How Red Hat assembled an open source hyper-converged platform
By combining @Gluster Storage with its @Red Hat #Virtualization #software, Red Hat has thrown its own cap into the software-only #HCI ring with an open source offering. Red Hat Inc. jumped into the #hyperconvergence fray with the release of its own HCI offering. The product targets
organizations that want to implement hyper-converged systems in branch offices or for other edge computing use cases.
Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure is an open source software product that delivers compute, storage and network resources as an integrated platform. The platform uses Red Hat technologies, such as Enterprise Linux (RHEL), Red Hat Virtualization (RHV), Gluster Storage and Ansible by Red Hat.
Organizations can use the open source hyper-converged software to build their own HCI systems based on commodity hardware and avoid vendor lock-in and the high costs of proprietary equipment.
