Cloud-native technologies such as containers and Kubernetes have given organizations effective tools for building and deploying efficient and portable applications. A recent 451 Research Voice of the Enterprise (VotE): DevOps study shows that primary benefits driving the usage of cloud-native technologies include efficiency of IT operations, enhancements to developer speed and productivity, and application portability. However, in the same DevOps study, 56% of organizations with containers in use said that half or more of their container applications are stateful, indicating that the importance of – and the amount of data associated with – stateful containerized applications is on the rise.
The dynamic of data persistence and containers has evolved, and through capabilities such as the Kubernetes container-storage interface, it’s easier than ever to create persistent volumes for Kubernetes based applications. Download the 451 Research Business Impact Brief to learn:
- Operational challenges that come with Cloud-Native Applications
- Why storage for stateful apps must support multiple infrastructure types
- The importance of a data protection strategy for containerized apps and associated data volumes
