Storage

Don't just store your data. Liberate it.

Now you can easily manage big, unstructured, and semistructured data in physical, virtual, and cloud environments.

Stone Age datacenter? Modernize it with open, software-defined storage.

Explosive data growth is overwhelming hardware-based storage—and IT budgets. And there's no end in sight: IDC expects data worldwide to reach 40,000 exabytes by 2020. Most enterprises are unprepared to manage all this data, much less extract value from it. But not doing so can mean losing business.

Unlike traditional, hardware-based storage, Red Hat® Storage Server is an open, software-defined storage platform. It drastically cuts costs, prevents vendor lock-in, and lets you add infinite capacity without degrading performance.
