Cloudian, QStar: Partners For Media Archive Solutions
Foster City, Calif.-based hybrid cloud storage developer Cloudian and Navarre, Fla.-based developer of enterprise data management and archiving solutions QStar Technologies are partnering to provide enterprises with a new broadcast and media archive solution targeting high-value digital assets.
The solution includes two parts. The first is Cloudian's HyperStore fault-tolerant storage solution, which allows storage objects to be optionally tiered to Amazon S3, Glacier or any other S3 cloud. The second is the QStar Archive Manager software, which provides a NAS-style archive gateway to the Cloudian HyperStore. Together, according to the vendors, they provide an archiving solution featuring easy access to data, long-term security and unlimited scalability.
