HyperFile Use Cases



Home Directory



Geological Survey

Home Directory

Support Windows and Linux users across large groups with scalable file services. Multi-controller support provides scalable performance. Implement either a global namespace for file sharing, or multiple name spaces for segregated access. Quickly recover inadvertently deleted files with HyperFile snapshot.

hyperfile compliance


For regulatory compliance, create non-rewritable, non-erasable data to prevent files from being altered or deleted until a predetermined retention date. Multi-tenancy capabilities let you create WORM enabled storage within a shared environment.

Video Surveillance

Integrate with video surveillance solutions to provide long-term storage of video data. Maintain records on-site, meet retention requirements, and quickly access data when needed with limitlessly scalable, cost-effective storage.

hyperfile disaster recovery

Disaster Recovery

Deploy Cloudian HyperStore clusters at two locations for DR purposes. Integrated data management features let you replicate data between the two sites, with the consistency level you choose. HyperFile snapshot capability lets you fail back to an earlier version of your file system. Deploy HyperFile NAS controllers at the remote location to provide local data access for failover servers.

Service Provider

Provide storage as a service with dedicated namespaces that ensure user segregation. Quality of service (QoS) controls let you enforce service level agreements within a shared storage environment. Individual HyperFile instances provide dedicated management. Deploy HyperFile as a virtual machine for rapidly scalable services.
