OpenShift 4.2

Type

Operator

Rating

4 reviews

Provision persistent volumes that can be mounted into containers, allowing you to run stateful workloads on OpenShift. Our deterministic performance makes us particularly suitable for databases and message queues. We offer several features that can be enabled per-volume, including synchronous replication for data integrity, and encryption at rest to protect data. Data locality automatically co-locates pods with the volumes they rely on, providing improved performance.

Unmatched performance

StorageOS runs applications up to 15 times faster than any other storage provider on the market, giving industry leading performance and low latency for your stateful applications.

Reliability & Scalability

Delta Sync reduces the time to recovery allowing rapid cluster convergence by only replicating the missed data to the node. Synchronous replication for high availability enables quick recovery of applications and databases. Volumes are accessible across the entire cluster providing high availability, durability, and consistency of application data.

Deployment

Installs anywhere on-premises, bare metal, VMs, or in the cloud, supporting native integration with containers, Kubernetes and CSI. Deployed as a container, all data services are optimized and integrated inline to the StorageOS data plane ensuring the lowest resource overhead and low latency performance. The StorageOS container runs like any other application, with no dependencies on proprietary kernels, storage protocols or other layered services.

Manageability

CLI – open source CLI to manage cluster-wide configuration. GUI – visualize the storage environment with the StorageOS GUI for ease of use. RESTful API – HTTP API used for managing volumes and StorageOS services.

Observability

Log streams for observability and Prometheus for instrumentation.

Ease of use

The operator makes it easy to install. Simply provision volumes and connect them to applications, enabling self-service automation for your volumes – cloud-native storage has never been so easy!

Volume

Dynamically provision self-service storage using Kubernetes CSI, Storage Classes and Persistent Volumes Claims. Declarative configuration makes life simple for engineers.

Security

Security at every layer of the stack with automated certificate management, secure endpoints and encryption of data between nodes. Keys are unique per volume and stored as Kubernetes secrets.

    "Cloud Native Storage adoption"

    What do you like best?

    Cloud Native solution Enterprise Solution : StorageOS V2 Easy integration with Openshift and Native Kubernetes (Validated OCP 3.11 /Storage OS 1.5 and K8S 1.16.x / StorageOS V2.x) Support & reactivity

    What do you dislike?

    Pricing model StorageOS 1.5 vs StorageOS V2.x But i understand that all the new features will be included at same cost in Storage V2.x

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    In the next two year we're expecting that 70% of the new workload will run containers in production. StorageOS solve the problem of running stateful applications with container technologies. Cloud Native Storage is one of the key element to be able to deploy any kind of workload in any cloud.

    "Great container-native solution for replacing a previous NFS deployment"

    What do you like best?

    We chose StorageOS as a replacement for an NFS deployment on an OpenShift cluster. It was very easy to install using the provided operator and we were impressed with the performance. The support team from StorageOS is very helpful, and responds quickly to our requests.

    What do you dislike?

    ReadWriteMany volumes are currently in Technology Preview

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    - Replacing NFS for container-native deployments - Increased performance - Increased reliability
