StorONE today announced that it has become a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN). StorONE’s turnkey enterprise solution is built with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM, for DevOps environments with containers and microservices, allowing cloud-native business applications and traditional workloads to run on a single storage infrastructure.
Traditionally, DevOps environments have been separated for security and management purposes. However, the emerging need for continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) requires improved interoperability between DevOps and agile application delivery. Storage performance must support dynamic business requirements and multiple concurrent changes, especially in large test environments, based on containers or Kubernetes cluster nodes spun off for cloud-native applications.
StorONE’s TRU™ S1 Software Defined Storage integrated with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM is at the foundation of this solution. In one storage system, it provides databases with high-performance block storage; containerized application manifests and images that can be accessed via simple file storage; and modern cloud-native applications can store unstructured data persistently via S3-compatible object volumes.
“S1 is unique in its ability to deliver performance for both random and sequential workloads on one shared platform, so production workloads aren’t impacted during data set testing or analytics plus data integrity is maintained,” said Sree Deepak, Managing Director of Lyra Infosystems ASEAN, partner of GitLab. “The market has been waiting for a simplified turnkey DevOps architecture that supports cloud-native applications with complete data protection for containers and microservices.”
S1, using Oracle’s open-source software, delivers the performance, multiprotocol support and persistent storage needed by containerized applications and DevOps requirements, plus StorONE’s enterprise data services. Users can leverage StorONE’s writeable snapshot function for test and production applications, without compromising primary production data. When development and operational systems can co-exist in the same system, it organically encourages collaboration and a cohesive working culture to harness the benefits of a DevOps solution.
“StorONE and Oracle are helping developers to simplify complex DevOps infrastructure design, and by doing so, eliminating the high cost of provisioning and maintaining different storage systems,” said Gal Naor, StorONE co-founder and CEO. “One solution is now capable of serving the production and DevOps cultures simultaneously, so innovation is not constrained by security, scalability, and performance.”
“StorONE’s S1 Unified Enterprise Storage gives customers a more flexible, lower cost, higher performance alternative to traditional storage,” said Marc Staimer, President DragonSlayer Consulting. “It’s market setting efficiency enables those users the capability to extract higher storage performance from much less hardware.”
