Pure Storage Launches A Fully Managed Service Of Kubernetes-Focused Portworx Enterprise


Pure Storage has introduced a new fully managed service of Portworx Enterprise to bring a Kubernetes-ready data plane to every developer that works on containerized applications. With Portworx Enterprise 3.0, the underlying platform for this new fully managed service, DevOps teams can run mission-critical Kubernetes apps in production with elastic scalability and unmatched data availability.

Now the full suite of Portworx offerings can be consumed as a fully managed service by users of Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), RedHat OpenShift, and any other Kubernetes services (fully managed or upstream distributions).

According to the company, the fully managed service provides ease of use and faster deployment of Kubernetes data on any cloud or on-premises storage, enabling DevOps and platform teams to operate and scale containerized apps into production in seconds, versus weeks or months. The fully managed service will offer a no install, easy to use, and easy to manage experience to users with no container expertise required, making Day 0 and Day 2 operations for Kubernetes clusters simple with a few clicks.

The company adds that the new PX-Fast capability provides best-in-industry performance for low latency data services such as Kafka, Elastic, and MongoDB with fast ingestion needs, and high throughput for online transaction processing (OLTP), online analytical processing (OLAP), and machine learning (ML) workloads. The Kubernetes Data Management platform of Portworx uniquely provides throughput/IOPS extremely close to the equivalent of writing directly to the high-performing NVMe-based infrastructure, boosting the underlying performance to over one million IOPS.

The Near-Sync DR capability extends the existing Portworx Disaster Recovery capability by providing the lowest possible RPO between two cloud regions or geographically distant data centers, giving enterprises the desired level of business continuity.

The Object Storage Service capability provides another storage interface (in addition to file and block storage) to run containerized workloads. Using this feature, users can manage and access object storage buckets with native Kubernetes integration to get a single consistent experience across cloud and on-prem S3 stores.

In addition, Portworx is introducing a free tier of Portworx Backup, the Kubernetes backup and data protection service. Platform teams can now get started with the fully managed service of Portworx Backup with no feature restrictions, and protect up to 1TB of data at no cost. Each backup instance can manage hundreds of Kubernetes clusters.

The free, fully managed Portworx Backup can be used indefinitely by any organization looking for an enterprise-grade data protection service to protect their Kubernetes workloads with a few clicks.
