Trilio for OpenStack Version 5 provides capabilities which optimize backup operations, improve database performance, and streamline architecture while supporting the latest OpenStack distributions. Key highlights this release include:


  • Migrate VMware VMs to OpenStack: Trilio introduces the ability to migrate VMware Virtual Machines to OpenStack as a fully integrated plugin into Horizon. Users can now create migration plans, bring in VMware workloads, and assign them to tenants/projects in OpenStack resulting in greater speed, scale and control without data loss. 
  • Backup and Recovery Performance Improvement: Trilio for OpenStack Version 5 optimizes the backup creation and recovery process coupled with improved workload queuing and resource management. 
  • Major Storage Optimization Using Ceph: Ceph-based storage benefits from additional optimizations, ensuring optimal backup performance compared to traditional solutions.
  • Support for all Current OpenStack Distributions: Trilio now supports and integrates into all OpenStack distributions, making Trilio the go-to solution for users running various versions of Ansible Playbooks or exploring OpenStack-Helm. As organizations go through upgrade cycles or determine the need to change distributions, know that your applications and data are recoverable. 
  • Streamlined Architecture: Trilio for OpenStack Version 5 is deployed as a container eliminating the need to scale your data protection independently of your cloud. As a fully integrated service, scale Trilio for OpenStack like any other OpenStack service resulting in streamlined operational management.
  • Unified Logging Format: Trilio simplifies log management by unifying logs. This enhancement reduces troubleshooting time and improves overall log management and reporting for OpenStack services.

“Version 5 is a transformative step forward in delivering unparalleled OpenStack backup and recovery solutions. This release isn’t just an update; it’s a strategic move to provide a more efficient, scalable, and integrated data protection solution, enhancing the overall OpenStack experience for our users.”
