It’s the season for interesting announcements in the storage world. I don’t post about everything I get briefed on, but I do like to put up information on things I think are pretty cool. I first came across Datera at Storage Field Day 10. You can read my write-up on them here. I’m a fan of what they’re doing, and their platform is developing at quite a pace. So I was pleased to get a message from their CEO Marc Fleischmann wanting to tell me about a new integration they’ve developed for Google’s Kubernetes. Rather than go into it here, I thought it simpler to link to their press release and an article on the Datera blog.
According to Datera, this integration gives Kubernetes some additional grunt, including the ability to automatically:
- Tailor runtime storage capabilities for each stateful application;
- Scale applications; and
- Isolate and protect them with dedicated storage segments.
I think it’s worth checking out the excellent demo video which covers a lot of the capability. If you’re looking to add some scalable, persistent storage to your Kubernetes deployment, Datera might be just what you need.
