StorageOS (now Ondat) Announces V2.0 to Address Kubernetes Maturity and Deployment Trends


Company experiences consistent month on month growth with over 3,000 clusters installed globally

March 31, 2020 – London, UK StorageOS (now Ondat), a leading provider of cloud native, software-defined, persistent storage for Kubernetes, today announced V2.0. By deploying the StorageOS container, the smallest container footprint in the industry, enterprises can run stateful workloads with Kubernetes in production at scale. 

“Trends in the cloud native market have shown that users want to run hyper-converged and/or multiple-cluster Kubernetes environments with the underlying storage to support cloud native workflows and stateful applications,” said Alex Chircop, CEO and CTO at StorageOS. “V2.0 has been enhanced to meet these trends in the rapidly evolving Kubernetes market. 

In support of cloud native storage adoption, StorageOS has experienced consistent month on month growth with over 3,000 deployed clusters in the last year. It signifies the increased demand for cloud native storage for Kubernetes.

Chircop continued, “Our growth in deployed clusters points to the maturing Kubernetes market. We see users running multiple-cluster deployments in various patterns or bigger clusters with more nodes. StorageOS is used to seamlessly scale to support large environments with predictability for replication and failover.” 

StorageOS V2.0 includes:

  • StorageOS Delta Sync – reduces the time to recovery allowing rapid cluster convergence by only replicating the missed data to the node.
  • Enhanced scalability – volumes and replicas are tightly coupled and behave as semi-independent units where decisions can be made independent of the rest of the cluster. Users can scale Kubernetes clusters while maintaining predictable performance and recovery.
  • Secure by default – designed from the ground up to enable security at every layer of the stack, V2.0 improves security with encryption in transit. Traffic between nodes is encrypted and authenticated.
  • Performance improvements – StorageOS V2.0 performance improvements help enterprises improve the overall performance of stateful applications. 

Enrico Signoretti, GigaOm Research Analyst said, “StorageOS is a cloud-native solution designed explicitly for Kubernetes. As such, the product is more flexible, easier to manage, and integrate with the Kubernetes platform than traditional storage systems.”

Designed to run on any Kubernetes platform (in the cloud, on-premises or a hybrid), StorageOS offers self-service cloud native storage to simplify deployment and workflows required of complex and dynamic application deployments. StorageOS is designed to cope with unpredictable failure scenarios common in Kubernetes deployments.
