LINBIT SDS Adds Disaster Recovery and Support for Kubernetes

LINBIT enhances open source software-defined storage (SDS) by providing disaster recovery (DR) replication for critical data. LINBIT SDS is an enterprise-class storage management solution designed for cloud and container storage workloads.

To simplify administration, enhance user experience, and accelerate integration with other software, LINBIT SDS relies on the pre-existing storage management capabilities native to Linux, such as LVM and DRBD. These capabilities are complemented by LINSTOR, a feature-rich volume management software. One supported storage tool is DRBD, the in-kernel block level data-replication for Linux. By announcing support for DRBD Proxy, LINBIT extends replication to disaster recovery scenarios since DRBD Proxy enables fast and reliable data replication over any distance by resolving network communications and handling data access latencies.

"LINBIT SDS is rapidly becoming the reliable, high performance, and economical choice for enterprise and cloud workloads," said Brian Hellman COO of LINBIT. "With simplified support for DR, LINBIT SDS is surpassing the costly and complex proprietary cloud storage solutions."

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 volume management, which simplifies tasks such as adding, removing, or replicating storage volumes.

The Linux based SDS solution works with the leading cloud projects Kubernetes, OpenStack, and OpenNebula, as well as a range of virtualization platforms, and as a stand-alone product. Learn more about how the software works by watching a short video-demo here:
