Robin.io has announced new platform capabilities that help customers adopt hybrid and multi-cloud strategies.
The Robin Cloud-Native Platform now enables customers to easily move complex stateful applications across clouds to unlock cost efficiencies and avoid infrastructure lock-in, the company said.
Enterprises are increasingly looking at hybrid and multi-cloud strategies to support their growing infrastructure needs. Adopting a hybrid or multi-cloud strategy entails moving workloads between clouds to achieve better cost economics.
However, each cloud has its own method of automation, deployment, and monitoring, making it challenging to move workloads, often resulting in costly migration projects. Kubernetes has enabled multi-cloud portability for certain stateless applications. However, moving stateful applications from one cloud to another remains a challenge.
“Multi-cloud and hybrid cloud adoption has been challenging for enterprises that rely on complex, stateful applications,” said Partha Seetala, founder and CEO of Robin.io. “No one has effectively solved this problem until now. This new capability in the Robin Platform makes it possible to move stateful applications across clouds to support SLAs, latency, cost and other critical business objectives.”
The new capability is now generally available in the Robin Platform.
It extends Kubernetes to provide a simple three-step solution to move complex and multi-tier stateful applications from one cloud to another.
