The data-management company Commvault recently announced that it has expanded protection for Kubernetes workloads. This includes automated management, replication, migration, and security enhancements, across the entire portfolio.
According to the company, these new features are intended to offer customers simple management and enterprise-grade protection for hybrid, multi-cloud environments.
“Using Commvault’s single platform, we are able to proactively monitor and assess risks, mitigate cyber threats to the business, and protect all workloads, including Kubernetes, in multi-clouds – reducing our OPEX by up to 40% compared to the previous solutions,” said Bruno Bianchini, head of infrastructure and technological services – global digital solutions at ENEL. “Commvault proved to be the most effective solution to support our growth strategy and continue our digital transformation journey, without impacting productivity and customer service.”
Key enhancements include:
- Cloud-native protection and recoverability for the entire Kubernetes ecosystem, including full clusters, namespaces, and ETCD and SSL certification protection
- Faster and easier development testing and lifecycle events with migrations of Kubernetes applications between clusters, distributions, versions, and storage
- Cheaper disaster recovery by replacing business-critical applications offsite for on-demand application recovery
“I’m genuinely excited that Commvault’s announcements are bringing world-class data management solutions to Kubernetes,” said Nigel Poulton, Kubernetes author, trainer and evangelist. “Having spent a lot of time in this space, it’s exciting to see long-term industry leaders taking it seriously – something that’s essential for industries like banking and healthcare where the full spectrum of protection must be in place before they can deploy any new workloads into the enterprise.”
