Cloudian has announced new features in its HyperIQ observability and analytics solution, addressing the challenge of managing modern storage infrastructures that are increasingly distributed across geographically dispersed data centres.
Introduced last year, HyperIQ gives enterprises and service providers a unified management view of their entire Cloudian storage infrastructure, encompassing interconnected users, applications, network connections and storage devices. It provides intelligent monitoring, advanced analytics and health checks that enable predictive maintenance, enhanced security and resource optimization.
As a result, customers can reduce mean time to repair, increase availability and accelerate new deployments, thereby saving operational costs and making it easier to adapt to workload demands.
The top new features in the latest release of HyperIQ are:
- Cross-region replication monitoring—Ensure timely and reliable completion of data replication with full-stack monitoring of the system environment, including tracking of network traffic and performance between replicated HyperStore clusters.
- Federated management—Manage multiple clusters from a single HyperIQ management system in a single virtual machine.
- Ransomware protection—Obtain transaction details regarding storage objects that have been locked for ransomware protection, enabling organizations to identify unauthorized attempts to delete objects.
- Single sign-on—Allow anyone with a corporate account and appropriate privileges to access HyperIQ and information it provides.
In addition to these new features, HyperIQ provides:
- Intelligent monitoring—Complete observability with real-time interactive dashboards and historical data that include the ability to slice and dice resource utilization by data center, node, services and more.
- Customizable dashboards—In addition to pre-configured dashboards, flexibility to build one’s own dashboards from over 100 available data panels and drill into user or storage data at a more granular level.
- User behavior analytics—Monitor user activities, provide insights into usage patterns (such as uploads/downloads, API usage, S3 transactions, request sizes and HTTP response codes) and enforce security and compliance policies.
- Custom notifications—Custom alerts for more proactive monitoring of applications and flexibility to integrate with multiple notification channels such as Slack, OpsGenie, Kafka and PagerDuty.
- Customer health checks—Personalized monthly health checks with actionable plans based on trends and analysis from the customer’s Cloudian infrastructure as well as analytics from global learning across Cloudian’s install base.
“Today’s modern storage infrastructure is increasingly distributed across geographically dispersed data centres, both on-premises and in public clouds,” says Jon Toor, chief marketing officer, Cloudian. “HyperIQ provides the comprehensive view of this geo-distributed storage and related networking infrastructure, and today’s announcement gives enterprises additional tools for efficiently, cost-effectively and securely managing it.”
