Red Hat and Google Join Forces and Announce Scalable Cloud-Based File Servers

There are tons of ways to store, archive, and share information these days, including the Google Cloud Platform, Google Cloud Storage, DataStore, and BigQuery. Google is working to expand on your specific business needs and is providing a more “robust way to scale out (your storage) and scale up (your security),” according to Vic Iglesias, architect of Cloud Solutions. By teaming up with Red Hat, Google was able to create the “Red Hat Gluster Storage” for Google Compute Engines.

Create More Fault Tolerant Shared Files

What Red Hat Gluster Storage systems are going to be especially useful for is when users are creating fault tolerant shared files. The newer styles of saving information are highly available and make use of computing instances with multiple disks. This means that your business can scale up and scale out file systems with a distributed, calculated approach. You can future take advantage of higher performance, flexibility, and network scalability by using Google’s new “Persistent Disks.”

Free Up Space and Give Yourself More Availability, While Automatically Backing Up Data Remotely

Installation storage doesn’t have to be complicated. You can choose your disks based on the various performance or cost tradeoffs that exist. Persistent disks don’t require high performance or hungry workloads. They do render media, and free up spaces in your clusters, giving you more than 64TB of availability, as well as 15,000 IOPS availability.

In contrast to Persistent Disks, Red Hat Gluster lets users replicate their files across many different levels while simultaneously separating them to different regions to prevent them from being destroyed. You’ll always have a back-up standing by when you need it— which can be a monumental boon to any business.
