The latest release, PX-Backup 1.2, works with any storage array or SDS solution that supports the Kubernetes CSI spec, including Pure Storage, Inc. FlashArray and FlashBlade.

Additionally, PX-Backup 1.2 integrates a new usage-based billing model priced at 20 cents/node/hour, making for growing businesses who want the flexibility of a pay-as-you-go model.

To validate this, the company was named a leader in the GigaOm Radar Report for Kubernetes Data Protection for providing “a highly scalable and flexible solution for Kubernetes storage and management that works seamlessly across different on-premises and cloud environments“.

According to 451 Research, 53% of companies have application RPOs of less than 24 hours even for non-critical apps and data – demonstrating the criticality of backups for all enterprise applications. To solve this, the company released PX-Backup, a point-and-click backup and recovery solution for Kubernetes applications.

It provides IT organizations with an end-to-end backup solution for containerized applications capable of managing container data lifecycles, cataloging relevant metadata: improving visibility of data access, and enabling restoration of full Kubernetes applications. PX-Backup delivers multi-cloud availability across both stateless and stateful Kubernetes clusters, supporting major block storage systems like Amazon EBS, Google Persistent Disk, Azure Managed Disks, VMware Storage, Pure FlashArray and any other CSI-compatible storage systems.
