Cloudian and Snowflake join forces to help customers unlock more value from their data

Cloudian launches its HyperStore on-prem data lake storage in partnership with Snowflake, the Data Cloud company.

Cloudian and Snowflake customers will now have access to data stored on HyperStore that is deployed on-premises in either a private cloud or hybrid cloud configuration. Designed from its inception to be fully S3 compatible, HyperStore provides the scalability and ease-of-management of a public cloud within an organization’s data center, offering enhanced performance, full control over security, data sovereignty, and reduced cost.

The combination of Cloudian and Snowflake addresses increasing interest from customers in running analytics applications on data in-place rather than having to move that data to a public cloud, which can be costly and time consuming. In addition to providing private cloud storage, HyperStore can also be deployed as part of a hybrid cloud strategy, with data being replicated or tiered to public cloud service providers.

Reflecting Cloudian’s leadership in object storage, it is the only vendor named a Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage for three consecutive years. Key HyperStore benefits include:

  • Modular, limitless scalability – Start with three low-cost nodes and expand simply by adding devices to the cluster without disrupting analytics workloads.
  • Data resiliency – Get up to 14 nines of resiliency with administrator-defined data replication or erasure coding.
  • Ransomware protection – Through S3 Object Lock, prevent malware from encrypting and/or deleting data — enabling quick, easy recovery without paying ransom — and meet governance and legal hold demands.
  • Military-grade security – Further secure data with features such as secure shell, integrated firewall, RBAC/IAM access controls, AES-256 server-side encryption for data at rest and SSL for data in transit, as well as certification with the most stringent government security requirements.
  • Multi-tenancy – Allow multiple users to store and analyze data within a single, shared data lakehouse — without compromising security — while also employing multi-tenant billing, metering and quality of service (QoS) controls.

“We look forward to seeing our joint customers unlock more value from their data through our partnership with Cloudian,” said Tarik Dwiek, Head of Technology Alliances at Snowflake. “Together, we work to enable our customers to take advantage of our joint solutions in order to move forward with mobilizing their data.”

“Analytics applications are providing new opportunities for organizations to leverage their digital assets, including on-premises data, to achieve their goals,” said Larry Meese, vice president of products and solutions, Cloudian. “We look forward to working with Snowflake to help customers capitalize on these opportunities by providing a robust, modern storage foundation.”
