Robin.io Embraces IBM Cloud Satellite with Container-Native Storage, Advanced Data Management CapabilitiesMarch 4, 2021
Robin.io announced that its solution for Kubernetes storage can run on IBM Cloud Satellite, to help enterprises manage their applications across multiple environments. IBM Cloud Satellite, now generally available, enables clients to run IBM Cloud services in multiple environments-on IBM Cloud, on premises, or at the edge-all delivered as a service. This flexibility will help bring cloud capabilities to where client data resides, in the environment of their choice, while focusing on consistency, user experience, and security.
Robin.io is part of IBM’s ecosystem of partners fueling hybrid cloud environments by helping clients manage and modernize workloads from bare-metal to multicloud and everything in between with Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform. IBM Cloud Satellite is engineered to give clients the flexibility to bring their applications to environments where their data resides while leveraging the security of IBM Cloud.
There can be many benefits to having multiple cloud environments, provided companies can overcome inconsistency, complexity, and a shortage of skills and time required to operate and secure these rapidly evolving platforms. These cloud architectures are further complicated by the different development practices each environment requires. The Robin Cloud Native Storage solution will be available on IBM Cloud Pak for Data and as a standalone product on Red Hat Marketplace. An OpenShift Certified Operator, Robin Cloud Native Storage is verified by Red Hat as a supported enterprise application that works across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
“Robin Cloud-Native Storage (CNS) is designed to bring advanced data management capabilities to Kubernetes, whether deployed on-premises or in any public cloud,” said Partha Seetala, founder and CEO of Robin.io. “Robin CNS also offers application-consistent seamless mobility for workloads between clouds and on-premises clusters. Robin CNS coupled with IBM Cloud Satellite can help customers gain the flexibility to run, protect and move their applications to the infrastructures best suited to their business needs while still leveraging the security and operations benefits of the public cloud. Satellite locations can be in on-premises data centers, colocation centers or even at an Edge deployment.”
“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,” said Harish Grama, general manager, IBM Cloud. “To help facilitate this momentum, IBM is investing $1 billion 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 Robin.io can help offer a wider set of clients new ways of bringing IBM Cloud to where their data resides.”
