Mesosphere Partners with Portworx to Accelerate Production Deployments of DC/OS in the Enterprise
Portworx frameworks for Cassandra, Apache Kafka, Elasticsearch and Hadoop added to Mesosphere Service Catalog, supported by joint Mesosphere-Portworx Reference Architecture
Los Altos, Calif. — Sept. 6, 2017 — Portworx, the leading provider of production-focused container data services for DevOps, today announced its collaboration with Mesosphere to support customers running big data applications in production on Mesosphere DC/OS with Portworx PX-Enterprise. Portworx is the first Mesosphere partner to offer external persistent volume support in DC/OS frameworks for Cassandra, Apache Kafka, Elasticsearch and Hadoop. These frameworks enable Mesosphere to support additional enterprise-class workloads in production environments, accelerating overall Mesosphere deployments.
In addition to these frameworks for popular stateful applications, Mesosphere and Portworx have collaborated on a Reference Architecture designed to help enterprises easily deploy scalable, performant, data-rich applications in production.
When it comes to running stateful applications in production, care must be taken to ensure persistence, high availability and security on any data service or infrastructure in a completely automated way. Portworx can scale up to 1000 nodes per cluster and is used in production by DC/OS customers in healthcare, global manufacturing, telecom and federal agencies to provide the operational and data management solutions enterprises require to run mission critical data services in production with confidence.
“Enterprise applications are inherently stateful, which is why Mesosphere has invested so heavily to make DC/OS the best place to run containerized microservices and big data services together in production,” said William Freiberg, COO, Mesosphere. “We have heard from our customers that Portworx makes it even easier to leverage data services by adding a rich volume management capability to provisioning and operational workflows. We are excited to see these two technologies come together seamlessly.”
“Joint Mesosphere and Portworx customers are some of the most sophisticated enterprise IT organizations and container users today, which means they have extremely high standards for reliability, performance, and scale,” said Eric Han, VP of Product Management, Portworx. “The Mesosphere and Portworx partnership will enable more customers to run mission-critical data services on DC/OS, which will accelerate the deployment of containers in production and allow more enterprises to become truly cloud native. We’re proud to be included in the Mesosphere Service Catalog.”
Mesosphere is leading the enterprise transformation toward distributed computing and hybrid cloud. Mesosphere DC/OS is the premier platform for building, deploying, and elastically scaling modern applications and big data. DC/OS makes running containers, data services, and microservices easy across your own hardware and cloud instances. Mesosphere was founded in 2013 by the architects of hyperscale infrastructures at Airbnb and Twitter and the co-creator of Apache Mesos. Mesosphere is headquartered in San Francisco with additional offices in New York and Hamburg, Germany. Mesosphere’s investors include Andreessen Horowitz, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Khosla Ventures, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, and Microsoft.
