DataCore Releases Plugins Kubernetes and Docker
January 30, 2019

DataCore Software released two plugins enabling containerized applications and databases to access persistent storage volumes through its software-defined storage (SDS) services.

Both plugins provide several options for advanced data protection and data recovery for dependable, predictable behavior at scale.

DataCore offers DevOps and IT operations managers a control plane of software-defined storage services spanning container hosts, virtualized machines, and bare metal servers — whether on-premises or in the cloud. This approach provides a simple method to modernize applications and adopt containers—and does not require migrating data or sacrificing capabilities.

Among the options available via the plugins, Continuous Data Protection (CDP) is proving especially valuable in mitigating the damage from ransomware or other data corruption issues. CDP enables data images to be rewound back in time before the attack occurred. It works like a DVR without the constraints, data loss, or overhead of periodic point-in-time snapshots.

The first plugin adheres to the Kubernetes Container Storage Interface (CSI) v1.0.0 specification.

The second is a Docker-certified plugin that implements the Docker Volume Plugin specification.

The plugins are available as no-charge options for SANsymphony and DataCore Hyperconverged Virtual SAN customers under a current support contract. Both iSCSI and Fibre Channel access to the volumes is supported.

DataCore also announced that it has joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). CNCF serves as the neutral home for collaboration and brings together the industry's top developers, end users and vendors – including the world's largest public cloud and enterprise software companies, as well as dozens of innovative startups. This further illustrates DataCore's commitment to working with the industry to deliver highly-effective software-defined storage solutions for container deployments.
