New Pure Service Orchestrator Demo

You may want to make this full screen to see all the CLI glory.

What you will see in this demo is the initial install of Pure Service Orchestrator on a upstream version of Kubernetes. Then by running the ‘helm upgrade’ command I can add a FlashArray to scale the environment and take advantage of Smart Provisioning. First we see the new m50 is not used over the original m70. So the final upgrade adds labels for the failure domain or availability zone in Kubernetes. I also add my FlashBlade to enable block and file if needed for my workload. We use the sample application with node and storage selectors to now request the app use compute and storage in a particular AZ. Kubernetes will only schedule the compute on matching nodes and PSO will provision storage on matching storage arrays.

I would love to hear what you think of this and any other ways I can show this off to enable cloud native applications. I am always looking for good examples of containerized apps that need persistent storage. Hit me up on the twitters @jon_2vcps or submit a comment below.

Kubecon 2018 Seattle Pure Storage – also We are hiring

I will be at the Pure Storage booth at Kubecon next week December 11-13. Booth G7. Come see us to learn about Pure Service Orchestrator and Cloud Block Store for AWS. Find out How our customers are leveraging K8s to transform their applications and Pure Storage for their persistent storage needs.

It has been a fun (nearly 2 years) time at Pure working with our customers that already love Pure Storage for things like Oracle, SQL and VMware as they move into the world of K8s and Containers. Also helping customers that never used Pure before move from complicated or underperforming solutions for persistent storage to FlashArray or FlashBlade. With Cloud Block Store entering beta and GA later next year even more customers will want to see how to automate storage persistence on premises, in the public cloud or in a hybrid model. All of that to say if you are an architect looking to grow on our team please find me at Kubecon. I want meet you and learn why you love cloud, containers, Kubernetes and automating all the things in-between.
