Red Hat Storage One overview

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

General-Purpose NAS

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


Content Repository

Sequential Read Speed 18.7 Gbps
Sequential Write Speed 9.4 Gbps
   Capacity 384 TB usable, scalable up to 1.5 PB
   Servers 2U 12-bay Supermicro servers.
  Deployment Gluster deployment is automated for a 4+2 disperse (erasure coded) volume.
