The Emergence of Docker Containers and How to Protect Data in these Environments
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA – March 4, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Docker is a relatively new container technology that is getting more popular by the day—particularly since the release of Docker 1.0 last summer. Enterprises are adopting Docker at a quick clip, shifting their server applications from virtual machines (VMs) to containers in part because the latter use shared operating systems that increase their efficiency in terms of system resources. The platform makes it possible to operate many more applications on a server’s existing infrastructure; ZDNet reports that a Docker system can offer up to six times the number of server application instances that are possible using VMs only on the same hardware, and there have been more than 11,000 applications on Docker since the company’s founding in 2010. As more organizations transition to the cloud, this provides cloud service providers and enterprise users with a significant opportunity for easing management complexity and containing costs.
Because of these trends, we believe the innovative platform will continue to be highly disruptive in the years to come. With a history of innovation, Asigra just announced that with the release of Version 13, Asigra Cloud Backup™ software now provides seamless operation with Docker Containers. Asigra’s new capability to address the rapid deployment of applications on the open source platform has the distinction of becoming the first enterprise backup and recovery solution on the market to support containers. While Amazon and Microsoft Azure both support Docker, there was previously no backup solution for these and other environments leveraging the platform.
Asigra’s announcement is good news for IT administrators for several reasons. First, the open platform makes it possible to build, ship, and run applications, unchanged, on laptops, datacenter VMs, and cloud platforms, which can be protected using Asigra’s platform agnostic data protection suite.The end-to-end enterprise-class solution also eliminates the need for disruptive software agents on backup targets for simple management, better performance, and greater security. What’s more, the platform provides a high degree of automation, including autonomic healing for recovery assurance and policy-based optimization that simplifies operations in multi-platform physical, virtual, cloud, and mobile environments.
When used with Docker Containers, Asigra’s new offering can increase efficiencies and lower costs for service providers and enterprises. Combined with the Asigra Recovery License Model® (RLM), organizations benefit from immediate cost savings and long-term operational efficiencies. Organizations can use Docker to move containers from one cloud to another, or from a cloud to on-premise or vice versa. In concert with Docker, Asigra provides flexibility for cloud-to-cloud, cloud to on-premise, and on-premise to cloud uses. For maximum deployment flexibility, Asigra Cloud Backup can be installed within a container or be operated from virtual, physical or cloud environments.
The open source community is getting increased legitimacy and support from customers looking to deploy solutions such as Docker Containers with their existing virtualized environments to benefit from the economies of scale. As container technology moves toward even greater adoption, Asigra’s support for Docker leads the industry with full-scale data protection to help organizations protect their investments. Yotta280 is proud to help introduce the latest features in Asigra Cloud Backup Version 13 to market.
