Why Portworx Backup?

Container-granular and App-aware Backup and Restore

Ensure all application data, configurations, and objects are fully protected with app-aware and container granular backup across Kubernetes clusters, VMs, and databases, so you don’t spend unnecessary time and effort retro-fitting a machine-based solution that wasn’t built for the volume or infrastructure of Kubernetes data.

Cross-cloud Migration and Application Portability

Portworx Backup enables easy migration for applications, including stateful apps, between any cloud, hybrid, or on-prem environment. To put it simply, you can back up your app in one environment and restore in another—even if they’re non-Portworx volumes.

Self-Service Access for DevOps Teams

Gain enterprise-level control over your organization’s most valuable asset—your data. Portworx Backup offers sophisticated role-based access controls that give self-service access to app owners—including setting their own backup policies and rules.

Ransomware Protection and Disaster Recovery

Guarantee data protection from ransomware attacks with recoverable data from backups. Ensure business continuity from failures or outages with zero RPO and failovers within seconds for mission critical apps by pairing with PX-DR.

More than 40% of respondents indicate thattheir organizations have been victims of ransomware attacks, and smaller companies (those with fewer than 1,000 employees) were 11% more likely to be attacked than their larger counterparts. ”

“Backup is simpler [with Portworx]. We can now back up single data volumes, restore them to another namespace, and then simply copy the data we need directly from that space, which saves us significant time and headaches.”
