Application Data Protection as a Service for OpenStack


Mission Statement

To protect the Data and Metadata that comprises an OpenStack-deployed Application against loss/damage (e.g. backup, replication) by providing a standard framework of APIs and services that allows vendors to provide plugins through a unified interface

Open Architecture

Design for multiple perspectives:

  • User: Protect App Deployment
    • Configure and manage custom protection plans on the deployed resources (topology, VMs, volumes, images, ...)
  • Admin: Define Protectable Resources
    • Decide what plugins protect which resources, what is available for the user
    • Decide where users can protect their resources
  • Vendors: Standard API for protection products
    • Create plugins that implement Protection mechanisms for different OpenStack resources
