VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension introduces version 2.2.1 with the feature improvements for Kubernetes Persistent Volumes Backup & Restore, User role management and OSIS.
Kubernetes Persistent Volumes Backup and Restore
With the latest features, the Cloud Provider administrator can backup and restore Tanzu local in their organization’s Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Cluster multi-cloud environment. The protection and backup can be started through Container Service Extension (CSE) cluster within the OSE portal. Note: This function supports both metadata and PVC backup. Object Storage Extension 2.2 installs Velero with Kopia plugin into the customer Kubernetes cluster for backup and restore.
Provider Access to S3
This new feature offers autonomy for tenants to manage Provider admins access to OSE tenant portal. Tenants Administrators can configure the settings and disallow, and allow read-only or full permissions for providers to jump to tenants’ organization and imitate tenant administrators’ role.
Version 2.2.1 also introduces enhancements and improvements for Object Storage Interoperability Service (OSIS) which offers IAM user support, tenant onboard and bucket synchronization.
