The truth to be told, data protection has not captured too much mindshare in the OpenStack community.
Some argue that OpenStack was originally intended to serve only born in the cloud apps, referring to ephemeral, stateless workloads that are designed to be terminated and respawned frequently. Their data is stored to a back-end which is assumed to be protected.
In reality, businesses, academia and service providers are deploying OpenStack for mixed workloads with both cloud-born and legacy applications, spanning traditional databases through eCommerce to stateful VNFs. They need to minimize business disruption when a dataset is corrupted, a VM is deleted, a software upgrade goes bad, or they encounter an infrastructure disaster.
Learn from industry experts with first class OpenStack deployments. Hear their different views about cloud data protection requirements, and the future of stateful applications in a container based environment.
Data protection is a mandatory business requirement, the lack of which may hinder advancing an OpenStack project into production.
- How severe is this problem?
- What comprises a good solution?
- How is the industry handling it?
- Watching this trend, is the container community heading down the same path with stateful containers ?
