prem worlds, all in native S3 for no lock-in.
  • Buy just the storage you need, then pay-as-you-grow in a truly cloud-native business model.

The Advantages of Cloudian’s AWS Outposts Ready Designation

“Cloudian S3-compatible storage, used as an add-on platform, provides scalable capacity for AWS Outposts for use cases that require local data residency, low latency access and/or integrated ransomware protection.”

Evaluator Group logo

Technical Insight report coverEnterprise IT executives are increasingly pursuing a hybrid cloud strategy. To align with that approach, Amazon Web Services introduced Outposts to deliver AWS services to on-premises data centers using a hybrid cloud architecture.

In this Evaluator Group Technical Insight Report, the analyst firm focuses on the AWS Outposts storage environment and how the use of Outposts-qualified storage systems can reduce complexity and IT staff burden as well as enhance security.

Cloudian HyperStore is an Outposts Ready, fully native S3-compatible object storage platform that addresses key user concerns, including:

  • Data security, including ransomware protection
  • Application portability due to the fully native S3 compatibility
  • Ease of management 

Scalable S3-Compatible Storage, On-Prem with AWS Outposts

Meet your data sovereignty, capacity, and latency needs with S3-compatible storage on-prem. Scale to exabytes of storage in your data center, directly accessible from your AWS Outposts-based applications.

5 Reasons to Adopt Hybrid Cloud Storage

Hybrid cloud is a storage environment that uses a mix of on-premises and public cloud services with data mobility between the two platforms.

As more organizations look to the public cloud to augment their on-premises data management, hybrid cloud is often the solution of choice, particularly when your private cloud is compliant with S3 API standards, allowing all of your clouds to talk to each other in their native tongue.

Read about the 5 reasons why hybrid cloud storage is rapidly being adopted by IT organizations worldwide.

Managed Cloud Services is a healthy, thriving market. Organizations of all sizes are streamlining their operations by focusing their resources on the work they do best for their customers while partnering with service providers for the rest. Managed cloud providers offer more control over the data management and security needs as compared with the public cloud and are a credible option for organizations of all sizes looking at the Cloud.

As a result, the managed services market is becoming increasingly competitive and is expected to reach $257 billion by 2022. To succeed, MSPs must deliver a broad portfolio of sought-after services along with excellent customer service.
