SUSE Enterprise Storage, powered by Ceph, a highly scalable and resilient software based storage solution, enables organisations to build cost-efficient and highly scalable storage using commodity off-the-shelf servers and disk drives.
It is self-managing and delivers storage functionality comparable to mid- and high-end storage products at a fraction of the cost.
The latest intelligent software-defined storage management solution from SUSE is the first commercially supported solution based on the Jewel release of the Ceph open source project, ensuring customers are first to get supported and easy access to the rapidly advancing Ceph community innovation.
“Bringing Ceph storage innovation to market first—enterprise ready and fully supported—makes our customers more agile and able to take advantage of rapidly emerging innovation in their own enterprises,” said Michael Miller, president of strategy, alliances and marketing at SUSE.
“SUSE Enterprise Storage 3 lets them transform their storage infrastructure with the ability to seamlessly adapt new technologies using cost-efficient, resilient and redundant storage infrastructures on commodity hardware.”
Arun Chandrasekaran, research vice president, and Julia Palmer, research director, at Gartner, noted, “High acquisition, maintenance and exit costs for proprietary storage platforms are affecting infrastructure and operations budgets and hindering the funding of new projects. The primary benefits of open source software are freedom, innovation and flexibility, with costs as an ancillary reward.”*
