Red Hat Grabs Gluster in Big Data Play

Red Hat has agreed to buy Gluster for $136 million, adding new storage, data center and cloud services utilities to Red Hat’s toolbox. “I see this more as a general ‘big data’ play more than a cloud strategy. Gluster is aimed at organizing unstructured data — data that’s growing incredibly fast and data that companies need to manage, track and analyze,” said Gabriel Consulting Group’s Dan Olds.
