The latest release, PX-Backup 1.2, now works with any storage array or software-defined storage (SDS) solution that supports the Kubernetes CSI spec, including Pure Storage FlashArray and FlashBlade. This gives customers flexibility and choice across any environment, even if they’re not using PX-Store, Portworx’s own container-granular storage engine.
Additionally, PX-Backup 1.2 integrates a new usage-based billing model priced at 20 cents/node/hour. It will help any enterprise to start small and scale their consumption as their usage demands.
PX-Backup provides IT organizations with an end-to-end backup solution for containerized applications capable of managing container data lifecycles, cataloging relevant metadata, improving visibility of data access, and enabling restoration of full Kubernetes applications.
PX-Backup delivers multi-cloud availability across both stateless and stateful Kubernetes clusters, supporting major block storage systems like Amazon EBS, Google Persistent Disk, Azure Managed Disks, VMWare Storage, Pure FlashArray and any other CSI-compatible storage system.
This is the first product announcement from Portworx since they were acquired by Pure Storage for $370m in September. The update gives customers flexibility and choice across any environment, even if they’re not using PX-Store, Portworx’s own container-granular storage engine.
PX-Backup 1.2 will be available by November 27, 2020.
