Containers’ Backup Strategies

Veeam is proud release a the results of another research study yet, the 2023 Data Defense Trends Report, that is the industry’s largest independent analysis on backup and information protection. The study in this report is fully signifies and independent the complete market – not merely Veeam customers. It was performed by way of a third-party research corporation, with all respondents getting no understanding of Veeam’s involvement.

The Vice President of Item Administration for Kasten K10, Veeam’s container backup solution, loves to say, “Containers are usually eight yrs . old or eight yrs young either, depending on your stage view.” For most in functions and infrastructure, containers may seem like something that must be managed and protected later on. However, 2 nearly,100 respondents from many independent data centers document that containers have previously become a actuality for most organizations.

Considering the left aspect of the graphic beneath, you’ll note that over 1 / 2 of respondents (52%) documented already using containers within production, whilst another 40% consider using containers later on. Conversely, 8% indicate they are thinking about production container utilization, while simply 1% having no programs to run containers later on.

To the proper, we start to see the same information proven in bands representing how big is the respondents’ organizations. And in addition, container usage is more developed in the business segment. Little- and medium-sized businesses, nevertheless, report solid adoption and greater attention even, meaning there’s momentum for containers in creation deployment across all segments of businesses in 2023.

Let’s explore container backup. Below, on the left-hand side, we are able to see that a variety of teams get excited about container protection currently. In fact, this is a four-method tie (between 23% to 26% for every group) between those burning containers in infrastructure and program teams:

 <ul>          <li>          <strong>     Infrastructure groups     </strong>     
 <ul>          <li>     Storage space administrators     </li>     
 <li>     Back-up administrators     </li>     
 </ul>          </li>     
 <li>          <strong>     Platform groups     </strong>     
 <ul>          <li>     Kubernetes administrators     </li>     
 <li>     Program administrators     </li>     
 </ul>          </li>     

On the right-hand, concerning how containers are supported, we also see diversity:

 <ul>          <li>          <strong>     Storage space snapshots     </strong>      are employed by almost half (47%) today, that is similar to VMware protection around 15 years back vSphere. Copying raw storage space blocks is easy, but it might not protect data fully. Snapshots backups are not, and crash-consistent protection isn't the same application-consistent safety.     </li>     
 <li>          <strong>     Alternative party tools     </strong>      focusing on container backups come in make use of by 26%.     </li>     
 <li>          <strong>     Database-level back-up     </strong>      is used by 22%, which might indicate that infrastructure groups have no idea of production usage currently, or that application groups think that other teams cannot properly guard containers.     </li>     
 <li>          <strong>     No want or no information to safeguard     </strong>      is documented by 5%, with 4% indicating that there is absolutely no stateful data within their container use (a view that is frequently proving to become inaccurate). Only 1% declare that containers are usually natively durable , nor require back-up (another assumption that is usually proving to end up being inaccurate). While low at 5% altogether, we expect to notice these responses decline as time passes.     </li>
