CSI unifies the storage interface of Container Orchestrator Systems (COs) such as Kubernetes so that implementing a single CSI can work with all COs. IBM now supports CSI in its block and file storage families, including the new IBM FlashSystem family, IBM DS8000 and IBM Spectrum Scale solutions.

Storage for Red Hat OpenShift

Storage for Red Hat OpenShift brings enterprise storage services to private cloud container environments—which, along with microservices, is a key enabler of hybrid multicloud. Containers are ephemeral, and ideal for replication and migration; however, the lightweight, throw-away nature challenges an enterprise’s responsibility to protect and maintain the workloads.

Container data is crucial and must have the same considerations of enterprise data. IBM’s Storage for Red Hat OpenShift recognizes this important difference and offers market-leading virtualization, data reduction and protection.
