Trilio announced the availability of TrilioVault for Kubernetes (TVK) 2.1, the latest release of its cloud-native backup and recovery platform that enables restoration and mobility of entire Kubernetes workloads on-demand.
TrilioVault for Kubernetes 2.1 features new Kubernetes management functionality including visibility and insights into Velero-based backups as well as enhanced disaster recovery (DR) capabilities for multi-cloud infrastructure deployments.
The company also announced new Kubernetes distribution certifications from Rancher, IBM Cloud and VMware Tanzu.
Velero backup monitoring now included in TrilioVault for Kubernetes
Velero is an open source tool used to backup Kubernetes namespace and label-based resources but lacks a user interface that provides visibility into the full scope of challenges that may be encountered during backup, restore or migration operations.
TrilioVault for Kubernetes 2.1 now lets users monitor Velero backups directly from the TrilioVault Management Console. This gives users a complete view and insights into the status and performance of TrilioVault and Velero backups.
“Velero users asked us to help them seamlessly grow into an enterprise-class data protection platform while providing continuity across Trilio and Velero backups,” said Prashanto Kochavara, director of product at Trilio.
“With TrilioVault for Kubernetes 2.1, Velero users gain clarity in their backup and restore operations. Velero operators can now see what’s working and what’s not in a single pane of glass, in real time and within the context of the entire multi-cloud environment.”
Improved DR capabilities featured in TVK 2.1
As organizations rely on data spread across multi-cloud infrastructure, the importance of DR grows exponentially. TVK 2.1 delivers significant business continuity enhancements for cloud-native applications, including a new DR Plan.
This plan provides a guided workflow to easily select backups from different repositories, specify namespace mappings, and reconfigure the captured data and metadata across multiple applications at one time.
This helps organizations implement a DR strategy for their business-critical applications and then continually test the recoverability of those applications in a multi-cloud environment.
