The preview of Continuous Restore is now available. The technology allows applications in any location to be backed up with storage hardware in any location.
Trilio revealed the release at KubeCon 2022, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s annual conference. Techzine is on location in Valencia, Spain. Check out this page for an overview of the most important news.
Trilio develops backup solutions for Kubernetes, OpenStack and Red Hat Virtualization. The latest update extends Trilio’s offering for Kubernetes, TrilioVault for Kubernetes. This solution has long made it possible to set up backups for all data in Kubernetes environments. The largest distributions are supported, including Red Hat OpenShift, SUSE Rancher and Amazon EKS.
Continuous Restore takes things one step further. The technology provides a quick way to backup applications in locations of choice. An app can run on a Kubernetes distribution while the storage hardware resides in the office: it doesn’t matter. Apps in any location can be connected to storage hardware in any location, from on-premises to the cloud.
“Distributed environments consisting of core, edge and cloud resources are becoming the predominant architecture for enterprises today”, said Murali Balcha, founder and CTO of Trilio. “Unfortunately, no easy-to-use, affordable solution for continuous data volume replication across heterogeneous infrastructure environments exists today. Trilio’s Continuous Restore capability enables migration and replication of stateful applications in seconds or minutes so that all companies can protect and use their data anywhere—regardless of what the application runs on or where the data is stored.”
In addition to recovery, Continuous Restore helps with cloud migrations. Each storage source can be replicated to a new location, eliminating silos and allowing storage to move along with apps. In addition, the data of a production environment can be mirrored in a test environment. This enables DevOps teams to test recovery protocols.
As mentioned earlier, Continuous Restore is part of TrilioVault for Kubernetes. The latter solution runs on Kubernetes. The standard version of Kubernetes is managed with a command-line tool, Kubectl. Although it’s possible to manage TrilioVault for Kubernetes with Kubectl, you’re required to. TrilioVault for Kubernetes includes a visual management console for configuring and managing backups and recovery.
The preview is available upon request. Feel free to contact Trilio if you’re interested. General availability is expected in the third quarter of 2022.
