In today’s world, the fast is eating the slow. As a result, enterprises are deploying modern apps like AI, personalisation and fraud detection to offer better results faster to their customers.

Unfortunately, IT leaders often struggle with deploying these modern apps and spend more time firefighting than innovating. Portworx is on a mission to change that.

Traditional apps are centrally managed and operated by skilled human administrators. On the other hand, modern apps are distributed, leverage automation and technologies like Kontainers & Kubernetes that allow rapid change and agility. Unfortunately, huge data growth, rapid deployment and global deployment of these modern apps are straining storage and data management systems designed for a more static world. This causes missed deadlines, poor user experience and strained resources.

Portworx was built from the ground up for modern apps that run on Kubernetes. So stop firefighting and focus on innovation with Portworx by Pure Storage.
