Red Hat debuts software-defined compute & storage platform

Red Hat has unveiled its Hyperconverged Infrastructure which is the industry’s first production-ready fully open source hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution. By combining innovative virtualization and storage technologies with a stable, proven operating platform, Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure is designed to help enterprises to bring datacenter capabilities into locations with limited space, such as branch offices and other remote facilities.

“Our customers have been looking for a solution to meet infrastructure needs across their entire organization – not just in the main office – but proprietary solutions previously appeared to be the only viable option for remote and edge installations. With Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure, customers can now provision compute and storage resources for remote sites to run local instances of applications with the same proficiency as in-office operations. Integrating our widely-deployed virtualization technology and our software-defined storage platform gives organizations the confidence of easier procurement, deployment and interoperability, ultimately enabling them to save time and money,” explained Ranga Rangachari, Vice President and General Manager, Storage at Red Hat.

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure is designed to enable organizations to deploy and manage distributed infrastructures centrally, enabling remote locations to benefit from high-performing systems without requiring extensive or highly specialized on-site support staff. It uses Red Hat’s widely-deployed virtualization platform, as well as software-defined storage, to more efficiently manage an integrated compute and storage infrastructure across a range of server hardware or networks. To accomplish this, this Hyperconverged Infrastructure was built with a suite of components, integrated to provide a unified experience from installation to management, including Red Hat Virtualization, Red Hat Gluster Storage, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ansible by Red Hat.

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure is available now.
