Data management and SaaS protection company Redstor has launched a new service aimed at transforming how managed and cloud service providers (MSPs and CSPs) protect Kubernetes environments in AWS. The firm has added support for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes (Amazon EKS), a managed container service for handling applications in the cloud or on-premises, giving partners the ability to scale customer backups and removing the need to rely on disparate, ununified solutions.
Extension unifies backups for container-based applications
Traditionally, backups are not designed for modern, container-based applications, forcing service providers to deploy separate Kubernetes solutions to backup not only applications, but configurations, Redstor said. With its new extension, the company seeks to unify such processes and eliminate the need to bolt together multiple solutions.
