ROBIN Hyper-Converged Kubernetes Platform Datasheet

Extend Kubernetes for data-intensive applications such as Hortonworks, Cloudera, Elastic stack, RDBMS, NoSQL, and AI/ML applications

What is ROBIN?

ROBIN is the industry’s first hyper-converged Kubernetes platform for big data, databases, and AI/ML that provides a self-service App-store experience. Hyper-converged Kubernetes is a software-defined application orchestration framework that combines containerized storage, networking, compute (Kubernetes), and the application management layer into a single system.

Robin helps enterprises achieve faster roll-out of critical IT initiatives (e.g. containerization, cloud migration, multi-cloud strategy, cost-consolidation) and LoB initiatives (e.g. AI/ML, analytics projects).

This software-only solution runs on-premises in your private data center or in public-cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP) environments and enables 1-click deployment of any big data, database or AI/ML application. ROBIN enables 1-click simplicity for lifecycle management operations such as snapshot, clone, patch, upgrade, backup, restore, scale, & QoS control of the entire application. ROBIN solves the fundamental challenges of running big data & databases in Kubernetes & enables deployment of an agile & flexible Kubernetes-based infrastructure for Enterprise Applications.

Key Benefits covered in the Datasheet

  • Leverage Kubernetes for data-heavy applications
  • Get agile, flexible Kubernetes-based infrastructure
  • Accelerate your critical Enterprise IT and LoB initiatives

Hyper-Converged Kubernetes Stack Components covered in the Datasheet

Application Management Layer – Manage Applications and configure Kubernetes, Storage & Networking with Application workflows.

Kubernetes – Run big data and databases in extended Kubernetes, eliminating limitations that restrict Kubernetes to micro-services applications.

Built-in Storage – Allocate storage while deploying an application or cluster, share storage among apps and users, get SLA guarantees when consolidating, support for data locality, affinity, antiaffinity and isolation constraints, and tackle storage for applications that modify the Root filesystem.

Built-in Networking -Set networking options while deploying apps and clusters in Kubernetes and preserve IP addresses during restarts.

Robin Hyper-Converged Kubernetes Platform Features and Benefits covered in the Datasheet



Rapid Deployment – Self-service 1-click
App-store experience.

Slash deployment and management times from weeks and hours to minutes. Deploy and manage data-heavy apps and services in Kubernetes.

Control QoS – Dynamic control QoS for every resource – CPU, Memory, Network and Storage.

Get complete visibility into the underlying infrastructure, set min and max IOPs, eliminate noisy neighbor issue, and gain performance guarantee.

Rapid clones – Clone the entire application along with its data – thick, thin, or deferred.

No performance penalties, backup data with ease, share data among users and applications, among dev, test, and prod, with no additional storage.

Application Snapshots – Take unlimited full application cluster snapshots, which include application configuration + data

Restore or refresh a cluster to any point-in-time using snapshots. Roll back easily with 1-click to the last snapshot in case of data corruption.

Scale – Decouple compute and storage,
scale independently.

Scale out – add nodes. Scale up – increase CPU, Memory and IOPs.

High Availability – No single point of failure – get a reliable crossover and detect failures.

Get automatic App-aware data failover for complex distributed applications on bare metal – ROBIN is the ONLY product to provide HA for apps that persist state inside Docker images.

Upgrade – Automated rolling upgrade of application containers that is integrated with
CI/CD pipeline.

Safe-Upgrade technology guarantees that failed upgrades can be rolled back without disrupting the application.
