Containerized Appliance (CA) with container-native Storage
Deployment of applications and Storage has converged in a way Storage is served from containers. This eliminates the need to have an independent Storage cluster, enabling customers to achieve greater efficiency, cost savings, and integrated Storage for production-ready container environments.
An Enterprise grade integrated Scale Out persistent Storage to power the application containers.
Applications and Storage have been managed through different processes and by separate teams. However, this approach can be inefficient and hard to operate and maintain. To address that challenge, we are enabling developers to control both storage and application containers using a single control plane with Kubernetes plus OpenShift Container Platform. This fosters greater DevOps integration and automation, from development environments to on-premise and cloud production environments.
Development Cycles and easier application management “Dev” wants speed, choice and flexibility.
While “Ops” need stability and control how do you make everyone happy
Ease of use, control and stability provides a strong working environment to deploy containers.
