Storage in Kubernetes suitable for Managed Service Providers of Kubernetes environments or for any Kubernetes users.
Storage for bare-metal Kubernetes or storage for Amazon EKS. Easy deployment as a single docker container - on Kubernetes for Kubernetes.
Why simplyblock Kubernetes storage?
Service providers offering managed Kubernetes require a performant, reliable and well-integrated K8s storage solution and benefit from simplyblock's flexible, shared, high-performance block storage as an alternative to SAN systems and other software-defined alternatives.
Simplyblock combines the baseline performance of best-in-class SAN systems with the flexibility and scalability of software-defined solution such as Ceph for Kubernetes storage. A single block storage cluster may serve multiple Kubernetes clusters in a multi-tenancy setup.
Simplyblock supports K8s block storage via the CSI driver in both HCI and Disaggregated Deployment Models. Write concurrently on multiple containers and nodes via distributed file system support.
Start from single node, grow to 255 nodes in a single storage cluster. Scales safely and impactless while online. Performance scales linearly.
Capacity and load distribution is re-balanced over time and during changes to the cluster (device failures, repair, replacements, expansion).
Up to 10x lower system cost per TB and up to 50x lower system cost per IOPS while delivering baseline performance as best-in-class SAN systems in top configurations
Simplyblock offers full, native integration for Kubernetes via CSI. Deploy complete cluster and attach storage to hosts as docker swarm or Kubernetes pod within minutes.
Ultra low access latency and great scalability
Similarly to ceph, simplyblock solution is based on commodity server hardware and TCP/IP but rather than proprietary SAN technology, it provides very low access latency, high IOPS/GB and CPU core, great scalability and flexibility. Simplyblock is a great option for high-performance Kubernetes storage.
Accelerate your Kubernetes performance while saving costs
Benefit from the first highly secure and scalable K8s storage solution designed from scratch for hybrid clouds
10x cheaper per TB of storage and per k-IOPS than conventional SAN storage for Kubernetes
Super-easy to switch
Switching between Amazon EBS Elastic Block Storage or S3 and simplyblock or back can be achieved in minutes
Linear scalability through distributed cluster architecture: scales beyond 100,000,000 IOPS
Designed for Hybrid-Cloud
Bandwidth-efficient (near) real-time replication from/to the AWS cloud independent of non-cloud storage infrastructure
Add, remove or replace SSDs and storage nodes at any time - the cluster will always re-balance storage usage and load across all available resources
Resilient against ransomware attacks
First block storage with zero RPO point-in-time recovery after ransomware attacks
