Gluster Partners with Redapt to Deliver Scale-Out NAS Storage

Leading systems integrator to distribute Gluster’s high performance, highly scalable storage technology to better address today’s storage requirements

Sunnyvale, Calif. – September 7, 2011 – Gluster, the leading provider of scale-out, open source storage solutions, today announced a partnership with Redapt, Inc., an innovative data center architecture and infrastructure solutions provider. Under this agreement, Redapt will integrate GlusterFS with hardware providing customers with highly-scalable NAS storage technology for on-premise, virtual and cloud environments.

“With the dramatic rise of unstructured data, storage has quickly become a major pain point for enterprises,” said Matt Huff, vice president of business development at Redapt. “This partnership with Gluster brings a great technology to our storage offerings and is enabling us to offer a comprehensive, cost-effective storage solution that delivers the scalability, performance and reliability that our customers need to effectively run their data centers. Our customers are already experiencing the benefits Gluster has to offer.”

Gluster and Redapt will work closely to help customers more effectively manage storage costs. Gluster’s storage solutions have let thousands of enterprises deploy storage the same way they deploy computing today–as a virtualized, commoditized, and scale-on-demand pool, radically improving storage economics. Combined with the customer’s choice of commodity computing and storage resources, Gluster can scale-out to petabytes of capacity and GB/s of throughput at a fraction of the cost of proprietary systems. Gluster ensures high availability with n-way replication both within and between public and private data centers. Gluster is deployable both on-premise (as a virtual appliance or bare-metal software appliance) and in public clouds such as Amazon Web Services.

Redapt is focused on delivering tightly-integrated IT solutions assembled from the best technologies available to decrease operating costs and improve total cost of ownership. With deep expertise, Redapt offers competitive pricing, asset management and performance improvements. This new partnership with Gluster enables Redapt to continue on its mission to provide high-performance, cost-effective IT environments and allows the company to meet a wide variety of storage needs at a low cost.

“Redapt has a great track record spanning over two decades of delivering its customers with reliable, vendor-agnostic solutions that address the requirements of today’s and tomorrow’s data center,” said Jeff Olson, senior director of channel sales at Gluster. “Gluster is dedicated to creating storage solutions that deliver the flexibility and scalability while also keeping budgets in mind. We are pleased to be partnering with them to expand their product offerings and look forward to providing their customers with our innovative storage technology.”

Gluster will be hosting a webinar with Redapt on Thursday, September 22 at 10 a.m. PT. To register, please visit https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/474022710
