Red Hat has introduced Storage One by Supermicro. It provides a plug-and-play approach SDS (Software-defined storage) solution that can meet the company varying demands of modern workloads. Red Hat Storage One provides pre-configured, workload optimized systems on a number of hardware choices.
Ease of installation – Highly simplified and repeatable deployment process, due to Red Hat Ansible Automation-based quick install tool, combined with available pre-configured workloads for media content repositories and general purpose NAS, can enable organizations to implement Red Hat Storage One quickly and efficiently.
Workload and hardware optimization – The software-defined storage and underlying hardware are pre-optimized for performance and throughput characteristics of the specific workload addressed by each solution.
Flexible scalability – Storage One has configurations ranging from 4 to 24 nodes and is able to provide rolling upgrades as the needs of the storage system develop.
Cost-effective – Storage One is a perfectly viable and cost-effective scale-out solution.
Storage One has defined two workload categories which are:
- General-Purpose NAS
- Content Repository
|Sequential Read Speed||18.1 Gbps|
|Sequential Write Speed||6.5 Gbps|
|Capacity||120 TB usable, scalable up to 720 TB|
|Servers||2U 12-bay Supermicro servers configured with RAID 6 backends along with Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Gluster Storage pre-installed.|
|Deployment||Gluster deployment is automated for a replica-2 configuration with arbiter bricks to prevent split-brain|
