Why VM-based Data Management Doesn’t Work in a Cloud-Native World

We are often asked why traditional data management platforms that have worked extremely well for virtualized environments have failed to keep pace with the requirements of applications deployed on container orchestration platforms such as Kubernetes. 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 →
