The Cloudian HyperStore object storage and Microsoft Azure Stack HCI are designed to work in tandem to deliver limitless scalability, military-grade security and cloud-native data management.

According to Jon Toor, chief marketing officer at Cloudian, the team built HyperStore with seamless integration in mind.

"From its inception, we designed HyperStore to give customers a cloud-native storage foundation that would support modern applications on-premises while integrating seamlessly with public clouds, thereby helping them to achieve greater business and operational success.


"Our growing collaboration with Microsoft reflects Cloudian's leadership in enabling enterprises and service providers to meet their evolving hybrid cloud needs," Toor said.

The combined solution gives Azure Stack HCI customers the scalability and flexibility benefits of public cloud in a highly secure and cost-effective, cloud-native storage platform within their own data centres. It aims to provide a strong foundation for hybrid use cases that demand data residency and low-latency data access in sectors such as financial services, healthcare, media and entertainment, telecommunications, and government.

Microsoft Azure Arc extends the Azure platform, according to Vijay Kumar, director of product marketing at Azure, Microsoft, further explaining that the compatibility is across hybrid, multi-cloud and edge environments.

"Azure Stack HCI is our first-party Azure Arc-enabled infrastructure that enables customers to run services and applications in their own data centres.

"With solutions like Cloudian's HyperStore, customers will now be able to benefit from one of the leading object storage platforms to support their data residency and latency requirements," Kumar said.

The Cloudian HyperStore and Microsoft Azure Stack announcement follows the recent integration of HyperStore with Microsoft SQL Server 2022.

James Wright, regional director for ANZ, ASEAN, and Oceania at Cloudian, added that the big question Cloudian asks ANZ organisations is "What data could your business not survive without, and how quickly do you need that data restored?

"On-premises is the obvious answer for that data profile from the perspective of visibility, ransomware protection, sovereignty, and control.

"When we consider that solutions like Azure Stack and HyperStore also make the experience as simple and flexible as the public cloud, it's a no-brainer and ideal for the great hybrid cloud transition organisations are going through," Wright said.
