Built for complex Kubernetes deployments requiring production-grade storage
London UK, May 5, 2020 – StorageOS has released V2.0 of its leading cloud native, software-defined, persistent storage for Kubernetes into general availability. Delivering reduced time to recovery, scale, security and performance. StorageOS V2.0 has been designed for organisations that want to run hyper-converged and/or multiple cluster Kubernetes environments with the underlying storage to support cloud native workflows and stateful applications.
StorageOS platform provides the availability, management, performance and security for users to run stateful workloads at scale – whether in the cloud, on-premises or a hybrid. By delivering persistent storage to applications in Kubernetes environments, it helps users achieve all the business benefits of containers and orchestrators. Kubernetes users running deployments with multiple clusters are increasingly turning to StorageOS for their storage requirements. As Kubernetes clusters grow in size V2.0 also scales supporting the production of stateful applications.
“All reports point to the fact that enterprises are making the move to containers, but that storage is still viewed as a key challenge impacting adoption and operations,” commented Scott D. Lowe, ActualTech Media. “Users want to run hyperconverged applications and/or multi-cluster Kubernetes environments with the underlying storage to support cloud native workflows and stateful applications. StorageOS’ V2.0 has all the enhancements needed to meet these trends in the rapidly-evolving Kubernetes market. Essentially, StorageOS eliminates the problem with storage for stateful Kubernetes applications.”
StorageOS V2.0 improves resiliency in large clustered environments that experience more transient failures. Its scalable architecture is designed to cope with unpredictable failure scenarios whereas traditional storage solutions cannot handle the complexity of clustered deployments at scale.
V2.0 is designed from the ground up to enable security at every layer of the stack, improving security with encryption in transit. Traffic between nodes is encrypted and authenticated.
StorageOS integrates with Kubernetes CSI and allows storage to be declarative so users can deploy and provision storage resources and services alongside CPU, networking and other application resources.
“Kubernetes users working with increasingly complex deployments require storage that delivers predictability for replication and failover,” commented Alex Chircop, Founder and CEO at StorageOS. “Users are also deploying more mature Kubernetes environments resulting in a need for production-grade storage. StorageOS V2.0 is ideally suited to these requirements and we are already seeing significant demand across a range of organisations and markets.”
