To continue, here are some more fun facts around the word Robin…not about ROBIN Hyper-Converged Kubernetes Platform …

According to an article and statistical analysis done in 2014 by Time, the name Robin as a male baby name peaked in 1979 and will next peak in 2035.

In Finland, if you say Robin, people may think you’re talking about Robin Packalen – known simply as Robin. Born August 24, the Finnish singer and teen pop artist sold over 370,000 copies, making him one of the 70 best-selling artists of all-time in his country.

The USS Robin was also the name of four U.S. Navy ships that were in commission from the early to mid-1900s.

Robin is also the name of several fictional American superheroes.  Debuting as Batman’s side-kick, he was conceived by DC Comics as a vehicle to attract young readership, according to Wikipedia; garnering overwhelmingly positive critical reception, doubling the sales of the Batman related comic books.

What about Robin Charles Thicke? If you’re hip, he comes to mind as an American singer, songwriter and record producer, having worked with artists like Christina Aguilera, Nicki Minaj, Pharrell Williams, Usher, among others.

You could also think about Robin Wright, an American actress, and the former Mrs. Sean Penn. Or, the sales name of a 1985 answering machine. If you are a bird lover, Robin, of course, refers to the red-breasted North American migratory thrushes, Turdus migratorius – the state bird of Connecticut, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

But if you lay awake at night searching for a better way to virtualize and manage Big Data applications and databases at bare metal performance, and you haven’t thought of Robin Systems, you might take a look at the ROBIN Hyper-Converged Kubernetes Platform. It simplifies operational support, enables one-click deployment, provides faster-time-to-market, brings predictable performance and maximizes data center utilization.

ROBIN Hyper-Converged Kubernetes Platform is the first integrated, software-defined Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution designed with applications in mind. Robin is also the first company to bring application virtualization benefits to mission-critical enterprise applications such as databases and Big Data clusters, enabling high-performance workload consolidation with the agility and flexibility previously available only to micro applications.

Hope our fun infographic above shows just how Robin can help you drive IT efficiency and simplify application lifecycle management and make infrastructure management, as a whole, completely invisible to the user.

Here is a 2 minute video about what is Robin and of course, you can request a consultation – we would be happy to show you a demo and discuss a viable solution for your data center.
