HYCU Inc. has announced the general availability of HYCU Protégé for Kubernetes. This is the industry’s first native as a Service solution for Kubernetes workloads. The latest as a Service, cloud-native solutions from HYCU provides users with a tightly integrated and application-aware solution to protect, manage, and recover data across physical, virtual, and container environments. While there are many approaches to add container data protection processes and procedures to an organizations’ protection strategy, container-aware and consistent backup have been emerging, until now.
HYCU specializes in multi-cloud data backup, management, migration, protection, and recovery for on-premises and hyper-converged (HCI), Google Cloud, Azure Cloud, and multi-cloud infrastructures. Headquartered in Boston, Mass., HYCU harnesses 25 years of sophisticated IT experience, insights from over one million users, and works with more than 25,000 customers worldwide. The result is alignment with industry leaders and a competitive advantage in the multi-cloud space. HYCU’s flagship products, a purpose-built Data Protection solution for Nutanix, a managed Data Protection as a Service for Google Cloud Platform and Azure Cloud, and HYCU Protégé, a Multi-Cloud Data Protection Solution offer one-click cross-cloud migration, disaster recovery, and consolidated management.
HYCU Protégé’s design and architecture allow for the support of all platforms. The first release includes Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) with other Kubernetes cloud services to follow. The release also offers:
- Automated and instantaneous discovery of applications: Ensuring Kubernetes-based workloads are identified and managed from a single user interface.
- Granular and flexible recovery: Users are enabled to recover an entire application, from individual disks and configuration files.
- Ease of recovery validation with selective cross-cluster recovery: Users have the ability to leverage multi-regions and locations to spin up applications for recovery.
- Simplify Dev/Test and DR with cross-project and cross-regional cloning: Users gain an extra layer of protection from cyber-attacks, erroneous or malicious deletion, and system outages.
In a press statement, Simon Taylor, Founder and CEO of HYCU, Inc., said, “while the use of containers has been on the rise, data protection approaches are still emerging and have not kept pace with the adoption and interest to date. The reason is there were really only two approaches organizations were able to use. They treat containers as a separate workload with separate infrastructure and create a siloed data protection process. Or, they use legacy data protection to just protect the persistent storage alone that only addresses a portion of what is required to keep the workload available. Our belief remains that backup and recovery should be delivered as a Service, leveraging the platform capabilities and should be as powerful yet easy to use regardless of location, be it physical, virtual, or now containers.”
