IDC Whitepaper

Software-defined storage reduces complexity

Build out a service-based datacenter and save

IDC's “The Economics of Software-Defined Storage” whitepaper shows how your organization can save up to 60% over a 5-year period with Red Hat® Storage solutions.

Modern applications have modern needs. And modern problems. Data storage, retrieval, and management continue to significant obstacles for organizations.

Shared storage wasn’t designed to address a data-driven environment where distributed scale is required. In order to meet these demands, a different approach is required—one that’s agile, scalable, cost-effective, and service-based.

Red Hat Gluster® Storage, takes advantage of commodity x86-based hardware and a distributed shared-nothing architecture that lets organizations build out an easily scalable software-defined storage infrastructure in an economically feasible manner.

Benefits of Red Hat Gluster Storage include:

  • Better storage and data management efficiency
  • Increase in application performance
  • Reduction in storage infrastructure costs
  • Flexible deployment - virtual, in the cloud, or container-based
  • Increase in IT productivity
