Cloud Native Applications vSpeaking Podcast

vSpeaking Podcast Ep 124: Velero

VMware recently acquired Heptio for the impact their open source projects have on the cloud native ecosystem. The main projects are Sonobuoy, Contour, Gimbal, and Velero (formerly known as Ark) This week on the Virtually Speaking Podcast we welcome Carlisia Campos to discuss Velero, the cloud native disaster recovery and data migration tool for Kubernetes applications. The Kubernetes community is finding new uses for Velero, from migrating applications and namespaces between two clusters to cloning namespaces for ephemeral developer environments.

Stay up to date with the project by following it on Twitter (@projectvelero), through GitHub, our public Google Group, or on the Kubernetes Slack.

*Velero means sailboat in Spanish, which is consistent with our nautical theme. While the name Ark alluded to backup and recovery, the new Velero name signals that the project is capable of so much more.

A special thanks to Myles Gray and Cormac Hogan for guest co-hosting this episode.
