Astra Control offers stateful Kubernetes workloads a rich set of storage and application-aware data management services powered by NetApp’s trusted data protection technology.
Astra Control is an application-aware data management solution that manages, protects and moves data-rich Kubernetes workloads in both public clouds and on-premises. Astra Control enables data protection, disaster recovery, and migration for your Kubernetes workloads leveraging NetApp’s industry-leading data management technology for snapshots, backups, replication, and cloning.

Astra Trident provides orchestration and data connectivity for Kubernetes applications. It is a Kubernetes Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver and is deployed as a free open source offering from NetApp.
Trident integrates natively with Kubernetes and its Persistent Volume framework to seamlessly provision and manage volumes from systems running any combination of NetApp’s ONTAP (AFF/FAS/Select/Cloud/Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP), Element Software (NetApp HCI/SolidFire), plus our Azure NetApp Files service in Azure, Cloud Volumes Service for AWS, and Cloud Volumes Service for GCP.
Relative to other Kubernetes provisioners, Trident is novel in the following respects.
It is the first out-of-tree, out-of-process storage provisioner that works by watching events at the Kubernetes API Server, affording it levels of visibility and flexibility that cannot otherwise be achieved.
It is capable of orchestrating across multiple platforms at the same time through a unified interface. Rather than tying a request for a persistent volume to a particular system, Trident selects one from those it manages based on the higher-level qualities that the user is looking for in their volume.
With Astra you can take application-aware snapshots for local data protection. If you accidentally delete or corrupt your data, you can revert your applications and associated data to a previously recorded snapshot within the same Kubernetes cluster.
With Astra you can take a full application-aware backup of your application and state which can be used to restore your application with its data to a different Kubernetes cluster in the same or a different region addressing your DR use-cases.
With Astra you can move an entire application along with its data from one Kubernetes cluster to another, no matter where the clusters are located.
Available as both a fully managed service or as self-managed on-premises software, Astra Control offers on-demand access that scales from the smallest applications to the largest enterprise workloads. Astra Control provides data portability with your choice of Kubernetes.
Entrusted by the Fortune 1000 and leading cloud providers for mission critical data availability, performance and security, based on NetApp’s 25 years of data protection technology.
Easily backup and restore stateful Kubernetes applications. Migrate applications across clusters and clouds and create working application clones.
Tailored backups, app-consistent snapshots, and data encryption based on your desired protection configuration.
Unified console for data management operations and catalogue of any application running on any Kubernetes cluster.
Clear visualization of data protection status, activity logs, and simple data protection management.
