Key Features


Agile. Flexible. Highly Available. Red Hat Gluster Storage (formerly Red Hat Storage Server) provides an open, software-defined storage solution across physical, virtual, and cloud resources. Founded on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and GlusterFS, Red Hat Gluster Storage combines file storage with a scaled-out architecture that lets you efficiently store and manage unstructured data, providing cost-effective and highly available storage without compromising on scale or performance.
File sharding

Distribute files in smaller pieces across bricks in a volume, and improve heal and sync processing.

Enhanced gdeploy

Take advantage of new configuration options when automating system administration tasks.

Multithreaded self-heal

Handle multiple heals in parallel on Replicate and Distribute-replicate volumes.

Enhanced geo-replication.

Run geo-replication periodically to synchronize between clusters or schedule to run automatically.

RHHI for Virtualization

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Virtualization

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure (RHHI) for Virtualization integrates Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) and Red Hat Gluster Storage (RHGS). RHHI for Virtualization provides open-source, centrally administered, and cost-effective integrated compute and storage in a compact footprint for remote sites.

Central Virtual Resource Management

RHV Manager is a secure, web-based tool that provides central management for compute, network, and storage resources.

Optimize Storage Volumes

Replicated volumes provide high availability and high reliability for critical workloads. Arbitrated replicated volumes provide the consistency of three-way replication with less disk space.

Consolidate Resources

By using the same server hardware as both the hypervisor (host) and controller (storage), RHHI reduces capital expenditures, operation overhead, and deployment time.

Day Two Operations

Scalability (up to twelve nodes), fencing, geo-replication, and encryption enhance remote-office and edge-computing needs.

RHHI for Cloud

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Cloud

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure (RHHI) for Cloud integrates Red Hat Ceph Storage (RHCS) and Red Hat OpenStack Platform (RHOSP).  RHHI for Cloud provides an open source, hyperconverged solution to accomplish multiple platform-related datacenter and edge tasks with software-defined storage.

Maximize Resources

Colocate storage (RHCS) and compute (RHOSP) functions on the same host (as a prepackaged software product) with a unified lifecycle and a UI installation experience based on RHOSP Director.


Provides small, six-node configurations with potential to grow to a regional data center on a per node basis (up to thirty nodes).

Multiple Workloads

Deploy in both large central datacenters for the core of the network (data and call routing, record storage, etc.) and for the edge of the network (local call management, content delivery, etc.).

Hardware Consolidation

Enables standardized hardware without a proprietary commitment, which allows potential discounts for similar server types, simplified operations, and more efficient use of hardware resources.

Red Hat Ceph Storage

Red Hat Ceph Storage

Deploy a storage architecture that is massively scalable, software-defined, and ideal for the cloud

Block device storage and object gateway storage are available in a single solution. Red Hat Ceph Storage has a software-defined architecture you can integrate into your existing hardware and infrastructure for lower capital costs and more flexibility. Even better for your IT environment, Ceph Storage offers robust, multi-tenant storage for cloud and virtualization applications like Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.


Key Features
Collocated Containerized Storage

Isolate resources for peak load and recovery situations by colocating one of the scale out daemons in each storage node, thus allowing for creation of a cluster comprised entirely of storage nodes. Because this simplified strategy reduces demand for resources and hardware costs, colocation is an ideal scenario for TCO workloads.

Day One Management with Ansible

Go from download to available storage quickly. Simplified deployment enables you to set up OSD, MON, and Ceph Manager nodes with an Ansible playbook on RHEL so that your cluster is immediately ready for your workloads. MDS, RGW, and the ceph client role can also be optionally deployed with Ansible.

State of the Art Monitoring and Management

Gain insight into high-level cluster health, drill-down to specific nodes to identify performance gaps, manage volumes, or initiate cluster upgrades with the dashboard management interface.

Expanded Workload Reach

Migrate legacy workloads from a file-based application to an object store by using NFS v3 or v4 protocols. Platforms without a native driver (VMware and Windows) can access Ceph Storage via iSCSI, which delivers block-level access via an industry storage networking standard. Complement Ceph’s block and object storage capabilities with CephFS, which provides stability, protection from data loss, high availability, and full scale-out capabilities, such as multiple active MDS configuration.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage

Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage

Integrated. Containerized. Versatile.
Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage provides complete persistent storage and data portability for OpenShift across the hybrid multicloud.

Key Features
Integrated management

Improve the storage-provisioning experience for application developers through more control and efficiency.

Persistent storage

Dynamically provision persistent volumes for application and infrastructure services in their native interfaces.

Rapid deployment

Operator-based deployment quickly sets up OpenShift Container Storage on the cluster.

Multiple use cases

Data protection, availability, and portability for traditional application workloads and emerging application workloads that require both static and dynamic data. Choose from block, shared file, and object (S3) storage for your workloads.
