Welcome to the documentation for Storidge's Container I/O (CIO). This website aims to document different aspects of CIO including CLI commands, API specification, use cases and references.
CIO creates a storage abstraction layer on top of a group of hosts for stateful applications to persist and share data on logical resources. The capabilities of CIO enables you to:
- easily deploy and keep running highly available containerized applications
- run hyperconverged workloads with orchestration systems
- effortlessly ensure consistent performance after container restarts with automated data locality
- eliminate 'noisy neighbor' issues in production
- avoid 3 am support calls through automated storage operations and recovery
If you are interested in how CIO compares with enterprise storage systems or other software defined storage solutions, refer to CIO vs Others.
It is recommended that you start with the Getting Started guide first, if you are just getting started with CIO. Then return to this page when you are ready for more details.
