Germany-based open source company SUSE has released version 6 of its Enterprise Storage product which, it claims, has "new features focused on containerised and cloud workload support, improved integration with public cloud, and enhanced data protection capabilities".

A statement from SUSE said the new version was based on the Ceph Nautilus release and further removed storage silos, giving customers easier access to different types of data and enabling them to extract information from data using search and analytics tools.

It also maximises application availability with faster and more granular back-ups that can use low-cost public cloud resources for improved data protection.

The product was first introduced in 2014 and initial deployments were focused on storing unstructured data.

SUSE claimed version 6 would also help customers to reduce operational IT expenses by optimising data placement and allowing movement of data between all tiers of storage based on policy, ensuring access to critical data when needed.

It also improved IT efficiency with a single, scalable storage solution that met all storage requirements for containerised and cloud-enabled workloads.

“SUSE is powering digital transformation with agile open source solutions like SUSE Enterprise Storage that enable enterprises to continually innovate, compete and grow,” said Brent Schroeder, chifef technology officer Americas for SUSE.

“We work with the community to develop innovative open source technology that we then test and harden to ensure it is enterprise ready.

"We aim to transform enterprise storage infrastructure with a truly open and unified, intelligent software-defined storage solution that reduces costs and alleviates proprietary hardware lock-in for customers. SUSE Enterprise Storage 6 reflects SUSE’s ongoing commitment to making Ceph ‘enterprise consumable'.”

Version 6 will be available in June.
