NetApp Flash accelerates Docker ecosystem with native storage integration

20 Jun 2016 Seattle - NetApp has integrated its flash storage portfolio, including the NetApp SolidFire SF series, All Flash FAS (AFF) and EF-Series, with the NetApp Docker Volume Plug-In (nDVP). This native Docker plug-in allows containerized applications to easily maintain state by consuming persistent storage from NetApp. This capability enables Docker developers and operators to take advantage of NetApp's robust all-flash storage and data management primitives.

According to data from RightScale's "State of the Cloud Report", 81 percent of enterprises are adopting DevOps and 38 percent plan to use Docker. The goal of achieving intuitive and persistent state for Docker is essential for provisioning storage and managing data at scale. The nDVP provides a single plug-in and unified platform that enables enterprises to use Docker volumes across all NetApp storage systems. NetApp accelerated Docker users can pick from a broad, best-in-class all-flash portfolio using block-and-file protocol solutions to best match their business requirements.

"Containers have become so critical to our customers' multi-Cloud environments", stated Val Bercovici, NetApp SolidFire CTO. "Microservices within Cloud-native applications span public, private and hybrid Cloud configurations, creating a need for consistent data management throughout that Cloud spectrum. The goal for the nDVP is to provide customers with a single, easy-to-manage plug-in that consistently supports multiple platforms: SolidFire, AFF and the EF-Series."

Additional details of the nDVP are:

  • Cross-platform storage using a single plug-in: The nDVP assists in the management of the full lifecycle of Docker volumes (create, mount/unmount, delete) on NetApp storage.
  • Composition of multiple storage platforms: Customers can run more than one copy of the nDVP simultaneously on any Docker host, each with a different configuration. This enables Docker users to easily consume storage with different characteristics and costs to match varied container requirements.
- Multiprotocol persistent storage for Docker: Because the nDVP supports NetApp SolidFire, AFF and EF-Series systems, customers can choose whether they deploy containers on NAS or SAN storage with iSCSI and NFS support. One plug-in for multiple protocols provides true deployment flexibility.
