The market for cloud native storage is growing at a rapid pace. As enterprises embrace Kubernetes as the preferred container orchestrator and the platform vendors build hybrid cloud offerings based on Kubernetes, the demand for container native storage offerings increases.

Cloud Native Storage-To understand the market evolution and the need for container native storage platforms, refer to my previous article.

Here are 5 startups that are making a difference with their cloud native storage products:

1. Maya Data

Maya Data is the founder of an open source storage project called OpenEBSwhich delivers container attached storage to microservices-based applications. The volumes provisioned by OpenEBS run in containers that live close to the services that consume data. Each volume has a dedicated storage controller that increases the agility and granularity of persistent storage operations of the stateful applications.

OpenEBS adds an abstraction layer that makes cloud native applications portable. Data is always written to the OpenEBS layer which acts as the data abstraction layer. This architecture enables the portability of applications by avoiding vendor lock-in.

OpenEBS supports operations that include synchronous replication, snapshots and clones, backup and restore along with the integration with Prometheus for tracking metrics.

Maya Data provides commercial support for services for implementing OpenEBS. The MayaData Data Agility Platform (MDAP) is available in SaaS and on-premises versions.

Recently, OpenEBS was accepted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as the Sandbox Project which is an entry point for early-stage projects.

2. Portworx

Portworx is a Bay Area-based startup that solves the five most common problems DevOps teams encounter when running stateful services in production: persistence, high availability, data automation, security, and support for multiple data stores and infrastructure.

Portworx aims to bring traditional storage operations to cloud native environments. The platform is tightly integrated with Kubernetes to deliver familiar operations and workflow to DevOps teams. The storage platform supports cloud-based block storage services such as Amazon EBS, Google Compute Engine Persistent Disks, Azure Storage along with traditional NAS and SAN offerings. Portworx creates container native storage pool from the underlying sources which decouples applications from proprietary implementations.
