Red Hat Storage Test Drives labs on AWS have been developed by Red Hat for educational and demonstration purposes. Each test drive lab will include up to 5 hours of AWS server time. Within minutes enterprise customers will be able to create and experience a secure multi-terabyte storage solution that can be accessed using different POSIX compatible protocols like NFS, SMB, and GlusterFS clients. Pre-configured use cases in the Test Drives include:

  • High availability and business continuity to provide high levels of data security with built-in replication and self-healing capabilities;
  • Secure enterprise file sharing and collaboration to reliably store and retrieve files from a variety of devices by creating your own enterprise drop box;
  • Large file and object storage to take advantage of cloud network-attached storage (NAS) to cost-effectively manage unstructured data at-scale; and
  • Media content delivery and storage to quickly serve and scale multimedia content to mass audiences.
