Catalogic Software, a leading provider of smart data protection solutions, today announced a new partnership between its cloud native back-up-as-a-service platform CloudCasa and Ondat, a leading Kubernetes-native data platform provider. The combined CloudCasa and Ondat solution provides customers with a unified solution to run stateful applications on Kubernetes without worrying about availability, performance, protection, or the recovery of data.
CloudCasa protects Kubernetes environments with a cyber-resilient, scalable backup and disaster recovery service for cloud native applications. Ondat is a container-native, software defined storage solution for Kubernetes, to run stateful workloads with high availability, scale, and security. Ondat is platform agnostic, requiring no changes to Kubernetes and enables users to virtualize any storage while providing snapshots, replication and failover for HA, and encryption of data at rest and in transit.
“The adoption of Kubernetes continues its rapid growth, with over 5.1 million developers worldwide now using it to manage containerized workloads and services. Kubernetes has numerous benefits including self-healing, load balancing and application centricity, but it also has challenges like managing storage and ensuring persistent volume data is protected,” said Sathya Sankaran, General Manager of CloudCasa by Catalogic. “We’re pleased to team up with Ondat to allow users to take back control of their persistent data layer in Kubernetes, and ensure their data is protected, compliant and available to be restored anywhere – on-premises, cloud, or hybrid.”
CloudCasa integrates natively with all Kubernetes storage platforms like Ondat, and managed Kubernetes services such as Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) and Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS). CloudCasa works with Ondat to take and manage snapshots to back up and restore Kubernetes Persistent Volumes (PVs). Along with data protection and recovery, CloudCasa provides cluster and cloud-aware backups allowing organizations to easily restore data across clusters, regions, cloud accounts and cloud providers, which is extremely important in disaster recovery scenarios.
