Explosive growth in stored data volumes is putting intense pressure on IT budgets. The challenge now will be figuring out how to store all this data. A new white paper from Cloudian, sponsored by the Evaluator Group, offers a review and economic evaluation of Cloudian Hyperstore as compared to the traditional purpose-built backup appliance (PBBA).
Storage administrators’ jobs are getting even bigger, and protecting their enterprises’ data is becoming more difficult. In this environment, many are turning to object-based storage systems, such as Cloudian Hyperstore.
According to the report, vendors are positioning these types of storage systems as “on-premises targets for backups.”
The report explains the integration of object-based data protection storage with cloud storage resources is seen as the “key” to scalability, cost savings, efficiency and more.

In fact, storage plays a huge role in hybrid cloud pilot projects, which for many enterprises include on-premises storage for data that must remain within the data center.
The white paper covers in detail Cloudian’s HyperStore, a hybrid cloud-capable, object-based storage platform, when used as a target for data protection applications.
Cloudian HyperStore is an on-premises, scale-out, object storage-based system that is designed to run on industry standard Linux server clusters. The report covers the product’s features in detail, which include erasure coding, parallel disk I/O data protection, virtual nodes, native S3 interface and more.
The full report from Cloudian covers the following topics in detail:
- Modern Data Protection and the Hybrid Cloud
- Cloudian HyperStore Essentials
- Cloudian Hyperstore in a Modern Data Protection Environment
- TCO Comparison of Cloudian HyperStore vs. a Competing PBBA
- Cloudian HyperStore as a Remote DR Target
