Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source
solutions, today announced the integration of Red Hat Storage and Red Hat
OpenStack to provide customers with a proven storage and compute solution with
the benefit of being engineered and supported in concert by one company. Red
Hat Storage and Red Hat OpenStack give customers a full-featured storage and
compute solution today, a platform for innovation tomorrow, and a smooth
support experience during the journey to open hybrid cloud.

Using Red Hat Storage and Red Hat OpenStack make it easier to deploy and
manage the enterprise and public cloud with its unified storage services for
OpenStack supporting Block Storage (Cinder), Image Service (Glance) and Object
Storage (Swift) from the same storage pool. Red Hat Storage has the ability to
run storage and compute services on the same physical or virtual server to
further reduce the cost of OpenStack infrastructure. Red Hat’s open
software-defined storage capabilities that run exclusively in user space is a
key enabler for future OpenStack storage innovation like File-as-a-Service and
Hadoop running on OpenStack. Red Hat expects to be a catalyst in driving
community-driven innovation in these and other areas with the goal of
delivering the best functionality and user experience for enterprises
deploying storage in an open source cloud infrastructure.

Ranga Rangachari, vice president and general manager, Storage, Red Hat, said,
“Enterprise customers running mission-critical workloads on the private cloud
are interested in a Red Hat-engineered stack to make sure their OpenStack
cloud platform deployments are tightly integrated and tested to work
effectively right from the start. With Red Hat OpenStack and Red Hat Storage,
customers have the piece of mind that they are implementing a proven
enterprise solution today, designed for future innovation, that is completely
engineered and supported by one company – Red Hat.”
