Portworx Partnering with AWS for Kubernetes

By ET Bureau - February 22, 2022 4 Mins Read

Pure Storage, a pioneer in storage as a service, today announced a strategic agreement with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to develop solutions and enable programs for Pure’s Portworx solutions to help companies bring Kubernetes workloads into production.

Gartner predicts that by 2025, more than 85% of global organizations will run containerized applications in production, compared to less than 35% in 2019. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) is a managed service for running and scaling Kubernetes on AWS without the need to install, operate, and maintain a control plane or nodes in Kubernetes. As container adoption increases and more applications are deployed, companies are looking for more options to manage both stateful (more than once-used, such as email and online banking) and persistent data associated with modern apps.

Pure Storage’s Portworx can bring a fully integrated solution to customers for persistent storage, data protection, disaster recovery, hybrid and cross-region data migrations, and automated capacity management for developer-built Kubernetes applications.

  • Portworx Enterprise gets right to the heart of what Kubernetes developers and administrators want: data behaves like a cloud service. These users simply want to order storage based on their requirements (capacity, performance level, resiliency, security and access, protection level, and more) and let the data management layer figure out all the details.
  • Portworx PX-Backup  adds one-click enterprise-grade backup and recovery to all applications running on Kubernetes, even if they are stateless, i.e. each transaction is started from scratch and no reference or information about old transactions is stored.

As part of working with AWS, Portworx also announced an Early Access Program to Portworx Backup as-a-Service (BaaS) on AWS. Portworx BaaS features a modern data protection control plane to accelerate the implementation of data and app recovery, giving owners speed and simplicity to protect their Kubernetes applications. Portworx BaaS is one of many offerings as a service the company will deliver to customers in the future.

This three-year strategic investment is the latest step in the expansion of the relationship between Pure Storage and AWS, and will provide a comprehensive Kubernetes platform for mutual customers moving applications into production.

“Porttworx and Amazon EKS offer a solution that works best together and addresses some of the biggest challenges companies face when taking Kubernetes applications to enterprise scale,” says Murli Thirumale , vice president and general manager, Native Business Unit of the Cloud on Pure Storage. “We’re excited about the results we’ve seen from many customers using our solutions today and look forward to accelerating Kubernetes applications to an even larger base as a result of our expanded relationship with AWS, including our new Portworx Backup as-a-Service offering. on AWS.”

“As more companies adopt containers and Kubernetes to build and modernize applications, solutions that accelerate that journey to the cloud create significant value,” says Deepak Singh , vice president of Compute Services at AWS. “We are excited to work with Portworx to offer customers another option for backing up and managing data on Amazon EKS.”

“With demand for healthcare professionals increasing, we needed to quickly deliver new digital tools that better serve our customers, who rely on us to serve over 30% of their temporary medical workers in the US. We started by migrating most of our technology infrastructure on AWS and adopting Kubernetes to develop, test, and deploy new applications, but we needed a storage layer that was as flexible as the other elements of our cloud-native stack,” explains Reed Glauser., Director of Engineering at CHG Healthcare. “Porttworx added the features we needed to Amazon EKS, allowing us to streamline and automate our storage management, create new clusters and migrate seamlessly, and significantly accelerate and simplify our cloud development lifecycle.”
