Preview version of IOMesh, a cloud-native storage product specifically designed and developed for Kubernetes, was released today. Committed to accelerating the containerization journey of stateful applications such as databases, IOMesh possesses cloud-native characteristics including containerized deployment, automatic operation, declarative APIs, and demonstrates excellent performance: in TPC-C MySQL test under the same hardware conditions and test parameters, IOMesh achieved TPS 2.81 times that of Portworx.
Leading hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) provider SmartX announced its latest high-performance, low-latency HCI solution and SmartX Halo P series appliance built with SmartX’s core software SMTX OS and Intel® Optane™ persistent memory (PMEM). For the first time in the industry, SmartX has…
SmartX announced that the Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver of its distributed storage platform SMTX ZBS has been added on Kubernetes CSI production drivers list so as to integrate block storage system with Kubernetes containerized environment. Enterprise users can not only leverage SMTX ZBS to build private cloud and hyper-converged infrastructure system, but also introduce persistent storage into stateful applications on Kubernetes.
A recent joint lab testing by SmartX and Intel finds out that SMTX OS, core software of SmartX, combined with Intel 2nd Gen Xeon Scalable Processors and Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X can create a hyperconverged infrastructure that produces significant system performance gains and reduces the latency for low IO queue depth, mission-critical workloads such as Oracle Database.
