Slash Operational Cost for Public Cloud
Ondat offers an unbeatable value-add solution for organizations using managed Kubernetes services from cloud providers. Our kube-native storage layer lets you utilize your cloud provider’s services more effectively.
On its own, Kube Native Kafka gives users new options to replace high-cost, hosted, cloud provider services for streaming, event and data pipelines, and ETL. But for customers already running Kafka in the Public Cloud, Ondat opens up additional paths for further, significant cost savings.
The majority of organizations running Kafka on Kubernetes in the Public Cloud will be restricted to using their cloud provider’s network-attached storage to deliver persistent storage. These services, such as: AWS EBS, Google Persistent Disk, and Azure Managed Disk, can cost up to 200 times more than local storage from the same provider. Ondat lets organizations create a resilient, high-performance Kube-Native storage pool using any available storage, including local disk.
Users can leverage the storage that comes bundled with their existing compute nodes and often lies redundant in Kube-Native environments. New storage capacity can be added at a fraction of the cost of other storage services, and all this comes combined with the benefits of faster I/O performance.
