The number of available options for application deployments and maintenance, whether on on-premise or in cloud environments, spells great opportunities. But as microservices, Kubernetes serverless platforms and other options are thrown into the mix, issues of how to manage the enormous complexity involved obviously emerges. A key concern for DevOps, among others, is creating best practices and processes for backups and disaster recovery (DR) in this context.
During a podcast Alex Williams, founder and editor in chief of The New Stack, hosted; Gou Rao, co-founder and CTO of Portworx, gave an overview of the complexities involved, as well as emerging DR and backup practices.
“People are still more in learning mode. Now, people have deployed their applications and they’re dealing with real-world problems operationally, and not necessarily issues, but best practices about ‘how do I do this?’” Rao said.
