Tonian today announced their support for parallel NFS (pNFS) with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Red Hat’s release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 and Tonian’s release of pNFS modules provide customers access to the new standard in storage. Parallel NFS enables scale-out across multiple storage servers resulting in greater throughput, uptime and flexibility.

Tonian customers and partners can now use the leading Linux platform for their most demanding data intensive workloads. Currently in Beta testing, Tonian solutions support high-throughput workloads such as databases, media, and virtualization clusters. An extension to the broadly deployed NFS protocol, pNFS can be used in network attached environments where performance is required.

“The availability of support for pNFS in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is an industry changing event,” said Sharon Azulai, Tonian CEO. “It will be the platform for high-performance storage with the flexibility and longevity of the industry standard. Our customers want a fully tested, commercially supported storage option that independently scales-out performance and capacity – as well as a roadmap of support. Red Hat’s latest release delivers each of these benefits.”

“Tonian’s contributions to the Linux community and Red Hat testing advance the entire ecosystem,” said Mark Coggin, Senior Director, Product Marketing, Red Hat. “Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the leading commercial Linux enterprise platform because we work across the industry to provide our customers with innovative, standards based solutions that address their enterprise IT challenges.”
