Japanese company adopts Cloudian software for high-performance storage

Last update: 10/07/2019

KUALA LUMPUR, July 10 (Bernama) -- A leading Japanese telecommunications and media company has deployed Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage software to meet the evolving needs of its niconico video streaming service.

As a result, Dwango will be able to repatriate application development workflows from the public cloud, taking advantage of HyperStore’s full S3 storage compatibility and accelerating these workflows.

Dwango cloud service department, datastore section manager, Toshiya Kato said: “We needed an integrated, scalable and easy-to-manage solution to keep costs low and support our rapidly growing storage footprint.

“Since adopting Cloudian, the operational load and cost of storage have been greatly reduced, as we are able to manage all our storage from a single point.

“We expect our data to at least, double over the next one to two years, with content demands also increasing.”

Before turning to Cloudian, Dwango built and operated individual storage solutions for a wide range of entertainment projects, including the niconico service.

As Dwango data continues to grow and demands for using that data increased, the company sees greater storage costs and inefficiencies.
