The integration of Cloudian and Apache CloudStack unifies the S3 compatible cloud storage service along with the file system requirements of the CloudStack cloud computing platform. Users and their applications can directly utilize S3 cloud storage as they normally would with Cloudian, taking advantage of Cloudian’s S3 compatibility to deliver interoperability with the wide diversity of tools and applications found in the S3 ecosystem.
Additionally, CloudStack templates and snapshots are centrally stored within Cloudian and managed through the CloudStack service and available across datacenters or CloudStack Zones via Cloudian’s multi-datacenter storage capabilities. Cloudian’s Cloud Management Console is integrated with CloudStack to allow cloud service providers and their customers to access and administer cloud storage and cloud computing services via the product’s intuitive user interface. Single sign on (SSO) capabilities are also offered.
