In conjunction with KubeDR, the company’s new Catalogic Labs is launched to support new projects including open source initiatives and backup/DR innovations

WOODCLIFF LAKE, NJ – January 15, 2020 — / — Catalogic Software, a developer of innovative data protection solutions, today announced the introduction of its Catalogic open source utility, KubeDR, built to provide backup and disaster recovery for Kubernetes cluster configuration, certificates and metadata. Kubernetes is the fastest growing and most popular platform for managing containerized workloads in hybrid cloud environments. Catalogic is also launching cLabs to support new products, open source initiatives and innovations, such as KubeDR.

Kubernetes stores cluster data in etcd, an interface that collects configuration data for distributed systems. While there are solutions focused on protecting persistent volumes, the cluster configuration data is often forgotten in existing industry solutions. There is a market need to provide the specific requirements of backup and support for Kubernetes cluster data stored in etcd. Catalogic’s new KubeDR is a user-friendly, secure, scalable and an open source solution for backup and disaster recovery designed specifically for Kubernetes applications.

Additional KubeDR features include:

  • Backup cluster data in etcd to any S3 compatible storage
  • Pause and resume backups
  • Clean up older snapshots (based on retention setting)
  • Restore etcd snapshot and certificates

“Kubernetes has evolved into the de facto standard for deploying applications at scale, especially in the world of cloud and cluster computing. In response to market demand and to give back to the open source community, here at Catalogic, we are introducing KubeDR – a backup and disaster recovery solution specifically for etcd data in a Kubernetes cluster,” said Sathya Sankaran, COO of Catalogic Software. “We are debuting KubeDR together with Catalogic Labs, cLabs, created to support our ongoing open source initiatives and other backup/DR innovations. It’s an exciting time at Catalogic, with product growth and several enhancements on the horizon.”

KubeDR, the initial entry in the Catalogic Labs, provides backup and DR for etcd and certificates enabling seamless and efficient cluster rebuilds, on-premises or in the cloud. Find out more about KubeDR at
