Interoute has partnered with Cloudian to provide what it claims is a fast and “very low cost” cloud-based storage service for unstructured data, backups and archives.
Interoute says it selected Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage technology for its scale-out capabilities, S3 API compatibility, multi-tenancy features and ease of integration. The new service offers multiple petabytes of capacity, with further growth planned in accordance with demand.
The deployment is available across Interoute’s entire cloud-based platform with 17 Virtual Data Centre zones globally. Customers have the option to use in-country deployments in Switzerland and Germany. Interoute says the geo-location flexibility offered by the solution in combination with its Enterprise Digital Platform gives customers control over data locality and enables them to build regulatory-compliant storage solutions in different territories.
Mark Lewis, EVP products and development at Interoute, says: “With GDPR looming large in 2018, as well as the rapid adoption of VDC and SaaS platforms, our customers are revisiting the legacy world of physical backup and archiving and demanding a simple, controlled, auditable cloud service. So we’ve created an easily accessed and integrated, cost-effective object storage service to support their digital transformation.”
