Cloudian Joins the iRODS Consortium to Better Unify Metadata Cataloging
Cloudian is joining the iRODS Consortium, the foundation that leads development and support of the integrated Rule-Oriented Data System (iRODS).
iRODS is free open source software for data discovery, workflow automation, secure collaboration, and data virtualization used by research and business organizations around the globe.
Easily deployed in an existing infrastructure, iRODS creates a unified namespace and a metadata catalog of all the data and users within the storage environment.
With the iRODS rule engine framework, users can completely automate an organization’s data management policy.
Testing for HyperStore enterprise object storage with iRODS is complete, and users may now deploy the combined solution where local workflows require cost-effective, exabyte-scalable storage and ease of integration.
Cloudian HyperStore solves the capacity storage challenge for global businesses in data-intensive verticals such as media, healthcare and manufacturing.
Cloudian’s global storage fabric, geo-distribution capability, and seamless cloud integration provide simple, efficient data management across the storage landscape.
Cloudian joins Bayer, Dell EMC, Data Direct Networks, IBM, Intel, MSC, the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, NetApp, Quantum, RENCI, SURF, the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing, Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), University College London, University of Groningen, Utrecht University, the Wellcome Sanger Institute, and Western Digital as iRODS Consortium members.
