Back-up is a sticky market and when players like CloudCasa enter this market, they face an uphill battle against incumbents like Kasten by Veeam, who are seen as pioneers in the space. But what sets CloudCasa apart from such incumbents is that those players are still not delivering back-up as a service, it’s still a Kubernetes application that runs within Kubernetes. “The problem with such an architecture is when your backup system is sitting in the same cluster as your production data, you lose your cluster and backup system as well,” shares Sathya Sankaran, Chief Operating Officer at CloudCasa by Catalogic in this segment of To The Point. Check out the video to learn more about what edge CloudCasa has over other players.
