Catalogic Adds Kubernetes to CloudCasa Feature Set

Catalogic Software has announced availability of a new feature set for CloudCasa, its cloud native backup-as-a-service platform. CloudCasa now supports backup of Kubernetes persistent volumes (PV) to cloud storage, including Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS) persistent volumes. The new feature set is being offered in a new capacity-based subscription model.

The platform now provides Kubernetes persistent volumes backups with a host of benefits for DevOps and IT teams, including fair pricing that allows users to pay only for the data being protected, a free service tier that provides unlimited PV and Amazon RDS snapshots with up to 30 days’ retention, and security and compliance with SafeLock protection to ensure tamper proof backups. 

Cloudcasa’s new feature set offers a host of benefits for DevOps and IT teams.

In addition, CloudCasa protects and secures Kubernetes as a scalable data protection and disaster recovery service for cloud native applications. It supports all leading Kubernetes distributions, managed services, and cloud database services.

Capacity-Based Pricing Model

Catalogic Software’s COO Sathya Sankaran highlights the company’s new capacity-based subscription pricing model — part of its SaaS approach —  as outside the norm for Kubernetes backup platforms, who often charge based on what infrastructure is used.   

“These models are unfair to the early adopters of Kubernetes,” notes Sankaran, “ who are charged based on the scalability of their application rather than on the amount of stateful or persistent data.”  

CloudCasa protects cloud-native applications across Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS, DigitalOcean, Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service, Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Red Hat OpenShift, SUSE Rancher, and VMware Tanzu.
