Portworx Inc. builds software-defined infrastructure for containerized applications.
The company offers Portworx PWX, a container-aware infrastructure that provides software-defined scale-out block storage to containerized applications.
Its solution allows applications to have state-full persistence and be scheduled fluidly across machines and private and public clouds; and enables rapid deployment and scaling of stateless and state-full enterprise applications.
Stateful containers such as databases consist of a stateless container image and a stateful container volume.
With native Docker, when a container moves, its data volume doesnâ€™t move with it. With Portworx, no matter where your containers are scheduled, they always have their data.
The companyâ€™s solutions is used on-premises or on cloud-based deployments.
Portworx Inc. was founded in 2014 and is based in Redwood City, California.
