Trilio for Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes (MOSK)

Enterprise-Grade Hybrid Cloud Data Protection


Mirantis OpenStack (MOSK)

Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes is a virtualized infrastructure as a service (IaaS) on a flexible Kubernetes foundation which provides you the power of public cloud and the time-tested reliability of OpenStack—all built on a flexible and resilient foundation of Kubernetes, putting you back in control of your cloud.

Whether your workloads are restricted to on-premises data centers or you’re battling out-of-control public cloud costs, private cloud virtualization is a crucial piece of your infrastructure puzzle.


Trilio offers a unique solution leveraging the power of containers to simplify the deployment and management of an entire Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes (MOSK) environment. Trilio is the only vendor out there offering backup, recovery, disaster recovery (DR), migration, and cloning solutions specifically designed for use in Mirantis containerized OpenStack environments. 


In combination with Mirantis Kubernetes Engine (MKE), Trilio provides comprehensive protection against any potential threats or disruptions to customer workloads. It offers world-class features, such as automated backups (on demand or scheduled) and full data protection across multiple sites or clouds, allowing customers to easily migrate their applications between different environments if needed. Additionally, Trilio also provides advanced DR capabilities such as site failover testing, which helps ensure that customers will be able to quickly recover from disasters without significant downtime or data loss.

  • Observe and manage fleets by leveraging Mirantis LENS 

Use Cases

Backup & Recovery 

With point-in-time backup and recovery, you can schedule automated incremental backups according to pre-defined policies or on-demand. This means that only the changes made since the last backup will be captured, reducing the time and storage space required for backups.



One of the main benefits of cross-cloud Kubernetes migration is the ability to migrate to a new cluster, regardless of the cloud infrastructure. This means that you can optimize your application and data performance and achieve better total cost of ownership (TCO) by selecting the cloud provider that best meets your business needs.


Disaster Recovery 

To ensure the continuity of operations in the event of a disaster, it is essential to be able to quickly recover any Kubernetes application. Building a Disaster Recovery (DR) plan can facilitate this process by allowing for the easy selection of backups from various repositories, specifying namespace mappings, and reconfiguring the captured data and metadata across multiple applications simultaneously. 


Application Mobility 

One way to expedite CI/CD pipelines is to construct multiple test and development environments, utilize production data to validate code, and seamlessly introduce changes into production. By implementing these strategies, organizations can enhance the efficiency of their software development process, leading to faster release cycles and improved product quality. Trilio seamlessly integrate into these processes.


Ransomware Protection & Recoverability 

To support zero trust architectures and align with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cybersecurity framework, it is crucial to have comprehensive protection and recoverability measures in place. Key capabilities for achieving this include application-centric approaches that utilize encryption and immutability. By adopting such measures, organizations can improve their security posture and mitigate the risks associated with cyber threats.


Continuous Restore

Continuous Restore is a feature that allows organizations to establish a "cross-cloud" infrastructure fabric, ensuring that data is continually replicated on multiple clouds simultaneously, irrespective of their heterogeneity. This capability enables access to the same data, acting as a single source of truth for disaster recovery, blue/green deployments, and production environments across different cloud types. The benefit of this approach is that the recovery time objective (RTO) is reduced to a matter of seconds, enhancing the overall resilience of the system.
