Red Hat Ceph Storage 4 offers enhanced scalability and simplicity for data-intensive applications. It offers simplified, petabyte-scale object storage for cloud-native development and analytics.
In recent tests, Red Hat Ceph Storage delivered a doubled performance increase for write-intensive workloads.
“As modern data workloads add stress and complexity to storage infrastructure, it’s critical to automate housekeeping tasks to enable greater scale. With increased automation of data management and data placement activities, Red Hat Ceph Storage 4 helps infrastructure teams evolve from storage-centric to service-centric operational models,” Red Hat wrote.
The solution is optimized for organizations’ need to store and manage the rapidly growing volumes of data being generated by emerging workloads, without requiring additional operations staff to do so, according to Red Hat.
“The power of scale is lost if performance capabilities can’t match it. Red Hat Ceph Storage 4 significantly raises the bar on object storage scalability, performance, and simplicity, enabling our customers to grow their businesses and operating efficiency,” said Sarangan Rangachari, the vice president and general manager of Storage at Red Hat.
The new version includes:
