Diamanti Announces Networking and Storage Support for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform
Diamanti, creators of the industry's first turnkey networking and storage appliance that brings rapid time-to-market and guaranteed performance to Linux containers, today at Red Hat Summit announced support for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, powered by Kubernetes orchestration and Docker-formatted Linux containers. The Diamanti and Red Hat solution allows developers to build modern, containerized applications ready for production performance requirements, while enabling operators to quickly and reliably deploy applications to perform at scale.

"Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is optimized for delivering applications and services, allowing our customers to continue innovating and differentiating in the marketplace," said Julio Tapia, director, OpenShift ecosystem, Red Hat. "Together with Diamanti, we believe that convenience and predictability in application development and IT operations is fundamental for enterprises creating new classes of applications. The combined Diamanti solution with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform provides users with an open platform to more quickly and easily build, deploy, and scale containerized applications."

Diamanti meets demanding DevOps requirements of modern, containerized applications with a turnkey appliance that enables easy network interoperability with quality-of-service, plus persistent container storage deployment in seconds with low latency, guaranteed performance. Through contributions to the open-source Kubernetes project, Diamanti integrates with the Red Hat developer workflow so that users can specify their container networks, define storage volumes, and consistently deploy applications throughout their lifecycles. Users specify network and storage requirements with vendor-agnostic options in their application's pod definition files. Upon deploying pods via Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Diamanti assists in container scheduling for optimal placement and activates IO guarantees of network and storage performance in real time.

"Container technology is quickly becoming the norm for modern enterprise applications that run in a distributed, scale-out architecture," said Mark Balch, vice president of products at Diamanti. "Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform helps to streamline the application lifecycle for containers. As enterprises begin to look at how to best operate modern, containerized applications in production, Diamanti offers tremendous value over infrastructure built for legacy applications. Diamanti provides a solution that is plug-and-play with existing networks, works with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, and delivers performance in real time. We're excited to be working with Red Hat, together meeting the needs of users as they transform their businesses with modern, containerized applications."
