Portworx and HPE Release New Solution for Containerized Applications

By Ken Briodagh January 18, 2018

In a recent release, Portworx, the solution for running stateful containers in production, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), have announced a solution based reference configuration that allows enterprises of all sizes to easily deploy, scale, and manage stateful container workloads. This new solution is designed to enable IT teams to deploy a scale out container platform on bare metal using a combination of HPE Synergy composable system, Kubernetes and Portworx’s cloud native storage platform. The result is a solution that can be deployed in 30 minutes or less, is highly container and storage elastic, and can scale to many nodes with bare metal performance.  

Working together, HPE and Portworx have encapsulated the best practices for deploying such an architecture along with deployment automation scripts and playbooks.

“The HPE-Portworx solution for containerized workloads strikes an important balance for enterprise IT, between automation and control,” said Murli Thirumale, CEO, Portworx. “HPE Synergy automates hardware provisioning while Kubernetes and Portworx automate the application lifecycle management, a boon to enterprise IT. At the same time, PX-Enterprise enables IT to maintain full control over their storage environment using Portworx’s configurable class-of-service, encryption and backup policies.”

The reference configuration leverages:

  • Kubernetes as a scale-out and efficient container orchestrator and scheduler
  • Portworx PX-Enterprise as the highly reliable, cloud-native, and container centric storage platform to run stateful container workloads
  • HPE Synergy as the composable infrastructure that offers flexible compute and storage to the container applications and enables infrastructure as code for automation

“Running enterprise container workloads at scale requires compute and storage that are highly flexible, scalable and available,” said McLeod Glass, VP Production Management, HPE. “Together Portworx and HPE deliver a fully integrated cloud native storage layer on top of HPE Synergy’s composable infrastructure, enabling scalable data and compute services for containers on a Kubernetes cluster.  This will vastly simplify the customer’s ability to deliver stateful container services through deployment automation and running native container storage on HPE’s composable systems.”
