Red Hat Storage One by Supermicro®

Scale-out NAS – powered by Red Hat Gluster Storage and Supermicro

Software Defined Storage Simplified

Flexible and scalable software-defined storage has already revolutionized storage deployment in the public cloud. Many organizations now embrace a software-defined approach on-premises that combines enterprise-grade storage reliability with optimized performance for specific workloads - while running on cost-effective industry-standard servers. At the same time, many desire a simpler software-defined storage solution that is easier to evaluate, procure, deploy, and support.

Red Hat Storage One by Supermicro dramatically simplifies storage deployment, and provides a ready-to-use Network File System (NFS), SMB, or high-performance POSIX-compatible FUSE distributed file system. It supports highly concurrent usage from hundreds to thousands of users, features multi-site geo-replication for disaster recovery support, and has common enterprise-ready features, such as snapshots, self-healing, and Nagios-ready monitoring.

Workload Optimized Configurations

Red Hat Storage One is available in two configurations specifically tuned for different workloads:

General Purpose NAS

  • Optimized for mixed workloads of small to medium files (64K to 50MB) with random access profiles (75r/25w).
  • Typical uses/applications are file sharing, user directories, active archives, and backup.
  • Data protection through RAID 6 + Server Node Replication (local).

Content Repository

  • Dramatically simplifies storage deployment for large-file workloads and is ideal for both video capture and video delivery applications, supporting both write-intensive (e.g., surveillance) and read-intensive (e.g., streaming) workloads.
  • Deterministic storage performance for seamless streaming and non-disruptive scaling.
  • Data protection through erasure coding.
