What is Object Storage?

Object Storage is a way of organising and managing data into objects consisting of 4 parts. 1- The data itself. 2- The metadata that defines how it should be used. 3 -Custom attributes that give specific details about the files. 4 – A unique identifier to locate the object.


Object Storage is designed to be far lower cost than traditional File or Block Storage. It is used for big data repositories, back-up, data archiving, multi-media, IoT, Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) or other large data sets. S3 is an Object Storage Protocol.

Cynny Space Storage Stack v's Traditional Stack

Full stack object storage solution

Our S3 Storage solution includes all the elements of the storage stack. It includes the storage disks, controllers, front-end servers and all the software licenses. On top of reducing total storage cost, it simplifies the management compared to traditional storage, that is often comprised of multiple vendors.

Our onsite Object Storage infrastructure is plug & play. Additionally, configuration and support are included. No technical training is required, no other hidden costs: just add power and bandwidth.

Object Storage FAQ’s

Q: What is the price for Cloud Storage?

Pricing for Cloud Object Storage starts from is £0.02 per GB per month, however this discounts to £0.01 per GB per month based on scale

Q: What level of data durability do you support?

Each file is split by the protocol in chunks. Each chunk is split into 6 different sub-chunks. We then provide various erasure coding options:

  • Standard Durability – Single Data Centre Design – 2 copies and 2 parity of every 6 sub-chunks are stored. Each sub-chunk is stored in 14 different micro-servers. This has a 99,999999999% SLA on data durability


  • High Durability / Hybrid Durability – 2 locations – A copy and a parity of every 6 sub-chunks are stored in both locations, fully replicated. This has a 99,999999999% SLA on data durability


  • Reduced Durability – Single Data Centre Design –  1 copy and 1 parity of every 6 sub-chunks are stored. Each sub-chunk is stored in 8 different micro-servers. This has a 99,9999% SLA on data durability

Q: How do you charge for Onsite Storage?

This is typically a capital purchase which include licensing, 5 years warranty and support. However, we can support various commercial models.

Q: For onsite rack deployment, what networking switch do we need?

The Software Defined Storage rack comes complete with Dual Access Hub’s and Switches. This ensures a Rack is fully deployed without the need of any additional hardware of licensing. It only needs to be cabled into your local environment.

Q: What is the Minimum storage amount available?

For onsite deployments, this costs-in, once the storage amount is 240TB or greater.
