Protecting containers

Container Backup Support is a feature of IBM Spectrum® Protect Plus that extends data protection to containers on Kubernetes and Red Hat® OpenShift® clusters. Kubernetes is a system for orchestrating containers across clusters of hosts.

To protect persistent volumes, namespace-scoped resources, and cluster-scoped resources in the Kubernetes or OpenShift environment, first create service level agreement polices that specify the backup frequency and retention period. Then, create jobs for backup and restore operations.
