Fujitsu to Provide Hyperscale, Software-defined Storage in Collaboration with Red Hat

Fujitsu CEMEA&I

Munich, September 16, 2014 Fujitsu announces a collaboration with Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, to deliver a hyperscale, software-defined storage appliance for service providers and IT organizations that provides online data access in the multi-petabyte range. By integrating Red Hat’s Inktank Ceph Enterprise storage software with Fujitsu server and storage technology into a multi-node appliance, Fujitsu will make software-defined storage based on Ceph enterprise-ready by delivering end-to-end maintenance and professional services for the complete appliance.

Red Hat’s Inktank Ceph Enterprise delivers world class object and block storage software to enterprises deploying public or private clouds, including many early adopters of OpenStack. Specifically, the new hyperscale, software-defined storage system will address the storage needs of cost-sensitive service and cloud providers, research and public sector organizations responsible for maintaining large online archives, as well as media streaming and broadcasting companies. Financial institutions that require ad hoc access to historical data also will benefit from this new technology.

Fujitsu is focusing on Red Hat’s Inktank Ceph software-defined storage technology to address these industry challenges and enable the deployment of extremely-scalable, highly-performing and fault-tolerant storage environments. Furthermore, the new Fujitsu storage appliance will enable Chief Technology Officers (CTOs) to dramatically decrease total costs of ownership for storage.

Availability

The new appliance will be unveiled in Fall 2014, and live demonstrations will be given at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, the Powering the Cloud Event in Frankfurt, the Fujitsu Forum in Munich and the OpenStack Summit in Paris.
