Cluster-wide data management

Persistent storage for all of your stateful applications and cluster services. Performance at scale for data-intensive workloads, with support for all data protocols (file, block, object), and key data services such as data efficiency, resiliency, security, governance, and discovery.

Consistent operations

Apply consistent operational policies for security, configuration, compliance, and governance to Red Hat OpenShift clusters across on-premise and cloud infrastructures.
