Enterprise NAS File Services

Cloudian HyperFile overcomes the limitations of traditional NAS and supports your cloud initiatives with infinitely scalable file storage and multiple data management options. Maintain storage entirely on-prem, or span your on-premises and cloud storage environments. HyperFile enables innovative solutions to store, share, and leverage information.

Cloudian HyperFile is a scale-out NAS controller that delivers file services from Cloudian HyperStore object storage systems. The HyperFile NAS Controller delivers unified support for file and object storage plus enterprise NAS features—such as SMB/NFS support, POSIX compliance, and WORM protection. With next-generation capabilities like multi-cloud integration and converged data access support, HyperFile is a solution that goes beyond traditional NAS.

The HyperFile NAS Controller delivers unified support for file and object storage plus the full range of enterprise NAS features—such as SMB/ NFS support, POSIX-compliance, snapshots, and WORM—all in a fault-tolerant, highly available platform. With next-generation capabilities like multi-cloud integration and converged data access support, HyperFile is a solution that goes far beyond traditional NAS.

Cloudian HyperFile NAS Controller

Scale-out file services from Cloudian HyperStore. Get SMB/NFS support, limitless scalability, plus enterprise NAS features such as snapshot, WORM, and global namespace.

Cloudian HyperFile NAS Controller

Cloud Enablement

Achieve full data portability, on-prem and in the cloud. Store data as files, then directly access it from S3-enabled applications — without traversing HyperFile. Migrate data to the cloud via integrated tools and gain direct access from cloud-based applications as well. Multi-cloud support extends your file data access to Amazon, Google or Microsoft clouds.

Cloud Enablement

Simply Beautiful

The HyperFile GUI provides access to all management operations via intuitive screens and wizards. A CLI is available as well, for automation of repetitive tasks.

The most complete enterprise NAS feature set in its class

Scale-Out Performance

Scale-Out Performance

Multiple HyperFile controllers can access a single namespace for scalable performance.

Multi-Protocol Support

Multi-Protocol Support

Supports Windows and Linux clients and applications. SMB (CIFS), NFS, FTP, POSIX compliant.

Limitless Capacity

Limitless Capacity

Scale from terabytes to petabytes, without disruption, simply by adding nodes.



Create non-rewritable, non-erasable files for compliance.

Non-Disruptive Data Migration

Non-Disruptive Data Migration

Migrate data from your existing NAS to HyperFile NAS storage device. Full data access continues without interruption during this background task.

Non-Disruptive Data Migration


Create multiple namespaces within a shared storage pool. QoS controls guarantee performance.

HyperFile Basic NAS Controller

Multi-Protocol Access

  • POSIX compliant

High Availability

  • Active/passive HA
  • Non-disruptive failover
  • Asynchronous mirroring for DR

User Authentication

  • Active Directory and LDAP

Acceleration Caching

  • Read and write file caching

Converged Data Access Support

  • Access files directly to/from object storage
  • Allows S3-enabled applications to directly read/write file data

Data Migration to S3 Object Storage

  • Legacy NAS/file server to HyperFile


  • Up to 64 namespaces per controller

HyperFile Enterprise NAS Controller

All HyperFile Basic features, plus:


  • Point-in-time copies of file systems
  • For data protection of single files or entire file systems


  • Allows NAS Controllers to be located across multiple sites with access to a common namespace
  • Global namespace
  • Multi-controller access
  • File versioning

Additional Features


  • Provides secure data retention
  • Data immutability for regulatory compliance


Full Suite of Enterprise File Services

Supports users and applications with SMB/NFS/FTP, plus Active Directory and LDAP integration. Object versioning and WORM capabilities.

Limitlessly Scalable Infrastructure Consolidation

Unified storage for both files and objects with limitless capacity scalability and multi-controller support.

New Options for Cloud Integration

Three features combine to open new data management options: Multi-cloud support, converged data access, and data migration/replication.

Maximum Uptime

Multiple levels of redundancy, up to 14 nines data durability, and integrated DR options.

Superior Value

Scale capacity at cloud-like costs. Leverage the latest server and storage technology with pre-configured HA appliances or deploy on the industry-standard servers you choose.


Enterprise File Services Platform

POSIX-compliant file system provides multi-protocol access that is fully compatible with NFS and SMB (CIFS) clients. User authentication via Active Directory and LDAP.

Object Versioning for Data Protection

Generate point-in-time copies of filesystem data for data protection by leveraging object versioning.

WORM for Data Immutability

Create non-rewritable, non-erasable data to prevent files from being altered or deleted until a predetermined or default retention date. Multi-tenancy lets you create WORM-enabled storage within a shared environment.

Converged Data Access

Directly access file data from object storage without traversing the HyperFile controller. S3-enabled applications can directly read and write file data to object storage—on-prem or in the cloud. Write file data with S3 and read with HyperFile or the reverse. Access S3-compatible storage via both file-based apps and S3-compatible apps.

Multi-Cloud Support

Integrated support for Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google GCP. Store data on-prem, then replicate or migrate to the cloud platform of your choice.


When a single cluster is shared by multiple groups or clients, multi-tenancy lets you assign separate namespaces to each group for isolation and segregated management. QoS at the storage level lets you guarantee performance to each group.

Data Protection and Replication

Replicate data to multiple locations for global content distribution. HyperFile can be deployed at remote sites, connected via WAN to a central HyperStore cluster.

Data Migration Engine for Non-Disruptive Implementation

Integrated data migration capabilities help you execute non-disruptive data migration from conventional NAS to Cloudian HyperFile. All migration occurs as a background task, allowing continuous file access during the process.

Local Caching

Each HyperFile NAS Controller includes local caching to accelerate read/write performance. You may select the appropriate cache size for your usage profile to optimize cost vs performance.

Appliance or Virtual Machine

Cloudian HyperFile is available either as a pre-configured, fully-supported appliance or as a virtual machine.

Scale-Out File Services

Independently scale performance and capacity with multiple NAS Controllers.
