December 5, 2017

Virtuozzo Storage for Container Solutions for Kubernetes and Docker On Display at this Week’s KubeCon Event in Austin at Booth #S12

SEATTLE – December 5, 2017 – Virtuozzo, a hyperconverged infrastructure software provider, today announced the latest release of the Virtuozzo platform, its integrated container, hypervisor and storage offering for businesses and service providers. The new release features simplified set up and automated operations that makes managing high availability fast and easy. The release also features enhancements to Virtuozzo Storage that support a growing number of uses cases, including hyperconverged infrastructure deployments and storage for application containers.

Virtuozzo Storage supports both Kubernetes and Docker Swarm container orchestration platforms with native and certified storage integrations. Virtuozzo will be at this week’s KubeCon event, taking place in Austin, Texas from December 6-8 to demonstrate these solutions. Participating as a Silver Sponsor, the company will be showing attendees how they can solve the persistent storage problem for containers. This includes demos for both Kubernetes and Docker environments – taking place in Booth #S12. 

New Release Brings Advances to Compute and Storage

The Virtuozzo platform with integrated storage optimizes infrastructure costs with a pure software-defined solution that runs on any x86 server-based architecture – or dedicated bare metal servers from the cloud.

The latest release brings improvements designed to further simplify the deployment and management of containers and virtual machines, most notably in the areas of high availability (HA) and storage. In the event of a node failure, all instances are now automatically relaunched on another node, which is made possible by software-defined shared storage. With the new release, the process for configuring HA only requires one simple step from the end-user, which saves time and reduces the chance of errors.

Virtuozzo Storage provides distributed, software-defined storage that can support multiple use cases for enterprises and service providers, including hyperconverged infrastructure deployments and container storage for cloud native apps and micro-services.

With each update, Virtuozzo brings improvements to both its core storage components and value-added features to push reliability and security as far as possible, while making management simpler.

The following storage updates are included in this release:

  • Automated Alerts and Email Notifications – Users can now receive automated alerts and updates on storage issues, view logs and audit all actions – centrally managed from the Virtuozzo Storage UI.
  • Enhanced S3 Geo Replication –New capabilities added to protect data against data center outages with support for multiple remote clusters and a new simplified configuration procedure available in the Virtuozzo Storage UI.
  • Define QoS Limits for iSCSI targets – Users can now define limits for IOPS and bandwidth from within the storage cluster control panel per iSCSI targets.

The new release also brings added features to support the live migration of containers and VMs, including the ability to preserve the initial datastore when performing migrations to ensure proper system configurations when moving data.

“Our goal is to bring higher levels of simplicity, efficiency and flexibility to our products with every release,” said George Karidis, Chief Executive Officer at Virtuozzo. “With this update, we’ve made it much easier to ensure high availability, while continuing to make sure our customers have the best-performing, most flexible options for cutting-edge software-defined storage.”
