Using containers? Don't forget the data.

Containers make apps portable so they build, ship, and run anywhere. But what about your data? When moving applications across environments, data should move with them. How do you support DevOps without overburdening IT teams?

Stateful apps are key to enterprise container strategy

DevOps, assisted by containers, drive faster application delivery and iteration, helping to continuously release and improve products and services for business agility. IDC explains the role of stateful applications in enterprise containers strategy.

Make data as portable as containers

Apps and data should go together between on-premises and your favorite clouds, across container platforms, and operating system environments. With the right persistent storage, data can be as easy to move and manage as containers themselves.

No storage expertise required

HPE Persistent Storage Platform offers cloud-ready flash arrays you control right from Docker, Kubernetes, and Mesosphere. Lift and shift data with applications across a hybrid IT environment, speed up DevOps with easy self-service automation for application development and IT teams, and simplify container operations by bringing predictive flash to container environments.

Use multiple container platforms

HPE offers industry leading integration to Docker, Mesosphere, and Kubernetes command lines, tools, and APIs.

Multicloud on-ramp

Move data between on-premises HPE arrays and AWS or Azure using HPE Cloud Volumes.

On-board data easily

Instantly convert legacy volumes to persistent volumes when containerizing applications. 

Simplify container operations

Get consistent flash performance, six nines guaranteed, from HPE InfoSight with HPE storage arrays. 

No waiting

Create hundreds of production data copies in minutes to speed up dev, QA, and staging in continuous integration / continuous deployment (ci/cd).

Powerful storage for CaaS

Only HPE lets ops teams set Quality of Service (QoS) IOPS and capacity limits for tenants, while letting developers choose a container type: Linux or Windows.
