Kubernetes Data Services are at the Heart of Digital Transformation

Kubernetes Data Services are at the Heart of Digital Transformation

An optimal DevOps environment enables teams to operate and manage infrastructure to develop, test, integrate and deliver code. DevOps teams use CI/CD methodology to ensure that new code or code changes are tested, and production ready applications and updates are delivered to the business. This is the heart of digital transformation. 

However, transformation isn’t possible without the right tools and technologies to support cultural and strategic change. The ionir Data Services Platform for Kubernetes enables developers, operations, and platform engineers to thrive in a DevOps environment. Let’s take a closer look at the three ways ionir delivers value to DevOps environments.

1. DevOps Requires a Software-Defined Infrastructure

A DevOps environment is only as efficient and effective as the technology that supports it. The right software-defined infrastructure like ionir, reduces the overall cost of procurement, operation, and management of infrastructure to support DevOps pipelines by enabling customers to stand up right-sized Kubernetes environments whenever and wherever it is required.

The ionir Data Services Platform is built in Kubernetes, making it easy to deploy and run different persistent workloads. When an application needs to be updated, ionir’s capabilities deliver high-speed persistent data to the application. With quick access to data via standard APIs and code, developers can access data no matter where it’s stored. This quick mobility of data accelerates the CI/CD pipeline, enabling new features to be brought to market faster than competitors. 

DevOps needs a flexible container-native platform that easily adapts and expands to accommodate growing and scaling organizations. With ​​near-infinite capacity and performance, ionir dynamically adapts to any team’s workload across all cloud types and on-prem systems. Now, developers can freely deploy and migrate applications in any environment.

2. Data Services are Key to DevOps Agility

A data management platform that is fully automated and microservices-based delivers a solution that is simple, future-proof, and cloud ready. With ionir, customers no longer need to deal with the complexity of managing legacy storage platforms. The ionir platform is fully automated from setup and deployment, scaling, to management of data. With high-performance storage for databases, common data management, and protection workflows across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments, the ionir platform adds agility and speed to a DevOps environment. 

ionir’s software-defined data services platform enables users such as developers, platform engineers, and operations professionals to build a single data cloud for their applications across all their infrastructure. 

For instance, traditional workflows require tedious, manual work. On the contrary, the ionir Data Services Platform for Kubernetes streamlines the process through automated workflows. ionir’s automated workflows enable the team in a DevOps environment to reduce time spent on easily automated and repetitive tasks, freeing up more time to focus on the development of new features and applications to advance the business.

3. ionir Improves Data Operations and Mobility

DevOps pipelines require movement of data and artifacts between nodes of a cluster, between Kubernetes clusters within a cloud, or between clouds. ionir drives value in a DeVops environment with the ability to instantly copy and move data volumes between clusters and clouds. With data as code, users are able to access data at any location and at any point in time in 40 seconds or less regardless of the size of the volume. In fact, rapidly cloning data sets allows customers to reimagine their DevOps pipelines and accelerate pipelines by up to 500x. 

For example, say a block of data became corrupted at 5:00:01. You can instantly retrieve the data as it existed at 5:00:00, completely eradicating any corruption from the data set. Likewise, you can also instantly access and copy data to any location. 

With ionir, data wait times are reduced to seconds enabling DevOps and QA teams to focus on delivering superior experiences and more stable applications. Now, each build and test plan is up and running in seconds and more importantly in a consistent and predicted manner.

Final Thoughts

To support an effective DevOps environment, ionir’s data capabilities are seamlessly integrated into installation workflows, enabling DevOps environments to succeed. DevOps practitioners will greatly benefit from the ionir Data Services Platform for Kubernetes. Architects and developers who are responsible for building and maintaining the DevOps infrastructure and workflows can leverage ionir to accelerate the CI/CD pipeline, achieving digital transformation for the enterprise.
