Persistent Storage for Containers

Solutions that enable container speed, portability, and agility for traditional enterprise applications and data.

HPE Nimble Storage Solution Brief

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?

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
