Robin System in Forbes ‘Top Nine Vendor Highlights From KubeCon’
ROBIN also extends Kubernetes to stateful applications by providing self-service provisioning and management for Kubernetes-based applications. It consolidates big data workloads without compromising performance – essential to any enterprise looking to migrate such workloads to the cloud.
In fact, the combination of ROBIN and Kubernetes is especially useful for big data platforms like Hadoop. By default, the Hadoop Distributed File System maintains three copies of all data for resiliency – but running Hadoop on a traditional virtualized environment risks having more than one such copy on the same physical server, thus increasing the chances of data loss. ROBIN solves this problem cloud natively, essentially simplifying the running of stateful applications on Kubernetes, while lowering the risks inherent in alternative approaches to running such applications.
