Take advantage of cloud-enabled hardware components from Dell when deploying Pivotal Greenplum on-premises. Augment capabilities with specialized storage add-ons to increase performance.
Use Greenplum Building Blocks (GBB) that are blueprinted modules designed for analytic data workloads whether they are ingest oriented, query processing oriented, or for archival storage.
Leverage object stores to land data for parallel loading or querying, and use object stores as a simple target for database backup and restore.
Gain high CPU density and high- performance networking on Dell commodity hardware. Tiered storage provides additional performance and gross capacity for reasonable investment.
Deploy software-defined storage (SDS) optionally to simplify a Greenplum cluster. It handles mirroring as well as backup and restore at the storage level.
Deploy Pivotal Greenplum with GBB on-premises and leverage AWS in a hybrid cloud through direct connect within your AWS Virtual Private Cloud.
SDS provides a consistent storage feature, independent of the underlying hardware. It is certified to deploy in Pivotal Container Service (PKS).
Dell Technologies provides commodity hardware solutions based on the GBB specification.
The Hedvig platform is a software-defined storage (SDS) solution for distributed systems. Hedvig reduces enterprise storage costs by 60% while accelerating IT's ability to migrate apps to the cloud. The Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform combines block, file, and object storage for bare metal, hypervisor, and container environments. Hedvig increases performance and simplifies deployment architecture of Pivotal Greenplum deployed in PKS and in GBB hardware.
Minio is a high-performance, distributed object storage server, designed for large-scale private cloud infrastructure, compatible with AWS S3. Minio for Greenplum provides storage for files to be loaded, external tables to be queried, and a target for database backups.
Portworx provides cloud-native storage for rapidly deploying containerized applications across multiple clouds and on-premises environments. Portworx increases performance and simplifies deployment architecture of Pivotal Greenplum deployed in PKS and in GBB hardware.
