Redstor a Data management, and SaaS protection company has introduced a new service aimed at changing the way how managed and cloud service providers (MSPs and CSPs) handle Kubernetes installations on AWS. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes (Amazon EKS), a managed container service for handling applications in the cloud or on-premises, has been introduced to the firm’s offering, allowing partners to scale client backups and eliminate the need for multiple, ununified solutions.
Backups have traditionally not been built for modern, container-based applications, necessitating service providers to use separate Kubernetes solutions to back up not only apps but also configurations, according to Redstor. The company hopes to integrate such processes with its new extension, removing the need for disparate solutions to be bolted together.
According to Redstor, services providers will benefit from the ability to quickly restore a Kubernetes environment by injecting data back into an existing cluster for fast resolution of ransomware, accidental or malicious deletion, or misconfiguration while managing multiple accounts with a single solution designed specifically for cloud partners.
Redstor’s backup empowers users with easy scalability and ongoing maintenance, unlike other extremely sophisticated services that need error-prone scripting. There’s no necessity to move between interfaces. All the features give MSPs a better chance to achieve large margins quickly at scale, stated Redstor’s chief product officer, James Griffin.
