LINBIT SDS For Kubernetes Is Fast & Reliable

LINBIT SDS for Kubernetes

In July 2018, LINBIT announced the general availability of LINBIT SDS for Kubernetes. It included container-native persistent block storage for stateful applications and support for the MariaDB database. LINBIT SDS supports MariaDB and can create, remove, snapshot, and replicate Kubernetes storage volumes for Enterprise and Database Applications.

LINBIT SDS is an open-source storage management solution that relies on LINSTOR, a feature-rich volume and configuration management software. Also, DRBD, which is 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.

The Benefits of LINBIT SDS

Kubernetes is the industry’s most popular container orchestration tool in scale-out, elastic, or cloud environments. Therefore, many enterprise customers use MariaDB: a leading open-source relational database management system.

Kubernetes users can now easily run database applications inside containers. It relies on fast Linux block storage for application performance, data resilience, and service availability. “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. “Therefore, before considering proprietary vendors, take a look at what your Operating System can do natively.”

Overall, LINBIT SDS provides a host of capabilities to manage persistent block storage for Kubernetes environments. It supports logical volume management (LVM) snapshots, which enhance application availability while minimizing data loss; thin provisioning, which improves efficient resource utilization in virtualized environments; and configuration management, which simplifies tasks such as adding, removing, or replicating storage volumes.
