Cloudian HyperStore – Product Brief

Last updated December 16th, 2022 for end of year updates. Concise 7-page overview of the Cloudian HyperStore object storage product. Covers highlights, potential, usage, and strengths and weaknesses.

Cloudian HyperStore is offered as either an appliance or software only using commodity servers and storage devices as a complete system or with node instances in public clouds – AWS, Azure, and Google. The appliance-based systems can scale with multiple nodes that have devices for metadata and data with differing numbers and type of processors with multiple cores.

The Cloudian HyperStore software includes functionality expected of object storage systems to compress and encrypt data, protect data using forward error correction with erasure coding, and seamless scaling with addition of nodes and dynamic rebalancing. Additionally, HyperStore includes the ability to auto-tier data using a policy engine and data mover to public clouds, multi-tenancy support with assignable permissions, and billing/chargeback and quota support for APIs.

The HyperStore system supports access using the S3 protocol for objects but does not have native support for file access. Objects are stored in an underlying EXT4 filesystem. Cloudian also has software that can be installed on a server or in a Virtual Machine to provide file access and controls. Cloudian HyperFile is a NAS controller that provides file to object access.
