Backup and recovery for containers

Copy URL

Backup is needed for both logical and physical protection. Organizations can use an effective backup strategy to recover quickly from application issues or restore accidentally deleted files. Additional storage technologies can also be enabled to use storage snapshots for quick recovery.

Backing up and restoring the data that powers applications is critical to meeting recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO). Technologies such as containers, Kubernetes, and serverless present new opportunities in application development but still need a recovery plan in the event of a failure.
