ROBIN Hyper-Converged
Kubernetes Platform

for big data, Databases, and AI/ML

Robin in 2 Mins

ROBIN is the industry’s first hyper-converged Kubernetes platform for big data, databases, and AI/ML. The platform provides a self-service App-store experience for the deployment of any application, anywhere – runs on-premises in your private data center or in public-cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP) environments.

Hyper-Converged Kubernetes

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. Our approach extends Kubernetes for data-intensive applications such as Hortonworks, Cloudera, Elastic stack, RDBMS, NoSQL databases, and AI/ML apps.

Application Management Layer – Manage Applications and configure Kubernetes, Storage & Networking with Application workflows.
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, anti-affinity and isolation constraints, and tackle storage for applications that modify the Root filesystem.
Kubernetes – Run big data and databases in extended Kubernetes, eliminating limitations that restrict Kubernetes to micro-services applications.
Built-in Networking – Set networking options while deploying apps and clusters in Kubernetes and preserve IP addresses during restarts.
  • Facilitates simpler and faster roll-out of critical Enterprise IT and LoB initiatives, such as containerization, cloud-migration, cost-consolidation and developer productivity.

  • Solves the fundamental challenges of running big data and databases in Kubernetes

  • Enables the deployment of an agile, and flexible Kubernetes-based infrastructure for your Enterprise Applications.

Hyper-Converged Kubernetes Platform Benefits

ROBIN hyper-converged Kubernetes architecture brings to life a 1-Click simplicity to data-heavy Kubernetes-based apps for deployment and lifecycle management functions such as snapshot, clone, patch, upgrade, backup, restore, scale, and control QoS of the entire application. This is done with a single mouse click or REST API call independent of the size and complexity of the application.
