Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced its collaboration with leading IT providers to deliver new capabilities for storing and managing enterprise environments with extremely heavy data workloads. Today Red Hat delivers the first set of synergistic reference architectures based on its open software-defined storage platform with CommVault, HP, Intel, and Supermicro. Customers can now quickly and confidently deploy a storage solution that leverages existing storage functionality while easily accommodating future features.
The capabilities created by Red Hat and its partners are designed to accelerate and simplify the implementation of data back-up, content clouds, big data storage, and a range of industry-specific storage solutions designed to handle massive amounts of unstructured data.
Red Hat Storage with CommVault for Archive and Back-up Enterprise data management solutions built on CommVault’s® Simpana® OnePass feature and Red Hat Storage simplify data management and significantly reduce back-up windows over legacy storage solutions. This combination provides a converged process for backup, archive and reporting with an open software-defined storage platform that enterprises can scale-out to support petabytes of data and can be deployed on on-premise hardware or in the cloud.
Red Hat Storage with HP for Big Data Storage Big data is driving growth and innovation in organizations, but with it comes the need to efficiently and cost effectively store and managed data at petabyte-scale whether it is large files and objects, unstructured data, videos and media files, or machine-generated data. HP and Red Hat have designed a purpose-built scale-out storage solution to meet the datacenter challenges to save space, energy, and time when deploying large data workloads. Red Hat Storage open software-defined storage platform and the HP ProLiant® SL4500 server line enable enterprises to efficiently and cost-effectively store and manage big data growth.
Red Hat Storage with Intel for Content Cloud Storage Unstructured data is the fastest growing type of data in the enterprise today, fueled to a large extent by the growth in rich media content. Content clouds are emerging to provide a range of IT and consumer services for rich media consumption and distribution, requiring unprecedented amounts of data to be continually stored and managed. To meet this growing demand cost-effectively, companies have turned to standard Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers. Red Hat and Intel have created a content cloud storage reference design using Intel Xeon processor-based storage servers and Red Hat’s software-defined storage platform to speed organizations’ ability to rapidly implement content clouds.
Red Hat Storage with Supermicro for Industry-specific Storage Solutions Red Hat and Supermicro have collaborated to develop several industry-specific solution blueprints designed to maximize the value of enterprise storage investments. The companies have outlined unique solutions using Red Hat Storage and Supermicro servers and storage hardware for targeted industry segments, including telecommunications and media providers.
It’s great to see Red Hat continue innovation in data storage and management with their partners to provide optimised platforms to meet business objectives, it’s interesting to see that this includes working with Supermicro, Intel, CommVault and HP, I’m off to read more about the announcement.
