Pure Storage teams up with IBM to bring OpenShift hybrid workloads to IBM Cloud Satellite

By

Global Kubernetes Data Services Platform, Portworx by Pure Storage, has announced a partnership with IBM to enable OpenShift-based data services to run in hybrid cloud environments with performance, data protection, data security, and mobility on IBM Cloud Satellite.

IBM Cloud Satellite allows clients to run IBM Cloud services no matter whether it is on a cloud, on-premises, in multi-cloud, or at the edge, which IBM’s research is a growing area with increased proliferation of edge devices. This flexibility brings cloud capabilities to where client data resides, allowing organisations to focus on solving business problems. The product builds on IBM’s deep industry expertise across industries such as telecommunications, healthcare, banking, insurance, travel and transportation.

The Portworx by Pure Storage partnership fuels hybrid cloud environments by helping Government and enterprises manage and modernise workloads from bare-metal to multi-cloud or anything else in between, with Red Hat OpenShift.

IBM Cloud Satellite assists clients to address their security, privacy and data sovereignty requirements, and comply with local regulations, deploying and managing applications for specific markets in consistent ways. It offers high levels of control over critical data.

Portworx provides cloud-native applications with a uniform data services platform, encrypting data whether the Satellite volume is on-premises or in the cloud. Portwox also provides high availability and cross-cloud data protection so mission-critical stateful applications can run on Kubernetes and OpenShift with the reliability, performance and security expected of an enterprise-class storage solution, combined with agility, speed and automation.

Interested customers can purchase Portworx solutions through IBM.

Harish Grama, general manager, IBM Cloud, said, “With the pace of cloud adoption accelerating, companies are increasingly turning to hybrid cloud to allow them to innovate more efficiently while maintaining high levels of security and control. To help facilitate this momentum, IBM is investing $1B in its ecosystem initiative over the next three years to support ecosystem partners and speed the development of platforms such as IBM Cloud Satellite. Collaborating with ecosystem partners like Portworx by Pure Storage can help offer a wider set of clients new ways of bringing IBM Cloud to where their data resides.”

Murli Thirumale, vice president and general manager, Portworx by Pure Storage, said, “Portworx’s collaboration with IBM on IBM Cloud Satellite recognises the value we place in providing IBM Cloud customers with access to Kubernetes storage, data protection and data security platform solutions, regardless of location. Whether it’s on-premises, the public cloud, or both, Portworx works across data centre environments to enable customers to embrace hybrid cloud for demanding enterprise workloads.”
