Red Hat Gluster Storage software is designed to dominate at high capacity tasks and excel in high performance situations such as virtualisation or analytics. It's both adaptable and cost effective as it can scale efficiently across cloud, virtual and container deployments. With a strong focus on usability and user experience, Red Hat's Gluster storage software is very simple to use.
At the core of this software is a hugely scalable, open source distributed file system (DFS). This DFS allows different organisations to combine many storage and compute resources into one centrally managed storage pool that is virtualised and high performance. Red Hat Gluster Storage uses block storage, which stores data in chunks on connected computers.
There are a number of features that make Red Hat Gluster Storage one of the very best server storage software solutions on the market.
Arbiter volumes lessen the overall footprint of the hardware without causing a decrease in the level of data integrity. Deployment is really simple, with enterprises being able to deploy on commodity hardware within minutes. In only a few mouse clicks, extra storage can be deployed by users. It features integrated NFSv4 support as well as bit rot detection.
Red Hat Gluster OS uses automatic storage tiering to improve the performance of files that are frequently accessed. With Red Hat Gluster Storage you will experience a reduction in cost of distributed, highly available storage. Data integrity is preserved, leading to a lower risk of any breaches or non-compliance. There is much quicker back-end storage for live VMs.
An advantage of using Red Hat's storage server software is the hands-off aspect of the management. With an elastic hashing algorithm, the software can store data without needing a metadata server. This ensures that there isn't a single point of failure.
This software is very adaptable, in that it scales with you as you grow. Business changes won't mean you have to create a new storage environment for each project. The software allows you to start on a smaller scale and grow to support larger needs as your business evolves. For organisations that require huge amounts of storage, they can simple deploy large scale out storage very cost efficiently.
This solution has been designed from scratch for unlimited scalability. You can easily add and remove storage. The elastic architecture allows users to seamlessly extend storage to meet their dynamic requirements.
Red Hat Gluster Storage has strong security that utilises erasure coding to keep your data safe. Erasure Coding works by breaking down data into tiny parts which are then expanded and encoded with a bunch of irrelevant and redundant data. After this the parts are stored across many different locations, making it very unlikely and difficult for anyone to steal your data.
It also features advanced data protection, which reduces the possibility of any data breaches through its preservation of data asset integrity.
Red Hat designs its storage servers to be compatible with the latest technology, such as NVMe drives.
Based on GlusterFS (an open source project), this software is reliable and well suited for both semi-structured and unstructured storage requirements. In addition to this it is also very well suited for big data storage.
Many brands employ vendor locking on their products, meaning the only products compatible with the software will be products from either the company itself or its associates. Red Hat do not vendor lock and are proud to allow their customers to keep their options open.
For 3 decades we have built up a reputation of providing enterprise-grade server and storage solutions with reliability and consistency. We have maintained a very high standard of excellence that has allowed us to work with some of the worlds largest brands such as the BBC, NASA, SONY, TESCO, SKY and many more. Having received a wide array of awards over the year for our high quality of work and service, we have established ourselves as one of the very best server technology providers in the industry.
The storage servers we provide are completely compatible with all server software. We are the only company that provides servers that have universal compatibility, meaning you are never stuck having to have another huge outlay for hardware should you want to change your software to something new.
We do not include any hidden charges and our prices are fair and consistent. Unlike many of the big names in this industry, we do not hike up fees and over charge our customers for things like future storage upgrades - with Broadberry you get the highest quality products and services at the best prices.
Overwhelmed by growing data stores? Easily manage all your big, unstructured, and semistructured data in physical, virtual, and cloud environments with our limitless storage.
The Broadberry CyberStore range of enterprise-grade storage servers are designed and built for a wide-range of storage applications.
Completely customisable from processing to storage type and capacity, to operating system - the CyberStore range is your go-to storage platform.
The CyberStore range of storage servers are used by the world's largest organisations from the BBC, to the CERN project, governement institutions, universities and much more.
Year-after-year, the Broadberry CyberStore range of unified storage appliances has beaten the likes of Dell and HPE to be crowned "Best Storage Appliance" by PC Pro magazine.
When compared to the likes of DELL, HPE, EMC etc, the Broadberry CyberStore range of enterprise-grade unified storage appliances is up to 60% cheaper, although using the same quality components such as Seagate drives and Kingston RAM.
The Bradberry CyberStore range has been built from industry-leading commodity hardware, and carefully designed to ensuure full compatibility with leading storage operating systems and database engines.
Broadberry enterprise storage appliances are on average 86% lower cost than EMC and 55% lower cost than DELL although built using the same leading-brand server components such as Intel processors and Samsung memory. HPE hard drives are rebadged Toshiba enterprise-class drives, the exact same models as found in Broadberry storage appliances.
When you buy a Broadberry storage appliance all drive bays are supplied with caddies - so if in 6 months time you decide to expand the storage you can source it freely from the marketplace or ourselves if you wish. The only way to add hard drives to HPE servers is to buy the drives along with caddies from HPE for 200% the price of Broadberry's price.
Broadberry storage appliances come with enterprise-grade features like IPMI included, whereas HPE charge large fees for perpetual licences for the same features.
Our website allows you to configure your server online with accurate prices, as opposed to NetApp who require several face-to-face meetings with them before they'll give you a price.
Over recent years there's been a massive move from the world's largest organisations such as Google to purchase their servers from the likes of Broadberry rather than DELL and HPE. This move is fuelled by the rise in commodity hardware.
Before leaving our UK workshop, all Broadberry server and storage solutions undergo a rigorous 48 hour testing procedure. This, along with the high-quality industry leading components we use ensure all of our server and storage solutions meet the strictest quality guidelines demanded from us.
Our main objective is to offer great value, high-quality server and storage solutions, we understand that every company has different requirements and as such are able to offer un-equaled flexibility in designing custom server and storage solutions to meet our clients' needs.
We have established ourselves as one of the biggest storage providers in the UK, and since 1989 supplied our server and storage solutions to the world's biggest brands. Our customers include:
