Flexibility containers with persistency & performance of all-flash
Containers are becoming the default application development paradigm for the on-demand enterprise. The Kaminario K2 Flocker plugin, developed in partnership with ClusterHQ, lets Dockerized applications run on a persistent and highly efficient all-flash storage architecture.
Application developers leverage containers to simplify and agility in bringing software products to market. Kaminario’s K2 all-flash storage extends this agility with self-optimizing, on-demand architecture that can flexibly adopt to the needs of an evolving business, without compromising on resiliency and availability.
The Kaminario K2 Flocker plugin allows data volumes contained on a K2 array to map to every node in a Docker cluster. The Flocker agent, developed by ClusterHQ, creates and mounts storage volumes on the K2 to individual containers.
The open source plugin provides a high level set of storage management features such as discovery, inventory management, storage provisioning/de-provisioning and monitoring. This allows any application running on Docker containers to leverage intelligent features of the K2 including data reduction, native replication for disaster recovery, K-RAIDTM, and global metadata management.
Kaminario’s K-Assured program makes the deployment of Dockerized applications on the K2 platform a no-brainer with assurances on effective capacity, high availability, consistent performance, perpetual scale, fixed maintenance costs and perpetual SSD life.
Watch and listen as Matan Avi-Tal, Senior Solutions Engineer at Kaminario, walks you through how the Kaminario K2 Flocker plugin can be used to provide persistent storage to your Docker applications.
