Gluster to Exhibit at Red Hat Summit 2011 Boston

Innovative cloud storage provider to demonstrate leading scale-out, open source storage solutions for public and private clouds

Sunnyvale, Calif. – April 26, 2011 – Gluster, the leading provider of scale-out, open source storage solutions for public and private clouds, today announced it will be demonstrating its Gluster Virtual Storage Appliances in booth 214 at the Red Hat Summit taking place May 3 – 6 at the Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center in Boston.

Gluster’s software-only commercial solutions give enterprises the ability to treat physical storage as a virtualized, standardized and scale-on-demand pool in much the same way they treat computing resources today, radically improving storage economics in the process. The Gluster Virtual Storage Appliances are fully-functional Gluster storage servers that pool storage resources under a global namespace, delivering high availability, linearly scalable performance and capacity, as well as elastic volume management, which enables data growth and migration to be easily managed with no downtime.

In both public and private clouds, Gluster enables enterprises to scale on demand to petabytes of capacity, GB/s of throughput, with n-way replication for high availability and unrivalled commodity economics. For private clouds, the Gluster Virtual Storage Appliances integrate GlusterFS into a virtual machine for deployment on popular hypervisor environments such as Red Hat KVM, VMware ESX and Citrix Xen and runs on the enterprise’s choice of certified hardware platforms. For Amazon Web Services (AWS), GlusterFS is packaged in an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) for deployment in the AWS cloud. The Gluster AMI is the only way to deploy high-availability storage within AWS and deliver predictable high performance during rapidly changing and demanding workloads. With POSIX-compliant file storage, n-way replication and the ability to linearly scale performance, petabytes of capacity, and GB/s of throughput, Gluster provides the fastest path to public and private cloud storage.

About Gluster
Gluster provides the fastest path to deploy open source storage solutions that deliver massively scalable storage for public and private clouds. Our open source software runs on commodity computing and storage resources (either public or private clouds), enabling customers to scale performance, capacity, and availability on demand. Over 120 customers have scaled Gluster in building block fashion from a few terabytes to multiple petabytes to meet the most demanding capacity and performance needs at a fraction of the cost of traditional proprietary and monolithic systems. Gluster uses a unified global namespace to virtualize disk and memory resources into a single shared pool that is centrally managed. Our scalable virtual appliances address the needs of public and private clouds, traditional data centers, and shared storage for virtual server environments. Our open source community has downloaded and deployed hundreds of thousands of copies of GlusterFS. Gluster is used by enterprises in a wide range of industries, including digital media delivery, healthcare, Internet, energy and biotech.
