I came to Dehradun for a few weeks so there has been less content from me but not to worry things will resume soon once I am back! December till now is going great in terms of awesome things that the community is doing in the cloud native space. The Log4j Vulnerability has taken over the internet and worried many people. Cloud outages have made people think about why multi-cloud and DR strategy is important. I think for critical businesses and applications its not only important to have a DR strategy but also the time to switch, you can have a LIVE environment and a standby environment with minimum resources and there should only be a minimal changes required (which can also be automated) to do the failover to the standby instance. If you have deep pockets then probably you can have a better DR setup. Recent incidents have proven that you need not bet only on the big three and there are other small players in the market for specific services eg for Kubernetes you have Civo Kubernetes (obvious for me to say as I work here :)) that gives you powerful managed Kubernetes solution at much cheap price so you can build a DR solution there if you do not have tighter integrations with other cloud platform services itself.
That said what are your takes on the Backup and DR strategies? Feel free to talk to me about it.
Check out the awesome content from the community in December so far!
