Pure Storage has announced the release of Portworx Enterprise 2.8. With new integrations across Pure’s portfolio of products and services and with VMware Tanzu, customers can now use Portworx to scale their Kubernetes usage to greater levels.

With new capabilities such as dynamic storage provisioning on FlashArray and FlashBlade, and unified visibility and support via Pure1, Portworx enables containerized workloads to run across the cloud, bare metal infrastructure, Pure Storage arrays, and even competitive storage solutions.

With the latest release of Portworx Enterprise 2.8, customers get the same cloud-like experience for Kubernetes apps wherever they live, with broad Kubernetes ecosystem support.

With a Kubernetes-native software approach built to support enterprise levels of scale and resiliency, Portworx combines cloud-native storage management and data protection services with Pure Storage FlashArray and FlashBlade for seamless deployment.

With the latest Portworx release, Kubernetes cluster and volume usage metrics collected by Portworx will be sent to Pure1, providing a unified observability stack and support experience for a customer’s Kubernetes applications with Portworx in the Pure1 portal, allowing customer to see their deployments end-to-end and troubleshoot issues with Kubernetes applications.

By combining PX-Backup with FlashBlade, customers can protect their entire Kubernetes applications, including data and configuration, and benefit from FlashBlade rapid restore of up to 270 TB/hour. Pure released a Reference Architecture for this solution, which will be the first of many validated solutions.

The latest release extends Portworx support for leading Kubernetes platforms with addition of VMware Tanzu (TKG) support via the native Tanzu CSI driver.

Portworx Enterprise 2.8 will be available in June 2021.
