Portworx Achieves AWS Outposts Ready Designation
With the Portworx Kubernetes Data Services Platform, AWS customers can run mission-critical applications on-premises and in the cloud for a truly consistent hybrid experience
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Portworx by Pure Storage, one of the industry’s most complete Kubernetes Data Services Platforms, today announced that it has achieved the AWS Outposts Ready designation, part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program. This designation recognizes that Portworx Enterprise has demonstrated successful integration with AWS Outposts deployments. AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience.
Achieving the AWS Outposts Ready designation differentiates Portworx as an AWS Partner with a product fully tested on AWS Outposts. AWS Outposts Ready products are generally available and supported for AWS customers, with clear deployment documentation for AWS Outposts. AWS Service Ready Partners have demonstrated success building products integrated with AWS services, helping AWS customers evaluate and use their technology productively, at scale and varying levels of complexity.
Today’s news follows Portworx’s recent recognition for achieving AWS Advanced Technology Partner status. Popular Portworx products such as Portworx Enterprise, PX-Backup and PX-Autopilot for Capacity Management are available today in AWS Marketplace, enabling scalable container storage, data protection, capacity management, data security and migrations for Kubernetes applications running in any AWS Region or AWS Outpost. Portworx is recognized by GigaOm Research as the leading data storage solution for Kubernetes, and is trusted by Global 2000 companies including Carrefour, Comcast, GE Digital, Lufthansa, and T-Mobile.
“Portworx’s continued recognition as an AWS Partner speaks volumes to the work we’ve done in providing a world-class Kubernetes storage, data protection and data security platform to enterprise users everywhere,” said Murli Thirumale, General Manager, Cloud Native Business Unit, Pure Storage. “Today’s AWS Outposts Ready designation encapsulates Portworx’s ability to work across any data center environment – whether on-premises, cloud, or hybrid – to better serve AWS customers.”
To support the seamless integration and deployment of AWS Outposts ready solutions, AWS established the AWS Outposts Ready Program to help customers identify products integrated with AWS Outposts and spend less time evaluating new tools, and more time scaling their use of products that are integrated with AWS Outpost deployments.
