ionir Granted Approval for Latest Patent that Eliminates Data Gravity for Kubernetes Implementations

ionir announced the approval of a U.S. patent for its system of synchronizing data containers and improving data mobility, underscoring ionir’s efforts to help organizations achieve data agility and optimize their enterprise implementations of Kubernetes. 

As Kubernetes adoption increases, one barrier remains: data cannot be moved quickly. Kubernetes promises enterprises the freedom to run apps wherever makes the most sense, coupled with reduced operational complexity, and lower costs. However, left unresolved, data gravity threatens the entire Kubernetes value proposition. 

The issued patent describes ionir’s technology and approach to overcome data gravity, allowing application data to move with the ease of applications. Data mobility ensures the application can start working immediately at the new location. 

With ionir, full volumes—regardless of size or amount of data – are transported across clouds or across the world in less than 40 seconds, according to the vendor.

Organizations gain an agility advantage over their competitors by enabling them to make decisions faster, innovate quicker, and operate more effectively, according to the vendor.

“Today’s announcement reinforces the groundbreaking innovation underlying ionir’s Kubernetes Native Data Services platform, and ensures our customers gain resilience, agility and efficiency for their Kubernetes apps and data,” said Mike Wall, CEO, ionir. “We will continue to invest in bringing innovation to the Kubernetes market, allowing customers to optimize their IT investments while maximizing effectiveness.”
