Traditional Storage Limits Innovation

Hardware-based storage segregates information, making it hard to find, access, and manage. Adding capacity to your traditional system often disrupts access to data. And if your hardware fails, it can bring your business to a standstill.

Red Hat® Gluster Storage (formerly Red Hat Storage Server) is different. It's open, software-defined file storage that scales out as much as you need. You can easily and securely manage big, unstructured, and semistructured data at a fraction of the cost of traditional storage. And only Red Hat lets you deploy the same storage on premise or in a public or hybrid cloud.

Fast, simple deployment

Build a secure, thin-provisioned, multitenant storage system in just minutes. With a few mouse clicks, deploy additional storage in seconds.

Advanced data protection

Erasure coding reduces capacity requirements, and bit-rot detection helps preserve the integrity of your data assets.

Better performance

No metadata server means no performance bottlenecks, and storage tiering functionality enhances performance for your frequently accessed files.

Anywhere, anytime data access

Employees can access and share files from any device while IT has the convenience of a single management point across multiple data storage locations.
