Catalogic launches KubeDR to protect etcd data

“Catalogic Software’s new KubeDR open source software utility protects the Kubernetes cluster data in etcd, an interface where Kubernetes stores configuration data. The etcd data holds information on the state of the cluster, making it useful for rebuilding the cluster. KubeDR also protects certificates and metadata. KubeDR has many features commonly found in backup software, such as data encryption and deduplication, snapshot retention policies and the ability write to any S3 compatible storage.

Data protection vendor Catalogic Software spun off from data management software company Syncsort in 2013. Catalogic ECX copy data management software is its flagship product, but it owns a stake in Poland-based backup vendor Storware, which sells agentless backup for open VMs such as Nutanix AHV, Red Hat and KVM. Catalogic is headquartered in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey.” – read more at TechTarget!
