Portworx Operator Achieves Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification
May 08, 2019

Portworx released the Portworx Enterprise Operator on OperatorHub, designed to simplify cloud-native storage and data management for Kubernetes and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

With this release, the Portworx Enterprise Operator enables organizations to automatically install, configure and upgrade their Portworx Enterprise platform using the Red Hat OpenShift Certified Operator download from OperatorHub.

Today's announcement extends Portworx's previously announced Container Catalog certification for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, helping to simplify operations of stateful services running on OpenShift for Portworx's customer base.

While Kubernetes has made running cloud-native applications easier and more reliable, the environments in which Kubernetes applications operate need to be installed, updated, migrated or expanded with time. These tasks become more difficult for system administrators and operations teams as the volume and complexity of enterprise applications continues to increase. Red Hat OpenShift Certified Operators works to help solve these management problems by providing a framework designed to make software self-installing, self-updating and self-managing. Now, the Portworx Enterprise Operator can make it easier to take advantage of the combined benefits of Portworx Enterprise and Red Hat OpenShift by automatically installing, configuring and updating Portworx Enterprise on OpenShift, helping to free up system administrators to focus on more value-added business tasks.

"Today's enterprises need a cloud-native storage and data management solution that can keep pace with the volume of their applications and customer demand for new products and services," said Murli Thirumale, CEO and cofounder of Portworx. "Our expanding relationship as a Red Hat technology partner with Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification demonstrates our ability to help enterprises run and manage mission-critical stateful applications and high performance data workloads on OpenShift. Red Hat is the world's leading provider of open source solutions, and we look forward to serving our joint customers through this collaboration."

The Portworx Enterprise Operator is available on OperatorHub.io and on Red Hat OpenShift.
