"Storage is a critical element of cloud computing, and Cloudian's object store is very complementary to Apache CloudStack," said Kevin Kluge, VP of Product Development for Citrix and Apache CloudStack Committer. "We are pleased to have the Cloudian Cloud Storage Platform support the Apache CloudStack cloud computing platform, giving users powerful storage via a simple, elegant deployment."

The integration of Cloudian with Apache CloudStack unifies the S3 compatible cloud object storage service along with the file system requirements of the CloudStack cloud compute environment.  Users and their applications can directly utilize S3 cloud storage as they normally would with Cloudian, provisioned from a fully integrated cloud management console within CloudStack, allowing cloud service providers and their customers to access and administer cloud storage and cloud compute services via the product's intuitive user interface. Additionally, CloudStack templates and snapshots are centrally managed through the Cloudian service and available across datacenters or CloudStack zones via Cloudian's multi-datacenter storage capabilities.  The interface between Cloudian and CloudStack can also enable powerful application data backup and recovery within any cloud environment.

"We have been working to create a tightly integrated system with Apache CloudStack that combines the critical cloud storage platform components with the market-leading, open source cloud orchestration and management platform," said Giorgio Propersi, Cloudian General Manager, Americas and EMEA. "We look forward to working more with the Apache CloudStack community to help further advance the development and adoption of cloud computing."
