PX-Backup for Kubernetes: Backup & Recovery Any Kubernetes App Skip to Content

Easily backup and restore all your Kubernetes applications

Built from the ground up for Kubernetes, PX-Backup delivers enterprise-grade application and data protection with fast recovery at the click of a button


Effortlessly backup and restore Kubernetes applications across any environment

Kubernetes creates a shift from machine-based infrastructure and operations to application-focused operations. This shift increases agility and reduces friction, but it creates problems for enterprises dependent on traditional backup tools for data protection. These solutions, built to backup machines, don’t understand key Kubernetes concepts like container-granularity, namespaces, Kubernetes configurations, backing up distributed databases, and multi-cloud operations.

Kubernetes Application Data Protection Requirements With traditional VM Backup tools With PX-Backup
Container granularity x circle check
Application consistency for distributed databases x circle check
Kubernetes complete (app config, Kubernetes objects & data) x circle check
Namespace awareness x circle check
Multi-cloud x circle check

Use Cases



Backup entire Kubernetes applications, including data, app configuration, and Kubernetes objects across clouds.



Restore any Kubernetes application to any Kubernetes cluster in the cloud or on-prem.



Move a single Kubernetes application or an entire namespace between clusters in a single data center or between environments.
