Why Stateful Applications need a Cloud Native Storage Stack

Kubernetes solves Orchestration and Lifecycle Management for stateless Apps

Always on

Data should always be available even if Pods, Disks and Servers fail

Simple

DevOps teams should manage  apps without becoming storage experts

But what about Storage and Data Management for your Stateful Apps?

High Performance

Predictable app performance is crucial in a shared cluster

Business Continuity

Snapshots, Clones, backups & DR are required for continuity

End-to-End Observability

Observability is critical for maintainability and operations

Rapidly deploy RAN and Core-as-a-Service

Model and reuse complete cell and core site policies. Bring up an entire location in minutes with zero-touch deployment orchestration and configuration automation that works with all the leading O-RAN vendors.

Deployed in production to run 5G, 4G RAN and packet core services on a unified infrastructure and operations platform.

Symphony Cloud Native Platform

Carrier-grade advanced networking that improves NF performance.

High-performance networking optimized for running low latency and high-throughout network functions, including RAN (DU, CU and controllers), 5G Core, UPF and others.

Support for policy-driven access to advanced infrastructure capabilities, like NUMA-aware with auto-discovery, SR-IOV, CPU cores, siblings, memory, FPGAs and GPUs, without requiring developers to write a single line of code.

Support for dual-mode IPv4/IPv6, source-based routing and overlay/underlay networking, connecting cross-cluster applications and legacy operations systems: OSS, BSS, monitoring and analytics, secure and easy.

Run stateful apps

on Kubernetes

Highest performing storage and data management for any Kubernetes on-premises or in any cloud. Automate critical operations for databases, big data, time series and message queue services in production on Kubernetes.

Highest performing application-aware storage and data management

Robin CNP provides high performance, applications-ware storage and data management for running databases, big data, messages queue, time series and other stateful apps on Kubernetes.

Solves critical day 0 and day 2 challenges associated with data and application availability, performance, resilience, security and business continuity - all natively integrated into Kubernetes and made accessible to DevOps teams without requiring them to become storage experts.
