Summary

Portworx is one of the few vendors that has specifically designed a storage solution for Kubernetes environments. This enabled the company to build a very compelling platform with features aimed at simplifying data protection, security, and infrastructure management for high demanding and mission-critical Kubernetes infrastructures.

Target Market Categories and Deployment Types

Table 1: Vendor Positioning

Market positioning: Portworx Enterprise has a feature set and characteristics that are perfectly tailored for large enterprises and service providers. It is a sophisticated solution that is aimed at supporting complex Kubernetes infrastructures, no matter if they are deployed on-premises, in the cloud, or a hybrid fashion. In these scenarios, Return on Investment (ROI) is very positive, and the impact on the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) can be very high as well.

Deployment model: Portworx Enterprise is a cloud-native solution. It is installed directly in the Kubernetes cluster and can manage data protection directly by taking control of storage devices available in the worker nodes, or can take advantage of existing enterprise shared storage systems.
