Red Hat Updates OpenShift Container Storage 4 with Multi-Cloud and Security; Ranga Rangachari Quoted

Red Hat has developed its latest software updates for its OpenShift Container Storage 4 software to add a multiple-cloud gateway and new security features, the company announced on Wednesday. The updates will boost abstraction and flexibility to support both traditional and emerging workloads enabled through its Red Hat Ceph Storage with multi-cloud gateway technology.

The rights to the cloud technology were gained in a Nov. 2018 acquisition of NooBaa. With the multi-cloud on OpenShift Container Storage 4, customers have the freedom to choose data services across multiple public clouds.

They can also share and access sensitive data in a more secure fashion across multiple-locations and platforms. The use of multi-cloud strategies also reduces the vulnerability to a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack as the attack won’t affect all the clouds.

“The addition of NooBaa’s technology and talent pool adds a competitive edge to Red Hat’s offerings tailored to address the needs of developers building tomorrow’s cloud-native applications,” commented Ranga Rangachari, vice president and general manager of Storage at Red Hat.

Additional features included in the update are encryption, data anonymization, key separation and erasure coding to further drive security across disparate cloud environments.
