StorageOS Releases Public Beta of its Persistent Storage Solution for Docker Users
LONDON and AUSTIN, Texas, April 19, 2017 -- StorageOS, a software start-up solving the problems of enterprise storage for Docker infrastructure, today announced the availability of the public beta release of its software storage solution. StorageOS is a software-based, policy driven, distributed storage platform designed and built by a team of architects, engineers and developers from major financial services organizations to solve the real-world problems they faced in their former jobs.
Following private beta testing with trial users in media and financial services industries, StorageOS is publishing its public beta release of the software free to developers on the Docker Store. StorageOS has recently achieved Docker Certified status* for its managed volume plugin and is available on the Docker Store at https://store.docker.com/plugins/storageos. The software enables users to benefit from high performance, highly available persistent storage. Users get started by simply deploying a 40MB container on 64-bit Linux.
The StorageOS beta software has no hardware or kernel dependencies and can be installed in the cloud, in VMs, or bare metal with a single command. StorageOS is ideal for developers wanting to deploy highly available databases in containerized apps within seconds; delivering a simple to use interface that is tightly integrated with Docker, making it easy for developers to deploy enterprise storage for their applications wherever it is needed.
“Containers are now being used for applications beyond app development and testing, making them more flexible than other technologies. Using containers for production is becoming more prevalent and the market will be worth $2.7 billion by 2020,” commented Deni Connor, founding analyst for SSG-NOW.
“Containers have made app deployment lightweight and portable,” explained Chris Brandon, CEO at StorageOS. “We think storage should be just as reliable and flexible. StorageOS addresses one of the key stumbling blocks to taking containers into enterprise production: persistent storage. We expect our container storage solution to enhance the ability of developers to build stateful containerized apps.”
Rumi Contractor, president and chief operating officer of IT solutions provider Quinnox, said, “The StorageOS solution is the first I’ve seen that provides a persistent, cloud-native storage platform that helps make applications portable and secure without hardware or cloud provider lock-in.”
The StorageOS public beta is available now for developers on the Docker Store, providing:
- High availability, high performance, persistent block storage
- Access to storage volumes through Docker and Kubernetes plugins
- Policy driven management of storage features
- Management via the RESTful API, CLI or GUI

*The Docker Certification Program is designed for both technology partners and enterprise customers to recognize Containers and Plugins that excel in quality, collaborative support and compliance. Docker Certification is aligned to the available Docker EE infrastructure and gives enterprises a trusted way to run more technology in containers with support from both Docker and the publisher. Customers can quickly identify the Certified Containers and Plugins with visible badges and be confident that they were built with best practices, tested to operate smoothly on Docker EE.
