TeleMessage Taps Pure Storage for Kubernetes Storage

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — The messaging company TeleMessage implemented a Kubernetes storage solution by the data storage company Pure Storage.

TeleMessage is using Portworx Enterprise, an end-to-end Kubernetes storage and data management solution, to scale its archiving services and enhance its secure and compliant data storage to customers, according to Pure Storage last month.

TeleMessage’s archiving services help companies embrace bring your own device (BYOD) policies, while securing critical data and keeping pace with the latest data protection regulations.

TeleMessage migrated its business to a Kubernetes-based infrastructure to create a more flexible, agile, and “developer-friendly environment” to support the enhancement and scalability of services for customers.

The company chose to move some of its data storage to Portworx’s cloud-native Kubernetes storage, which integrates with HashiCorp’s Vault for data encryption.

TeleMessage can deliver encrypted communication archiving for customers, supported by redundancy from Portworx. For instance, with Kafka as its queuing engine and Portworx for Kafka storage, if a microservice or Docker image experiences a failure, there should be no impact on TeleMessage’s services. 

Portworx also helps TeleMessage meet specific security and compliance needs for different customers, from GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI DSS data loss prevention to industry-specific regulations, such as FINRA, CFTC, and MiFID in the financial sector.

Overall, TeleMessage built a secure and persistent encryption process, assuring messages are secure in transit and at rest, with Portworx’s Kubernetes storage, HashiCorp Vault’s key manager, and implementation support from Terasky.

The transition was done in three months.

“We took a leap in running Portworx’s cloud-native storage on our on-prem environment, and the payoff has been greater than expected,” said Yossi Shteingart, operations manager, TeleMessage.

“We have reduced our risk of downtime and failure, and we have redundancy in place on the off chance something goes wrong. 

“Utilizing this new framework, our enterprise customers can operate with the peace of mind that every message an employee sends is secured in transit and at rest and stored in a compliant way.”
