Scaling container platforms on bare metal with HPE Synergy
Portworx and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) have announced a solution based reference configuration that allows enterprises of all sizes to deploy, scale, and manage stateful container workloads. This new solution enables IT teams to deploy a scale out container platform on bare metal using a combination of HPE Synergy composable system, Kubernetes and Portworx’s cloud native storage platform.

As on-demand applications, such as Uber and Netflix, set the new standard for providing instantaneous responses to user needs, enterprises are moving to more efficient cloud-native and container-centric application architectures in order to meet increasing user demands for speed, reliability and performance. Moving applications to gives enterprises more agility and the ability to quickly deliver innovative services to their customers.

The HPE Synergy solution for Kubernetes and Portworx PX-Enterprise provides the following benefits:

  • Performance: container applications and back-end databases can either run on bare metal or on VMs on HPE Synergy SY 480 hardware ensuring blazing performance for containerized compute and storage.

  • App Services: Kubernetes provides load balancing, DNS and built-in services.

  • Rapid deployment: Synergy image streamer for seamless expansion and contraction of compute and storage resources to optimize resource needs of the container infrastructure.

  • Self-healing: containers get replaced and rescheduled based on server and app-level checks by Kubernetes.

  • Highly Available Data: Portworx creates container-granular volumes that are replicated and kept highly available, including across maintenance operations.

  • Container Data Lifecycle: container volumes can be automatically encrypted, snapshotted and backed-up to object storage by Portworx PX-Enterprise.
