We are excited to announce that Red Hat Storage Servers for Public and Hybrid Cloud have been honored with a 2013 Cloud Storage Excellence Award by TMC’s Cloud Computing Magazine. The accolade recognizes solutions that advance the cloud storage industry with innovative and superior cloud storage infrastructure and maximize storage efficiency for enterprise customers.

Red Hat Storage Servers offer a innovative open source software approach to storage, aligning with datacenter modernization initiatives while meeting the challenge of cost-effectively gaining control over the deluge of unstructured data. Red Hat Storage can be deployed across physical, virtual, public, and hybrid cloud resources to deliver a unified storage and data platform.

In a recently published IDC Vendor Profile on Red Hat as a Storage Solutions Provider, IDC stated, “The commoditization of storage and the open source storage stack is in essence a disruptive and unstoppable force that will change the ways of the traditional storage market dominated by vendors selling proprietary hardware and software.”1 IT management can capitalize on the cost benefits of volume economics resulting from using common-off-the-shelf x86 servers to reduce overall storage costs at scale while avoiding proprietary storage vendor lock-in.

Check out the new Red Hat video featuring Intelitek’s VP of R&D Alon Kadury talking about his experience using Red Hat Storage Servers for Public Cloud. For more detail on Red Hat Storage visit www.redhat.com/liberate.
