Cloudian HyperStore and Komprise Data Management

Reclaim Tier 1 NAS Capacity

Over 60% of NAS data is typically cold and infrequently accessed. Nonetheless, it consumes expensive capacity and data backup resources every day. Cloudian and Komprise let you move that data to on-premises archival storage and immediately reclaim 60% of your Tier 1 NAS capacity.

The Cloudian / Komprise solution is completely transparent to users. Throughout the lifecycle, your users see no change in data access. When a migrated file is requested, the data is automatically returned to the filer for transparent user access.

In the Cloudian / Komprise solution, Komprise data management software identifies inactive NAS data and transparently moves it to Cloudian scaleout storage based on your policies. Select from various parameters including data age and frequency of use to determine which files will be migrated. All analysis occurs outside of the data path. Analysis activity adapts to production workloads to ensure no performance impact.
