About this event

Kubernetes Disaster Recovery with Ark
It’s 3am. Your pager is beeping. Your Kubernetes cluster is down. Don’t panic!  In this talk, I’ll describe a variety of disaster scenarios you may encounter. We’ll arm you with the knowledge you need to overcome them. Whether you’re a systems administrator, application developer, or end user, after this talk you’ll walk away with a thorough understanding of Kubernetes disaster recovery, including:

• Strategies for Kubernetes

• Which components to back up vs recreating from scratch

• Back up and quickly restore your cluster applications, workloads, and persistent volumes using tools such as Heptio Ark
