Pure Storage, the IT pioneer that delivers storage as-a-service in a multi-cloud world, today announced Portworx Data Services, the industry’s first Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) Platform for Kubernetes. Pure delivers a modern data experience that empowers organizations to run their operations as a true, automated, storage as-a-service model seamlessly across multiple clouds.
Modern applications are composed of dozens or even hundreds of microservices, often supported by one or more data services such as databases, streaming and message queues, search, AI/ML pipelines, and more. Managing so many types of data services is complex, but this complexity is augmented further by the number of database instances to manage and scale across disparate test, dev, and production environments, across availability zones and clouds, with varied requirements around performance, high availability, data protection, data security, compliance, and more. As a result of this complexity, DevOps teams spend a large amount of their time firefighting deployments and operations, instead of delivering new features customers want.
Murli Thirumale, VP and GM, Cloud Native Business Unit, Pure Storage, said “As the market leader in data management for Kubernetes, we’ve built a foundation for our customers to deploy stateful applications on Kubernetes with confidence and ease. Portworx Data Services is the next leap forward in this journey. Now we don’t just give IT teams the tools needed to run data services in production, we are providing an as-a-service experience for the data services themselves so our customers can focus on innovation, not operations.”
Portworx Data Services delivers automated DBaaS management to solve these problems and more. With the click of a button, DevOps engineers can deploy a managed, production-grade data service on Kubernetes from the industry’s broadest catalog of options for SQL, NoSQL, search, streaming, and more, with fully automated Day-2 operations.
