Zerowait announced today that they had signed a reseller agreement with Red Hat to offer both Red Hat Storage Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The agreement enables Zerowait to offer its customers turnkey storage solutions via a single point of contact support.
Rob Robinson, Vice President of Sales, said: "Our customers have been asking for a complete solution to their Big Data requirements. SimplStor provided the right hardware base, with the features and price point our customers needed. Now we can offer Red Hat Storage Server, a multi-node, highly resilient open software-defined storage platform, allowing IT managers to determine how much protection each file requires. Data Bricks are built on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the XFS file system, offering RAID 6 dual parity redundancy. From there clients can elect to replicate the data, either locally or remotely for even more protection of critical data. Single Namespace allows all users to access all data without the mounting issues typically encountered, and allows additional nodes to be added as required to build out though multiple petabytes."
Mike Linett, President of Zerowait, added: "Our customers know we are a service company first. They told us they needed Enterprise Support for SimplStor, and we responded with SimplSupport, our resident diagnostic and reporting tool. Now our engineers can provide software support as well. From network issues through storage configuration and hardware failures, our engineers can provide complete coverage for SimplStor Archive users. Truly a tier one experience, but at archive prices. Every SimplStor system includes the first year of SimplSupport, with ongoing coverage available in multi-year packages with additional discounts."
Added Scott Clinton, senior director, Product Management and Marketing for Storage, Red Hat: "Red Hat Storage is exceptionally well-suited for both Big Data and hybrid cloud environments, as it provides the capacity to handle the explosive growth of unstructured data. We are pleased to work with Zerowait to bring open, software-defined storage to enterprise customers to meet the demand for highly scalable, agile storage solutions."
Headquartered in Wilmington, Del., USA, and with offices around the world, Zerowait is the worldwide leader in independent service and support of NetApp filers. Zerowait solutions include off-lease fully licensed NetApp systems and the new Zerowait SimplStor line of single-name space archive storage.
