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|
|Application consistency for distributed databases|
