What is Container Storage?
Nutanix Container Storage Services delivers enterprise features such as resiliency, availability, disaster recovery, and capacity optimization for both Docker and Kubernetes leveraging Acropolis Block Storage Services (ABS).
Persistent, Resilient Storage
Persistent container volumes provide resilient storage for containerized stateful applications such as databases and web caches.
Container Plus Virtualized Applications
A common platform that supports both virtualized and containerized environments allows DevOps to pick the best technology for their needs without creating infrastructure silos.
Acropolis DSF Benefits
Persistent container volumes are backed by iSCSI block storage on the Acropolis Distributed Storage Fabric (DSF) with all the benefits of deduplication, compression, tiering and erasure coding.
Nutanix Kubernetes® External Provisioner
Nutanix provides a Kubernetes External Storage Provisioner that leverages Nutanix ABS (Acropolis Block Service) to dynamically provision, create, delete container volumes for stateful workloads.
Nutanix DVP (Docker Volume Plugin)
Nutanix provides a Docker Certified Volume Plugin that provides persistent storage for Docker Engine and Swarm Clusters. Installed on each Docker host, you can dynamically provision volumes via ABS (Acropolis Block Service).
