SAN MATEO, California and LONDON, July 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloudian, Inc., the only fully S3-compatible object storage provider and the leader in software-defined smart data storage, has announced that HyperStore, its object storage solution, has won Cloud Product of the Year Award at the Storage Awards 2016. The awards were recently presented at the Grand Connaught Rooms, London and were judged by industry peers and a public vote via the Storage Awards website (http://www.storage-awards.com/).
The Storage Awards are an important storage industry event in the UK that recognise the achievements of key individuals and organisations within the storage sector. Last year, Cloudian HyperStore was placed runner up in the Storage Magazine "One to Watch" Product category, however this year, HyperStore received greater recognition, winning 'Cloud Product of the Year'.
Cloudian HyperStore object storage enables enterprises and solution providers to build full-featured, Amazon S3-compatible cloud storage, on-premises, using stand-alone software, or fully integrated Cloudian HyperStore appliances. It incorporates innovative automation for data storage management so enterprises and solution providers can simply and cost-effectively manage petabyte-scale data volumes. With its enhanced data management features, including unique proactive repair, and Amazon S3 cross-region replication for disaster recovery, as well as smart storage analytics, HyperStore transforms the data centre for a fraction of the cost of other object storage offerings.
"We are delighted to win the award for 'Cloud Product of the Year' as it is recognition of the success we're seeing for Cloudian HyperStore in the market," said Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at Cloudian.
