The advent of cloud computing has transformed the Information Technology industry beyond recognition. Not long ago, monolithic business applications ran on dedicated hardware in enterprise-owned data centers. The upkeep of these applications against software and hardware refresh cycles, coupled with scaling these applications as businesses continue to grow, has been a constant battle for IT staff.
Cloud computing has alleviated a majority of these concerns. This new breed of next-generation applications is built for web-scale leveraging the platform abstraction that cloud platforms provide. Although the delivery and consumption of cloud computing have dramatically improved, a new wave of application management challenges has emerged, such as; monitoring, tracing, troubleshooting, root cause analysis, data management, and data protection. Applications have scaled from a single server to now 100s of servers.
A new approach and technology are needed to address business continuity and disaster recovery strategies for environments that have adopted and run cloud-native applications. Trilio's mission is to address the data protection challenges of cloud applications that traditional solutions have failed to address. TrilioVault by Trilio is a backup and recovery as-a-service tool for cloud platforms, including OpenStack, RHV, and Kubernetes.
