Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud

Scale-out storage for public cloud environments

Red Hat® Storage Server for Public Cloud provides a fully POSIX-compatible, highly available, scale-out storage solution for the Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud infrastructure. 

Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud integrates hardened and tested GlusterFS distributions and Red Hat Enterprise Linux® in an easy-to-consume Amazon Machine Image (AMI) for rapid, seamless deployment of secure cloud-based storage.

BENEFITS & FEATURES

Optimized for Amazon Web Services

The only high-availability storage solution for AWS

Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud running in the AWS infrastructure is the only high-availability storage solution for AWS. It lets you aggregate both Elastic Block Storage (EBS) and Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances within the AWS environments, creating a highly available virtualized storage pool that can scale on demand to Gbps of throughput and petabytes of capacity.

Superior Amazon EC2 experience

Each Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud pools multiple EBS storage elements together, eliminating capacity limitations of a single device and smoothing performance variations across the pool. With Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud, Amazon EC2 customers experience superior availability, performance, and utility prices.

No application rewrites

Because Red Hat Storage Server for Publc Cloud is POSIX-compatible, there's no need to rewrite applications when moving data to the cloud as with cloud-based object storage.

Modular, stackable design

Configure and tune Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud to deliver high performance for a wide range of workloads. And combine modules as needed depending on storage requirements and workload profile.

More performance for your money

Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud uses arrays of EBS devices for consistent, high-performance access. And it delivers better performance than monolithic storage systems at a fraction of the cost. It’s ideal for AWS usage-based pricing, and you can leverage the EC2 hardware environment for a great return on your investment.

Scalable

Linear performance scalability

Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud delivers petabyte capacity with linear performance scalability.

Independent data and hardware management

Elastic volume management enables storage volumes to be abstracted from the hardware so you can manage data and hardware independently:

  • Add storage while data continues to be available, with no application interruption.
  • Rebalance capacity by growing volumes across machines in the system and migrating them within the system.
  • Add storage server nodes on the fly.

Unified global namespace

Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud uses a unified global namespace that aggregates disk and memory resources into a single pool, virtualizing the underlying hardware. You can grow and shrink the single namespace dynamically, with no interruption to client access.

Highly available

Data availability

Synchronous file replication ensures high data availability and local recovery among AWS Availability Zones for business continuity. Asynchronous geo-replication ensures resilience across datacenters and Amazon Regions for disaster recovery.

Easy to deploy and manage

Lightning-fast deployment

With Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud, in minutes you can build and deploy an on-demand cloud-based stroage environment in AWS that’s:

  • High-performance
  • Low-cost
  • Secure
  • Petabyte-scale
  • Multitenant
  • Easily managed
  • Thin-provisioned

And with just a few mouse clicks you can deploy additional instances in seconds.

Deploy in public clouds

Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud integrates the GlusterFS distributed file system in an AMI for rapid, seamless deployment in AWS.

Storage management simplified

Red Hat Storage Server for Public Cloud simplifies storage management in virtualized architectures, with thousands of VMs sharing one global namespace. Plus it includes easy-to-use performance-monitoring and analysis tools.
