Top 10 Reasons for Using CloudCasa instead of Velero
Velero is an open source, CLI-based tool that needs infrastructure to be provisioned and supported for it. Then you need to manually setup and configure it for each cluster you have, including the backup storage target for each cluster. With CloudCasa, your users will get a lot more value-added features on top of Velero for your Kubernetes and cloud native data protection and disaster recovery. Since CloudCasa leverages Velero for some of its data protection capabilities, let’s go through the major additions we have added vs. using Velero as a stand-alone solution.
Finally, CloudCasa is FREE forever at the level of service provided by the beta release, that includes unlimited worker nodes and clusters, and unlimited CSI snapshots, with 30 days retention. Looking forward, our premium level of service in 1H2021 will support application consistent snapshots, backup of Persistent Volumes (PVs) and Serverless databases and more.
Catalogic Software, the developer of CloudCasa, is known for its copy data management and data protection products, including being a technology partner to IBM Storage, Pure Storage, HPE Storage, NetApp, and others.
Our goal is to do all the hard work for you to backup and protect your multi-cloud, multi-cluster, cloud native databases and applications so you can realize the operational efficiency and speed of development advantages of containers and cloud native applications.
