Cleversafe Announces New Partnerships and Initiatives to Streamline Object Storage Deployment

Since its inception, Cleversafe, Inc has been working on creating the breakthrough technology that solves petabyte and Big Data storage problems. The company has now said that it has made new partnerships and also enhanced its software capabilities, to enable businesses to simplify the deployment and integration of object-based storage into their current environments.

Companies can now get over Web-scale data storage challenges easily by using Cleversafe’s latest hardware, interface options and new software features. The company has rolled out ClevOS 3.2, which improves the flexibility and abilities of the dsNet system. This new software helps customers’ to ease object-based storage implementations and also meet their exceptional business needs.  

Along with ClevOS 3.2, Cleversafe has supplemented an OpenStack Swift (News - Alert) compatible API to its list of supported APIs, which also includes Amazon S3, HDFS and a Cleversafe specific Simple Object API.

“As corporate infrastructures become more complex, CIOs and CTOs must consider options that support industry standards and that afford the most flexibility to meet their workload and application requirements,” said Russ Kennedy, Senior Vice President of Product Strategy and Customer Solutions for Cleversafe. “By extending our hardware offerings and enhancing our software, we are making it easier for our customers to implement an object storage strategy that solves their most pressing data storage challenges today and in the future.”

Also, the company has extended hardware options with HP, by certifying the HP ProLiant SL4540 Generation 8 (Gen8) server as a Slicestor appliance. Cleversafe has also certified the Dispersed Storage Network (dsNet) Manager and Accesser on the HP ProLiant DL360p Gen8 server.

Cleversafe’s dsNet technology with HP servers shortens the management of large scale data repositories and affords the availability and reliability required to manage customers’ utmost critical digital assets.

Yogi Barman, Director of Strategic Alliances, HP Servers said, “The HP ProLiant SL4540 and DL360p Gen8 servers combined with Cleversafe’s dsNet object-based storage technology enables clients to address their growing data challenges with a highly reliable solution that can easily scale out to meet Petabyte-scale data demand without impacting performance.”
