All the major cloud providers offer managed Kubernetes services, but their storage offerings do not provide the enterprise features required to run production stateful applications. As a result, enterprises are using container-based apps as scalable front ends, but still leveraging traditional database solutions or managed DB services that are not portable or scalable.
Public cloud storage does not offer the performance, reliability, durability, or compliance required in an enterprise organization. To support enterprise adoption of containers, storage must evolve.
StorageOS delivers a cloud native storage solution delivering persistent container storage. Software-defined, StorageOS is a scaleout/up storage platform for running your enterprise containerized apps in production. StorageOS is conceptually pretty simple; it’s a virtualization layer on top of any commodity or cloud storage. StorageOS also allows you to aggregate the ephemeral disk in your cloud nodes to deliver enterprise storage to your containerized apps.
