The Need For Data Management
Stateful applications such as PostgreSQL, MySQL, MongoDB, Elastic Stack, Kafka, and MariaDB
require advanced data management capabilities in order to:
- Release products on schedule: Automated lifecycle management for app+data (not just the
storage) is required to save valuable time at each stage of the lifecycle. Multiple teams (Dev/
Test/Ops) need a mechanism to collaborate without procedural delays.
- Recover from system failures: App+data protection capabilities such as point-in-time
snapshots, backup, and restore are required to recover from system failures and user errors.
- Avoid infrastructure lock-in: The ability to migrate from on-prem to cloud and vice versa, and
among the public clouds is needed to avoid infrastructure lock-in.
- Deliver predictable performance: To guarantee QoS and to ensure high priority applications
do not miss SLAs, you need the ability to set IOPS limits per app.
- Eliminate security vulnerabilities: Enterprise-grade security is required with authentication and
encryption to ensure your data is safe.
