High performance storage, HA, DR, backup, and security for stateful services running on MSFT AKS

English Intermediate Azure (Apps & Infra)

In order to run stateful services and applications on Kubernetes, you need scalable persistent storage similar to what is used for VMs, but optimised for containers. Legacy storage systems don’t scale to the levels achievable with Kubernetes. With Portworx on Microsoft Azure, organisations can: 1• Operate at enterprise scale. Get the same scalability for data that Azure provides for compute. 2• Meet strict SLAs. Run stateful applications on Azure Kubernetes Service and still meet strict SLAs and regulatory requirements with high availability, Kubernetes integrated disaster recovery. 3• Move apps and data seamlessly. Migrate and backup entire applications, including data, between clusters in a single datacenter or cloud, or between clouds. 4• Achieve Zero RPO and < 1 minute RTO Disaster Recovery for mission-critical stateful apps and databases. 5• Secure data automatically. Eliminate security risks with automatic policy-based data encryption in transit and at rest, as well as complete role-based access controls integrated with corporate authentication systems.
