Deploy and Manage Stateful Applications on IKS

Robin Cloud Native Storage (CNS) brings advanced storage and data management capabilities to IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service (IKS), IBM Cloud’s fully managed Kubernetes service. Robin CNS seamlessly integrates with IKS to simplify management of stateful applications..

Developers and DevOps teams can deploy Robin CNS as a standard Kubernetes operator on IKS. Robin Cloud Native Storage helps simplify data management operations such as backup/recovery, snapshots/rollback, and cloning of entire applications (data+metadata+config), providing enterprise-grade data protection. Robin also ensures stateful application portability across RKE and Kubernetes running on any cloud.

application aware

Application-aware High Performance Storage

Robin CNS is application-aware and provides bare-metal performance. All lifecycle operations are performed in the context of the entire application (data+metadata+configuration), not just the storage volumes.

data protection

Data Protection and Disaster Recovery

Protect entire applications (data+metadata+config) with snapshots and backups. Recover from user mistakes with point-in-time snapshots. For full recovery from application crashes or disaster recovery, Robin provides cloud backups.

Copy Data Management

Application Cloning for Fast Collaboration

You can collaborate across geos and teams by cloning entire application environments (data+metadata+config) in minutes. This helps free up valuable time across your Dev and QA teams by making them more productive.

multi-cloud portability

Hybrid and Multi-cloud Flexibility

Easily move complex stateful between IKS and public clouds. Moving entire apps across clouds is completely automated by Robin through running a single command.
