Red Hat* and Intel: Liberating Info, Redefining Storage

Cloud, big data, virtualization, social networking information, video and audio media serving, photos, documents, and search indexes are just a sample of the trends and activities that are driving an unprecedented explosion of newly created data. This massive amount of data spans structured, semi-structured, and unstructured formats, and not surprisingly, almost all of it must be backed up and archived during its digital life span. IT managers are faced with the challenge of efficiently storing and managing this bursting growth in data, driving the need for new storage technologies.

Scale-out storage subsystems are directly connected to processor-based servers to create converged storage and compute systems that are surpassing traditional monolithic scale-up models of storage. Old models are no longer a viable option when addressing big data issues. Intel is enabling storage features in standard server platforms, which in turn can be deployed to build enterprise-class storage systems. Coupled with Red Hat Storage, converged storage systems provide a turnkey-unified file and object storage solution for massive data storage requirements, allowing datacenters to scale independently on three planes: performance, throughput, and capacity—in both private and public clouds.

Summary
By combining Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers and storage resources with Red Hat Storage, you can build a unifed storage solution to handle massive data in the datacenter or in the public cloud. No other solution in the market can span the datacenter, private cloud, and public cloud with the same storage offering using open technology.
