Automation is the lifeblood of DevOps. Tools like Kubernetes, Mesos, and Swarm automate container clusters. Terraform and Ansible automate infrastructure. And Portworx automates the deployment and operations of data services at scale.
With Portworx, you can manage any database or stateful service on any infrastructure using any container scheduler. You get a single data management layer for all of your stateful services, no matter where they run.
format_quotePortworx has enabled Dreamworks to successfully run high-performance, mission-critical stateful services like Cassandra, Postgres, and Kafka in containers, a key part of modernizing our studio’s application platform. Before deploying Portworx, we struggled to find a data services layer that allowed us to take advantage of Kubernetes automation without using a centralized storage solution like a SAN or Ceph, an anti-pattern for most of our databases. Portworx’s distributed block storage solution lets us run our databases on direct-attached storage and still get the benefits of scheduler-based automation for our app. In addition to having a great product, the team has been very responsive and easy to work with.format_quoteAli ZaidiDirector of Platform Services, DreamWorks Animation
