Red Hat introduces Red Hat Storage Server

Red Hat introduces Red Hat Storage Server 

The company says that Red Hat Storage 3 is well suited for data-intensive enterprise workloads like big data and enterprise file sharing and will improve operational efficiency.

“Red Hat is committed to providing enterprise customers with a comprehensive open, software-defined storage portfolio spanning physical, virtual and cloud environments,” said Ranga Rangachari, VP and GM, storage and Big Data, Red Hat, in a press release. “With this latest release, Red Hat is leading the charge on open, software-defined storage to help build agile enterprises that can rapidly gain competitive advantage by leveraging the tangible value hidden inside unstructured data.”

Based on open source GlusterFS 3.6 file system and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, Red Hat Storage Server 3 is designed to support petabytes of data. It increases scale and capacity by more than three times with support for up to 60 drives per server, providing a usable capacity of up to 19 petabytes per cluster. It allows volume snapshots of critical data and comprehensive monitoring of the storage cluster like Nagios and SNMP.

Red Hat Server 3 integrates with big data analytics environments and supports a Hadoop File System Plug-In that runs Apache Hadoop workloads on the storage server. Users can add Red Hat Storage Server to existing pre-installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux deployments.

The Server 3 has ecosystem support from its partners including Cisco and HP. Red Hat Storage Server 3 complements the July 2014 delivery of Red Hat’s Inktank Ceph Enterprise version 1.2.
