Veritas and Red Hat Collaborates to Support Requirements for Business Critical Applications on OpenStack

by September 14, 2016 0 comments

Veritas and Red Hat, Inc. announces a collaboration aimed at supporting business critical enterprise applications on OpenStack. Building on their long history of technology collaboration focused on business continuity, storage management, and data protection solutions for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Virtualization, the two companies plan to work together to offer a predictable quality of service to OpenStack applications and workloads, regardless of scale.

Red Hat OpenStack Platform is a highly scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution that enhances OpenStack with advanced features needed for cloud environments. It is a co-engineered solution that integrates the proven foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux with Red Hat’s OpenStack technology to form a stable, high-performing and production-ready cloud environment. Veritas has selected Red Hat OpenStack Platform to build OpenStack solutions that provide a highly predictable quality of service to meet the requirements of business critical workloads with cost-effective direct-attached storage (DAS) using Veritas storage management technologies. Through the collaboration, Veritas aims to bring the ability to execute data protection tasks through integration with backup software without impacting production operations to Red Hat OpenStack Platform environments.

OpenStack has quickly gained traction as a cloud platform framework of choice for customers seeking agile, cost-effective and open source solutions. Indeed, the platform has seen increased penetration, with the 2016 OpenStack User Survey indicating production use of OpenStack at 65%, up from 33% two years ago. Yet organizations can still face challenges when it comes to executing their traditional, Mode 1 enterprise workloads on OpenStack due to the high performance and reliability requirements. Effective storage management that offers the necessary quality of service—regardless of scale—is a key part of successfully adopting OpenStack for these enterprise production workloads.
