Astra hands-on workshop: Explore Kubernetes-native application management with NetApp Astra

Astra and Kubernetes Series

Session 2 of 2


As Kubernetes adoption accelerates, protecting entire app workloads carries a lot of importance. App deployers require a one-touch, Kubernetes-native solution that can preserve stateful applications and all dependent resources.

Astra is NetApp's application-aware, data-management solution; purpose-built for Kubernetes.

Learn how Astra can enable Kubernetes app developers to handle data protection, disaster recovery and migration workflows directly through the platform layer on-prem and in the cloud. This hands-on session walks you through a number of daily operations that Astra handles and helps attendees understand the steps involved in consuming Astra for their on-prem Kubernetes clusters.
