Red Hat has launched a new software-defined storage product for unstructured data management using an open source standard.
The enterprise-class Red Hat Storage Server 2.1 is designed as a single software platform that delivers a scale-out backup, archive and data management offering for large workloads, the company said Tuesday.
Ranga Rangachari, vice president and general manager at Red Hat Storage, said the company developed the server's new features ao address business agility and continuity service levels and operational efficiency across public, private and open hybrid clouds.
Storage Server 2.1 fully supports OpenStack and has both new server management and supportability features and updated interoperability and security for Microsoft Windows workloads.
The latest release is designed to run on an Amazon Web Services cloud through the company's release of test drives later this month.
