Kubernetes is gaining steam, with 36% of respondents running more than 50% of their business-critical apps on Kubernetes (K8s). As we projected in the Techstrong Research 2023 cloud-native trends report, tool maturity and adoption will accelerate enterprise K8s use and application modernization. Backup, restore and disaster recovery capabilities remain vital for enterprises to protect critical application data platformed on Kubernetes.

Techstrong Research polled our community of DevOps, cloud native, cybersecurity and digital transformation readers and viewers to take their pulse on Kubernetes backup and data protection trends. Despite the clear momentum for Kubernetes adoption, there isn’t a consensus on the best approach to cover backup and recovery for all platforms and distributions.
