New York, NY – January 23, 2018 – StorageOS, a software startup providing cloud native storage for containers and cloud, today announced it has successfully completed testing with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, achieving Red Hat Container Certification. StorageOS is now available through the Red Hat Container Catalog, enabling the company to deliver its persistent storage solution to Red Hat OpenShift users.
This certification expands StorageOS’ relationship with Red Hat to deliver a platform agnostic persistent storage for containers solution for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. The StorageOS Node container turns an OpenShift node into a hyper-converged storage platform. It is designed to reduce the time to market for applications in production. StorageOS is well-suited for deploying databases, message busses, and other mission-critical stateful solutions, where rapid recovery and fault tolerance are needed across on-premises, cloud or multi-cloud environments running Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
StorageOS is designed to address new considerations for containers, providing storage at the application level, unlike other vendors that focus on the infrastructure. StorageOS provides persistent storage for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform that can deliver the agility and performance modern DevOps teams need. StorageOS provides automated, easier to use, API-driven enterprise storage features like high availability and dynamic volume provisioning for persistent workloads in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
“Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is an enterprise Kubernetes platform designed to bridge the needs of developers and IT operations teams and provide a consistent application and service experience across hybrid cloud infrastructures,” said Chris Morgan, Cloud Platforms Technical Marketing at Red Hat. “With its certification complete and as part of the Red Hat Container Catalog, StorageOS customers can now have more confidence knowing that the container is supported by Red Hat and partners like StorageOS.”
“With our Red Hat certification, enterprise OpenShift users can now have confidence that StorageOS is a solution that is ready to use in their environments to help deliver database, message bus, and instrumentation persistent storage use cases,” commented Chris Brandon, CEO at StorageOS. “The Red Hat Container Catalog is a relied upon source for Red Hat OpenShift customers and after testing, the StorageOS solution has demonstrated its ability to deliver persistent storage workloads for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.”
