Diamanti Raises $12.5 Million Appliance Built to Track Linux Containers

Diamanti (previously Datawise.io) , a start-up based in San Jose, California, emerged from stealth to unveil its converged appliance built to address the infrastructure problems that developers and operators face when deploying containers in production. The solution’s software-defined controls, which Diamanti has contributed to Kubernete’s open source project, empower developers to specify their network and storage resources and service levels. The appliance includes network and storage innovations that deliver guaranteed performance levels with 10X latency and throughput improvements. It also plugs seamlessly into existing infrastructure and is simple to deploy, manage, and scale for operators.


"Diamanti was founded to solve network and storage challenges in Linux containerized environments,” said Jeff Chou, Diamanti co-founder and CEO. “Diamanti’s guiding philosophy is that solving IO challenges demands converged networking and storage."

“Our vision is to enable enterprises to deploy containerized applications quickly, knowing with certainty how they will perform and that they will work off the shelf in an open ecosystem,” said Chou. “We fast track containers to production by automating their most challenging networking and storage operations.”

Diamanti has contribute its FlexVolume code to Kubernetes. This contribution automates IO configuration based on user-defined requirements. Diamanti's scheduler contribution enables the Kubernetes scheduler to factor storage and networking requirements when placing workloads, leveraging a declarative model for developers and container administrators.

“Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise, built including Kubernetes and Docker technologies, accelerates containerized application development for our customers,” said Ashesh Badani, VP and General Manager Openshift Group, Red Hat. “Diamanti’s network and storage contributions to the community give users further choice in how they deploy performance applications at scale. We look forward to continued collaboration with Diamanti to drive industry adoption of containers.”

Diamanti also announced $12.5 million in funding. Backers include CRV, DFJ, GSR Ventures, and Goldman Sachs.
