Storage has always been an important focus for telecommunications companies, and it’s no different today. Distributed data, virtualization and cloud are all putting new demands on storage. To dig deeper into these topics, Red Hat is hosting a full-day event at New York’s Eventi Hotel on October 20 to discuss the latest trends and best practices for building distributed storage systems using Ceph and Gluster.
The event will focus on three key Red Hat Storage workloads: Object storage for managing vast collections of distributed data; OpenStack for powering virtual machines and their applications; and containers for enabling the convergence of applications and storage. Samsung will be featured in a session on non-volatile memory express (NVME) Ceph reference architecture for high performance workloads. And we’re looking forward to highlighting a telco customer in one of our afternoon sessions.
Also in the afternoon, our partner Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) will talk about using Ceph to decouple storage from compute in Apache Hadoop. To hear more about Red Hat’s work with QCT, you should check out my post . In it, I covered a demo of Red Hat Ceph Storage containerization technology and QCT servers at Mobile World Congress last February.
By the way, we are also hosting a webinar comparing Ceph and Gluster on October 19.
Whether you have hands-on experience with Ceph and Gluster or not, we hope you’ll join us on October 20 to network with your peers, hear experiences from hands-on practitioners, and learn from industry-leading hardware vendors on joint solutions built specifically to tackle modern storage workloads.
A detailed agenda and registration details can be found online. We hope to see you in New York!
