western-digital-logoFollowing Seagate, Western Digital will demonstrate Ethernet-connected drives at the OpenStack Summit, wich will take place between 12 and 16 May in Atlanta, GA.

This design has integrated CPU and memory resources running Linux, and can be integrates with existing data centre infrastructure without any change.

In contrast to Seagate’s Ethernet drives, Western Digital will run software such as OpenStack Object Storage (code-named Swift), Ceph and Red Hat Storage Server (Gluster) without modification.
