What does Robin Hyper-Converged Kubernetes do for your Applications and the underlying Infrastructure?

Leverages Container Technology for Kubernetes-based Stateful Applications

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.

Brings VM-Like Semantics

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.

Only Robin Solves Fundamental Kubernetes Stateful Challenges and other Hard Problems

ROBIN solves the fundamental Kubernetes challenges of running big data and databases in Kubernetes and enables the deployment of an agile, and flexible infrastructure for your Enterprise Applications. Hyper-Converged Kubernetes components include Application management layer, built-in storage, built-in networking and Kubernetes extended for big data.

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).

Consolidates your Applications and Infrastructure Resources

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.
