How does Robin compare with other products?
Robin vs. Kubernetes, Mesosphere, & Storage Products
- Container-aware, scale out and scale up storage
- Guaranteed, predictable performance and QoS
- Distributed (cluster-level) snapshot, cloning, and rollback
- Enterprise application and database support (Oracle) via multiple container formats (Docker & LxC)
Robin Cloud Platform (RCP) vs. Red Hat OpenShift
What does Robin do for your Applications and the underlying Infrastructure?
Robin leverages container technology to consolidate applications with complete runtime isolation. The container is a lightweight, OS-based virtualization technology that allows the creation of compartmentalized and isolated application environment on top of the standard OS.
Just as a hypervisor abstracts OS from the underlying hardware, containers help abstract applications from OS and everything underneath, leading to simplified application deployment and seamless portability across hardware and operating platforms.
Robin’s Adaptive Container technology picks the appropriate container configuration depending on the application types. Traditional applications are deployed within “system containers” to provide VM-like semantics and Robin supports the deployment of stateless microservices applications such as Docker containers.
Container technology such as docker and LXC, while designed to ship and run applications, is not sufficient by itself. To support seamless deployment and management of ALL applications (modern distributed or traditional enterprise), you need robust orchestration that integrates both – an application’s components and its underlying infrastructure (compute, network, and storage).
When used with bare-metal servers, Robin enables “zero-performance-impact” application consolidation of databases, Hadoop clusters, and other distributed applications such as Elasticsearch, resulting in significant operational efficiency gains and cost reduction.
