Storage Made Easy and Cloudian Partner to Deliver High-Speed Storage Solution to First Joint Customer

LONDON, UK – Storage Made Easy™ (SME) announced today that Cloudian, the innovation leader in enterprise object storage systems, will resell the SME Enterprise File Fabric™. The new partnership debuted by closing the companies’ first joint customer, a leading international broadcast television company and digital platform.

This agreement gives users of Cloudian’s HyperStore scale-out storage system access to the full File Fabric product from Storage Made Easy, which simplifies data compliance with single-pane control across 60 different data sources. File Fabric provides best-of-breed technology to discover sensitive data and enforce security controls across all content, wherever it’s stored, in any jurisdiction. Object storage allows the storage of large volumes of metadata; File Fabric combines file metadata with access and usage patterns to identify business insights, enhancing security and productivity.


M-Stream™, a new feature within File Fabric™, enables high-speed cross-country or cross-continent transfers of large video files stored in Cloudian object storage. This new feature parallelizes large files, speeding up downloads and folder-to-folder copy, providing speeds of up to 10GB/second. This feature was important in signing the partnership’s first customer, which broadcasts over 5,000 hours of programming annually on its flagship network alone.

“One of the key strengths of Cloudian’s HyperStore is its ability to scale up easily – add a new storage node, and the Cloudian cluster automatically includes it in the single storage pool,” said Sanjay Jagad, Sr. Director of Products and Solutions at Cloudian. “This solution with Storage Made Easy ensures the transfer and management of data is also simple, and can accommodate the very large files that broadcast networks need to work with.”

A key tenet of the Enterprise File Fabric is to enforce policies for data governance and security, reducing organizational risk and increasing compliance adherence, a key factor for the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other data legislation such as HIPPA and FERPA.

Cloudian customers can also take advantage of the comprehensive collaboration tools that the Enterprise File Fabric offers: secure team folders with the ability to invite external users, document approval workflows, secure access control, secure audited file sharing policies, and much more, providing easy secure access to authorised object data.

Jim Liddle, Storage Made Easy CEO, said, “We have worked with Cloudian and its resellers in the past and I am very pleased to formalise this stronger relationship, and I’m excited about the mutual benefit the partnership will bring.”
