Maldivica, a leading innovator of cloud storage access and migration solutions, today announces certification of the Maldivica Storage Connector for use with HP Cloud Object Storage. The Maldivica Storage Connector is a high performance virtual appliance that presents a file system interface into HP Cloud Object Storage, enabling customers to easily connect existing systems and applications with cloud storage.
The Maldivica Storage Connector provides both NFS and CIFS interfaces, making it easy to transfer data from Windows, Mac, or Linux/Unix environments into or out of cloud storage. The platform encrypts data using AES256 encryption with customer-controlled keys for data protection in-transit and at rest in cloud storage. The Storage Connector contains a powerful metadata engine, enabling automated extraction, normalization and tagging of metadata in cloud storage for over 1000 content-types. Maldivica ensures no technology lock-in by transferring content as individual objects, enabling organizations to access their data using the Storage Connector or through other applications using the storage API.
HP Cloud Object Storage, with its industry leading SLA, is an enterprise class, massively scalable storage solution designed to enable the next generation of applications. The platform is ideal for active data archival, static web and digital media content distribution, and storing large collections of unstructured data and content for big data analysis and processing.
“The Maldivica Storage Connector, used with HP Cloud Object Storage, provides the platform Enterprises need to handle not only the capacity requirements of the future, but the management and processing challenges that come with it.” said Robert Minnear, CTO of Maldivica. “By associating valuable metadata directly with the content, we’re enabling the next generation of applications to search, process and share data in ways that are impossible to do with traditional file systems.”
