Elastifile Showcases New Integration with Kubernetes, TensorFlow at Google Next '18

Elastifile, a pioneer of enterprise-grade, scalable file storage for the public cloud, today announced new solutions integrating the Elastifile Cloud File System with the cutting-edge Kubernetes and Tensorflow platforms. The resulting solutions augment container management and machine learning infrastructures with data persistence and elastic file services, enabling organizations to easily leverage the benefits of innovative cloud services in conjunction with their existing workflows, with no application refactoring required. Elastifile will demonstrate the new integrations at Google Cloud Next ‘18.

Elastifile, exhibiting in booth S1503, is delivering a complete storage and data management solution, designed to meet the needs of the cloud era and to ease enterprise public cloud adoption. Powered by a dynamically scalable, enterprise-grade distributed file system with intelligent object tiering, Elastifile helps enterprises with cloud integration, thus enabling organizations to leverage cloud infrastructure to achieve their IT agility and efficiency goals.

"When assessing our IT strategy, we recognized the clear value of integrating scalable public cloud resources for addressing peak demands during the final chip design phase," said Naidu Annamaneni, Vice President of Global IT at eSilicon Corporation. "With Elastifile, we can now burst chip design workflows to Google Cloud Platform with no application changes needed and while maintaining our stringent data security, performance, and availability standards. This elasticity is crucial to our business and is enabling us to complete designs more quickly and handle more simultaneous projects."

Deployable in minutes via Google Cloud Launcher, Elastifile simplifies cloud data management, migration, and sharing while delivering a full suite of enterprise storage features. With Elastifile, organizations can easily leverage modern services on Google Cloud Platform, including technologies such as Kubernetes and TensorFlow, while still maintaining compatibility with existing workflows and meeting business-critical performance and availability requirements.

"Customers are leveraging Elastifile today to shift and burst workloads to Google Cloud, but the opportunities awaiting them go much deeper than that," said Erwan Menard, CEO of Elastifile. "At Google Cloud Next ‘18, we will also demonstrate how we integrate with Kubernetes to mobilize and manage unstructured data sets...enabling cost-effective data consolidation in Google Cloud and on-demand analytics via TensorFlow."

Google Next ‘18, held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from July 24-26, allows attendees to engage with the best minds in cloud technology and learn how various industries are adapting, innovating, and growing with the cloud. Additional information about the event is available at
