Traditional RAID 5 is evolving into Software Defined Storage solutions, running on commodity X86 based hardware platforms, in conjunction with ZFS, Object Storage w/ the appropriate gateways, Hyper Converged solutions and distributed or clustered file systems that can connect to your cloud resources.
Partaking of OpenStack, IoT, end to end disk & tape tiered storage solutions, GPU based VDI, Spark, hybrid enterprises, etc.. is best done with partners that are authorized, trained and already involved with these types of technologies. Running on a production level file system is usually the 2nd / best step.
We support our customers when they are required to bring technologies like these into the production arena. Our engineers have reference architecture documentation for technologies like Kinetic, Ceph, OpenStack, Hadoop – Spark, etc.. and are members of the applicable user group communities.
