AntemetA Selects Cloudian Object Storage as Foundation for Sovereign Cloud Offering
November 2019 by Marc Jacob
Cloudian® announced that AntemetA, a French managed services provider and reseller, has decided to build a new sovereign cloud offering on Cloudian’s HyperStore® object storage platform. AntemetA will also resell HyperStore appliances to users that want to deploy an object storage solution in their own data centers. The company chose Cloudian over its existing object storage provider—which will now be swapped out—and another storage company that is one of the largest in the world.
Headquartered just outside of Paris, AntemetA assists customers in their digital transformation, offering infrastructure solutions such as storage, servers, virtualization and networks, a wide range of consulting, support and governance services, and cloud computing solutions called ARCANA. As it looked to expand its cloud offerings, the company wanted to ensure that it had the best object storage platform for meeting its growing needs. After conducting proof of concepts with Cloudian and another storage provider and then comparing capabilities with its incumbent object storage supplier, AntemetA selected HyperStore.
“To guarantee our customers a sovereign and trusted cloud for long-term data retention, we thoroughly evaluated Cloudian and concluded it was the best solution to fit our needs as a service provider, including scalable capacity, multi-tenancy and affordability,” said Josserand Moraillon, data management business line manager at AntemetA.
Specifically designed for cloud infrastructures, HyperStore offers a range of benefits, including:
• Modular and limitless scalability, enabling users to start small and grow to an exabyte of storage capacity without interruption.
• The industry’s most advanced S3 compatibility, ensuring seamless integration with the expanding ecosystem of S3-based applications.
• Proven interoperability with technology partner solutions in data protection, big data and data management.
• Integrated management tools such as billing and quality of service controls.
• Multi-tenancy to provide users with secure, self-managed storage within a shared platform.
• Geo-distribution for easily managing storage across multiple data centers.
• Support for SMB/NFS storage services.
• Choice of configurations, including software-defined storage and pre-configured appliances.
• Cost savings of up to 70% compared to traditional disk- and tape-based storage systems.
“We look forward to partnering with AntemetA to bring these benefits to more users and support AntemetA in achieving its business growth objectives,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer at Cloudian.
