We are very happy to announce availability of Portworx Enterprise 2.6.0. This is a major update to the Portworx Enterprise product with following key features and several enhancements:
- Node capacity rebalancing –– Ensures no single node is allocated to full capacity when other nodes have space and are able to move replicas for a balanced state.
- K3s support –– K3s is a popular Kubernetes distribution for edge applications which often include hundreds or thousands of endpoints. Now the Portworx Storage Platform can be used with k3s clusters opening the door to the rapid growth of data services at the edge.
- Proxy Volumes –– Kubernetes application pods can now access external data sources (e.g. NFS shares) from Portworx Volumes.
- Guest (public) role access - simplifies adoption of PX-Security allowing users to create and access public volumes
Details on the enhancements can be found in the release notes here
