Build A Cloud Native Operation with Astra

Astra delivers a rich set of application-aware data management functionality for running business-critical Kubernetes applications that include:

  • Protect application data with near instantaneous snapshots.
  • Meet your disaster recovery (RPO and RTO) targets with efficient and secure one-click backup and restore.
  • Migrate/move application and data from one Kubernetes cluster to another with active cloning.
  • View application protection status and app specific data management activity log.

Use Cases

Data protection with snapshots

With Astra you can take 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.

Disaster Recovery with remote backup

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.

Application Portability for cloud bursting
and migration

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.
