Portworx by Pure Storage at AWS re: Invent 2021

According to CNCF, over 65% of customers are using Amazon EKS to run their container workloads. Here at Portworx by Pure Storage, we work closely with AWS to provide a consistent storage and data management platform that makes it easy to deploy data-rich Kubernetes applications in production. With Portworx and AWS, customers can solve key business requirements that Kubernetes doesn’t address including: Cloud Migration, Cross-AZ HA, Backup and DR, security and compliance management.

Overview of Portworx and AWS


Portworx is all about simplifying your Kubernetes data and we have a good momentum of product releases at AWS re:Invent 2021 in Las Vegas. Some of the key enhancements to our product and partnership with AWS can be found below, which can help Kubernetes users solve challenges associated with data management and data replication.
