Red Hat Gluster Storage Scales Out on Google Cloud Platform

Red Hat has expanded its alliance with Google to deliver Red Hat Gluster Storage on Google Cloud Platform.

Red Hat Gluster Storage is a shared-nothing, scale-out solution available to Google Cloud Platform customers seeking elastic and robust file storage across public and hybrid cloud environments. It enables customers to deploy the same storage technology on-premises and on Google Cloud Platform so users can take their existing applications with them as they move into the cloud.

Aggregating multiple Google Persistent Disks allows Red Hat Gluster Storage to create a single, more secure and highly available storage pool that can scale to petabytes of data in minutes without disruption.

“Storage has evolved beyond a hardware-centric approach, especially as enterprises increasingly build and deploy applications on-premises and in public and hybrid clouds. Modern applications need flexible storage solutions that can scale-out as business needs change, managing petabytes of data in a variety of environments. We are excited to expand our alliance with Google to bring even more choice to the hybrid cloud: whether on-premise or in the public cloud with Google Cloud Platform, customers can rely on their Red Hat Gluster Storage to meet growing storage needs,” stated Ranga Rangachari, vice president and general manager, Storage and Big Data, Red Hat.
