CloudScaler when combined with CAStor®, 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.
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.
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.
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 seamlessly integrated with Citrix CloudPortal Business Manager 2.0+ and can work in conjunction with Apache CloudStack, Citrix Cloud Platform and OpenStack.
In addition to CAStor'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.
The key to a successful, secure cloud storage service.
