Top 10 Reasons for Using CloudCasa

Immediately benefit from a powerful and easy to use Kubernetes backup service that does all the hard work for you to backup your multi-cluster applications and provide granular or cluster-level recovery including cross-account, cross-cluster, and cross-cloud recovery.

CloudCasa is so easy to use that even developers won’t mind managing backups. It comes with a generous free service plan (no credit card required) and it is a great alternative to using Velero or Kasten.

Here are the Top 10 reasons to use CloudCasa for Kubernetes backup, migration and disaster recovery, vs. these options:
  • Do-it-yourself (DIY) products, whether open source like Velero or a product that you have to license, install and maintain like Kasten or Trilio
  • Retrofitted enterprise or cloud backup products with container support, that still have all their baggage from the past (you know who they are)
  • Cloud vendor or any VM backup that is not Kubernetes aware, or is single cloud only
  • Container storage solutions with replication, or that come bundled with a single purpose backup application like PX-backup
  • Solutions that don’t offer a free service plan or that charge by the cluster or by worker nodes

Kubernetes Backup as-a-Service with Cyber-Resilience

CloudCasa is a SaaS solution so there is no need to build backup infrastructure, maintain a complex backup installation or worry about the security of your installation. Set it and forget it and you’ll never need to patch it. We automate and do all the hard work for you including checking your security posture.

Free Snapshots Forever with Kubernetes Resource Backups and Security Scans

The Free Service Plan provides unlimited PV snapshots with orchestration, no limits on worker nodes or clusters, with Kubernetes and cloud security scans, and Kubernetes resource backups included for free!

Cloud Database Protection with Application-Awareness

CloudCasa orchestrates cloud database snapshots, initially Amazon RDS, and it provides application hooks to ensure application-consistent backups of data. Cloud databases account for a large portion of persistent data for applications running on Kubernetes.

Capacity-Based Pricing that is Fair, Transparent and Simple

Pay only for the data being protected and not for the infrastructure the backup uses. CloudCasa supports backup of Kubernetes persistent volumes (PVs), Amazon EBS persistent volumes, and more. Pricing is simple with a capacity-based subscription model with full transparency.

Cyber Resilient, Tamperproof Backups with Ransomware Protection

Cyber resiliency is part of everything CloudCasa does, with logical air-gapping in different clouds or accounts, and tamperproof SafeLock protection for your encrypted backup data. Protect your data from a hacker or a ransomware attack, a malicious user, or even accidental deletion by yourself.

Multi-Cluster, Cross-Cluster and Cross-Cloud Management

Multi- and cross-cluster, cross-account, cross-region, and cross-cloud backup and restore. Why settle for less! The challenge of manually dealing with self-hosting a product like Velero or Kasten on dozens of clusters and multiple cloud, and trying to migrate data across different accounts and clouds is very different from dealing with a single cluster and a single cloud environment.

Cross-Cluster, Cross-Account, Cross-Region, and Cross-Cloud Recovery

CloudCasa protects against local and temporary outages of your cloud provider by allowing you to quickly restore in an alternate cluster, zone or region or account, or even to an alternate cloud provider. Don’t end up with all your eggs in one basket if your cloud account gets compromised or your application is misconfigured. Easily provide the separation of Dev, Test, and Prod that your IT Ops team requires!

Intuitive GUI with Built-In
Chat Support

Get ease of configuration and management from an intuitive GUI that guides you through the initial setup and configuration of accounts and resources and data to backup, and provides policy-driven automation of the backup and restore operations. Compare that to using Velero with a CLI or a home-brewed UI. Easily chat with us from the GUI if you have a question.

Centralized Catalog, Monitoring and Reporting

You don’t have to pray and hope that you have a backup when you need it. From the CloudCasa console, you can quickly confirm you have recovery points available and monitor your backups on an ongoing basis, to know you can recover your data. We can also monitor them for you and proactively inform you of failures.

Amazon EBS Snapshots and CSI Snapshots in One Solution

You no longer need to use Velero along with multiple cloud backup products to protect your EKS, AKS, or GKE applications, or worry about what type of snapshots are supported. We take care of that for you, and we are adding more public cloud workload support.

As a Kubernetes backup-as-a-service solution, CloudCasa removes the complexity of managing traditional backup infrastructure and it provides the same enterprise-level of data protection that your IT Operations provide today.
With CloudCasa, IT doesn’t need to be Kubernetes experts and DevOps doesn’t need to be storage and database protection experts in order to backup and recover your Kubernetes clusters and even your cloud databases. And cyber-resilience and ransomware protection is built it.
CloudCasa provides a generous free Kubernetes backup service plan that includes unlimited worker nodes, clusters, and unlimited CSI and RDS snapshots with 30 days retention. Easily manage Amazon RDS snapshots, schedule and manage multi-region copies of RDS snapshots, and recover RDS snapshots from CloudCasa or AWS automatic backups

Our goal is to do all the hard work for you to backup and protect your multi-cloud, multi-cluster, Kubernetes applications and databases so you can realize the operational efficiency and speed of development advantages of containers and cloud native applications.
