Here comes TrilioVault 3.0!


Trilio has released TrilioVault 3.0, claimed to be the first of several releases that expand the capabilities of the company’s OpenStack backup and recovery product.

The latest version offers expanded backup target options, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 and Ceph S3; protection of tenant networks and routers via expanded workload capture capabilities; deployment of TrilioVault with built-in high availability (HA); expanded cloud lifecycle management support including Red Hat Director, seamless deployment on Mirantis MCP, and native Ansible support; and new deployment diagnostics GUI.
For Trilio, this release is another step toward providing data protection to OpenStack and KVM users as they build public, private, or multicloud infrastructures.

The company has plans to release additional functionality in the coming months on a rolling basis, including support for Red Hat‘s KVM management product, Red Hat Virtualization.

Support for Both On-Premises and Cloud Storage via S3
The latest version allows you to use Trilio with S3 to: backup to software-defined object storage, including AWS S3 and Ceph S3; build a DR strategy using AWS geo-replication or Ceph replication; and store backups directly to AWS, without the need for a cloud gateway.

Trilio has also achieved Red Hat Ceph Storage (RHCS) 3.0 certification.

This release introduces several new efficiencies that will help you further reduce storage costs, particularly through storing backups directly to S3. You can choose an S3 storage solution that’s cost-effective and flexible enough for your organization’s needs.

Protection of Tenant Networks & Routers
Once you update to TrilioVault 3.0, your backups will now include tenant network topology with no additional effort. That’s it. The entire tenant’s network topology information is automatically included in every snapshot of every workload on a go-forward basis. This ensures the data is there when needed and eliminates the risk of human error in configuring another protection aspect, all without adding complexity.

In a DR scenario, tenants simply choose a point-in-time snapshot and check “restore network topology” as part of a Selective Restore. TrilioVault will recreate the entire tenant private network topology from scratch including connections, exactly the way it was at the time of backup. The network topology information includes networks, subnets, routers, static routes, ports, and floating IPs.

TrilioVault now includes built-in high availability (HA), which means you can choose to deploy a single node or a three-node cluster with HA. For customers with a low threshold for risk, the three-node cluster improves resilience to TVM node failure and underlying host failure, plus this enhancement includes automatic load balancing for better utilization of the underlying hosts.
In the event of a failure, new job runs will resume on other nodes without further interruption or manual intervention.

TrilioVault is HA-ready, even with a single node, which means you can easily expand to three nodes at a later time.
