Architecting a Database as a Service to meet the needs of both your developers and traditional enterprise requirements in a Kubernetes environment is challenging. Your developers want speed and ease of use, with self service, auto scaling, and automated deployments. Your enterprise policies dictate strict rules around data protection, access control, encryption, and key management.
Developers want cloud native interfaces to automate deployment and operations.
DevOps need “set it and forget it” declarative policy driven scaling.
Most modern data services are complex distributed systems that run across machines. You need to be able to manage the database as a whole, not as a collection of individual Pods.
You need to be able to centrally administer policy compliant data protection for snapshots, backup, and disaster recovery while at the same time enabling a self-service experience for your developers.
Enterprise policies dictate robust role based access control, encryption, and key management.
Portworx gives developers the self-service they want, while maintaining operational control, data protection and security that IT requires.
Portworx lets you easily offer any database-as-service to your users without being an expert in each data service, because our app-specific capabilities automate deployments, snapshots, backup, and more.
Portworx makes it dead simple for dev teams to deploy a database-as-a-service without waiting for IT. But you can set storage and resource quotas and centrally apply policies to maintain control.
Accelerate adoption and automation of Day 2 operations with PX-Autopilot without needing extra staff. Increase reliability and cut your storage costs in half at the same time.
Portworx aggregates your underlying storage in the cloud (AWS EBS, Google PD, etc) or on-prem (bare metal, NetApp, EMC, vSAN, etc) and turns it into a container-native storage fabric.
Give your users near bare metal performance while offering optional hyper-convergence of Pods and data volumes for super fast data locality, even in the case of Node failures.
Achieve RPO Zero for your apps and data with container and namespace granular backups without being limited by machine-based backups of traditional DR.
Run even sensitive apps on Kubernetes with Portworx’s built in encryption, BYOK, and role-based access controls for your mission-critical data.
“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, NIOLEARN MORE ▸
