How CloudCasa Helps With Data Protection, Data Migration, And Disaster Recovery In AWS EKS


Moving Kubernetes applications to the public cloud helps developers, DevOps and IT Ops to focus mostly on adding business value to their applications, while also ensuring scalability and high availability. However, it doesn’t magically solve all challenges for them that come with Kubernetes applications. In this episode of TFiR Insights, Ryan Kaw, Head of Global Sales at CloudCasa by Catalogic, talks about some of the misconceptions around moving K8s applications to the cloud, especially in terms of high data availability, data migration, data restore and more.

“There are tons of people moving their data into the cloud, and it does provide high availability, but there’s a difference between high availability and high data availability. Uptime doesn’t translate into the elimination of downtime,” said Kaw.

Martin Phan, Field CTO – North America, gave us a demo of CloudCasa to visually explain how CloudCasa helps developers and DevOps teams.

Key highlights from this video interview are:

  • There is a misconception that just because data is in the cloud that it is protected. Although the cloud does provide high availability, this does not mean downtime is completely eliminated. Kaw explains how data loss can still occur and what the repercussions of it can be. He explains how leveraging data protection in the environment can help tackle this problem.
  • CloudCasa’s SaaS solution helps customers get started quickly, from sign-up to registering clusters and installing it. Kaw explains what sets CloudCasa’s solutions apart from other key players and how it is beneficial to its users in the Kubernetes space.
  • Kaw discusses some of the use cases where cross-cluster and cross-account restores in the same cloud are needed. He details the three main reasons why customers may need to move their data from production over to their development environment for test and development purposes.
  • CloudCasa’s central management enables customers to see wherever their environment is, be it on-premises or in the cloud, as well as, with different clusters having different cloud providers. Kaw explains CloudCasa’s motivation behind offering support wherever you are going to regardless of which cloud provider is being used.
  • Martin at CloudCasa provides TFiR with a product demonstration to show how their solution works in greater detail.
