Pure Storage extends the as-a-Service model across the entire suite of Portworx offerings and introduces the next generation of Portworx Enterprise

Platform engineers can run Kubernetes in production at scale with next-generation performance and reliability in seconds

At KubeCon North America 2022, Pure Storage® (NYSE: PSTG), the IT pioneer delivering the world’s most advanced data storage technology and services, announced a new fully managed service for Portworx® Enterprise to bring a Kubernetes-ready computing plane to all developers working with containerized applications. With Portworx Enterprise 3.0, the underlying platform for this new fully managed service, DevOps teams can run mission-critical Kubernetes apps in production with elastic scalability and unmatched data availability. Now the entire suite of Portworx offerings can be used as a fully managed service by users of Amazon EKS, RedHat OpenShift, and all other Kubernetes services (fully managed or upstream deployments).

“Portworx’s goal has always been to help platform engineering teams provide their developers with an enterprise-class Kubernetes-ready computing platform with speed, simplicity and scale. By delivering the fully managed service for the Portworx platform, the #1 Kubernetes computing platform, we bring the cloud experience, on any storage infrastructure, at the fingertips of any developer who wants to work with Kubernetes apps in production.” – Murli Thirumale, VP & GM, Cloud Native Business Unit, Pure Storage.

The fully managed service provides ease of use and faster deployment of Kubernetes data on any cloud or on-premises storage, enabling DevOps and platform teams to service and scale containerized apps to production in seconds, versus weeks or months. The fully managed service will offer a no-install, easy-to-use and easy-to-manage experience to users without the need for container expertise, making Day 0 and Day 2 operations for Kubernetes clusters easy in a few clicks.

With the 3.0 release of Portworx Enterprise, Portworx continues to push the boundaries of performance and reliability for containerized workloads in a unified computing platform for file, block and object storage.

  • The new PX-Fast capacity provides industry-leading performance for low-latency data services such as Kafka, Elastic, and MongoDB with fast ingestion needs, and high throughput for online transaction processing (OLTP), online analytical processing (OLAP), and machine learning (ML) workloads. The Kubernetes Data Management platform of Portworx provides unique throughput/IOPS extremely close to that of writing directly to the high-performance NVMe-based infrastructure, increasing the underlying performance to over one million IOPS. PX-Fast makes Kubernetes data storage look like local storage for containerized apps and data. Customers are able to harness the power of petabytes of data generated from apps like video-on-demand, VoIP, etc. with a near-zero error rate.
  • The Near-Sync DR capacity extends the existing Portworx Disaster Recovery capability by providing the lowest possible RPO between two cloud regions or geographically distant data centers, giving enterprises the desired level of business continuity. The Portworx platform has always supported disaster recovery capabilities with zero RPO and fast RTO between two city-region clusters with <10ms latency. This in itself is unachieved by anyone else in the industry. And with Near-Sync DR, the platform will extend its end-to-end DR solution with a guaranteed 24 second RPO and a fast RTO between two regions with higher network delays. Customers will be able to run their tier 1 mission-critical apps with the utmost confidence and self-confidence, leveraging the platform's world-class robustness and reliability.
  • The Object storage service capacity provides another storage interface (in addition to file and block storage) for running containerized workloads. Using this feature, users can manage and access object storage buckets with built-in Kubernetes integration for a single, consistent experience across the cloud and on-premises S3 stores.

“Red Hat OpenShift is the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform, providing a consistent foundation for developers to build, deploy, manage and scale containerized applications faster across hybrid and multi-cloud environments all the way to the edge. Portworx data management and data protection offerings help lock up key use cases for Red Hat OpenShift workloads in production This latest managed cloud service offering from Portworx by Pure Storage addresses increased customer interest in building a single platform to provide storage, migration and data management-as-a-service to developers on top of Red Hat OpenShift and demonstrates the power of an ecosystem of partners working together to better support our mutual customers’ needs.” – Chris Gray, Vice President, North America Partner Ecosystem, Red Hat

In addition, Portworx is introducing a free forever tier of Portworx Backup, the leading Kubernetes backup and data protection service. Platform teams can now get started with the fully managed Portworx Backup service without feature limitations and protect up to 1 TB of data at no cost. Each backup instance can manage hundreds of Kubernetes clusters. The free, fully managed Portworx Backup can be used indefinitely by any organization looking for an enterprise-class data protection service to protect their Kubernetes workloads in a few clicks.

The Portworx Enterprise 3.0 release and fully managed service will be available in early 2023. To learn more, visit:
