Rok Data Management Platform Overview
Rok is the global data distribution layer that makes your apps truly performant and at the same time truly portable, in a fraction of the cost of a shared storage solution. The Rok data management and storage platform gives you the best of both worlds: the performance of local storage and the flexibility of shared storage.
Rok allows you to run your stateful containers over fast, local NVMe storage on-prem or on the cloud, and still be able to snapshot the whole application, along with its data and distribute it efficiently: across machines of the same Kubernetes cluster, or across distinct locations and administrative domains over a decentralized network. This hybrid approach to container networking makes data management for machine learning and real-time big data applications simple, without sacrificing performance.
Your applications may run over local NVMe SSDs, but you keep the flexibility feature, as if they were running over shared storage. Rok provides an enterprise data management layer that makes it possible for you to instantly snapshot your containers for local and offsite backups. Take immutable, group consistent snapshots of your apps and keep these snapshots in a backup store, e.g. S3. Combined with Rok’s instant cloning, you can recover from hardware failure in minutes, regardless of the volume’s capacity.
