IBM and Robin Systems Announce a Joint Solution for the Containerized IBM Db2 Warehouse on Robin Hyper-Converged Kubernetes Platform

Robin’s unique Application-Defined Infrastructure approach enables a true load-and-go data warehouse in the hybrid cloud

SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 20, 2018 – Robin Systems, the only container-based Application-Defined Infrastructure (ADI) software provider, today announced general availability of IBM Db2 Warehouse on Robin Platform. The containerized IBM Db2 Warehouse solution atop Robin Platform simplifies packaging and distribution to facilitate a true load-and-go data warehouse in a hybrid cloud architecture.

Robin Platform now has the broadest support of Enterprise Data Apps in the market and is the only solution that lets you share resources across multiple applications and users while guaranteeing performance isolation. Robin is also the only solution that slashes deployment, as well as management times from days to minutes. IBM® Db2 Warehouse (formerly dashDB™ Local) runs optimally using Robin Platform powered by and for container technology.  Packaging, portability and agility are built into the joint offering, showcasing how a data warehouse can be modernized and optimized by leveraging Robin’s Application-Defined Infrastructure (ADI).

“Porting and modernizing an already great analytics solution to use container technology is exciting and sets a high bar for other stateful data-heavy use cases seeking modernization options. Our experience shows cases where clients save up to 50% on the number of nodes, as well as gain significantly improved agility through blazing fast deployments down from weeks and days to minutes, all while guaranteeing performance (IOPS) in a shared multi-tenant environment” said Premal Buch, Robin systems CEO.

Robin Platform is a container-based pure software solution that sits between the application and the infrastructure and enables 1-click application workflows for the user by letting the applications auto-configure storage, compute and networking across on-premise and cloud-based environments. It has REST APIs and hooks to interface with the rest of the ecosystem and requires no changes to the applications.

“IBM® Db2 Warehouse (formerly dashDB™ Local) runs optimally using Robin Platform powered by and for container technology. Porting and modernizing an already great analytics solution to modern virtualization using containers is exciting news and is clearly encouraging for other use cases exploring options for various stateful data-defined apps.” More from the IBM Team about IBM Db2 Warehouse on Robin Platform.

The IBM® Db2 Warehouse is an ideal solution in cases where control of data must be maintained in a multitenant environment or cloud like fashion. IBM® Db2 Warehouse and its software defined architecture makes it possible to maximize the resource pool usage along with the in-memory processing capability to deliver extremely fast results as well as provide massively parallel processing (MPP) to help scale out and scale up as demand changes.

Robin Platform is perfectly poised to package and optimize IBM® Db2 Warehouse with a simplistic approach to containerize, package and optimize deployments. Immediate benefits also include fast time to market and the resultant cost savings. The ability to define once and run anywhere comes in handy in the hybrid-cloud environment.

Robin also offers a 5-Day Free Trial Edition (FE) of it’s Enterprise Edition on AWS and a free fully featured Community Edition (CE) of its Cloud Platform for Enterprise Databases, Big-Data and NoSQL.
