Red Hat Storage is honored to have been voted a 2014 Innovation Leader by IT Brand Pulse in its most recent brand leader survey that included OCP, scale-out, convergence, and other categories. But that’s not all! We were also selected in the survey as a 2014 Market, Price, Performance, Reliability, and Service & Support Leader – Scale-Out Object Storage Software. The Innovation Leaders are selected by IT professionals in an independent, not-vendor-sponsored survey conducted early October 2014 among IT Brand Pulse’s over 1,000,000 members of 100+ online IT groups.
Why Red Hat Storage?
Ten years ago, you could easily estimate how much storage you needed and buy disk space accordingly. Today, businesses generate at least 40-60% of additional data each year. Predicting a maximum amount of storage is no longer possible, and buying massive amounts of capacity up front is wasteful.
That’s where Red Hat Storage Server 3 (RHSS) comes in. RHSS scales linearly instead of just up, so users can add or remove compute, I/O bandwidth, or storage when capacity and performance needs change; repurpose existing hardware on the fly; and respond to business changes quickly without creating a standalone storage environment for each new initiative.
