THE PROBLEM WE SOLVE
As applications move to the cloud, they shift from VMs to containers. Containers promise agile workloads, portable
across clouds to: Optimize resources, deliver responsive service, and lower cost.
But, containers don’t support compliant data standards for performance, security, availability, and protection.
Managing persistent data in this environment is still a laborious, but required, task.
- Data management capabilities must be stood up and maintained for each target application environment:
Projects can bog down, and user-driven initiatives may cut corners.
- Changing environments or cloud providers requires changing implementations: Once moved, “portable” container
apps tend to stay put—typically overprovisioned.
As a result, cost overruns, security breaches, data loss or cloud vendor lock-in can slow down cloud transformation
and erode expected benefits.
