CloudCasa User’s Guide

Overview

CloudCasa by Catalogic Software® is a user-oriented backup service that is built for protecting Kubernetes, cloud databases, and cloud native applications. As a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, CloudCasa removes the complexity of managing traditional backup infrastructure, while providing the same level of application consistent data protection and disaster recovery that more traditional backup solutions provide for server-based applications.

With CloudCasa’s free service offering, you can protect a virtually unlimited number of Kubernetes clusters with a virtually unlimited number of worker nodes. This includes backing up Kubernets configuration and resource data to CloudCasa storage and protecting persistent volumes (PVs) by using local snapshots. You can also protect a virtually unlimited number of RDS cloud databases using snapshots, including snapshots copied to alternate regions. Retention is limited to 30 days with the free service.

With CloudCasa’s premium service offerings, you get all features of the free service plus the ability to copy PV snapshots off to remote cloud storage. The storage is included in the price of the service, which is based on the amount of data that you protect. Premium services levels offer unlimited retention periods, and also the ability to use SafeLock™ to prevent deletion of recover points before their retention periods have expired.

CloudCasa can store your backup data in two types of storage:

  • CloudCasa managed storage (Available in multiple cloud providers and regions)

  • Public cloud object storage account that you control

    • Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3)® or compatible

    • Microsoft® Azure Blob Storage

You can use security posture review features for Kubernetes clusters and related AWS cloud infrastucture. This makes it a more general-purpose tool for managing the overall cyber reslilience of your cloud native applications. The CloudCasa API is also available for users with premium service plans.

You can sign in to CloudCasa and protect your assets from your web browser.
