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.
