Robin’s Application-Defined Infrastructure (ADI) enables dynamic control of storage, compute and networking resources
SAN JOSE, Calif. – February 8th, 2018 – Robin Systems, the leading container-based Application-Defined Infrastructure (ADI) software provider, today announced that Parallel Wireless, the leader in connecting things and people at home, work, play, and in emergencies, has chosen Robin Platform to power its Big Data Analytics solution to help global Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) store, analyze, exchange, and manage data from networks, people, processes, and things in fully scalable virtualized environments.
The increasing demand for virtualized infrastructure services and distributed compute management have provided immense opportunity for growth of the virtualized container as a service market with 451 Research projecting growth in application containers, from $762 million in 2016 to $2.7 billion by 2020. As containers enable packing of a lot more applications into a single physical server, major global operators are adopting this innovative approach to NFV. The benefits include faster deployment, lower costs, greater control of on-demand virtualized environments as ATT’s (NYSE: T) CTO and president of AT&T Labs indicated in SDxCentral article last spring.
“We chose Robin Platform for our Big Data Analytics solution because it was the only container-based solution that met our performance and scalability needs. When you start looking at various parts of the cellular network where you need speed, reliability and redundancy, containers deliver highly flexible programmable infrastructures. The ability to guarantee QoS per micro-service or an application is an enabler of on-demand scalable virtualized environments for real-time data mining in our Data Lake. Being able to deploy a data center on demand through containers will help global MNOs to transform their networks and will greatly benefit them with the ability to process millions of real-time events per second resulting in cellular networks being more intelligent and automated,” said Rajesh Mishra, President and CTO, Parallel Wireless.
“It is exciting to see Robin Platform expanding its footprint beyond Big Data and Database use cases and getting adopted for mission-critical NFV solutions.” said Premal Buch, CEO of Robin Systems. “Our work with Parallel Wireless is a true example of ADI in action – they were able to deploy a new use case on Robin platform out-of-the-box and show an App-store like experience and guarantee application QOS without requiring any infrastructure or application tuning.”
Robin Platform is a Container-based pure software solution that sits between the application and the infrastructure and enables 1-click application workflows for the user by letting the applications auto-configure storage, compute and networking across on-premise and cloud based environments. It has REST APIs and hooks to interface with the rest of the ecosystem and requires no changes to the applications. Robin also offers a Free and Fully Featured Community Edition (CE) of its Cloud Platform for Enterprise Databases, Big-Data and NoSQL. Register for your copy with up to 5 nodes.
Running complex distributed and clustered apps spanning many compute and storage nodes and terabytes or petabytes of data in a larger scoped NFV architecture requires a holistic application-level view to optimize meta-data primitives across the entire application IO path. Robin’s Application-Defined Infrastructure (ADI) fits very well into the NFV layer, helping to also expand from one location to another, on-premises or in the cloud.
About Robin Systems
Robin is transforming the way enterprise applications drive the infrastructure by bringing together purposely built container-aware block storage with application-aware fabric into the cloud (private and/or public). This demonstrates unique benefits to distributed, clustered and stateful applications including Big-Data and Databases. With a team that includes industry veterans from leading enterprise technology companies such as NetApp, Oracle, and Veritas, Robin seeks to disrupt the $20 billion-plus virtualization market with its container-based compute and storage platform software that delivers better performance higher consolidation and a much simpler application lifecycle management than traditional hypervisor-based virtualization. Founded in 2013, the San Jose California-based company has raised more than $27 million in venture funding from leading investors such as Clear Ventures, DN Capital, USAA, and Hasso Plattner Ventures.
