CloudScaler when combined with Caringo SwarmTM, object storage software, provides everything you need to deliver private cloud storage services secure within your data center or a public cloud storage service that can compete with Amazon S3.
Use existing user management and trusted access controls.
Use LDAP, Active Directory, and Linux PAM authentication for integration into existing corporate identity management systems. CloudScaler also supports token-based authentication for pre-validated access logins.
A robust access control mechanism allows for coarse to fine-grained control over access (public or private) to content within a domain.
Robust metering for cloud storage services.
Administrators can access a data feed of transactions and requests by domain - such as storage requests, attempted logins, etc. The data feed can be parsed to create detailed billing and accounting reports for bandwidth usage, access audits, and API request summaries. Graphical reporting is also supported through the administrator portal.
Control your service – don’t let it control you.
Easy storage management and flexible bucket naming is enabled by lightweight tenant and domain creation and allocation.
Access and deliver content using your corporate domain name. Virtual hosting of buckets is also supported through the S3 API.
CloudScaler is designed to give you control over rapidly scaling cloud storage environments. Administration is managed programmatically or through a web-based Portal that enables robust tenant and storage management.
Plugs into popular cloud platforms including Amazon S3.
In addition to a RESTful interface to Swarm’s HTTP 1.1 based SCSP protocol, CloudScaler also supports the Amazon S3 API through an extensible personalities architecture that can be used to seamlessly support addition 3rd party APIs. A broad range of applications that currently support the Amazon S3 API work directly with CloudScaler.
CloudScaler is seamlessly integrated with Citrix CloudPortal Business Manager 2.0+ and can work in conjunction with Apache CloudStack, Citrix Cloud Platform and OpenStack.
