Virtualization transition is now made easier through Portworx thanks to Pure Storage and Red Hat OpenShift

Pure Storage and Red Hat have recently enhanced Portworx by Pure Storage on Red Hat OpenShift which will enable a smoother integration and easier transition to modern virtualization dedicated to enterprises.

Big corps are increasingly adopting containers for faster and more scalable application deployment but many still heavily rely on traditional applications running in VMs, making support for both platforms complex and costly, not to mention re-architecting VM-based applications for modern frameworks can also impede development and operations.

A recent survey revealed that over 81% of data management stakeholders plan to modernize or migrate VM workloads to cloud-native solutions, with 79% prioritizing operational simplicity.

To address this demand, the latest optimization of Portworx by Pure Storage and Red Hat OpenShift, through Red Hat OpenShift Virtualization, supports both containers and VMs that will make everything right from seamless modernization, to smoothing out operations and cutting costs in the long run.

Ultimately, they want Red Hat OpenShift customers to have a wide range of access in one place through enterprise-grade data management and seamless VM migration to then use the platform for building ,testing, and deployment with ntegrated support for storage and lifecycle management.

The key features and benefits include:

  • Faster time to market with enhanced operational efficiency: Enterprises can improve time to production with self-service options for development teams to quickly migrate VMs and apply cloud-native operational and development practices to VMs, accelerating time to value
  • Simplified and consistent development and management: Portworx and Red Hat provide unified management for VMs and containers to get virtualization admins and platform engineering teams in line with each other
  • Flexibility to deploy VMs and containers: Enterprises can deploy VMs and containers across on-premises, cloud, hybrid, or multi-cloud infrastructures, with consistent storage and data services
