ORock Technologies, Crunchy Data Partner on DBaaS Solution (MESA)

IT infrastructure and hybrid cloud solutions firm ORock Technologies has announced a new partnership with open-source PostgreSQL and enterprise PostgreSQL technology company Crunchy Data, one that will see ORock provide Crunchy PostgreSQL for Kubernetes in FedRAMP authorized container application platform as a service (PaaS) solution.

Crunchy Data and ORock will offer PostgreSQL-as-a-service within ORock’s Secure Containers as a Service, with Red Hat OpenShift environment. The combined offering results in a fully managed database-as-a-service (DBaaS) solution that enables deployment of containerized PostgreSQL in both hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

“Providing a secure database capability is a key component of ORock’s managed service portfolio, particularly for applications we bring through the FedRAMP authorization process,” said John Conniff, COO of ORock Technologies. “Crunchy Data’s enterprise PostgreSQL support enhances our ability to offer our customers industry-leading open source solutions inside our FedRAMP authorized cloud.”

ORock’s Secure Containers solution is a fully managed, FedRAMP authorized PaaS solution, that is hosted and accessed through ORockCloud, built specifically for government agencies and highly regulated commercial organizations. The enterprise-grade, open-source environment is the only FedRAMP Moderate cloud that incorporates both Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, featuring enhanced security without vendor lock-in.

By integrating with the Red Hat OpenShift platform within ORock’s cloud environments, Crunchy PostgreSQL for Kubernetes leverages the ability of the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to bring developers and IT operations on a single FedRAMP-compliant platform to build, deploy and manage applications across hybrid cloud infrastructures.

“Crunchy Data is committed to providing organizations with the power and efficiency of enterprise-ready, trusted open source PostgreSQL on their choice of infrastructure – on-premises, private, or public cloud,” said Paul Laurence, president of Crunchy Data. “Partnering with ORock brings Crunchy PostgreSQL to ORock’s FedRAMP authorized cloud platform, providing government agencies and highly regulated commercial organizations with a true open source database-as-a-service in a secure, performant and cost predictable cloud environment.”
