MILPITAS, Calif. – April 4, 2011 – Gluster, the leading provider of scale-out, open source storage solutions for public and private clouds, today announced it will host a free webinar that will reveal how companies can deploy highly available, scalable storage in minutes and manage data growth in a single global namespace in the cloud. Executives from both Gluster and RightScale, the leader in cloud management, will provide an overview of Gluster’s key benefits, including being the only highly available file storage for Amazon Web Services and a live demonstration. “Deploy Highly Available and Scalable Storage in Minutes” will take place Wednesday, April 6 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. EDT.

  • High availability shared storage
  • Business continuity
  • Seamless application data migration to the cloud
  • On-demand storage provisioning
  • Management of cloud resources
  • Usage-based pricing

“Cloud computing presents scalability challenges for IT and the need for highly reliable, elastic solutions has never been clearer,” said Garnett. “This webinar is a perfect opportunity for those interested in learning how Amazon Web Services, Gluster, and RightScale can enable them to achieve greater levels of scalability and performance in their cloud environments and find the fastest path to public and private cloud storage.”
