Red Hat introduced Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure. Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure is designed to address these challenges by integrating compute and storage together on a single server, making it a well-suited solution for low-footprint remote or branch office installations and edge computing. Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure is the only production-ready offering with an entirely open source infrastructure stack and that is developed, sold and supported by a single vendor. An open source, community-based approach helps to avoid the vendor lock in of a proprietary approach and enables customers to take advantage of the faster innovation emerging from open source communities. By delivering a hyperconverged infrastructure solution with the software-defined components coming from the same vendor, Red Hat is aiming to help customers minimize troubleshooting and support headaches.
Ranga Rangachari, VP and GM, Storage, Red Hat commented “With Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure, customers can now provision compute and storage resources for remote sites to run local instances of applications with the same proficiency as in-office operations.”
Terri McClure, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group said “Red Hat’s entry with Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure is a promising start and well timed as more and more customers are looking for a hyperconverged solution which can address their remote site challenges as well as lay the groundwork for software-defined future directions.”
