Red Hat and DriveScale: Composable Infrastructure for OpenShift

Companies are creating more data than ever before and putting that data to work to drive their business. In order to put that data to work, infrastructure needs to be more flexible in order to handle the dynamic nature of the data, addressing over-provisioning and operational complexity. To be successful, companies need to look for ways to simplify IT operations and accelerate application and service delivery.

Composable infrastructure provides the ability to create adaptable logical servers from physical compute, storage, and network fabric. These resources are logically pooled so that IT administrators don’t have to physically configure hardware to support a specific software application. With the DriveScale Composable Platform, users can create Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® servers and clusters for easy application deployment with Red Hat OpenShift® Container Platform applications. They can add compute or storage resources as applications require, redeploy those resources when the workload completes, and instantly replace failed components to avoid downtime.

Western Digital and DriveScale: Elastic Bare-Metal Clouds with Composable NVMe-oF

Companies are creating more data than ever before and putting that data to work to drive their business. The dynamic nature of data-intensive applications with today’s fixed, static resources in servers with local drives creates costly overprovisioning and operational complexity. To be successful, companies need to look for ways to simplify IT operations and accelerate application and service delivery.

For applications staying on premises, companies are looking to build cloud-like infrastructure with the same level of adaptability, application mobility and cost-efficiency. And they need to seamlessly add NVMe™ over fabrics, accelerators and the latest processors. The DriveScale Composable Platform enables this elastic, adaptable infrastructure by orchestrating the instances of compute and instances of storage that are needed for each workload. As an end-to-end, automated solution, users simply identify the resources needed and the clusters are created automatically – just like in the cloud. 

Together, the DriveScale Composable Platform and the Western Digital® OpenFlex™ NVMe storage system uniquely deliver a high scale, high performance, flexible solution.

Seagate and DriveScale: Elastic Bare-Metal Clouds with Exos

Companies are creating more data than ever before and putting that data to work to drive their business. The dynamic nature of data-intensive applications with today’s fixed, static resources in servers with local drives creates costly overprovisioning and operational complexity. To seamlessly manage scale and control costs, composable infrastructure enables simplified, efficient IT operation and accelerated application and service delivery.

For applications such as machine learning and NoSQL databases commonly deployed on premises, bare-metal cloud infrastructure is required with the same level of adaptability and elasticity as the public cloud with better cost-efficiency. Additionally, IT needs a simple and seamless way to add the latest storage technology, accelerators and new processors. The DriveScale Composable Platform enables this flexibility with elastic, adaptable infrastructure by orchestrating the instances of compute and instances of storage that are needed for each workload. As an end-to-end, automated solution, IT admins simply identify the resources needed and the clusters are created automatically – just like in the cloud.

Together, the DriveScale Composable Platform and the Seagate® Exos™ AP 5U84 storage application platform uniquely deliver a high scale, high performance, flexible solution.
