The inclusion of the Zadara Red Hat AMIs in the AWS Marketplace makes Enterprise-class, Storage-as-a-Service a viable and attractive solution for Network Attached Storage (NAS) users and database users requiring shared storage. This advancement provides Native Red Hat Cluster Services with MySQL, and easy, preconfigured access to Enterprise-class NAS on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The Zadara Red Hat AMIs provide users the benefits of a pure cloud storage solution, plus the ease of implementation that comes with preconfigured images.
The Zadara AMIs, are available on-demand through AWS Marketplace, and can be seamlessly deployed within the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) environment. Customers can take advantage of the standard Red Hat images with the necessary standard packages and automation scripts for connecting to Zadara Virtual Private Storage Arrays (VPSAs). The Zadara RHEL AMIs published includes NAS and Clustering: RHEL 6 ready for Zadara VPSA Cloud Block/File Storage, and RHEL 6 Cluster with MySQL. These Zadara Storage RHEL AMIs go beyond block-only storage and create a robust Enterprise storage solution delivering high availability, encryption, clustering, selectable RAID protection, full performance monitoring and tuning, pay-as-you-go, metering by the hour, performance isolation, and reliable performance.
"We are excited to have Zadara Storage offerings on AWS Marketplace, adding to our growing ecosystem of Red Hat Enterprise Linux partners," said Sajai Krishnan, General Manager, AWS Marketplace. "Zadara products used with AWS’s highly scalable, secure and flexible platform provide AWS customers with NAS data storage functionality for their unstructured data needs, and clustering capabilities for their high-availability MySQL database storage needs."
