OpenShift Commons Briefing on OpenShift API Data Protection OADP with Ceph CSI
October 5, 2020 | by
In this OpenShift Commons Briefing, Red Hat’s Annette Clewett, Dylan Murray, and Raghu Manjunath discuss and demonstrate how OpenShift API Data Protection (OADP) and Ceph-CSI provide a strong foundation for developing a cluster level backup and recovery solution for OpenShift workloads. There are many popular Enterprise backup solution providers planning to deliver their products for OpenShift, building on this OADP API & Ceph CSI foundation.
OADP is a community operator available in OpenShift’s OperatorHub today and exposes the Velero APIs for backup, restore, and scheduling. Ceph-CSI is now capable of creating volume snapshots and this capability is now available in Rook release-1.4 and soon to be released in OpenShift Container Storage 4.6 late 2020. The Velero CSI plugin works with Ceph-CSI and the VolumeSnapshotClass resource to create a snapshot of persistent volumes when a backup is initiated for the application using the persistent volume.
