Scalable storage: What's the best approach?

Unrelenting data growth has given rise to new ways for scaling storage. However, not every approach to scalable storage is right for every business.  Depending on what initiatives your company is implementing, one way might be a better fit than another.

This expert e-guide outlines two options for scaling storage. Read on to evaluate these options, and find out which one works best for your organization.

  • How to overcome storage performance shortcomings with Gluster Storage

    During the last decade, enterprises have seen enormous gains in scalability, flexibility, and affordability as they migrated from proprietary, monolithic server architectures to those that are virtualized, open source, standardized, and commoditized. Unfortunately, the same has not been true in the storage industry.

    Many of today’s storage systems lack the scalability, flexibility, or the economics that datacenters, workloads, and cloud computing environments need in today’s hyper-growth, virtualized, and increasingly cloud-based world. Thankfully, Red Hat Gluster Storage intends to fill those gaps.

    View the following technical white paper to learn how Red Hat Gluster Storage addresses performance gaps found commonly in storage systems today. Access now and learn how Gluster Storage provides users with linear scaling and scale-out, stackable architecture, elastic volume management, and much more. 

  • Meeting massive scalability needs: A Storage system to consider

    Driven by the Internet of Things (IoT), mobility, cloud computing, and big data analytics, unstructured data is now growing at an unprecedented rate. This unchecked growth has outpaced the ability for conventional storage systems to respond, both in scale and cost.

    Thankfully, scale-out storage systems can provide a compelling alternative to both proprietary scale-up storage solutions as well as complex home-grown methods.

    The following white paper introduces a storage system that offers massive scalability, high performance, and volume economics for storage of all kinds of unstructured data. Read on to see why this system is ideal for web content repositories, big data analytics, security analytics, virtualization storage, and more.
