Microservices are now a common and critical component of enterprise applications. In just a few short years, we have moved from stateless, microservices-based applications residing in the front end to complex stateful apps incorporating databases and other valuable data. These container-based applications scale up and down quickly and work as a single distributed entity. Traditional Kubernetes data protection approaches can’t keep pace with the complexity, volatility, and velocity of change in these container-based microservices environments. Solutions like CloudCasa meet this emergent need, providing end-to-end environmental awareness and Kubernetes data protection and migration features that work with Kubernetes and cloud-native services that would otherwise be at risk.
