The new col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Hep­tio and Mi­crosoft aims to en­sure Hep­tio Ark de­liv­ers a strong Ku­ber­netes dis­as­ter­recov­ery so­lu­tion for cus­tomers who want to use it on Azure. The com­pa­nies will also work to­gether to make the Ark pro­ject an ef­fi­cient so­lu­tion to move Ku­ber­netes ap­pli­ca­tions across on-premise com­put­ing en­vi­ron­ments and Azure, and to en­sure that Azure­hosted back­ups are se­cure.

The Ark pro­ject pro­vides a simple, con­fig­urable and op­er­a­tionally ro­bust way to back up and re­store ap­pli­ca­tions and per­sis­tent vol­umes from a se­ries of check­points. With the Hep­tio-Mi­crosoft col­lab­o­ra­tion, the two firms will en­sure that or­gan­i­sa­tions are not only able to back up and re­store con­tent into Azure Con­tainer Ser­vice (AKS), but that snap­shots cre­ated us­ing Ark are per­sisted in Azure and are en­crypted at rest.

“I’m ex­cited to see Hep­tio and Mi­crosoft de­liver a com­pelling so­lu­tion that sat­is­fies an im­por­tant and un­met need in the Ku­ber­netes ecosys­tem,” said Brendan Burns, dis­tin­guished en­gi­neer at Mi­crosoft and cocre­ator of Ku­ber­netes.

It will also help man­age dis­as­ter re­cov­ery for Ku­ber­netes cluster re­sources and per­sis­tent vol­umes.
