Cloudian announced that its HyperStore object storage has been certified with VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG), a multi-cloud Kubernetes footprint that can run both on-premises in VMware vSphere and in the public cloud on Amazon EC2 and Microsoft Azure.
HyperStore is said to deliver enterprise-grade persistent storage for modern, cloud-native applications in TKG customers’ own environments.
Enterprises are increasingly deploying cloud-native applications on-premises to meet regulatory requirements and avoid the cost and complexity of moving large production workloads to the cloud. These applications require a modern storage foundation that can fully support technologies such as Kubernetes, serverless computing and microservices that are key components of these environments.
Unfortunately, traditional enterprise storage systems not only are difficult to provision and manage but also cannot deliver the cost-effective scalability needed. Purpose-built container storage offerings are more agile but lack the scalability, security and durability that cloud-native production environments demand.
In contrast to these other solutions, Cloudian said it gives VMware TKG customers a highly scalable, more secure and cost-effective enterprise storage platform needed for cloud-native applications. It features fully native S3 compatibility, multi-tenancy, multi-cloud support and more.
