BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2015) - Portworx, a Silicon Valley startup creating next-generation storage software for hosting stateful applications in Docker containers, bridges the worlds of enterprise application development, delivery and production with its PWX solution. PWX enables the rapid deployment of stateful, distributed applications into production by allowing them to be scaled without IT intervention. In recognition of its unique container-aware storage solution, Portworx was named to the New Innovators Showcase at DockerCon EU 2015 and will demo its featured solution in the show's Ecosystem Expo. The New Innovators Showcase highlights young startups that are building cool tools and services around Docker.

The Portworx PWX demo will be hosted in the company's Sandbox, a live cluster hosted in Amazon Web Services that allows users to see how a truly software-defined, container-centric data center would function. The Sandbox allows the deployment of stateful services directly from a private repository or the Docker hub and supports the creation and scaling of container instances to use these services.

Portworx PWX is a scale-out block storage implementation of the OpenStorage specification for deploying infrastructure as code. The solution is a complete container defined infrastructure software stack, running on commodity x86 hardware that includes scheduling, storage and networking. Portworx PWX handles the overall clustering and scheduling of all containerized services via a software-driven approach on commodity servers or Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). Applications for PWX are in DevOps, Hadoop applications and scale-out web apps.
