LINBIT NEWSLETTER

A lot has happened since we last connected.

LINBIT has added DR and support for Kubernetes; we released the
CSI plug-in for LINSTOR, as well as several demo videos
for LINBIT DR and LINSTOR.

LINBIT has been busy around the globe sharing the
news of SDS and LINSTOR. Watch the videos and find out
more about what LINBIT has been up to below.

Happy New Year, friends!

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT LINBIT

Kubernetes - CSI Plugin for LINSTOR Complete

CSI Plugin for LINSTOR Complete

This CSI plug-in allows for the use of LINSTOR volumes on Container Orchestrators that implement CSI, such as Kubernetes.

Preliminary work on the CSI plugin for LINSTOR is now complete and is capable of operating as an independent driver. CSI is a project by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation which aims to serve as an industry standard interface for container orchestration platforms. This allows storage vendors to write one storage driver and have it work across multiple platforms with little or no modification. Get the code.

LINBIT SDS Adds DR

LINBIT SDS Adds Disaster Recovery (DR) and Support for Kubernetes

To simplify administration, enhance user experience, and accelerate integration with other software, LINBIT SDS relies on the pre-existing storage management capabilities native to Linux, such as LVM and DRBD. These Linux capabilities are complemented by LINSTOR, LINBIT’s feature-rich volume management software. One supported storage tool is DRBD, the in-kernel block level data replication for Linux.

LINBIT DR & LINSTOR (Demo)

In this video Matt Kereczman from LINBIT combines components of LINBIT SDS and LINBIT to demonstrate extending an existing LINSTOR managed DRBD volume to a DR node, located in a geographically-separated datacenter via LINSTOR and DRBD Proxy.
