Overwhelmed by growing data stores? Easily manage all your big, unstructured, and semistructured data in physical, virtual, and cloud environments with our limitless storage.
Have growing data storage needs? The sky’s the limit with our storage.
Explosive data growth is overwhelming hardware-based storage—and IT budgets. And there's no end in sight: IDC expects data worldwide to reach 40,000 exabytes by 2020. Most enterprises are unprepared to manage all this data, much less extract value from it. But not doing so can mean losing your competitive edge—and business.
Unlike proprietary, hardware-based storage, which limits your ability to keep up with today’s immensely growing data stores, the Red Hat® Storage portfolio gives you an open, software-defined storage platform that scales across physical, virtual, and cloud resources—without limits.Gartner lists the the top 5 uses cases for software-defined storage
- Red Hat Gluster Storage
- Provides a scalable, reliable, and cost-effective data management platform, streamlining file and object access across physical, virtual, and cloud environments.
- Red Hat Ceph Storage
- Provides a robust, highly scalable block and object storage platform for enterprises deploying public or private clouds. Voted No. 1 storage option by OpenStack® users.
It's absolutely unacceptable for our application to be down in tax season. If it is, we make the news. The final architecture of Red Hat [Gluster Storage] means there are no single points of failure and it provides high availability all the time.Jeff Ludwig, director of product development for Intuit TurboTax Learn More
What is open, software-defined storage
Software-defined (or software-based) storage brings virtualization to enterprise data storage. You can scale storage, compute, and networking resources across on-premise and cloud environments, without being tied to individual hardware components.
But we've taken it a step further. Our software-defined storage is also open source. It draws on the innovations of a community of developers, partners, and customers. And you get the benefits of volume economics by running the software on standards-based commodity hardware or public cloud resources. The result is agile, scalable, loosely coupled environments for unstructured data storage.Learn how to get started with software-defined storage
