NIO

"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 Read the case study

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

"Operational firefighting kills innovation because you are always focused on yesterday's problem instead of looking towards the future. The way to avoid constant firefighting is automation, which leads to more resilient, more secure, and more flexible applications. This is especially important for industries like cybersecurity and financial services where real-time data management is critical. Manual operations and real-time don't mix. With the new PX-Enterprise SDK, we have the ability to control every aspect of our cloud native storage via APIs to fully automate data management in real time." - Sunil Pentapati, Director of Platform Operations, Qomplx" Read the case study
 
 

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 How Lix solves Cassandra, Postgres and ELK ops for Kubernetes.
 
 

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 Architect’s Corner: Tom Watson, Devops Engineer at ReachForce
 
 

trustbills

"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.

"The real business value of Portworx is time. We can get to market faster with Portworx than we could if we implemented everything ourself". Read the case study
 
 

waycom

"Our clusters are highly dense, meaning we run a lot of containers per host. On AWS, we use huge instances. The recommendation from Kubernetes is 100 pods per VM. Already, we’re running 200-300 pods per host. Also, since most of the apps that we run are stateful, we can easily have 200-300 volumes per host as well. And we’re working to push these limits even further. Because of these densities enabled by Kubernetes and Portworx, we’re easily saving 60-90% on our compute costs. Portworx itself was between 30-50% cheaper than any other storage solution we tested." Read the case study
 
 

Vertiv

VoxMedia

"We initially tried to run stateful services like Jenkins and MySQL on Kubernetes using AWS EBS for persistent volume storage, but we quickly ran into issues with stuck volumes that led to application downtime. After months of struggling, we moved to Portworx, which allowed us to continue to use EBS for underlying storage, but without any of the negative issues we had experienced. Plus, now our stateful apps run across availability zones, which leads to better uptime." - Keaty Gross, Engineering Manager, Systems, Vox Media
