QxStor Red Hat Gluster Storage Edition

Software-defined Distributed Scale-out File Storage

QxStor Red Hat Gluster Storage is a pre-configured software-defined storage solution that is designed to meet file, unstructured, semi-structured and big data storage demand. The optimal configuration has been extensively tested for best performance to serve different workloads, allowing organizations to fast adopt the distributed file system and easily scale out at will. QxStor Red Hat Gluster Storage is developed to provide several major features, including:

Elasticity with petabyte scalability

Storage volumes can grow or shrink by adding or removing systems from the storage pool without application interruption. The cluster can be scaled from small to multiple petabytes independently, both in terms of capacity and performance.

Workload-driven optimization

Accommodating the target workload I/O profile is the most crucial design consideration. QxStor Red Hat Gluster Storage offers throughput-optimized QxStor RGT series for performance oriented cluster and cost/capacity optimized QxStor RGC series for lowest cost per terabyte or archive storage requirement.

High performance

QxStor Red Hat Gluster Storage provides fast file access by eliminating the typical centralized metadata server. Files are spread evenly throughout the system, eliminating hot spots, I/O bottlenecks, and high latency.

Reliability and high availability

QxStor Red Hat Gluster Storage has been thoroughly validated as a turnkey storage solution to minimize the adoption risk. Automatic replication offered by QxStor Red Hat Gluster Storage also ensures high levels of data protection and resiliency. For customers that are disk space conscious, Gluster also supports erasure coding. In addition to protecting from hardware failures, self-healing capabilities restore data to the correct state following recovery.

Industry-standard protocol compatibility

Red Hat Gluster Storage supports a broad range of file formats: native POSIX file system compatibility as well as common protocols including CIFS, NFS, and Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). The software is readily supported by off-the-shelf storage management software.
