Project Adopted From OpenSDS/SODA Foundation

Storage Studio

The mythical enterprise storage solutions are based on proprietary hardware and controller-based storage arrays, which are expensive and inflexible.

Click2Cloud™ has built a platform that accomplishes to address storage integration challenges, particularly in scale-out cloud-native environments with heterogeneous storage platforms.

It is about building a framework for celestial storage control. It abstracts the storage complexities so as storage from any vendor can be discovered, provisioned, and managed in the same way regardless of the computing environment.

Click2Cloud’s CloudsBrain with Storage feature offers object and block storage for a single clustered platform. Click2Cloud™ and SODA Foundation community together has built features like multi-cloud for GCP, CEPH, AWS, S3, Azure, Huawei, Alibaba, IBM, OTC as storage back-end.

Types Of Storage


Object Storage

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 objects from a single platform.


Block Storage

Block Storage is used to store data files on cloud-based storage environments. CloudsBrain storage feature support block storage that stores a data in form of blocks with 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 : Ceph, LVM, Huawei, Dorado, Huawei-Ocean Store, NetApp-Ontap, HPE-Nimble, Fujitsu.


Cold Storage

Cold storage is optimized for low hardware cost, high storage density. It is server whose purpose is to store the data that’s accessed less frequently. It has various practical use cases like archiving data for regulatory purposes, magnetic tape replacement, digital media asset archival and backup, and restore for disaster recovery scenario.


File Storage

File storage commonly referred to as Network File share is the centralized repository for files. It is very useful for sharing the contents across multiple servers. File shares can be accessed by instances into the Clouds as well as the on-premise instances and across AZs and Regions. Its snapshots help to create backup and supports LVM in CloudsBrain

Key Feature

Object Lifecycle Management

CloudsBrain provides lifecycle management, where users can control the cost consumptions in storing blob data. Object undergoes various transitions like Standard, Standard IA, Archive that reduces cost consumption depending upon these storage classes. We can control object retention and deletion in the same feature itself.

Seamless Migration

CloudsBrain storage offers a seamless object migration across data centres, on-premise, public Cloud, private or hybrid Cloud with Multi-Cloud Functionalities. Enterprises boost their Cloud storage migration journey with CloudsBrain storage seamless migration feature.

Heterogeneous Storage Support

CloudsBrain supports 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.
