ROBIN Storage for OpenShift White Paper:
Manage App+Data as a Single Entity ROBIN Storage is a purpose-built container-native storage solution that brings advanced data management capabilities to Kubernetes. It is a CSI-compliant block storage solution with bare-metal performance that seamlessly integrates with Kubernetes-native administrative tooling such as Kubectl, Helm Charts, and Operators through standard APIs. ROBIN Storage is application-aware. The “Application” construct, as defined above, provides the context for all ROBIN Storage operations. All lifecycle operations are performed by treating app+data as a single entity.
For example, when you snapshot a MongoDB application, ROBIN Storage captures the entire application topology and its configuration (i.e., specs of Pod, Service, StatefulSet, Secrets, ConfigMaps, etc), and all data volumes (PersistentVolumeClaims) to create a point-in time application checkpoint.
Key Features Data Protection and Security
