RED HAT SUMMIT AND JBOSS WORLD 2012 – Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the global availability of Red Hat Storage Server 2.0, the company’s scale-out, open source storage software solution for the management of unstructured data. Red Hat Storage Server 2.0 transforms the enterprise and cloud storage market by – for the first time – combining community-powered innovation with the volume economics of industry standard x86 servers across on-premise, cloud or hybrid environments.
Across industries, the volume of unstructured data – ranging from social media content, text and emails to image, video and audio files – is exploding as a result of digitization, mobility and our increasingly connected world, and dramatically outpacing the growth of structured data. By 2020, the growth of Internet-connected devices and sensors is projected to reach 50 billion, 1 a prediction that supports IDC’s estimate that the total volume of the digital universe – comprised of 90 percent unstructured data and calculated at 1.8 zettabytes in 2011 – will increase by a factor of 50 in 2020. 2 As the volume of unstructured data continues to grow, organizations are facing challenges managing both compute and data, and closed source, proprietary and monolithic hardware storage solutions may not be equipped to help organizations deal with this onslaught in a cost-effective or scalable manner.
Red Hat Storage solutions leverage community-powered innovation to address scale-out storage challenges. Red Hat Storage Server 2.0 is the industry’s first file storage solution to integrate easily with object storage, enabling users to combine larger amounts of storage into a single centralized pool. Unified file and object storage simplifies the management of different kinds of data, giving customers powerful storage and information flexibility, the ability to efficiently scale to meet exploding unstructured data storage demands and enhancing information access options in a more cost-effective manner.
