Rook runs as a cloud-native service for optimal integration with applications in need of storage, and handles the heavy-lifting behind the scenes such as provisioning and management.
Rook orchestrates battle-tested open-source storage technologies including Ceph, which has years of production deployments and runs some of the worlds largest clusters.
Rook is open source software released under the Apache 2.0 license. Rook has an active developer and user community.
Rook is designed to run as a native Kubernetes service – it scales along side your apps.
Rook offers storage for your Kubernetes app through persistent volumes.
Rook takes advantage of many benefits of the platform, such as streamlined resource management, health checks, failover, upgrades, and networking, to name just a few.
Whichever supported storage technologies you choose, Rook ensures that resources can be deployed and managed automatically.
With Rook you can either build dedicated storage clusters or hyper-converged clusters where your apps run alongside storage.
Rook integrates Ceph with multiple storage presentations including object storage (compatible with S3 and swift), block storage, and POSIX-compliant shared file system.
Rook efficiently distributes and replicates your data across your cluster to minimize the risk of data loss. With snapshots, cloning and versioning, no more losing sleep over your data.
Scale is now possible in your datacenter. Get started with a few terabytes, and easily to scale up to petabytes. Simply add more nodes and Rook takes care of the rest.
Runs on commodity hardware to optimize your workload. Take advantage of SSD or NVMe for high performance, or lower your costs with HDD.
