CloudCasa Adds Cloud Awareness, Enterprise Hardening, And Self-Service Backups At KubeCon EU | Sathya Sankaran


In this episode of Let’s Talk with Swapnil Bhartiya, we cover the new features CloudCasa by Catalogic announced at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2022 in Valencia. Sathya Sankaran, COO of Catalogic and GM of CloudCasa, says that these features focus on three key themes: expanding cloud awareness, enterprise hardening, and enabling multi-tenancy while delivering backup and recovery capability. To help address these needs, CloudCasa has added role-based access control and support for on-prem isolated object storage.

Sankaran feels that with the fast-moving ecosystem of Kubernetes, just being Kubernetes aware is not enough nowadays. Expanding the awareness to what cloud offers you and being able to synchronize the two is beneficial to Kubernetes’ two key principles, effervescence and elasticity. He discusses what this entails for developers and the benefits they will reap from this increased awareness.

“We have to recognize that most of the Kubernetes installations are running in the public cloud. Just being Kubernetes aware is not enough for Kubernetes solutions. You also have to be aware of where Kubernetes clusters are sitting and that’s predominantly cloud today,” says Sankaran.

Key highlights from this video interview are:

  • Sankaran discusses CloudCasa’s new features and how it is helping developers stay up-to-date with Kubernetes’ fast moving ecosystem. He explains how the new features expand developers’ awareness beyond Kubernetes awareness and explains in detail the new capabilities.
  • Talking to the cloud provider and the Kubernetes ecosystem will forge a cohesion to enable synchronization with the environmental changes as well as bringing consistency between the two. Sankaran explains the three main benefits developers will experience from cloud awareness.
  • Empowering developers to be more independent is one of the fundamental components of Kubernetes. Sankaran explains the benefits of giving developers the right tools to do self-service backup while still enabling multi-tenancy.
  • While a lot of emphasis is being placed on the data protection space, Sankaran believes that even though the market is growing, CloudCasa is the only solution running as a service. He explains why he feels their solution sets them apart from competitors and why their key offerings are unique.
  • The misconception remains that moving to cloud solves all your problems but the reality is that challenges can still occur and small and medium businesses can have a particularly difficult time to get on-board. Sankaran explains why he feels that CloudCasa is helping to democratize cloud for all sizes of businesses.
