Open source solutions provider Red Hat have launched ‘Red Hat Storage One’ to provide customers with flexible and scalable software-defined solutions. With this launch, Red Hat will enable users with a plug-and-play approach to procurement, deployment, and performance tuning of software-defined storage.
According to Red Hat, customers are looking for software-defined solutions which require no customization given the rise in data volumes. They also say that organizations want the benefits of software-defined storage systems without investing in the skills that are used to configure the systems.
With their new solution, Red Hat say that enterprises will be able to meet their requirements by leveraging on Storage One’s workload optimized performance system. Speaking about the launch, Ranga Rangachari, Vice President and General Manager at Red Hat Storage, commented:
We are excited to bring together the flexible, software-defined power of Red Hat Storage with resilient hardware from our partner ecosystem to make software-defined storage more appealing.
Red Hat also say that they have partnered with Supermicro who are their first server partners to offer support for software and hardware of the solution. Excited about partnering with Red Hat, Michael McNerney, Vice President of Software Solutions and Network Security at Supermicro said:
The collaboration between Red Hat and Supermicro eases the acquisition, deployment, and support of software-defined storage (SDS) to petabytes and beyond.
Red Hat Storage One provides an ‘out of the box’ solution that provides the convenience of automated deployment with the flexibility of software-defined storage.
