The Portworx Enterprise platform integrates with VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition (TKGI) to provide self-service storage and data management capabilities that enable developers to be more productive while providing the security, reliability, and performance your business requires. The Portworx Enterprise platform provides dynamic storage provisioning, high availability, data security and access controls, disaster recovery, multi-cloud migrations and other critical data management capabilities for your TKGI environment. Portworx Enterprise runs on top of your vSAN or other storage systems and provides complete control of your data at the container level.

Integrates with vSAN & more

vSAN and traditional enterprise storage systems lack the container-level controls needed to run mission-critical apps on Kubernetes. Run Portworx Enterprise on top of your enterprise storage and get the best of both worlds.

Introduction to the Portworx Enterprise Platform
Portworx Overview

Portworx is the cloud-native storage company modern enterprises trust to manage data in containers. Portworx dramatically increases the reliability and security of data-rich applications running on TKGI while simultaneously reducing storage, computing, and infrastructure costs. Portworx is trusted in production by dozens of Global Fortune 2000 enterprises, including T-Mobile, GE Digital and Comcast.

More about Portworx

“One of the key components for Kubernetes offerings is the ability to persist data in our containers, and with containers, it’s tricky because you’re having to present storage through several abstraction layers. You’re having to manage it and we really are looking to put critical data into our Kubernetes environments. So, we looked for a partner that would provide us a stable performing environment and Portworx checked all those boxes. We’re very happy to have Portworx deployed in our systems.”

James Webb, T-Mobile

How It Works

Portworx provides a Helm chart interface and a Kubernetes Operator to deploy Portworx Enterprise on TKGI.

Portworx Enterprise directly addresses the challenges of running stateful services like databases and other data-rich applications on TKGI, and offers the following features across all Portworx Enterprise platform components:

PX-Store - Scalable Persistent Storage for Kubernetes
Purpose-built for containers, PX-Store provides cloud native storage for applications running in the cloud, on-premises, and in hybrid/multi-cloud environments.

PX-Store includes:

  • Container-optimized volumes with elastic scaling for no application downtime
  • High Availability across nodes, racks, and availability zones so you can failover in seconds
  • Multi-writer shared volumes across multiple containers
  • Storage-aware class-of-service (COS) and application-aware I/O tuning

PX-Security - Container data security without compromise
With PX-Security encryption and access controls, you can move securely at the speed of Kubernetes.

PX-Security includes:

  • Cluster-wide encryption
  • Container-level or Storage Class based BYOK
  • encryption
  • Role-based access control for authorization, authentication, and ownership
  • Integrates with Active Directory and LDAP

PX-Data Management - Complete control over your Kubernetes data no matter where it lives.

PX-Data Management includes:

  • Multi-cloud/multi-cluster application migrations
  • Snapshot-based backup to any cloud
  • Application-consistent snapshots

PX-DR - Data protection for mission-critical apps

PX-DR extends the data protection included in PX-Store with Zero RPO Disaster Recovery for data centers in a metropolitan area as well as continuous backups across the WAN for an even greater level of protection.

PX-DR includes:

  • Multi-site synchronous replication for Zero RPO DR across a metro area
  • Multi-site asynchronous replication for DR across a wide area network (WAN)
  • All DR policies can be set at the container-granular level

PX-Backup - What backup for Kubernetes should be

PX-Backup allows you to capture entire applications, including data, application configuration and Kubernetes objects, and move them to any backup location at the click of a button. Recover entire applications just as easily.

PX-Backup includes:

  • Continuous backups across global data centers
  • Point-and-click recovery for any Kubernetes app
  • Backup and recover cloud volumes from Amazon, Microsoft and Google
  • Fulfill your compliance and governance responsibilities with a single pane of glass for all your containerized applications

PX-Central - Centralized monitoring, metrics, and data management interface for Portworx Enterprise.

PX-Central includes:

  • Multi-cluster management UI
  • Proactive centralized monitoring
  • Cluster setup/installation
