Telecommunications services specialist, NTT Communications (News - Alert), recently adapted Cloudian's S3 compatible Object Storage Platform to further support its cloud storage service such as "Biz Hosting Cloudn Object Storage."
NIT officials said the Cloudian's service will be first deployed at NTT Communications data centers in Japan, followed by data centers in the United States and in other countries.
Cloudian is a fully S3 API-compliant, multi-tenant, multi-datacenter cloud storage platform, and is an ideal source for Cloud Service Providers to deploy public clouds and managed private clouds. Cloudian storage is reliable, secure, easy to install, infinitely scalable and backed by a proven, carrier-grade support team.
Susumu Okuhira, NTT Communications director of Hosting and Platform Service, Cloud Services said, "NTT Communications launched a business hosting service, 'Biz Hosting Cloudn' on March 30, 2012. Our aim is to provide innovative, highly reliable ICT service seamlessly across the globe under our 'Global Cloud Vision.' With this aim, we were also studying an object storage service that is highly scalable, with unlimited data capacity. Cloudian has a proven track record in global markets to provide highly resilient and robust object storage with an Amazon S3-compatible API, which we believe is an optimal fit with our idea of object storage service."
Enterprises and service providers offering Amazon S3-compatible Storage-as-a-Service (StaaS) and/or provide secondary storage systems for their cloud compute platforms – such as Citrix Cloud Platform, Apache CloudStack and OpenStack – can pick Cloudian as a perfect cloud storage solution.
"This deployment is an important milestone for the Cloudian Platform and we are excited to have been chosen by NTT Communications," said Michael Tso, COO at Cloudian, Inc. "Considering the thoroughness of NTT Communication's evaluation process and the size of the deployment of the Cloudn Storage as a Service, we believe that Cloudian can now be considered as one of the few proven cloud storage solutions ready for customers with the highest profile and largest systems in the world."
Cloudian, Inc. is a Foster City, CA-based software company. Its customer list includes Vodafone (News - Alert), Nextel, NTT, SoftBank, Nifty and Lunacloud.
