Red Hat is now officially a storage vendor. The open source operating system vendor released it first commercially supported storage system, dubbed Red Hat Storage 2.0, this week at the company's annual user conference event.
While the Red Hat Storage Solution is based on the open source Gluster 3.3 release, the final release adds in more than what the core upstream project delivers. In fact, it delivers more than the beta had in April.
Ranga Rangachari, vice president and general manager, storage, at Red Hat, told InternetNews.com that additional hardening as well as management ended up in the final release.
The new management piece enables users to manage multiple modes of storage. The new technology is called the Red Hat Storage Console, and it benefits from other efforts under way at Red Hat.
