Diamanti sells a hyperconverged Kubernetes platform that can be software-only or ship on an appliance sold by Diamanti or hardware partners. It includes container management software, NVMe storage and optional hardware offload cards to accelerate performance.

Startup Diamanti began selling its container-native storage in 2017. Diamanti’s Container Native Storage (CNS) includes:

  • Spektra — a Kubernetes-based control plane
  • Ultima — a data plane
  • Ultima PCIe-based offload card
  • D20 hyperconverged appliances running its software and hardware accelerator cards.

The components work separately or as a package. Spektra and Ultima software are not required to run together, although Diamanti optimized Spektra and Ultima to work in unison. If customers are using another control plane such as Red Hat OpenShift, that control plane can manage Ultima software.

The offload cards and D20 appliances are also not required to run Diamanti software-defined storage.

Spektra’s stack includes:

  • Kubernetes
  • container runtime
  • operating system
  • data protection/disaster recovery
  • access controls.

Spektra enables provisioning and management of Kubernetes clusters hosted on-premises or in public clouds. The Diamanti Kubernetes CLI can be accessed through the Spektra console.
