Software Defined Storage

Keep Pace with the Rapidly Growing Demand for Data Storage

For most enterprise-level businesses, the demand for data storage is growing much faster than the average price for storage is shrinking. That means you'll be forced to increase your budget dramatically to keep up with your data demands.

Thankfully, there is another answer—SUSE Enterprise Storage. This intelligent software-defined storage solution, powered by Ceph technology, enables you to transform your enterprise storage infrastructure to reduce costs while providing unlimited scalability. SUSE Enterprise Storage solutions provide a single unified software-defined storage cluster that provides applications with unified object, block and file storage designed with unlimited scalability from terabytes to petabytes, no single points of failure to maximize system resiliency and to maximize application availability following hardware failures.


For data without bounds, you need storage without limits

Explosive data growth is overwhelming hardware-based storage - and IT budgets. And there's no end in sight: IDC expects data worldwide to reach 40,000 exabytes by 2020. Most enterprises are unprepared to manage all this data, much less extract value from it. But not doing so can mean losing your competitive edge - and sometimes, business. Unlike proprietary, hardware-based storage, which limits your ability to keep up with today’s immensely growing data stores, the Red Hat Storage portfolio gives you an open, software-defined storage platform that scales across physical, virtual, and cloud resources - without limits.

As data continues to grow at exponential rates, I&O leaders are turning to software-defined storage (SDS) to improve total cost of operations (TCO), efficiency and scalability. In addition to vendor landscape information, this Gartner research paper talks about the benefits and limitations of SDS through common use cases.
