Public Preview: Regional Disaster Recovery by Azure Backup for AKS

Published date: February 20, 2024

In today's dynamic landscape, safeguarding containerized workloads and application data is paramount. That's why Azure Backup for AKS provides comprehensive protection for your AKS clusters, enabling scheduled backups and seamless restoration in scenarios like Operational Recovery, Accidental Deletion, and Application Migration.

Now, we're excited to highlight a key addition: the Regional Disaster Recovery Capability, available in public preview. With this feature, you can proactively prepare for and mitigate the impact of regional disasters by:

  1. Recovering AKS clusters from backups stored in a secondary region, leveraging Azure Paired Regions, ensuring business continuity even in the face of regional disruptions.
  2. Storing Backup Copies offsite, adhering to the 3-2-1 backup strategy, and having the resilience to restore them in case of tenant compromise.
  3. Retaining data for extended periods to meet compliance requirements in regulated industries, ensuring data integrity and security.

By embracing Azure Backup for AKS, you empower your organization with advanced disaster recovery capabilities, enhancing resilience and ensuring uninterrupted operations. Go ahead and fortify your AKS backup strategy against regional disruptions with documentation available here.
