Silicon Valley-based file and object storage company Cloudian announced that the leading Vietnamese telecommunications company, Viettel IDC, has begun deploying Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage as the foundation for its storage service offerings, including Storage-as-a-Service, Backup-as-a-Service, and Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service.
In a press release statement, Cloudian noted that “these services will bring the benefits of HyperStore’s public cloud-like flexibility, limitless scalability and fully native S3 compatibility to Viettel’s internal and external customers, along with protection against ransomware attacks.”
Viettel IDC has already begun to deploy 2 PB of HyperStore, and is set to expand its capacity as its data needs grow as well.
Benefits of Cloudian’s Flexible and Robust Systems
Viettel IDC had previously been using another object storage solution, but were not satisfied with it as they found that it did not provide the full set of features its customers needed. Service Owner for Cloud Storage Service, Viettel IDC, Kien Dang, noted that “we found the Cloudian platform to be extremely robust, with an extensive feature set.”
“We particularly liked HyperStore’s multi-tenancy and quality-of-service features, the ability to set different access privileges and its Object Lock ransomware protection.”
Notably, Object Lock enables users to create an immutable backup copy of their data, which prevents cybercriminals from encrypting and deleting their data. This feature provides additional security and protection against ransomware attacks, because organisations still have access to a safe and reliable backup copy of their data which they may use without being forced to pay any ransom.
Le Xuan Que, CTO of Viettel IDC, added that “Another benefit of HyperStore is its integration with VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, allowing us to provide persistent storage for cloud-native applications running on-premises or in hybrid cloud environments.”
Director of Viettel IDC, Hoang Van Ngoc, said that “Viettel has one large customer that’s currently creating 110 million objects per day and expects that to rise to 1 billion objects per day in the future.”
“With Cloudian, we’re confident that we’ll easily and cost effectively be able to meet this demand.”
Viettel’s new arrangement with Cloudian extends Cloudian’s presence and reach in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region, where Cloudian already has an extensive customer base. Notably, even though Cloudian is based in Silicon Valley, it has offices across Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, and Korea.
The partnership will also benefit Viettel by enhancing the quality and security of its own solutions, which is especially timely given Vietnam’s strong tech prospects and drive for digital transformation.
