Viettel IDC chooses Cloudian’s HyperStore for service offerings

Le Xuan Que, Chief Technology Officer at Viettel IDC

Cloudian® announced that Viettel IDC, a telecommunications firm in Vietnam, has deployed Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage as the foundation for its storage service offerings, including Storage-as-a-Service, Backup-as-a-Service and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service.

How will Viettel IDC leverage Cloudian’s HyperStore?

These services will bring the benefits of HyperStore’s public cloud-like flexibility, limitless scalability and native S3 compatibility to Viettel IDC’s clients, along with protection against ransomware. Viettel IDC’s cloud and data center services group prior used another solution but found that it did not provide the flexibility and full set of features its clients needed.

At the recommendation of CSC, a value-added distributor, Viettel IDC evaluated Cloudian as an alternative solution. “We found the Cloudian platform to be extremely robust, with an extensive feature set,” said Kien Dang, Service Owner for Cloud Storage Service, Viettel IDC.

“We particularly liked HyperStore’s multi-tenancy and quality-of-service features, the ability to set different access privileges and its Object Lock ransomware protection,” Kien added.

Why was cloud storage a vital incentive for Viettel IDC?

Object Lock enables users to create an immutable data backup copy, preventing cybercriminals from encrypting or deleting the data. In the event of a ransomware attack, organizations can quickly recover the unencrypted backup without paying ransom.

Commenting on the deal, Le Xuan Que, CTO, Viettel IDC said; “Another benefit of HyperStore is its integration with VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, allowing us to provide persistent storage for cloud-native applications running on-premises or in hybrid cloud environments.”

Viettel IDC has deployed 2 PB of HyperStore and will add more capacity as need grows. “We have one large client that’s currently creating 110 million objects per day and expects that to rise to 1 billion objects per day in the future. With Cloudian, we’re confident that we’ll easily and cost effectively be able to meet this demand,” said Hoang Van Ngoc, Director, Viettel IDC.
