Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage
Dynamic, shared, and highly available storage for OpenShift applications
Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage is software-defined storage integrated with and optimized for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. OpenShift Container Storage is built on Red Hat Ceph® Storage, Rook, and NooBaa to provide container native storage services that support block, file, and object services.
It will deploy anywhere OpenShift does: on-premise or in the public cloud. Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage supports a variety of traditional and cloud-native workloads including:
Block storage for databases and messaging.
Shared file storage for continuous integration and data aggregation.
Object storage for archival, backup, and media storage.
Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Storage is persistent software-defined storage integrated with and optimized for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. It runs anywhere Red Hat OpenShift does: on-premise or in the public cloud. Built on Red Hat Ceph® Storage, the Rook operator for Kubernetes storage orchestration, and NooBaa multicloud object gateway technology, the platform offers tightly integrated, persistent data services for OpenShift and the hybrid multicloud. Dynamic, stateful, and highly available container-native storage can be provisioned and deprovisioned on demand as an integral part of the OpenShift administrator console.
Features and benefits
Fully integrates with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform for Day 1 and Day 2 installation and management. A single unified platform supports:
• Block storage for databases and messaging.
• Shared file storage for continuous integration and data aggregation.
• Object storage for data lakes, archival, backup, and media storage.Storage nodes are full members of the OpenShift cluster.
Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage nodes are managed through the OpenShift administrator console via the Rook Kubernetes storage orchestrator.
Supports traditional and emerging OpenShift workloads, allowing easy data-sharing across geographic locations and platforms, and scales to orders of magnitude more persistent volumes (PVs) per OpenShift Container Storage cluster than previous releases.
Offers easy cross-cloud data placement and access, along with hybrid and multicloud data protection for enterprise applications. Consistent OpenShift management tools work across environments, whether on-premise or in the public cloud. The multicloud object gateway provides data federation across multiple private and public clouds.
