How to Get More Out of Kubernetes with an Intelligent Storage Platform

Ten years ago (2014) when Diamanti was founded, containers were just becoming known as a great option for hosting applications.  

Because they can share an underlying operating system, containers are more lightweight, more efficient and far more affordable than virtual machines (VMs). But containers also have their flaws. 

That’s why we made this video. It’s all about the challenges of Kubernetes—and how Diamanti can help you solve those challenges. 

As it happens, 2014 was also the year that Kubernetes was being introduced—in 2014 Google made Kubernetes available as an open source solution under the auspices of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. 

Diamanti was one of the very first to recognize that when it comes to containers, Kubernetes was a great choice as an orchestration engine. 

But we also saw Kubernetes’ flaws—and we set out to solve them by being one of the first with a comprehensive, intelligent storage platform for Kubernetes. 

Because it was initially seen as a solution for dev/test environments, many of the things needed for Kubernetes to be success at enterprise scale were simply not there…like: 

  • Persistent storage for stateful applications. 
  • Data backup and disaster recovery capabilities.  
  • Deterministic performance through quality of service (QoS) guarantees 
  • Security and access control 
  • Application lifecycle management 
  • Vendor lock-in 
  • Multi-cloud support 

This video looks at all of these challenges and more. 

When Kubernetes is being used in small, limited implementations, these deficiencies really don’t matter. But when Kubernetes is being used at enterprise scale, they matter a lot and make it difficult to get the full value out of containers.  

Because Diamanti has been 100% committed to Kubernetes, we’ve been able to stay out in front and solve the challenges that keep companies from getting the full value out of containers. 

Watch this video. It highlights the key challenges that keep organizations from getting the full value out of Kubernetes. And it also shows exactly how we go about addressing them.
