DataCore Bolt Launched
May 18, 2022

DataCore Software announced DataCore Bolt, enterprise-grade container-native storage software for DevOps.

Stateful applications running on Kubernetes clusters in the cloud and on-premises benefit from Bolt’s dynamic provisioning of high-performance persistent storage. Bolt’s containerized microservices stack exploits low-latency and high IOPs characteristics of NVMe-oF/TCP along with Kubernetes’ intrinsic orchestration and resilience at scale.

“Early on we recognized that containers were going to be a once-in-a-generation transformation, where data storage has a singular impact on the deployment and responsiveness of microservice based applications. This is a market where modern storage technologies such as NVMe over Fabrics and platform-independent data services are in strong demand,” said Dave Zabrowski, CEO, DataCore Software. “With DataCore Bolt, we ... continue the heritage of innovation begun by MayaData by offering performant, scalable, flexible, reliable enterprise software that enables organizations to take the leap into the containerized world and respond quickly to change.”

Bolt is the company’s first commercially licensed Kubernetes storage product based on its acquisition of MayaData, the original developer of OpenEBS. Traditional storage infrastructures, by themselves, do not meet the data persistence and portability needs of today’s modern stateful workloads. In DevOps uses, their dependency on repetitive manual tasks slows down continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines – diminishing the advantages that containerization can bring.

Bolt is a storage solution purpose-built for Kubernetes that facilitates the deployment and release of production-ready software while enabling the agility required in a large-scale DevOps environment. Harnessing the benefits of NVMe hardware and NVMe-oF/TCP protocol, Bolt supports a composable and disaggregated storage architecture removing the overhead and sluggishness experienced with other storage products.

Whether in the cloud or on-premises, Bolt eliminates storage-related delays and accelerates code progression to ensure seamless application delivery through the DevOps pipeline, allowing teams to meet their deployment goals.

Bolt also allows DevOps to:

- Accelerate responsiveness of stateful workloads through low-latency access to NVMe drives

- Streamline DevOps CI/CD pipeline with containerized storage services orchestrated directly from Kubernetes

- Replace complex storage management with native Kubernetes automation

- Gain observability to storage behavior not possible with external systems

- Ensure portability of storage services by removing kernel/OS dependencies

- Enhance data resilience though volume replication across K8s nodes

Bolt works alongside other Kubernetes tools used for version control, configuration management, CI/CD automation code repository and artifact management, test automation, monitoring, and deployment.
