IBM is leading the industry in disk-dense, big data servers. Red Hat is leading the industry with emerging software-defined solutions. Red Hat Storage Server on the IBM System x3650 M4 BD platform delivers a solution designed for big data, high performance, a small footprint, and horizontal scalability.
In this session, we’ll discuss how Red Hat Storage Server powers this x86 system configurable with up to 56 terabytes of low-cost storage, transforming it from a box of disk drives into an affordable, powerful, scalable, and open, software-defined storage environment. We’ll also detail a case study from a customer running virtualized servers and virtualized storage on IBM x86 servers, all powered by Red Hat software.
