“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, NIORead the case study
“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 DigitalHow GE Digital Tackled the Stateful / Stateless Problem for Industrial IoT
“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
“With Portworx, our containers have fewer moving parts, fewer commands to understand, and fewer things to break.”Case Study: For Lufthansa Systems, Customizing In-Flight Connectivity and Entertainment Systems for Its Award-winning BoardConnect Solution Dependson Stateful Containers
“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.Architect’s Corner: Jeffrey Zampieron, CTO at Beco Inc.
“Portworx really comes in and saves the day because we have a storage fabric that integrates with container workflows, but still provides persistence like we’d expect in a VM environment.” – Danny Purcell, DevOps Engineer, New ContextArchitect’s Corner: Danny Purcell, Senior DevOps Engineer at New Context
“Portworx engineers were outstanding in helping us get up and running; we did our first deployment in a matter of hours.”Architect’s Corner: Nelson Kick, HPC Engineer at TGen
“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, LixHow Lix solves Cassandra, Postgres and ELK ops for Kubernetes.
“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 ReachforceArchitect’s Corner: Tom Watson, 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.Architect’s Corner: How TrustBills built a secure, compliant Kubernetes platform for the German market
“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
“Kubernetes with Portworx is probably the most flexible solution to run just about any data service imaginable with fairly minimal effort. If you’re willing to invest a small amount of time figuring out how to run data services correctly on Kubernetes, Portworx is the best choice that I’ve found in the market today.”Read the case study
“After spending a year testing and researching a solution for persistent storage for containers, we found Portworx, which in the locked-down, secure government environment that we find ourselves in seems to be the shoe-in for allowing us to utilize the resources we have to get the outcome we want.”Read the case study
“I chose Portworx as the cloud native storage layer for my multi-tenant container-as-a-service platform because it allows me to offer best-in-class features like high availability, auto-scaling, backup and recovery, and encryption to my customers at a reasonable cost,” said Kris Watson, CEO of ComputeStacks, a company that provides a Docker container platform to service providers. “And now, PX-Enterprise with 3DSnap allows me to provide a time machine for my customer’s entire application, ensuring that I can always restore it to a particular point-in-time with guaranteed application consistency. No one else can do that.”
“Waycom is a hosting provider focused on the French market which values security, privacy and reliability. When we decided to bring a container-as-a-service offering to market, we knew we needed a cloud native storage solution. We evaluated multiple open-source and proprietary solutions for Kubernetes storage and chose Portworx because it is the most mature, stable and full-featured solution on the market with a great support team we can call if there is ever a problem.”Read the case study (in French)
