Mesosphere, HPE has developed the Docker volume plugin, which allows containerized applications to store data on HPE Storage platforms such as 3PAR StoreServ and StoreVirtual. The plugin enables dynamically provisioned, scheduled, and orchestrated storage volumes from Docker Swarm and Meso- sphere Marathon. The storage volumes on 3PAR and StoreVirtual simply follow the containers wherever they're scheduled to run by the Orchestrator, allowing stateful containers to have the same mobility benefits as their stateless brethren. In addition, you can apply granular volume features and attributes such as size of the storage volume, volume type (thin or thick), and Adaptive Flash Cache, providing ultimate flexibility to customize storage options with finer granularity at the container level. Through the integration of this plugin, you can have a single stor- age platform for traditional as well as modern container cloud- native applications. And lest you think we forgot about the network, think again! Inside every software-defined data center lies software-defined networking. For Docker solutions, HPE has partnered with Aruba Networks as a preferred solution for building high-performance networks that can support even the largest container environ- ments. HPE and Arista offer a range of easily managed network- ing solutions designed to address the growth of big data, storage, cloud, and increasingly dense virtualized and containerized environments. To take full advantage of containers, the networking environ- ment must be optimized to connect container-based applications. HPE's server and network hardware agnostic Distributed Cloud Networking (DCN) can be implemented as a non-disruptive over- lay for all virtualized and physical server resources. With high flexibility, allowing it to be deployed in any Docker container, hypervisor, or bare-metal environment, HPE DCN has been field- tested to integrate fully with Docker. Software: HPE OneView Hardware is just one part of the story. For a complete experi- ence, you also need software. HPE OneView is a management tool that automates the delivery and operation of server, storage,
