OpenStack Data Protection with TrilioVault

Trilio has partnered with Canonical Ubuntu to deliver our native backup and recovery solutions as part of BootStack, Canonical’s fully-managed OpenStack private cloud solution. As part of this partnership, Trilio worked closely with the Canonical team to develop a tight integration with the platform, as well as a custom Juju Charm for easy deployment and management.

Our flagship product, TrilioVault, enables Canonical to provide backup-as-a-service to their end users. Bootstack users can log into their Horizon dashboard as they normally would, define workload and VM backups within the policy guidelines set by their administrator, and restore those workloads where they need them on-demand.

About the Partnership

TrilioVault is the only OpenStack-native backup and recovery solution and a the partner of choice for Canonical-based OpenStack clouds. TrilioVault empowers Canonical’s end-users with self-service protection and recovery of not just data, but entire workloads within their cloud environment. That means any provisioned users can rapidly and reliably replicate or restore their own workloads on their own schedule, without any help from centralized IT.

Learn more about this partnership in this interview with Trilio’s CEO, David Safaii, and Canonical’s Program Director, Arturo Suarez.

We partner with companies around the globe as part of our mission to give you control over backup and recovery within your clouds. As part of this program, we work with all major OpenStack distributions, including Canonical Ubuntu.

TrilioVault’s OpenStack-Native Data Protection

For any organization planning or using a production Red Hat OpenStack cloud, data protection is critical to reducing the risk of data loss. Unfortunately, when OpenStack was first released, there were no options for cloud-native backup and recovery. That’s why Trilio built a software-only solution that is specifically designed for OpenStack clouds and adheres to the principles of cloud: multi-tenancy, self-service, and scalability.

So what does that mean? Unlike all the hardware-centric legacy backup solutions that were designed in the days when mainframes were king, TrilioVault is focused on distributing management and control of cloud backups to individual users. Regardless of the size of the cloud, with Trilio, each tenant of your cloud has the ability to log onto the Horizon dashboard, choose a data policy, and — in a couple of clicks — back up their entire workload. But that’s only half the battle–TrilioVault also gives those users the ability to restore their environment to a specific point-in-time from the same interface, without any help from centralized IT.

Recover Any Point-in-Time in a Single Click

Because we’re tenant-driven and self-service, there’s a lot that each individual user within your company can do to improve Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO), all from within the Horizon dashboard or via Trilio’s rich set of APIs.

  • Captures data + entire workloads, not disparate configurations and settings
  • Incremental forever backups
  • Agentless & lightweight
  • API-driven
  • Trusted by large Fortune 500 companies and small MSPs alike
  • Store snapshots in a variety of storage environments including NFS, Swift, and 3rd party arrays
  • Point-in-time restoration of synthetic full images
  • Effortlessly spin up workloads, including applications along with its OS and configurations
  • Restore to current, new, or public clouds
  • Multi-tenant & end-user driven
  • Self-service via Horizon
  • Linear, infinite scale
  • Downloadable, software-only solution

Trilio’s Juju Charm

Juju Charms are sets of scripts for deploying and operating software. With event handling built in, they can declare interfaces that fit charms for other services, so relationships can be formed.

The Trilio Data Mover Juju Charm enables the automated creation and placement of Trilio Data Movers on the OpenStack control nodes, eliminating the need for agents and scaling automatically with your cloud.
