Packaged, persistent storage
Containers package code and runtime dependencies for greater application portability across deployment environments—but they're ephemeral by design. Red Hat Gluster Storage gives containers persistent storage that's scalable and secure.
Store, integrate, and analyze petabytes of data
Big data is a gift and a curse. All the data you collect holds the key to valuable business insights that can lead to competitive advantage. But the growth of big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) are straining traditional storage systems. Exploit big data’s competitive advantage with open, software-defined storage (SDS).
Large-scale media needs large-scale storage
Storage needs for media and entertainment are outpacing capacity and budgets. The transition to digital workflows and content has increased demand for digital storage. With lower costs than proprietary storage vendors and the ability to scale on demand, Red Hat Gluster Storage is ideal for the media industry.
Hyperconvergence has become mainstream
Hyperconvergence—IT architectures provided by 1 vendor that uses software to bind compute, storage, networking, and virtualization resources on commodity hardware—is gaining traction. Integrating Red Hat Gluster Storage with Red Hat Virtualization helps you build cost-effective, agile, and optimal virtual server and storage infrastructures across heterogeneous hardware platforms.
Customer success stories
Casio builds high-availability storage with software and commodity servers
To avoid vendor lock-in and enable self-operation and maintenance capabilities, Casio migrated to Red Hat Gluster Storage, whereby a virtual storage environment can be implemented using the internal disks of commodity servers.
Red Hat Gluster Storage enables the best possible use of existing resources at Metro de Madrid
Metro de Madrid needed to update its storage system with a new platform to improve the capabilities of the current high-availability platform and contingency. Red Hat Gluster Storage was the only solution that didn’t involve purchasing new hardware.
Goodtech energizes its IT infrastructure with Red Hat Gluster Storage
Goodtech ASA, a Swedish engineering company dedicated to renewing and developing important public functions, was facing growth challenges in their datacenter and increasing running costs. Using Red Hat Gluster Storage, Goodtech was able to avoid vendor lock-in and continue growing its business.
Saving the planet through climate research
At the University of Reading, the Department of Meteorology needed a highly reliable, available, and scalable storage file system to manage data for its scientific research projects in weather, climate, and earth observation. Red Hat Gluster Storage allowed IT staff to perform research instead of maintenance and administrative tasks.
