Thursday May 30, 2013
2:00 PM EDT/ 11:00 AM PDT


Enterprise IT is diverging because of growing business needs with deployments in traditional virtualized datacenters and on private clouds powered by OpenStack and public clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS). This raises the question of data availability across these platforms and is a growing challenge for architects and administrators in IT organizations. Essential to addressing this challenge is to build upon an open and highly-scalable storage platform.

In this session, you'll learn how a distributed scale-out storage platform, like Red Hat Storage (gluster) , can be used for data availability between traditional data centers, OpenStack clouds and AWS. Key takeaways include identification of technical challenges and pitfalls, and solution architectures with use cases.

At the close of the session, attendees will understand:

  • What is open software-defined storage
  • How to effectively deploy open software-defined storage on-premise or in the cloud
  • Best use cases for this type of deployment
Who should attend:
  • IT Managers
  • Enterprise architects
  • Solution architects
  • Application architects
  • System/Storage administrators
