Cloudian Partners With Vertica For Data Warehousing AI

Cloudian announced a partnership with Vertica, a Micro Focus line of business, providing organizations with a public cloud-like modern data warehousing solution, on-premises, for managing their artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) and other analytics workloads securely behind their firewall.

Vertica’s separation of compute and storage scaling of its underlying analytical database allows customers to use Cloudian’s HyperStore native S3-compatible object storage as a single location to store all their data.

As a result, users can capitalize on HyperStore’s many benefits, including exabyte-level scalability, military-grade security, and cost savings of up to 70 percent compared to public cloud and traditional storage alternatives.

Data warehouse and data lake environments are growing rapidly, with analytics use cases such as AI/ML fuelling the growth of petabyte-scale data sets. This growth is occurring in public clouds and enterprise data centers as organizations look to run analytics applications on their local data and want to do so on-prem—rather than in public clouds—for performance, security, data sovereignty, and cost reasons.


In contrast to traditional infrastructure solutions that cannot meet the cost, scalability, and other requirements for supporting these modern applications, Cloudian’s HyperStore offers an ideal data repository or lake for Vertica environments:

Drop-in integration: Seamlessly integrate with Vertica using Vertica’s capability to use S3 as the main repository for the hybrid cloud.Modular, limitless elasticity: Start with three low-cost nodes and expand by adding devices to the cluster without disrupting analytics workloads.Multi-tenancy: Allow multiple users to analyze data sitting on a single, shared data lake or data warehouse without compromising security while employing multi-tenant billing, metering, and quality of service (QoS) controls.Hybrid-cloud readiness: Employ policy-based tools to replicate or tier data to AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, or another HyperStore cluster for offsite disaster recovery, capacity expansion, or data analysis in the cloud.

Data resiliency: Get up to 14 nines of resiliency and administrator-defined storage policies for implementing it based on replication or erasure coding.Ransomware protection: Through S3 Object Lock, prevent malware from encrypting data—enabling quick, easy recovery of an unencrypted backup copy without paying the ransom—and meet governance and legal hold demands.Military-grade security: Further secure data with features such as a secure shell, integrated firewall, RBAC/IAM access controls, AES-256 server-side encryption for data at rest, SSL for data in transit, and certification with the most stringent government security requirements.

“With enterprises looking to leverage analytics applications on-prem to gain greater insights from the data stored there, having a modern storage infrastructure is critical,” said Jeff Healey, vice president of marketing of the Vertica Product Group at Micro Focus.

“By partnering with Cloudian, we’re enabling our customers to capitalize on a leading object storage platform and maximize the value of their digital assets,” he said

“Over the past two years, Cloudian has introduced a range of new solutions to support organizations’ modern application demands,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer of Cloudian.

“With data gravity and data sovereignty driving the move toward hybrid cloud models, the Cloudian-Vertica solution combines the benefits of cloud-based data warehouses with the security, control, and other advantages of keeping data behind the firewall,” he said

Cloudian will feature the solution this week at HPE Discover 2022 (Booth #312). Austech Media is Australian press release distribution and publishing organization dedicated to the technology industry. Incorporating the distribution of technology news and events
