“There are a few critical areas in your stack where you cannot afford a failure. Storage is one such area. We evaluated open-source options for cloud-native storage, but they were not as stable for our high-performance use case. We chose Portworx because it is a stable, mature, container-native storage option with one of the most responsive engineering and support organizations I’ve ever worked with.” – Satya Komala, head of autonomous vehicle cloud and enterprise architecture, NIO

Beco

“We are rapidly scaling our containerized, micro-service based infrastructure and required a production-ready cloud native storage solution that would offer us the reliability and scalability we could count on. That’s why we chose Portworx. Portworx is a battle-proven, highly reliable storage solution that scales with our increasing demand and enables our development team to focus less on storage and more on building new software services.” – Jeffrey Zampieron, CTO, Beco.

Vertiv

“Portworx has been great to work with as we deploy Elasticsearch with Kubernetes in the cloud. Portworx features like CloudSnap make it easy to back up our container volumes to object storage, and the Portworx support team has been fantastic.” – Chris Hoffman, senior technologist, Vertiv

GE Digital

“Platforms like Predix represent the latest in cloud engineering – and operate in some of the largest distributed cloud configurations in the world. Portworx helps address our complex DevOps challenges by allowing us to enable data affinity solutions for containers rapidly, while improving data availability and scalability. Portworx provides infrastructure-agnostic features – such as volume persistence, high availability, data security and automation – that are valuable to a business like GE Digital.” – Darren Haas, head of cloud engineering, GE Digital

Lix

“You don’t want to mess around with the data layer for your containerized application. We picked Portworx because it saves us precious time managing our mission critical databases and let’s us focus on the areas were we differentiate. Portworx is exactly what we needed for our Kubernetes deployment, a stable, performant, cloud native storage solution with a great support team we can call if there is ever a problem.” – Simon Stender Boisen, CTO, Lix

Dreamworks Animation

“Portworx 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.” – Ali Zaidi, Director of Platform Services, DreamWorks Animation

reachforce

“Because Portworx aggregates all the storage on the container hosts and uses thin provisioning, we will be able to serve the same volumes and the same amount of data with half as much AWS storage. Just as importantly, though, it allows us to aggregate our storage tiers across each ECS cluster and only add more SSD or magnetic EBS storage as the data grows.” Tom Watts, DevOps Engineer at Reachforce

“We are huge fans of open-source software and before we found Portworx, we tested almost every free and open source product for running stateful containers and they couldn’t satisfy our high requirements in scalability, resilience and security.Even if all of them are based on great ideas, they didn’t suit our demands.
