Diamanti Launches Diamanti Ultima to Simplify Data Management in Enterprise Kubernetes

Standalone Software Solution Provides Single Pane of Glass to Easily Extend Kubernetes Data Across Hybrid- and Multi-Cloud Environments

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diamanti, the company that streamlines Kubernetes application and data management for today’s global enterprise, today announced Diamanti Ultima, a new standalone software product based on Diamanti's industry-leading Kubernetes data plane management solution. Diamanti Ultima delivers cloud-native data services with the only integrated networking and storage data plane solution that can extend across on-premises and cloud-based environments, supporting any Kubernetes cluster distribution. Ultima replaces multiple point solutions needed to deliver multi-cluster networking and storage management and works with a wide range of underlying infrastructure. It includes multi-tenant L2 and overlay container networking capabilities and container-aware data services like snapshots, backup, synchronous mirroring, and asynchronous replication, providing a simple and consistent operating experience for container lifecycle management across a hybrid cloud.

"Data management is changing drastically as more enterprises adopt Kubernetes across hybrid cloud infrastructures and containerize stateful applications," said Tom Barton, CEO, Diamanti. "Many enterprises struggle with the complexity of Kubernetes and legacy storage and networking solutions that are not container-aware. Diamanti Ultima offers enterprises an all-in-one approach for seamless data management and portability across different clouds, delivering granular controls and protections for microservices and distributed applications."

Ultima abstracts the underlying storage infrastructure (e.g. Amazon EBS or NVMe) to enable application freedom across clouds. “The popularity of hybrid-cloud deployments means that many [organizations] will face the need to manage stateful applications across infrastructure types,” stated Liam Rogers, associate research analyst, 451 Research, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence. “We believe customers will be looking for platforms that provide data management capabilities beyond data protection, that enable application and data portability, as well as offer seamless availability across locations that ensures management consistency and performance.” 1

Ultima’s broad set of capabilities provides enterprises with simple operations, seamless data management across hybrid clouds with improved security and data protection for these environments.
