I recently spoke at STAC Summit in London and Rene Peinthor, a LINBIT developer, was also in London for his talk at the CloudStack European User Group. A busy time all around for the team!
We recently published ‘Kubernetes High Availability for Stateful Workloads,’ showing how LINSTOR’s HA Controller for Kubernetes can lower the recovery time of Stateful workloads in Kubernetes, increasing availability and helping to maintain SLAs.
You may also be interested in reading our latest tech guide: ‘Deploy a Highly Available MariaDB Service Using LINSTOR & DRBD Reactor,’ where we show how to quickly and easily deploy a high-availability MariaDB service by using LINBIT SDS components and DRBD Reactor as a cluster manager, making your database service highly available.
In other news, I’m pleased to share that PHOENIX MEDIA has decided to replace Longhorn with LINBIT SDS. Longhorn is the SDS part of Rancher. They were not satisfied with the performance of the SDS component. However, they kept Rancher for the Kubernetes part.
Björn Kraus, PHOENIX MEDIA’s CTO, said, “Stability and I/O performance are vital to run StatefulSets like Elasticsearch or MySQL under high load. LINBIT SDS is easy to manage and outperforms our previous solution by providing almost bare-metal performance for reads and excellent write throughput with the existing NVMe / 10G hardware.”
I’m delighted with how our recent performance is being discussed in the open, recently with breaking the IOPS record with Amphere, and now this public endorsement from Björn at Pheonix Media.
Since I last wrote, the team has released the following software updates:
