Evaluating Kubernetes Data Storage

Kubernetes is now ubiquitous—across the major hyperscale and edge cloud providers, smaller independent service providers, and on-premises data centers. The Kubernetes API and associated storage protocols are no longer an optional technology, but a hard requirement for organizations looking to deploy an application to a new location. Now IT teams face the challenge of selecting and implementing a Kubernetes storage solution for persistent data—a non-trivial task given that vendors must support a common data storage layer that abstracts physical and cloud resources with a standard set of features and services for data protection, security, and enterprise data management.

In this GigaOm Analyst Insight Video, Analyst Joep Piscaer presents his research findings from a trio of GigaOm Reports: the Key Criteria Report for Evaluating Kubernetes Data Storage, the GigaOm Radar Report for Cloud-Native Kubernetes Data Storage, and the GigaOm Radar Report for Enterprise Kubernetes Data Storage. The Key Criteria report provides a detailed technology overview and decision-making framework that breaks out the key criteria, evaluation metrics, and emerging technologies that IT buyers should consider when adopting a solution. The Radar report offers in-depth competitive analysis of nearly 20 Kubernetes Data Storage solutions.
