NexentaEdge DevOps Edition is now available “FREE” for download from Docker hub, providing DevOps teams enterprise grade scale-out storage optimized to support and protect containerized applications and their data

Nexenta (@Nexenta(link is external)), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced a DevOps Edition of its award-winning scale-out block, file and object storage platform, NexentaEdge. NexentaEdge DevOps Edition(link is external) is a high performance storage solution tailored for simply scalable on-premise container-converged infrastructure.

“The need for scalable and persistent storage for container environments has grown rapidly in the past year,” said Henry Baltazar, Research Director of Storage, 451 Research. “The NexentaEdge DevOps Edition aims to provide early adopters with a free multiprotocol storage platform with enterprise features such as error correction, cluster wide inline deduplication, snapshots and load balancing which early adopters can use to develop next generation applications with the agility and flexibility of containers.”

The rapid containerization of applications old and new via Docker and Kubernetes is powering the need for purpose-built on-premise infrastructure to efficiently run and support them.  Similar to how hyper-converged platforms efficiently combine storage, network and compute to provide a simply scalable foundation for hypervisors and virtual machines, Nexenta has identified the need for container-converged infrastructure, optimized to support and protect containerized applications and their data on scale-out clusters of industry standard servers.

The NexentaEdge DevOps Edition is purpose-built to deliver:

  • Reliable scale-out infrastructure for containerized applications, providing all necessary storage, networking and compute services
  • A software-defined platform capable of being deployed on a wide range of industry standard servers
  • High-performance, multi-protocol storage services for container images and the applications they run, including block, file and object protocols
  • Fully integrated with standard container management frameworks like Docker Swarm, Docker Unified Control Plane, and Kubernetes
  • Container deployment – runs as containers and managed as containers through standard tools

NexentaEdge DevOps Edition nodes are deployed as containers on physical or virtual hosts, pooling all their storage capacity and presenting it as native block devices, NFS shares, or S3 objects to containerized applications running on the same servers.  All storage services are managed through standard Docker tools, for greater agility and scalability.  NexentaEdge DevOps Edition incorporates Docker Volume plug-in to automatically provision storage for new applications.

NexentaEdge DevOps Edition provides the latest advanced storage features of NexentaEdge to containerized applications running on the same hosts. Its patented Cloud Copy on Write data layer provides self-healing error corrections, automatic load balancing, unlimited space optimized volume, file and object snapshots, as well as inline cluster wide deduplication and compression for ultimate storage efficiency.

Container-converged infrastructure powered by NexentaEdge DevOps Edition is ideal to simply deploy, run and protect stateful containerized applications such as databases like MySQL, MongoDB, or scale-out analytics tools like Hadoop and Cassandra.

“The release of NexentaEdge DevOps Edition is an important milestone, enabling the deployment of container-converged solutions in minutes using standard DevOps tools,” said Dmitry Yusupov, Co-Founder at Nexenta. “NexentaEdge DevOps Edition combines powerful enterprise class storage functionality with application container frameworks as the first true container-converged software defined solution. We’re excited to make this available free charge to DevOps teams looking to run stateful containers on any scale-out cluster of x86 servers.”

Pricing and Availability

NexentaEdge DevOps Edition, Baltika Release is available free of charge on Docker Hub(link is external) and GitHub(link is external). It can be deployed as a container-converged infrastructure on clusters of up to 3 nodes and used to store up to 16TB of data. Nexenta welcomes your feedback to this early access functionality which will be adapted to future releases of the Enterprise solution.
