SAN MATEO, Calif., Feb. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloudian, Inc., the leader in software-defined smart data storage, announced that Cloudian HyperStore has been selected to validate and develop faster data protection and recovery methods for wide-area distributed networks. The project, DESTCloud, led by Osaka University, Japan, will verify disaster resistance and fault tolerance of a wide-area distribution system across eleven data centers located in Japan.

When an earthquake or tsunami hits, multiple network failures can happen simultaneously, impacting vital business and infrastructure systems and data recovery. In this project, pseudo network failures will be triggered to verify the impact on data recovery speeds across wide-area distributed networks. Cloudian HyperStore was selected to serve as the multi-data center, object storage platform to validate efficient data protection and replication at multiple, geographically distributed data centers. The 11 data centers participating in the research are located at Osaka University, Kanazawa University, Kyoto University, Kochi University of Technology, National Institute of Informatics, Tohoku University, Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Hiroshima University, Sapporo DC, Okinawa DC and University of California (San Diego).

"We are honored that Cloudian HyperStore has been selected to participate in this exciting and important project," said Michael Tso, co-founder and CEO of Cloudian. "Cloudian provides a robust object storage platform that combines backup and disaster recovery in one solution for use in multi-regional data center use cases. When it comes to data recovery, we look forward to illustrating how quickly and efficiently backup data can be retrieved, saving the organization valuable time, which is key when responding to a disaster. " 

"The testing DESTCloud is undertaking is crucial to ensure the viability of data management systems during natural disasters and other network failures," said Hiroki Kashiwazaki, assistant professor, Center for Information Promotion, Cybermedia Center, Osaka University. "Cloudian not only provides wide-area data distribution, replication and recovery, but the company offers robust support and customer service. Cloudian is the optimal solution to enable us to test and formulate methodologies that can be broadly adopted for disaster recovery."

DESTCloud will undergo testing through March 2016, and the research and verification methodology will be disclosed to help organizations develop faster disaster recovery processes.
