CloudCasa is a Kubernetes backup-as-a-service for cluster resources, persistent volumes, and cloud databases. It was created to offer a solution when customers’ data started being moved to the cloud at a rapid pace. The shift to the cloud called for new, innovative ways of protecting data. Catalogic had already been in the data protection industry for over 20 years. However, as organizations were replatforming their data sets to be able to optimize the cloud usage, the ecosystem began to shift. Sathya Sankaran, Chief Operating Officer at CloudCasa by Catalogic, feels that there was particularly a gap with Kubernetes and its ecosystem. Sankaran explains further about why Catalogic felt there was an opportunity to create a backup service like CloudCasa and why users doing backups have changed in the ecosystem.
