Concurrent Intros Software-defined Storage based on Ceph and Linux

Concurrent, which specializes in high-performance Linux and storage solutions, introduced a software-defined storage solution featuring an open-source Ceph-based object storage that supports the more demanding performance requirements of mission-critical applications.

Concurrent’s storage platform offers modular scaling, open hardware integration, on-the-fly capacity upgrades, and self-healing capabilities. Support is included for the latest disk drive and solid state storage technologies to enable ultra-high density configurations and scalable storage complexes reaching exabyte capacity levels. The system also includes an intuitive system dashboard and support for industry standard open interfaces such as OpenStack Swift, Amazon S3, HTTP, and FTP for easier installation, integration, and maintenance.

Concurrent’s object storage solution is powered by Concurrent’s open source, real-time Linux operating system, RedHawk, which boasts extremely low-latency operation, advanced tuning capabilities, and real-time determinism for guaranteed results. RedHawk and its associated optimization tools improve application performance by unleashing the untapped potential of commercial x86-based hardware platforms.

“Concurrent serves industries and customers that demand uncompromising performance, reliability, and flexibility,” said Derek Elder, President and CEO of Concurrent. “With our core Linux and storage expertise, we have developed a no-compromise software-defined storage architecture that satisfies the mission-critical performance requirements of a wide range of markets. With several large customers already signed up to deploy our new object storage solution, we are off to a great start and we look forward to continued progress as we approach the broader market.”
