Meet Container-Defined Storage from Portworx
As agility in the data center increases with increasing adoption of container-based provisioning, some have noticed a major infrastructure component lagging behind: storage. Enterprise storage is notoriously slow-moving from a provisioning perspective; beyond that, most or all of the storage platforms in use today weren’t created with containers in mind.
That all changes today with the launch of Portworx’s enterprise storage product PX-Enterprise. They describe their solution as “container-defined storage.” The developer-focused PX-Developer has been available for a while to give developers early access, but today Portworx is saying they’re ready for prime time.
The ActualTech Media team was recently with the Portworx team in their office in Redwood City, CA to talk about the looming release. The videos below give an awesome overview of what PX-Enterprise is offering customers and how your storage workflows could change to support a container-focused infrastructure.
