SUSE

Highly scalable and resilient storage designed to scale from terabytes to petabytes

For most enterprise-level businesses, the demand for data storage is growing much faster than the average price for storage is shrinking. That means you'll be forced to increase your budget dramatically to keep up with your data demands. However, there is another answer—SUSE Enterprise Storage. This intelligent software-defined storage solution, powered by Ceph, enables you to transform your enterprise storage infrastructure to reduce costs while providing unlimited scalability.

SUSE Enterprise Storage delivers storage functionality comparable to mid and high-end storage products at a fraction of the cost. It is a self-healing, self-managing storage solution that scales from a terabyte to a multi-petabyte storage network. Coupling SUSE Enterprise Storage with commodity off-the-shelf storage building blocks results in industry-leading, cost-efficient storage. iSCSI support allows Linux, UNIX and Windows server to access block storage from the SUSE Enterprise Storage Cluster. Tight integration with SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server enables IT organizations to easily provision additional storage and seamlessly deliver it to lines of business on demand. Truly unlimited scalability enables enterprise IT organizations to deliver the agility businesses demand by adding capacity, without disruption, at the cost they want to pay. Intelligent, self-healing, self-managing distributed storage enables storage administrators to minimize the amount of time spent managing storage. This enables organizations to support more capacity per storage administrator or spend more time focused on delivering future innovations to the business.
