In this episode of TFiR Let’s Talk recorded at the KubeCon in Detroit, Swapnil Bhartiya sits down with David Safaii, CEO at Trilio, to discuss the challenges companies face with building resilient applications and how Trilio is helping solve these issues, including the general availability of Continuous Restore.

Key highlights of this video interview:

  • Trilio has been in the cloud-native world for a long time, historically protecting very demanding environments in the telco, financial services, and government sectors. However, Safaii would like to elevate the conversation from just backup to application resiliency and what that means in terms of disaster recovery, ransomware protections, and other security considerations.
  • While Kubernetes provides high availability, managing state and being able to recover are critical. Safaii says the conversations they are having with people have progressed from just getting to the point of production to having issues and needing solutions.
  • Continuous Restore, previous in Tech Preview, is now generally available. It enables you to take a single point of time and replicate that amongst multiple clouds and storage environments to have one source of truth. He explains the challenges of having different parts of the organization work with the same data.
  • Besides full integration with AWS Red Hat OpenShift Service (ROSA)Azure Red Hat OpenShift (ARO), and the hyperscaler marketplaces, Trilio has also integrated with Red Hat ACM. Safaii notes the trend towards deploying smaller clusters, which will compound itself as we move further toward the edge. He discusses how Trilio can be used as a policy to protect the clusters.
  • Trilio is the most integrated ISV to the Red Hat cloud platform. As organizations look to migrate and move off of VMware or other VM-based environments, they can take that journey to OpenShift Container Platform (OCP).
  • Safaii believes that Trilio will start moving down the path of policy-based declarative application resiliency.
