Plugins Connectors to manage hybrid storage.

Hybrid Storage Management

NAS, Cloud, Tape Storage Management

We built connectors to unify the access of different types of storage systems. 

Nodeum - Product Shoot - Storage Manager

Nodeum Storage Manager is positioned as an adequate response to the need to abstract different storage silos such as disk tapes, and the cloud. This includes Pool management to identify these two types of  Storage:

  1. Primary Storage which is the first layer where the production of the Data is managed. Enterprise needs very fast disk, very low latency, and high IOPS.
  2. Secondary Storage which is where data are cascaded from the primary storage, often it is the storage layer is located the data is less often used. The secondary storage can be a NAS, a private Cloud, a Public Cloud, or even a Tape Library. All of these are behind the same logical interface.

In addition, pool management is also specially designed for tape management. This provides a logical abstraction on top of multiple tapes and allows to archive of a large set of data to tapes without preparation of the source directory. This simplifies the day-to-day management; it is very easier for the archiving team.

Nodeum extends its support for storage mounted by their proper client in addition to the storage types it already supports.

This feature enables Nodeum to perform data mover operations on a wider range of storage types, providing greater flexibility and versatility in managing data.

It can support storage devices that are directly connected to a client and mounted on a local directory.

By supporting storage mounted by their proper client, Nodeum can provide more comprehensive data management capabilities and increase the efficiency of data transfer operations.

SMB storage protocol provides a reliable and efficient way for users to access and share files stored on a network.

Its versatility and ease of use make it an ideal solution for collaborative work environments, and its advanced security features help ensure that data is accessed securely. This is a valuable feature that enhances the platform's capabilities and provides users with an efficient and secure file sharing solution.

One of the primary advantages of using SMB is its ease of use. It is supported by most operating systems and devices, including Windows, macOS, Linux. With this protocol, users can easily access files remotely from any NAS or SMB compatible device.

Network File System (NFS) is a distributed file system protocol allowing client computer to access files over a network. 

With its support for both versions, users can choose the protocol that best suits their needs, whether they require an established and reliable protocol like NFSv3 or the advanced security and performance features of NFSv4.

This provides an ideal solution for organizations that need to share files across multiple devices while maintaining security and efficiency.

S3 protocol format is supported and recognized  for seamless communication with object storage.

It ensures a reliable and secure connection with a variety of object storage providers, whether public or private. Nodeum boasts an impressive compatibility matrix that covers a wide range of technologies and vendors, enabling users to effortlessly integrate Nodeum into their existing storage infrastructure.

The compatibility matrix highlights the versatility of Nodeum and its ability to communicate with various storage providers such as AWS S3, Microsoft Azure Blob Storage, Google Cloud Storage, and many more. Users can confidently manage their data movement workflows, knowing that their storage infrastructure is fully supported.

User are preventing by any vendor lock-in and allowing them to schedule data movement between different cloud providers. The platform supports a wide range of cloud storage providers, including public and private clouds, and provides the ability to migrate data between them seamlessly.

With Nodeum, customers have the freedom to choose the cloud provider that best suits their needs, and can easily switch to another provider without the worry of being locked-in. The platform also provides customers with complete control over the frequency of data movement, allowing them to schedule it as per their requirements.

Nodeum's advanced data management features ensure that data is securely and efficiently moved between different cloud providers, without any loss or corruption. The platform also offers data encryption capabilities, providing an extra layer of security for data in transit. Overall, Nodeum provides a highly flexible and secure solution for customers to manage their data across different cloud providers, without any restrictions or limitations.


Nodeum supports Server-side encryption which is about protecting data at rest, it encrypts only the object data, not object metadata. The 3 types of Amazon's Server-Site Encryption modes: SSE-S3, SSE-C, and SSE-KMS are available.


Asset 36-1

Nodeum supports the Swift protocol in addition to the S3 protocol.

This includes the full integration with the OpenStack Swift object storage platform and Nodeum Swift storage configuration includes the full support of Keystone version.

This integration enables user to take the advantage of the scalability and durability of Swift storage. User can easily create and manage workflows that copy or move data to and from containers and Swift Object Storage using Nodeum's interface or API.

Library Manager brings the capability to address any SCSI driven Tape Library, ACSLS Tape Library and Standalone Tape Drives. Most of known systems are supported. LTO Tape Drives from LTO5 to LTO9 are supported.


TapeAlerts are collected by Nodeum from tape drives and tapes. These information provides a status monitoring and problem detection capability for tape devices and tape directly from the tape and the tape drive.


Nodeum uses the LTFS open format to write data on magnetic tapes. The LTFS format (Linear Tape File System) is a format supported by the drive and tape library manufacturers which are the founders of the LTO Ultrium consortium. This format has existed since the LTO-5 generation. It offers the unique feature to store both data and index data on tape.

A tape written with the LTFS format can be read independently of any storage system and offers a file system to access the data written on that tape. The LTFS drivers for any kind of operating system can read the index and then execute functions like copy, update or delete. It is also possible to use a graphical interface for features like a simple drag and drop.
