The Robin Containerization Platform: Application-Centric IT infrastructure for Digital Enterprise

Robin’s Containerization Platform unveils the era of Application-Defined Data Center, enabling IT professionals to dramatically simplify application deployment and lifecycle management while guaranteeing predicted Quality of Service for databases and Big Data applications. This also enables enterprises to achieve significant CAPEX and OPEX savings via application consolidation on shared hardware. Running on a customer’s own commodity hardware, the Robin Containerization Platform software pools the computing and storage resources across servers to create a containerized agile compute layer, where applications are deployed within containers. The container-aware scale-out block storage enables modern agile application lifecycle management, including snapshot and cloning of the entire application. Robin’s application-aware infrastructure fabric controller automates and marshals the compute and storage layers, thereby making the infrastructure completely transparent to the application owners and developers.

Robin Containerization Platform helps users:

  • Virtualize databases (Oracle, NoSQL) and Big Data applications (Hadoop, Spark, Elastic Search, Kafka) with bare-metal performance
  • Increase hardware utilization by a factor of 2x-3x by consolidating performance-sensitive applications with guaranteed performance and noisy-neighbor-induced performance hiccups.
  • Reduce database licensing cost by 50 percent or more through database consolidation.
  • Boost productivity by a factor of 10x-100x for developers and DBAs, with capabilities such as 1-click cluster deployment, scale-up, and scale-out, application snapshot, clone and time travel.
