Solving persistent storage problems for cloud native

Christian Hargrave Christian Hargrave in Cloud Services Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Kubernetes cloud native environments and applications now can use Virtuozzo Storage for Kubernetes for persistent storage.

Virtuozzo has announced the availability of Virtuozzo Storage for Kubernetes. The new solution solves persistent storage selection problems for cloud native environments and applications for Kubernetes (K8s) production deployments. A purely software-defined storage solution that runs on commodity hardware, Virtuozzo Storage for Kubernetes provides container-friendly storage with native integration and simplified deployment and management. Their latest application container storage solution for K8s adds to to its existing solution for Docker containers, which received Docker EE certification in June.

Both solutions will be featured demos in Booth S17 at this week’s DockerCon EU ’17 event, taking place in Copenhagen, where Virtuozzo is participating as a Silver Sponsor.

Key integrations

- Storage Provisioner: Provides dynamic volume provisioning based on pre-configured storage classes that contain all the requirements for a particular volume.
- Snapshot Controller: Implements the K8s 1.7 aggregation API and provides snapshotting functionality for K8s volumes.
- Storage FlexVolume Driver: Provides mount volumes on K8s nodes.

Features of Virtuozzo Storage for Kubernetes

  • Deep integration with the K8s Storage Management Model: Enables cluster connections through native K8s secrets and snapshots management via a native API aggregation.
  • Simple Configuration: Assign Storage Classes in 2 clicks with configuration options for Volumes available for storage classes.
  • Snapshot Support: Provides added data protection with easy scheduling and policy management.
  • Fault-Tolerant by Design: Flexible redundancy schemas for storage, as well as a highly available control plane ensure that infrastructure is still manageable after a node failure.
  • Easy Cluster Deployment and Scaling: Easily deploy and manage clusters using a set of simple actions.

“As application containers surge toward mainstream adoption, storage in production environments has proved challenging for users of the major containerization platforms, especially across dynamic multi-server deployments,” said George Karidis, chief executive officer at Virtuozzo. “With our latest Virtuozzo Storage for Kubernetes solution, we’re delivering a tightly integrated, production-ready solution for K8s that makes it very easy for any enterprise, small business or service provider to put containerized apps into production.”
