  • Container backup support
    Container Backup Support is a feature of IBM Spectrum Protect Plus that extends data protection to containers in Kubernetes or OpenShift clusters.  Before you can back up and restore persistent volumes that are attached to your containers, you must install and deploy Kubernetes or OpenShift backup support images.

    You can install Container Backup Support in an airgap cluster by using the installation package from IBM Passport Advantage Online. An airgap cluster is any Kubernetes or OpenShift cluster that does not have internet access, and therefore cannot pull container images from a Docker registry. The airgap installation package includes the container images for Container Backup Support. During the installation, the container images are loaded by the docker load command and then tagged and pushed to the Docker registry that is specified in the baas-options.sh file. As a result, the container images can be pulled during the Helm installation. For instructions on downloading and installing the package from IBM Passport Advantage, see Installing Container Backup Support in an airgap environment
