With Portworx, you can manage any stateful service on any infrastructure using Openshift. You get a single data management layer for all of your stateful services, no matter where they run. Portworx customers include GE, Dreamworks, Verizon, & more.
Features and Benefits
Persistent Storage for Databases
Unlike file-based storage systems commonly used with OpenShift such as GlusterFS and Ceph, Portworx is designed for high-performance database workloads such as Cassandra, HDFS, Kafka, Postgres, ElasticSearch and more.
Recover Faster from Failure
Modern databases that provide their own replication can automatically recover from failure. But bootstrapping a new node is time-consuming and reduces overall cluster performance during the rebuild. With Portworx, you can automatically reschedule your pods to an up-to-date replica, eliminating the bootstrap process entirely.
Backup and Recovery
In addition to providing persistent storage and faster recovery for high-performance databases, Portworx provides backup and recovery tools that fit into modern DevOps-based workflows. Snapshot container volumes and push them to any S3-compatible object store, then pull these volumes down into any other environment. No need to rehydrate your volumes. They can be immediately mounted to pods.
Managing data comes with special requirements, from specific regulatory issues to simply maintaining customer trust. Portworx lets you move at DevOps speed while maintaining your apps’ security requirements by offering container-granular encryption.
Automation is the lifeblood of DevOps. Tools like Kubernetes, Mesos and Swarm automate container clusters. Terraform and Ansible automate infrastructure. And Portworx automates the deployment and operations of data services at scale.
With Portworx, you can manage any database or stateful service on any infrastructure using OpenShift or pure Kubernetes. You get a single data management layer for all of your stateful services, no matter where they run. Unlike file-based storage system commonly used with OpenShift such as GlusterFS and Ceph, Portworx is designed for high-performance workloads like Cassandra, HDFS, Kafka, Postgres, Elasticsearch and more.
Portworx scales up to 1000 nodes per cluster and is used in production by some of the world's most sophisticated IT organizations including GE, Dreamworks, Lufthansa Systems and more.
