The Challenges with Data Protection for Kubernetes Apps
If you’re moving Kubernetes apps into production, you need to have a data protection plan in place to anticipate the unexpected and ensure quick recovery of all your data.
Data loss with traditional backup solutions
The risk of losing or corrupting data increases if a backup solution isn’t purpose-built for Kubernetes. Traditional backup methods don’t fully capture all app components.
App downtime from disasters is expensive
A few hours of a service outage from a disaster or error can cost you millions of dollars. A disaster recovery plan protects you from the effects of prolonged downtime.
Data gravity for Kubernetes applications
If you’re an organization that works across geographies and cloud providers, your data needs to seamlessly migrate across clusters or Kubernetes environments.
Difficult to maintain regulatory or corporate compliance
Maintaining copies of data for a certain time per government regulations or adhering to corporate security mandates for data access can be difficult to do on your own.
