Continental Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Yesterday, Atlantis Computing announced a new converged platform for managing infrastructure and containers,
which combines Rancher with their award-winning USX software-defined
turnkey solution will make it easier for IT organizations to deliver
containers as a service to their developers with enterprise-grade
storage, without losing sight of the very real, bottom-line benefits
that come from optimizing virtualized infrastructure. This solution will
be available as a tech preview in early November.

able to provision a new compute host and automatically create
USX-powered container persistent storage for containers on those hosts; moreover,
that storage takes advantage of Atlantis’ USX technology for data
reduction and near-instantaneous IO for containers running in memory.
The result: containerized applications that can run, scale, and update
that much faster, with lower data center costs, and straightforward
management for organizations building and overseeing them. Atlantis’
Hugo Phan does an excellent job of diving into the technical details of
the platform here.
Using containers to make applications portable across diverse
infrastructure requires more than just a standardized unit for shipping
code: it needs networking, persistent storage, orchestration, image
registries, orchestration, access controls, and more. This preview from
Atlantis takes the original premise of \“run anywhere\” a step further,
and we are thrilled that they’re using Rancher to help deliver this
solution. Atlantis will make the preview of this solution available for the community,
and we will be joining them for a webinar on November 10, at 9 AM PST.
We’re excited to get your feedback!
Webinar: Enterprise Data Services for Containers with Atlantis +
Delivering intelligent storage for Docker containers is still in its
infancy, but Atlantis and Rancher are previewing a enterprise-class
solution for container management, data services, and persistent
storage. Join us and learn how we can scale container- and
application-defined storage on any infrastructure.
