Backup and Recovery of Red Hat OpenShift Virtualization & KubeVirt

Kubernetes Data Protection and Management Supporting KubeVirt.

Backup and Recovery of KubeVirt and OpenShift Virtualization VMs using Trilio for Kubernetes

Kubevirt is an open-source virtualization solution designed to enable virtual machine management within Kubernetes clusters. It allows users to run virtual machines (VMs) as Kubernetes resources, which can be managed using Kubernetes tools and APIs.

With Kubevirt, users can create, start, stop, and delete VMs from Kubernetes YAML files or via the Kubernetes API. It integrates with popular container orchestrators, like OpenShift and Kubernetes, providing a single platform for managing both containers and VMs.

This applies the same why for Red Hat OpenShift Virtualization.
OpenShift Virtualization is an enterprise-grade virtualization solution that allows users to run virtual machines (VMs) on the Red Hat OpenShift Kubernetes platform. It is built on top of Kubevirt, an open-source virtualization solution that enables VM management within Kubernetes clusters.

Trilio for Red Hat OpenShift Virtualization and KubeVirt is the backup and intelligent recovery solution to protect and recovery your workloads anytime anywhere with all the known trilio features and capabilities.

Trilio Protects VMs

KubeVirt backup is an important aspect to consider for businesses that rely on virtualization technology to operate their IT infrastructure. Backing up VMs running on KubeVirt ensures that critical data and applications are protected against data losshardware failures, or cyberattacks. Our comprehensive backup solution for KubeVirt can help organizations recover quickly from unexpected outages or disruptions, minimizing downtime and ensuring business continuity.

Additionally, backups can also be useful for testing and development purposes, allowing organizations to clone VMs and experiment with new configurations without affecting production environments.

Backup and recovery

Schedule point-in-time backup and recovery, and automate full and incremental backups with predefined policies, while selectively restoring VMs and applications to the same cluster or OpenShift or KubeVirt running anywhere. Backups can be VM, Label or Namespace scoped.

Disaster recovery

Use Trilio and its groundbreaking Intelligent Recovery capabilities to build intelligent hybrid or multi-cloud disaster recovery strategies, and quickly recover on same cluster-same ns, same cluster-different ns, different cluster-any ns etc.


Whether it is moving application and data from non-production to production environments or between Kubernetes clusters or clouds with Trilio, yield better total cost of ownership (TCO) or tighter data control—regardless of your infrastructure.

Application mobility

Build multiple testing environments using Trilio backups from a single target location to develop and validate code and push changes to production.

Fleet Management

In combination with Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes (RHACM) you can define and orchestrate policy-based data protection on clusters at scale in hybrid cloud, multi cloud, and edge deployments.

Workflow Alignment

This feature allows backup/recovery of VMs using the same process, workflow as if backing up Containers running in Kubernetes/OpenShift.
