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.
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 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 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. Hot Storage is stiff for workload with small transaction, such as messaging, telemetry data etc.
Hot Storage is the server that accessed instantaneously optimized for lower latency and high transactional rates. It contains critical files stored at the edge for instant access. It provides a means to store, access, and edit edge storage data locally. Hot storage is local hence one can access it much faster compare to cold storage.
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.
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.
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.
We’re excited by the great work you’ve done to bridge cloud platforms, containers, and infra. The way you integrate so seamlessly with Visual Studio. Your solution makes deploying to containers look easy! Click2Cloud easily solves some valid and important customer needs.Best wishes, Tim
I can vouch for these guys. They have a legit solution and are quick at responding and moving forward on things.
As both a RedHat and a Microsoft partner, Click2Cloud has been working with OpenShift technology for quite some time, but its their Visual Studio (VS) integration that really shines in light. There will be a consistent experience for developers regardless of their choice of IDE. The integration allows OpenShift to be a target platform for deployments in VS, including bridging work done in Team Foundation Server (TFS) to OpenShift.
