In particular, as more stateful applications get deployed on cloud-native platforms, the requirement for data management functions such as backup and recovery, disaster recovery, and application mobility is becoming extremely pressing. As a part of our research when building K10, a cloud-native data management platform to meet the needs mentioned above, we have discovered that there is a fundamental impedance mismatch between solutions built for VMs vs. Read more →
