Gluster Teams Up with Savage IO to Provide Cost-Effective NAS Storage

Storage systems manufacturer adds GlusterFS to deliver high-performance, scale-out storage system to help organizations control rising storage costs

Sunnyvale, Calif. – September 13, 2011 – Gluster, the leading provider of scale-out, open source storage solutions, today announced a partnership with Savage IO, a veteran owned company that designs, manufactures and sells cutting edge NAS network storage servers . Savage IO has integrated GlusterFS into its American-made data storage systems for on-premise, virtual and cloud environments to deliver high functionality and performance cost effectively.

“As data center demands increase, storage requirements are also increasing, leading to rising costs. At Savage IO, we are focused on controlling these costs while delivering performance, scalability and reliability,” said Joshua Roberto, CEO of Savage IO. “We assure our customers of the best price performance and reliability, without the reflections, bottlenecks and signal loss often associated with cheaper parts. This commitment makes this the ideal partnership as Gluster is also dedicated to providing high performance, reliable storage at a cost that doesn’t break enterprise budgets.”

Three characteristics set Savage IO apart from traditional storage vendors: hardware, design and costs. The company focuses on delivering a flawless infrastructure that enables customers to integrate this new solution into their existing networks, without the fear of vendor lock-in. By designing a more effective system, Savage IO provides a denser storage that can be utilized with fewer units and an overall decrease in footprint and total cost of ownership.

Gluster and Savage IO are working closely to help customers get the most out of their storage infrastructure. Savage IO’s infrastructure, matched with Gluster’s innovative scale-out storage software, enables customers to control costs while delivering the performance and reliability they need to have a successful storage deployment. Currently, Savage IO customers are using GlusterFS in a wide range of industries and use cases including healthcare, financial services and private cloud deployments.

“Storage costs have been increasing dramatically due to the explosion of data and enterprise budgets are straining under the weight of high-cost storage systems from traditional vendors,” said Jeff Olson, senior director of channel sales at Gluster. “By partnering with Savage IO, we are uniting two companies focused on the same mission–delivering quality storage solutions cost effectively.”
