KubeSafe builds software that provides application-centric backup, recovery, cloning, and migration for Kubernetes. KubeSafe software creates recovery points with the images, configuration, and persistent data needed to return applications to their state at a particular point in time. You can use recovery points to move applications to different clusters or different clouds, and to run analytics or tests against copies of your production data. KubeSafe is a part of NetApp Excellerator Cohort 6.

Technology can revolutionize the way we learn any skill. How?
Kubernetes is a newly adapted compute platform with significant benefits compared to the virtual machine-based computing. However, the ecosystem for Kubernetes is still evolving, thus making it one of the difficult platforms to adapt to. Generally it needs IT skills that has deeper knowledge in Kubernetes to reap the right benefits. Often these skills are challenging to find in the market. However, Kubesafe is built to be operated by IT generalist and one needs to have a minimalist knowledge of Kubernetes to operate.
