SvSAN & Containers

Making the edge ready for containers

Persistent, highly available storage for Kubernetes orchestrated containers

It’s time to make the edge ready for containers. Containers give organizations an easy way to package and deploy applications at the edge where IT support is limited or non-existent. StorMagic has developed the SvSAN Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver to enable highly available, persistent storage for containers - the only 2-node cluster that supports VMs and containers for less than $10,000.

Simple

Easily deploy highly available persistent storage for VMs and containers

Cost-Effective

No additional hardware, licensing or administrative costs to add containers

Flexible

One highly available storage platform for VMs and containers to co-exist

The SvSAN Container Storage Interface

The SvSAN Container Storage Interface (CSI) is a driver that is used in conjunction with existing SvSAN software to allow Kubernetes orchestrated containers to use persistent, highly available storage alongside VMs. SvSAN creates highly available storage in clusters of just two nodes which ensures a cost-effective, efficient solution to run applications in containers at the edge. It enables additional advanced storage capabilities for containers, including automation and seamless data synchronization and through high availability, protects both VMs and containers from downtime.

SvSAN 2 node with VM & Containers

For organizations looking to begin the migration of their edge applications from VMs to containers, the SvSAN CSI driver provides an ideal flight path, facilitating the use of containers and VMs on the same hardware simultaneously. This “journey to containers” allows organizations, once ready, to migrate one or a few applications at a time and the flexibility to retain applications in VMs that will never be migrated, all within the same infrastructure.

White Paper: Simple Storage for Containers at the Edge

Containers are a perfect, lightweight solution for running applications in edge environments. But they have to be run alongside legacy applications, with a fraction of the compute, storage, and networking resources compared to the datacenter. What storage infrastructure should you be considering to enable containerized applications at the edge of the enterprise? This white paper has the details.
