Robin Cloud Native Storage offers Red Hat OpenShift customers the flexibility to pay for hourly usage on Red Hat Marketplace
SAN JOSE, Calif. — April 13, 2021 — Robin.io, the leader in Kubernetes storage and data management, today announced the availability of the pay-as-you-go pricing model for Robin Cloud Native Storage (CNS) on Red Hat Marketplace. Robin.io customers can now pay for hourly usage of Robin CNS when purchased on Red Hat Marketplace, giving them the flexibility to tie their project budgeting to consumption, rather than commit to fixed pricing up front.
Red Hat Marketplace is an open cloud marketplace that makes it easier to discover and access certified software for container-based environments across the hybrid cloud. Customers can find software solutions that have been tested and certified for Red Hat OpenShift and deploy with improved confidence.
Robin CNS is available on Red Hat Marketplace, here: https://marketplace.redhat.com/en-us/products/robin-storage/pricing
Robin CNS is a purpose-built, container-native storage solution designed to bring advanced data management capabilities to OpenShift. It is a high performance storage solution that installs natively on OpenShift and provides block and file storage for databases, data analytics, and AI/ML applications. Robin CNS was engineered to simplify storage and data management to enable developers to manage stateful applications.
“The flexibility to pay for hourly consumption of Robin CNS provides Red Hat Marketplace customers the ability to quickly deploy our industry-leading storage solution for ephemeral workloads.” said Ankur Desai, director of product, Robin.io, “Customers can now pay only for the hourly usage of Robin CNS when they run ephemeral workloads such as ETL processing, AI/ML data preprocessing and ad-hoc data analysis on Red Hat OpenShift. This process can help our users with flexible licensing terms that can reduce costs and encourage experimentation with new features and innovation.”
“With partners like Robin.io, we’re evolving Red Hat Marketplace to meet the needs of our customers,” said Kelly Hartman, vice president, ecosystem and business development, IBM Cloud and Cognitive Software. “We launched the pay-as-you-go pricing model on Red Hat Marketplace to allow the developer community to tap into the benefits of Red Hat OpenShift in a cost-efficient way.”
