Atlantis Previews Portable & Persistent Containers with Rancher Labs!


As containers continue to be explored and IT is being challenged to cloud enable their applications, organizations are finding new and exciting ways to use them to solve challenges in the enterprise that traditional virtualization architecture has struggled to fulfil.  Containers were originally conceptualized under the context of being ephemeral, voiding any requirements for architecting infrastructure for persistence.  However, as organizations found ways to apply the benefits of containers to a variety of other workloads and in some cases production, persistence suddenly became a challenge that needed to be solved.  Like most technology, when containers began being used for a different purpose than its original intent, a new set of challenges and problems emerged.

When we first began looking at containers, it became evident that the container architecture is quite symmetrical to how a non-persistent virtual desktop solution is constructed.  While the desktop workload itself may be non-persistent, having access to and the ability to save persistent data is pivotal to supporting VDI.  This requirement is also beginning to take shape with containers as it matures to supporting and delivering persistent type workloads.  Delivering persistent storage isn’t as simple as just presenting a data store that is non-volatile.  When you add the requirement of persistence an entire new set of challenges associated with delivering persistent storage emerge, such as making sure it’s protected and resilient while also providing enough performance and capacity.  As container adoption continues to grow and the workloads get more sophisticated, these demands on infrastructure and storage will only increase with the requirement to deliver them on-prem or in the cloud.
