Storing data at cloud not only enhances cost reduction but also improves business productivity, saves time, and provide better security of the infrastructure.
But traditional enterprise storage solutions are based on proprietary hardware and controller-based storage arrays, which are expensive and rigid. It causes issues like vendor lock-in, self-governed, shortage of large amounts of data storage, hardware failure.
Enterprises facing issues related to the traditional storage system, thus are more likely to adopt a cloud storage management service. Cloud storage not only beneficial in the maintenance of infrastructure but also ensures productivity, security, disaster recovery, and cost-saving.
Intensification in technologies makes enterprises to boost their business by adopting new technologies for cloud storage. Henceforth shifting to cloud storage for better productivity is somewhat trending & beneficial.
Click2Cloud has built a platform which is working to address storage integration challenges, particularly in scale-out cloud-native environments with heterogeneous storage platform.
It is about creating a framework for universal storage control. It abstracts the storage complexities so that storage from any vendor can be discovered, provisioned, and managed in the same way regardless of the computing environment.
CloudsBrain of Click2Cloud with Storage Studio feature offers object and block storage for a single clustered platform. Click2Cloud and SODA Foundation open source community together has built features like multi-cloud for GCP, CEPH, AWS, S3, Azure, Huawei, Alibaba, IBM, OTC as storage back-end.
CloudsBrain collaboration with SODA Foundation storage not only helps in the data management ecosystem built but also drives research in technologies.
CloudsBrain object storage provides seamless migration, monitoring, and management services. Users can perform operations like create a bucket, delete a bucket, upload objects, download objects, and delete objects from a single platform.
Block storage helps to create snapshots. Users can also use these snapshots to back up the data. Block storage management service allows volume lifecycle management that utilizes device and performs operations on volume, snapshot backup to any s3 compatible cloud service.
Below mentioned screen 1 is the CloudsBrain object storage module screen. It consists of an object. Object storage management allows creating storage, migration, monitoring, and management of multi-cloud providers like AWS, GCP, Huawei, IBM COS, Azure Storage, and Ceph.
Similarly, the next screen 2 is block storage which is another type of storage module of the CloudsBrain. Block storage management allows storage plus volume creation, snapshot, host, and app development.
Screen 1: CloudsBrain Object Storage Module
Screen 2: CloudsBrain Block Storage Module
Object storage helps to store a large amount of unstructured data in a highly scalable distinct unit. CloudsBrain storage feature provides object storage migration and can perform operations like create buckets, delete buckets, upload objects, download objects, and delete an object from a single platform.
2. Block Storage:
Block storage is used to store data files on cloud-based storage environments. Clouds Brain’s storage feature supports block storage that stores data in form of blocks with a unique identifier. The data stored in block storage is of fixed size. Volume lifecycle management, snapshots backup is some of the services offered by block storage feature.
Currently, block storage support following storage drivers:
In lifecycle management, users can control the cost consumptions in storing blob data. Object undergoes various transitions like standard, standard_IA, Archive which reduces cost consumption depending upon these storage classes. We can control object retention and deletion in the same feature itself.
CloudsBrain storage offers a seamless object migration across data centers, on-premise, public cloud, private or hybrid cloud with multi-cloud functionalities. Enterprises boost their cloud storage migration journey with CloudsBrain storage seamless migration.
Click2Cloud CloudsBrain supports a heterogeneous platform that includes object storage, on-premise block storage, and cloud volume. Heterogeneous storage support helps in reducing reliance on a single vendor, increasing flexibility, cost-efficiency, adherence to local policies.
CloudsBrain storage studio helps in disaster recovery of data and gives a complete backup using snapshots of block storage.
Storage studio helps to store analytical and AI data. This work as a data framework and tons of data can be store on top of it.
Data protection, lifecycle management, data operations, storage management are the cloud-native solutions for multi-data management storage.
Storage studio saves overall production cost, infrastructure cost, and provides a large-scale storage capacity over the cloud, and on-premise.
Storage studio helps in the management of data lifecycle to move data across storage tiers, and archival for long term retention.
A conventional storage system causes hardware failure, loss of data, high cost, low-speed operation, poor accessibility, etc. Thus, companies are moving to cloud computing storage platforms for better business growth where customers meet better productivity. Click2Cloud’s CloudsBrain Storage Studio provides customers a multi-cloud storage platform for an object, block, and file storage, etc. This not only saves time and money but also leverage to disaster recovery, better productivity, more customer insights, and business growth.
Businesses and organizations are moving their workload to the cloud for better agility, performance, and security. Cloud computing is the bellwether of hosting applications and databases to improve the overall efficiency of business processes. The disparity between the on-premise workload and cloud environment workload often results in businesses migrating the workload to the cloud. Cloud technology shows impeccable growth contributing to the adoption of cloud-based computing across many businesses and organizations.
Centaurus, a next-generation cloud for the telecom sector, is an open-source project for building cloud infrastructure platform that can be used to build and manage public or private clouds, edge computing, and edge device datacenter. It is a solution to address key challenges of large-scale clouds such as system scalability, resource efficiency, multi-tenancy, edge computing, and the native support for the fast-growing modern workloads such as containers and serverless functions. Centaurus helps in creating multiple nodes, managing infrastructure, containerizing the environment, managing the pods, and many more.
Cloud computing is picking up the pace replacing the traditional methods of storing the data, accessing, and running the applications. Cloud migration is the process to shift the existing data, applications, and other business elements from data centers or one cloud to other cloud environments for better scaling. Organizations are shifting their businesses on cloud for more speed and agility. Migration to cloud gives the organization limitless computing resources.
Click2Cloud support enterprises throughout their cloud infrastructure deployment process and empowers them with private cloud offerings, a cloud framework for compute, storage, and network services. To get the benefit of hybrid cloud and Edge computing an enterprise can accelerate the use of OpenStack, Apsara Stack, and Azure Stack services to transform technologies into cloud and deep industry growth to deliver abiding value.
This blog will give you a complete understanding on billing, budget, and cloud cost optimization. Cloud cost management is as important as knowing your bills. It is important to know your cloud spends and which cloud offers you a good service at minimal costs. Click2Cloud also offers you a semi-automated assessment platform “ CloudsIntel” to support you with assessment and migration plan
