Fast and simple
Deploy a multitenant storage system in a few minutes—then scale it in a few seconds. With fast back-end storage for virtual machines (VMs) and automatic storage tiering, using Red Hat Gluster Storage is fast and simple. And did we mention that users can access the data from any device?Read the datasheet
The strength of open source
Red Hat Gluster Storage is based on the open source GlusterFS project, Which we stabilize so enterprises get a reliable storage system suited for unstructured, semistructured, and big data storage requirements.When the best ideas win, you can't lose
Agile storage capacity
Estimating how much storage you need was easy—a decade ago. Modern businesses generate more data each year, and that number is rising exponentially. Accurately predicting storage needs is no longer possible, and buying massive amounts of capacity upfront is wasteful. Red Hat Gluster Storage scales as you grow, so you can add or remove nodes, repurpose industry standard hardware, and respond to business changes without creating a standalone storage environment for each new initiative.It's flexible. It's scalable. It's Gluster.
Hands-off storage management
Using an elastic hashing algorithm, Red Hat Gluster Storage stores data without the need for a metadata server, thus eliminating any single point of failure. It monitors, tracks events, and easily integrates into open source monitoring frameworks such as Nagios or our other products. Link it to Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and your developers can seamlessly provision storage for containerized applications.Monitoring made easy
No vendor lock-in
Unlike proprietary storage solutions, Red Hat Gluster Storage doesn't tie you to rigid innovation cycles or specific hardware configurations. Sure, we can recommend hardware for targeted use cases, but our software runs on any x86 hardware, hypervisor vendor, container platform, or public cloud infrastructure.Storage that plays well with others
