Robin Systems Honored as Gold Winner in 8th Annual 2016 Golden Bridge Awards
Recognized for Robin Containerization Platform, Wins in ‘Technology Innovations for Information Technology Software’ Category
SAN JOSE, Calif., August 3, 2016 – Robin SystemsTM, the first Application-Defined Data Center software company, announced today it was named a Gold winner in the Golden Bridge Awards® in the category of “Technology Innovations for Information Technology Software.”
“Enterprises today live in the ‘Age of Applications,’ and Robin is working hard to maximize the benefit companies get from the applications they rely on,” said Chief Executive Officer Premal Buch of Robin. “This recognition shows we continue on the right track as our Containerization Platform simplifies developers’ lives and addresses IT ops concerns around performance, data protection and security.”
This recognition adds to the awards Robin has received already in 2016, including the Red Herring Top 100, the Stevie Awards, and Network Product Guide’s “Start Up of the Year.”
Robin’s Containerization Platform makes possible the Application-Defined Data Center, enabling IT professionals to dramatically simplify application deployment and lifecycle management while guaranteeing predicted Quality of Service. 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:
- Increase hardware utilization by a factor of 2x-3x by consolidating Big Data clusters such as Hadoop, Cassandra, Hbase and Kafka, without compromising application performance or QoS predictability.
- Reduce database licensing cost by 50 percent or more through database consolidation.
- Eliminate unpredictable application performance with industry’s first “Application-to-Spindle” QoS guarantee.
- 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.
