Kubernetes data services provider ionir is teaming up with Zensar, an engineering and technology solutions firm, to offer clients full data mobility solutions for hybrid and multi-cloud architecture. Zensar will add ionir to its solution stack.
According to IBM’s State of Multicloud study for 2021, 30 percent of enterprises are now utilizing three or more clouds, and 56 percent of those on the container/cloud-native path are running containers in production.
According to IDC, 80 percent of workloads are migrating to containers, with over 70 percent of containers running in private, non-hyperscale settings. Customers’ concerns about single-source reliability, vendor lock-in, pricing, compliance, and geolocation are driving pressures for hybrid and multi-cloud growth.
Advanced use cases, on the other hand, are hampered by size since, while apps may be quickly transferred across clouds, the underlying data is more difficult to move, duplicate, and secure in a hybrid or multi-cloud environment.
With ionir, any volume may be replicated across clusters or the globe in 40 seconds or less, regardless of capacity or distance.
Customers can construct a single data cloud for their applications across all of their infrastructure, anywhere, using ionir’s cloud-native storage and data management platform for Kubernetes, which combines high-performance, software-defined storage and data management with data mobility. Jerusalem Venture Partners (JVP) and C5 Capital, among others, are among the investors in ionir.
“Applications are relatively easy to move between clouds, but it’s the data where things get tricky. ionir and Zensar are working to help solve that problem,” said Jacob Cherian, chief product officer, ionir. “Adding ionir to Zensar’s solution stack will provide enterprises with more agile multi-cloud strategies. We’re looking forward to the new opportunities this agreement will bring.”
Through experience design, data engineering, and powerful analytics, Zensar empowers users to create, construct, and manage digital goods. Their solutions are built on top-of-the-line platforms. Zensar’s 10,000+ employees work in 33 locations across the world, including San Jose, Seattle, Princeton, Cape Town, London, Singapore, and Mexico City.
“Cloud is omnipresent, offering benefits to clients like faster time to market, ease of use, etc. However, data mobility does present a few challenges, which is what ionir manages successfully,” said Animesh Pillai, AVP and global head, digital infrastructure, Zensar. “We look forward to working closely with their team to enable our global clients to navigate multi-cloud environments seamlessly.”
