Vox Media eliminated issues and app downtime

format_quote
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.”
