Q: You’ve recently raised $10 Million in Series B funding; can you tell us something more?

A: Chris Evans Analyst at ArchitectingIT has published a new Performance Benchmarking Report evaluating four leading Kubernetes-based cloud native storage solutions has placed StorageOS ahead of Cloud Native Storage technologies from Longhorn, Rook/Ceph and OpenEBS
Over the last few years, there has been rapid adoption of container-based applications and platforms such as Kubernetes. This has increased the need for persistent container storage and a move away from SAN-based plugins to container-native solutions that deliver storage — within the same or an adjacent cluster — to an application. StorageOS meets this market demand by providing fast, scalable, software-based block storage with rapid failover, replication, in-memory cache, data reduction and a built-in rules-engine.
