LINBIT SDS supports MariaDB and can create, remove, snapshot, and replicate Kubernetes storage volumes for Enterprise and Database Applications.
Beaverton, OR, July 26, 2018, LINBIT, the de facto standard in open source High Availability (HA), Disaster Recovery (DR), Software-Defined Storage (SDS), and the force behind the renowned DRBD® open-source software, today announced the general availability of LINBIT SDS for Kubernetes, which includes container-native persistent block storage for stateful applications and support for the MariaDB database. LINBIT SDS is an open-source storage management solution that relies on LINSTOR, a feature-rich volume and configuration management software, and DRBD, the robust in-kernel data replication software. LINSTOR takes advantage of DRBD, a part of the Linux kernel for nearly a decade, to deliver fast and reliable data replication.
“For IT organizations and engineering teams using Kubernetes, LINBIT SDS is a great way to save time and money,” said Brian Hellman COO of LINBIT. “Before considering proprietary vendors, take a look at what your Operating System can do natively.”
