Dave Raffo was quoted: Kubernetes storage still acquisition target for IT vendors

Tuesday, March 14th 2023

Recently, Akamai announced their acquisition of Ondat, a container native storage start-up. Dave Raffo was quoted on his thought regarding the acquisition and his thoughts regarding Kubernetes adoption.


These buys are done under the presumption that Kubernetes adoption will continue to grow among enterprise customers or as another enhancement to existing company products that lack the ability to abstract the more complicated aspects of container storage, according to Dave Raffo, an analyst at Evaluator Group.

“As these [enterprise] applications scale to hundreds of clusters, they are going to need a separate storage product,” Raffo said. “There doesn’t seem to be a lot of usage yet. There’s a thinking there will be.”
