By Chrissie Cluney February 25, 2020

According to a recent announcement, Red Hat, a provider of open source solutions, has released the Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage 4. This product reportedly is designed to deliver an integrated, multi-cloud experience to Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform users.

“Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage holds considerable promise as the default storage option for OpenShift customers,” said Eric Sheppard, Research VP, IDC.

The company said that OpenShift Container Storage 4 builds on more than three years of rapid adoption by customers worldwide looking for a consistent storage experience for a wide variety of data-centric applications across the open hybrid cloud.

“When you work in a complex business environment, a key priority is to increase resilience and improve reliability at every layer of the technology stack,” said Francesco Giannoccaro, head, HPC and Infrastructure, Public Health, England. “The advantage of using OpenShift Container Storage is the ability to have an integrated environment with persistent storage and shared volumes across multiple pods and containers, without going through complex configurations. The level of resilience and reliability is very high compared to alternative scalable storage solutions, and we're confident that the portability and simplicity built into OpenShift Container Storage can provide the breadth of data services to developers in a true hybrid cloud experience, to enable robust development cycles and greater productivity.”

This product’s release empowers a first-class developer experience across footprints where the company’s platform is available. This product is for developers who are building cloud-native applications or lifting and shifting legacy applications.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage 4 is designed to assist the acceleration of application development workflows through optimization with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. This enables developers to dynamically provision their own storage from within the platform without requiring storage expertise.

“As the container storage market continues to evolve rapidly, Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage 4, brings to bear solutions for the biggest challenges facing customers today. The integration with Operator advances us towards the industry vision of fully self-managed, self-healing storage services delivered through Kubernetes,” said Ranga Rangachari, VP and GM, Storage, Red Hat.
