Objectrocket Hosting Platforms¶
Currently, ObjectRocket hosts our products via two hosting platforms. This section covers the difference between the two platforms and the features of each.
Why multiple platforms?¶
The original ObjectRocket hosting platform is very customized and tuned to run datastores in our own environments and on our own custom hardware. Despite technologies, like DirectConnect, that allow us to achieve like-local performance, there are still reasons that a platform natively running in AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and others is needed.
To build this cloud native platform, we started from scratch with a Kubernetes-based platform. Kubernetes, with its maturity and large developer community, has allowed us to quickly create a new platform that we can drop in any cloud.
In addition to offering datastores in every cloud, this new platform will also allow us to support new datastores and features that are currently not available on our existing platform.
Offering two platforms allows us to continue to meet the unique performance and hardware needs of our existing customers while also offering a local solution for customers running in public clouds.
