Red Hat unveils open source hyperconverged infrastructure
Red Hat has introduced its production-ready open source hyperconverged infrastructure.
Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure uses Red Hat's virtualisation platform, as well as software-defined storage, to manage an integrated compute and storage infrastructure across a range of server hardware or networks.
The open source solutions company says it is the only production-ready offering with an entirely open source infrastructure stack and that is developed, sold and supported by a single vendor.
Red Hat hopes to help organisations with distributed operations - such as those in the banking, energy or retail industries - bring data centre capabilities into locations with limited space, such as branch offices and other remote facilities.
"Customers can now provision compute and storage resources for remote sites to run local instances of applications with the same proficiency as in-office operations," says Ranga Rangachari, VP and GM of storage at Red Hat.
Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure was built with a suite of components, including Red Hat Virtualization, Gluster Storage, Enterprise Linux and Ansible.
It is available now.
