Achieve enterprise-grade storage & data management for Kubernetes on AWS - Portworx

Achieve enterprise-grade storage & data management for Kubernetes on AWS

The Portworx Kubernetes Storage Platform makes it easy to run mission-critical applications on AWS that are fast, available, and secure.
Improve application reliability with Kubernetes-granular storage, data availability, data security, backup, and DR while slashing your EBS storage costs in half

Cross-AZ HA

When you run Portworx on top of EBS, your Kubernetes volumes are automatically replicated across AZs, providing HA and faster failover for Kubernetes applications.

Cross-region Migrations

Portworx PX-Migrate lets you migrate entire Kubernetes applications, including data & app configuration, easily between any AWS Region or AWS Outpost.

Backup & DR

Portworx PX-Backup provides point-and-click backup and restore of Kubernetes applications across regions while PX-DR provides zero RPO disaster recovery.

Optimize Infrastructure

Portworx PX-Autopilot enables you to optimize your EBS usage by intelligently provisioning storage on demand.
“At Audi Business Innovation, we’ve explored different strategies for managing cloud costs, and the integration of Portworx as our Kubernetes storage platform has been successful in achieving this goal. Portworx provides an enterprise-class alternative to the network-attached storage commonly available on the cloud but at one third the price and substantially higher performance. Additionally, using the recently introduced PX-Autopilot to automatically provision storage only when it is needed, we are driving our cost savings even further.”

Florian Buchmeier, DevOps Engineer, Audi Business Innovation, a 100% subsidiary of Audi AG.

Portworx Enterprise is a software-defined container storage platform that runs on top of Amazon EBS to provide Kubernetes applications with scale-out storage, cross-AZ data availability, data security, backup, and disaster recovery in any Amazon region or Outpost.”

PX-Central is your centralized monitoring, metrics and data management interface for Portworx Enterprise.

PX-Central includes:

  • Multi-cluster management UI
  • Proactive centralized monitoring
  • Cluster setup/installation
  • And more…

Container Data Security Without Compromise

With PX-Secure encryption and access controls, you can move securely at the speed of Kubernetes.

PX-Secure includes:

  • Cluster-wide encryption
  • Container-granular or Storage-class based BYOK
  • Role-based access control for
    – Authorization
    – Authentication
    – Ownership
  • Integrates with Active Directory and LDAP

Data Management, Kubernetes style

Complete control over your Kubernetes data no matter where it lives.

PX-Migrate includes:

  • Multi-cloud/multi-cluster application migrations
  • Snapshot-based backup to any cloud
  • Application-consistent snapshots

Data Protection For Mission Critical Apps

PX-DR extends the data protection included in PX-Store with Zero RPO Disaster Recovery for data centers in a metropolitan area as well as continuous backups across the WAN for an even greater level of protection.

PX-DR includes:

  • Multi-site synchronous replication for Zero RPO DR across a metro area
  • Multi-site Asynchronous Replication for DR across a wide area network (WAN)
  • All DR policies can be set at the container-granular level

Scalable Persistent Storage for Kubernetes

Built from the ground up for containers, PX-Store provides cloud native storage for applications running in the cloud, on-prem and in hybrid/multi-cloud environments.

PX-Store includes:

  • Container-optimized volumes with elastic scaling for no application downtime
  • High Availability across nodes/racks/AZs so you can failover in seconds
  • Multi-writer shared volumes across multiple containers
  • Storage-aware class-of-service (COS) and application aware I/O tuning
  • And much more…

PX-Autopilot for Capacity Management

Stop overprovisioning cloud storage. PX-Autopilot for Capacity Management allows you to stop over-provisioning storage capacity in the cloud so you can cut your cloud storage bill in half.

PX-Autopilot includes:

  • Automatically resize individual container volumes or your entire storage cluster
  • Optimize your applications’ performance with a fully customizable rules-based engine
  • Integrates with Amazon EBS, Google PD, Azure Block Storage, and VMware vSphere

What backup for Kubernetes should be

PX-Backup allows you to capture entire applications, including data, application configuration and Kubernetes objects, and move them to any backup location at the click of a button. Recover entire applications just as easily.

PX-Backup includes:

  • Continuous backups across global data centers
  • Point-and-click recovery for any Kubernetes app
  • Backup and recover cloud volumes from Amazon, Microsoft and Google
  • Fulfill your compliance and governance responsibilities with a single pane of glass for all your containerized applications
