Rakuten Symphony, Inc., announced it has partnered with Google Cloud to provide a persistent storage solution for Google Distributed Cloud offerings. The persistent storage solution offers high-availability, data resiliency and security that will enable customers to migrate their stateful workloads to containers seamlessly and transform their edge deployments.
Customers told us they want to leverage GDC’s Anthos capabilities to manage container-based deployments at scale to modernize their on-premises and edge infrastructure. They also want to be able to run modern and container-based applications along with VM-based and stateful applications without having to modify them.
The persistent storage solution features Rakuten Symphony’s Symcloud™ platform – a leading KUBERNETES® data management and software-defined storage [SDS] platform for enterprise applications and operator-led 5G Edge solutions – and will be offered through Google Cloud Marketplace, making it easy for customers to do business with one single account. This persistent storage offering is extremely efficient, easy to deploy and manage at scale.
“Managing container-based deployments at scale is a top-of-mind business priority for organizations across industries today,” said Dai Vu, Managing Director, Marketplace & ISV GTM Programs, GoogleCloud. “With Rakuten Symphony’s Symcloud solution now available on Google Cloud Marketplace, customers will be able to migrate their stateful workloads to containers seamlessly and transform their edge deployments.”
One of the additional key benefits for customers is that Symcloud SDS releases will be aligned with GDC’s Anthos releases, enabling customers to upgrade both at the same time. In addition, there will be one single line for any technical support.
“We are excited to partner with Google Cloud on this solution for persistent software-defined storage,” remarked Partha Seetala, President of Cloud Business Unit, Rakuten Symphony. “Our solution will enable customers to modernize their infrastructure with ease, while providing high availability, data resiliency and security. We are confident that this solution will be a game-changer for not only our existing customers as well as GDC’s Anthos users, but also for new users who are looking to leverage the tremendous potential of cloud-native SDS.”
