Kubernetes backup refers to the process of creating a copy of the Kubernetes resources and data to protect against data loss and to ensure business continuity. Backing up Kubernetes resources, such as deployments, statefulsets, and services, is critical to ensure that your applications can be quickly restored in case of a catastrophic failure.
In this article, we will discuss how you can protect EKS by Kasten10 from regional disasters. We will create two EKS clusters and regularly backup the objects configurations of primary EKS to S3 and make an EBS snapshot for persistent volume, so that secondary EKS can import and restore the backup.
AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery (AWS DRS) minimizes downtime and data loss with the fast, reliable recovery of on-premises and cloud-based applications using affordable storage, minimal computing, and point-in-time recovery.
