Reducing the risk of workload data loss during OpenStack upgrades

September 18, 2019, 6:00 p.m. UTC

Cloud upgrades can be painful. It’s tempting to delay these system changes and bypass updates in order to avoid interruptions in day-to-day operations. But as your software ages and become more susceptible to security risks over time, the need for a simple, reliable upgrade path grows more urgent. 

This webinar will walk through the Red Hat fast forward upgrade process and introduce TrilioVault, which provides data protection for complete OpenStack workloads. 

Join us to learn:

  • How Red Hat and Trilio offer a safer, more secure, and more efficient path for customers to upgrade to the latest OpenStack version.
  • About the value of data protection during upgrades and how TrilioVault captures and protects tenant workloads throughout the procedure. 
  • How administrators can rapidly and efficiently restore an entire overcloud in an automated fashion, while minimizing user input to the bare minimum. 
  • How you can reduce downtime by streamlining restoration activities with point-in-time backups from Trilio.
