According to a recent press release, “DriveScale, the leader in delivering Software Composable Infrastructure (SCI) for modern workloads, today announced support for Kubernetes and Docker, providing persistent storage for container environments. Enterprises today are relying on container technology and orchestration to help them achieve business results faster. The combination of DriveScale’s Software Composable Infrastructure solution and Kubernetes enables businesses faster time to market at a fraction of the cost of traditional approaches. SCI is the underlying innovation in the DriveScale System. This data center solution empowers IT to disaggregate compute and storage resources and quickly and easily recompose them to meet the needs of the business. DriveScale supports modern workloads such as Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, and now Docker and Kubernetes at a fraction of the cost of alternative platforms.”
The release goes on, “To address the demand for scalable, persistent storage for containers, DriveScale offers a FlexVolume plugin that gives IT administrators the ability to disaggregate storage from Docker and other containers in Kubernetes, delivering data locality, and IO scalability and performance for containerized applications. In addition, DriveScale allows users to reallocate storage for containers, maintaining persistence and giving IT operators the performance and cost points of locally attached storage. ‘If you are running stateful applications, you need stateful storage,’ said S.K. Vinod, VP of Product Management at DriveScale. ‘For DevOps teams running Kubernetes-based environments, DriveScale’s composability platform is the key to providing direct attached storage-like performance and persistence across containers’.”
