Linux, meet Object Unleashed

cuno software enables organisations to quickly and easily broaden the usage of their object
storage, to run applications without the need for code changes or updates

Save time, save money, on cloud, on-prem and hybrid.

Unleashing Object Storage

POSIX Compliant

Run workloads as expected, with user/group permissions, symlinks, hardlinks, POSIX ACL

High Performance

Forget gateways. Unleash the true potential and scalability of object storage. Tested at 10+ Tbps.

Native Object Access

Access your objects as files, access your files as objects, without those slow, unscalable gateways.

Without Scrambling Files

Unlike most other solutions, we don’t scramble files into proprietary object formats. Each file is stored as its object at the path you expect.

Quick peek demo

Super fast, Transparent and User-friendly

Cloud Access with cuno

cuno software has been built to be incredibly easy to use. Install the client in minutes (no special privileges required), or run inside unmodified containers.

Run your usual (unmodified) Linux tools and applications, but now with ultra-fast object storage. Access storage across cloud providers on the command line as though they were local. Open projects in RStudio. Quickly edit files in emacs or vi. Find things with locate or find. Sync folders with rsync or cp. Launch serverless Lambda transcodes with ffmpeg.

Even applications that come with built-in object support have been benchmarked at up to 10x faster with cuno.

Unlocking the value of your data operations

Incredible Performance for your Applications, Tools & Containers

Modern business relies on analysing and interpreting data that keeps growing in size. Speeding that up whilst significantly reducing costs can transform the scale and value of your data operations.

We all know that object storage offers low cost, infinite scalability and high availability storage. We also know there are usability and performance challenges.

Object stores have a completely different set of access semantics compared to classic file systems, requiring the re-writing of many applications. Existing platforms have overcome some access challenges, but introduced expensive and complex architectures of slow bottlenecked file gateways, caching tiers and vendor lock-ins.

cuno solves all these challenges.

Accelerating Discoveries

From Solving Productivity Challenges in Life Sciences

Our multi-award winning team have spent years solving productivity challenges in life sciences.

cuno and its precursor products are accelerating the discovery of new medicines by streaming 100+ GB genomic data files to bioinformatics analysis tools.

We are proud to now bring this technology to all organizations.

CUNO can also speed up object-native apps by 10x

Real-world Benchmarks with Samtools

Samtools is a suite of programs for interacting with high-throughput sequencing data and consists of three separate repositories. The Samtools application already includes S3 support, so we put its object access to the test, to understand if CUNO could enhance its performance. And the results speak for themselves. With CUNO + Samtools, we saw a 4.8x speed up for downloads and a 30.5x speed up for uploads (a geometric mean of 12x).

Download Test:
time samtools view -h ${​​​​​​​​DATA_FILE_IN_S3}​​​​​​​​ > /dev/null
Upload Test: :
time samtools view -h ${​​​​​​​​UPLOAD_FILE}​​​​​​​​ -o ${​​​​​​​​DATA_FILE_IN_S3}​​​​​​​​-upload

Yes. When CUNO is installed, you can use standard CLI commands (like `cp` and `mv`) to migrate your file system data to all supported Object Stores. You can verify your transfers by performing checksum calculations using `md5sum` to be 100% confident of data integrity. File access control would need to be undertaken separately on the Object Storage to apply permissions.
