Cloudian, a start-up based in Foster City, California, announced Series B funding from Intel Capital.

Cloudian develops software for distributed object storage in cloud and enterprise use cases. Cloudian aims to help enterprise IT and cloud service providers (CSPs) to deploy turnkey multi-tenant private and public object storage systems on commodity IA servers, scaling from two servers to exabytes across multiple datacenters with high reliability and elasticity.

Cloudian is actively partnering with leading cloud computing environments including Citrix Cloud Platform, Apache CloudStack, and OpenStack, cloud on-ramp providers, and the vast ecosystem of tools and applications that is afforded through true S3 compatibility. Cloudian's customers include Vodafone, Nextel, NTT, Nifty, and LunaCloud. The company has additional offices in China and Japan.

"Cloudian puts the power of on-premise object storage and S3 application ecosystem into the hands of IT professionals at enterprises and managed service providers," said Michael Tso, co-founder and CEO, Cloudian. "We are thrilled to have Intel's support in our quest to deliver Cloudian globally through distributors and channel partners, bringing Cloudian's rich features and economics to private, public, and hybrid clouds."
