"Portworx is an important part of what we need to do to simplify our infrastructure. In case of an attack, we can easily recycle and rebuild the entire environment including all of the game servers within an hour or less. If there's an issue, I know Portworx is going to keep me safe and secure and, most importantly, make sure my player data
isn't lost." - Rob Cameron, Principal SRE, Roblox

"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
“Our Kubernetes environment relies on multiple SQL and NoSQL databases. We compared many cloud native storage solutions in order to provide the most reliable, performant and available service to our customers. After a rigorous evaluation, we chose Portworx not only because their technology is top notch, but because we can count on the Portworx team to support us through our cloud native journey.” - Alan MARTINS, VP of Infrastructure, DailyMotion, a Vivendi Company
"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"

"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."

"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."
"When I looked at how to achieve HA, snapshots, and scale, the only solution that I could use was Portworx. Portworx enabled me to increase revenue by offering a service that I would never have been able to build myself. I can oversubscribe my servers, thanks to thin provisioning. And I’m operationally efficient because Portworx automatically handles so many common failures that can occur in a dynamic server environment." - Greg Reed, CEO, MightWeb
"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
