Kubernetes Security Posture Review, Organization Support, and Cross-Cluster Restore
Catalogic Software continues to make great strides with its cloud native backup-as-a-service platform CloudCasa™. On February 7th we announced the availability of a number of major new features, including:
Security Posture Review
Keeping your data and applications safe is about more than just backups. CloudCasa now allows users to perform a security posture review on their Kubernetes clusters, and also on their related AWS cloud infrastructure. We provide this capability using a curated collection of best-of-breed open-source security tools. Results are stored and provided right in the UI under the new Security tab.
Kubernetes Cross-Cluster Restores
Users can now browse and map the available storage classes in the source and destination cluster when restoring. When performing cross-account Kubernetes restores in AWS, the system will now automatically handle changing volume IDs for PVs. Additionally, when creating an EKS cluster on restore, CloudCasa now allows customization of the IAM role, security group, VPC group etc. to be used in the new account.
Selective Restore of Kubernetes Resources by Type
When doing a restore of a Kubernetes cluster, you can now select exactly which types of resources you would like to restore. In the restore wizard you can select from discovered resource types or enter them manually. The default is to restore all resource types as before.
This allows multiple user logins to share access to an account and the resources within it by creating an organization. You can set your organization name and invite additional users to join it. A user can belong to multiple organizations, but can only have one at a time active in the UI. Basic role-based access control (RBAC) support is included, with more advanced RBAC coming soon.
Azure Blob Storage
When we released the Bring Your Own Storage feature in December, we promised that support for user-supplied Azure blob storage would be coming soon. Now it’s here!
Updating agents can be a drag, and not having the latest agent can prevent you from using the latest CloudCasa features. So we’re happy to announce that the CloudCasa Kubernetes agent has been re-designed so that it can now update itself automatically.
CloudCasa was named a winner of the TMC 2021 Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award!

This On-Demand webinar will cover how CloudCasa, a fast mover in the GigaOm Radar Report for Kubernetes Data Protection, addresses the key criteria and how it is adapting to multi-platform, multi-cloud, multi-team, and self-service use cases across the entire enterprise.
Read this blog – We’re officially more than halfway through winter here in the northern hemisphere, and although that famous Pennsylvania groundhog Punxsutawney Phil has just predicted six more weeks of cold and snow, we have some good news that we think helps make up for it. We’re announcing a major new release of CloudCasa features!
