Use cases for Robin CNS on AKS
Standard Kubernetes storage across AKS and other Kubernetes distros
Deliver standard storage and data management experience across AKS and other Kubernetes distros. Developers find it easy to automate workflows with standard APIs for storage and data management across platforms.
Back up entire applications on Azure Blob
Protect entire applications (data+metadata+config) with backups to Azure Blob object store. Recover entire applications, including data, with a single command in the event of data corruption or cluster failure.
Application portability across AKS and other Kubernetes
Easily move complex stateful applications among AKS and other K8s distributions on-premise and on public clouds. Moving entire apps across clusters is completely automated by Robin CNS, making it easy to export/import applications with a single command.
Dev/test collaboration across regions
Collaborate across geographies and teams by cloning entire application environments (data+metadata+config) in minutes. This helps free up valuable time across your Dev and QA teams and makes them more productive.
Quick application time-travel
User accidently deleted data? Or just want to see what your data looked at a prior date? Want to checkpoint your entire app before upgrades or new experiments? Robin CNS provides application-aware snapshots to help you quickly rollback to a previous point-in-time.
