It's Red Hat Summit week, with this year’s edition taking place in San Francisco! As always, Red Hat has a plethora of announcements this week.
If you haven’t already heard the news, yesterday we announced substantial customer adoption momentum with container-native storage from Red Hat. Customers such as Lufthansa Technik, Aragonesa de Servious Telematico (AST), Generali Switzerland, IHK-GfI, and Vorwerk (amongst many more) are using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform for cloud-native applications and are representative of how organizations are seeking out scalable, fully integrated, developer friendly storage for containers.
Based on Red Hat Gluster Storage, container-native storage from Red Hat offers these organizations scalable, persistent storage for containers across hybrid clouds with increased application portability. Tightly integrated with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, container-native storage from Red Hat can be used to persist not only application data but data for logging, metrics, and the container registry. The deep integration with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform helps developers easily provision and manage elastic storage for applications and offers a single point of support. Customers use container-native storage to persist data for a variety of applications, including SQL and NoSQL databases, CI/CD tools, web serving, and messaging applications.
Organizations using container-native storage from Red Hat can benefit from simplified management, rapid deployment, and a single point of support. The versatility of container-native storage from Red Hat can enable customers to run cloud-native applications in containers, on bare metal, in virtualized environments, or in the public cloud.
