Kubernetes has now established itself as the de facto orchestrator for containerized workloads. As organizations ramp up their Kubernetes adoption, it is important to be cognizant of the inhibitors that can impede their journey.

NetApp’s experience as a leader in data management has enabled us to identify the unique challenges that are a part of adopting Kubernetes in the enterprise.

Learn about Astra, NetApp’s end-to-end solution for application-aware data management that manages, protects, and moves data-rich Kubernetes workloads in both public clouds and on premises.

Key takeaways

  • Astra Control is NetApp's answer to protect Kubernetes workloads and is offered as a fully managed service on clouds (AWS, Azure, GCP), as well as on premises (as a self-managed solution).
  • Protecting Kubernetes applications requires a Kubernetes-native solution that handles application state in addition to the data it generates. 
  • Astra enables you to clone entire applications across namespaces, back them up to object stores automatically, and quiesce applications before taking point-in-time snapshots.
