DaoCloud Announces Strategic Partnership to Sell Leading-Edge Portworx Container Data Services Technology in China

Partnership Addresses Customer Challenges Around Stateful Container Deployments; Portworx Becomes Critical Element in DaoCloud DCE-X Enterprise Cloud Platform-As-A-Service Stack

LOS ALTOS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/17 -- Portworx, the leading provider of container data services for DevOps, today announced its first international strategic partnership with DaoCloud, a top cloud-native technology vendor focused on guiding enterprises through digital transformations. Through an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement, DaoCloud is partnering with Portworx to offer its leading-edge container data services technology to the China market for the first time. DaoCloud will package Portworx as part of DCE-X, its cloud-based platform-as-a-service offering for enterprise customers. DaoCloud will translate the Portworx GUI and documentation to Chinese, and promote and sell Portworx nationwide. Portworx will also partner with DaoCloud to establish the Portworx Shanghai Support Center, which will work with Portworx's U.S. office to provide 24/7 support for global customers.

DaoCloud's 100,000+ users are among the most innovative in China, and include early adopters of container technology. However, these users face numerous challenges around persistent storage as they take containers from dev/test into production, including persistence, high availability, data automation, support for multiple data stores, infrastructure, and security.

Portworx provides a solution to these challenges -- acting as a single data management layer for any stateful containerized application with any scheduler on any infrastructure. Portworx also offers industry-first, enterprise-class features such as persistence, encryption, multi-cloud replication, cloud-agnostic snapshots, and global namespace. Through DaoCloud, Portworx is now signed with several major Chinese customers including global 2000 companies such as SAIC Motors and Dongfeng Motors.

"As Chinese enterprises advance their digital transformations, they have a critical need for DevOps and microservices-focused storage solutions in their cloud-native datacenters," said Qiyan Chen, co-founder and CEO of DaoCloud. "The strategic partnership between DaoCloud and Portworx is the ideal solution for these cutting-edge customers."

DaoCloud's digital transformation services leverage innovative technologies, products, solutions, and consulting practices, covering the entire application lifecycle from development to production in public, private, and hybrid environments.

"DaoCloud is one of the leading platform-as-a-service providers in China, and we're pleased that Portworx PX-Enterprise is a critical part of DaoCloud's DCE-X stack, enabling stateful workloads as DaoCloud leads Chinese enterprises through digital transformation," said Murli Thirumale, co-founder and CEO of Portworx. "The Chinese DevOps market is growing at a rapid pace, and we look forward to working with DaoCloud to help solve container challenges and advance container adoption and innovation."

DaoCloud has been building a leading ecosystem in China with communities and partners. It has actively organized and sponsored local meetups and events around Docker, and in 2016 DaoCloud and Lenovo established the strategic partnership in China. DaoCloud is headquartered in Yangpu District, Shanghai City, China, and also has branch offices in Beijing, Wuhan, and Shenzhen covering the northern, middle, and southern regions of China respectively. DaoCloud plans to expand its ecosystem with top partners around the world.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source – without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It’s no longer a “nice-to-have” but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
