People are utilizing the provisions in the cloud creating a new set of users compared to in the past where this would have been handled by an IT team.

Catalogic aims to democratize backups for a workload making them easier for DevOps engineers and developers to manage. Sathya Sankaran, Chief Operating Officer at CloudCasa by Catalogic, explains that users can get a basic form of protection from CloudCasa for free, and then if they want backups then they can upgrade. Sankaran explains further what sort of circumstance you may want to use the basic protection package for and when you may want to upgrade. For further information, watch this video.
