Convirture Backs Up OpenStack Cloud

Convirture is now out with a new backup solution for OpenStack cloud environments using the KVM hypervisor.

The software-based Convirture Backup offers the promise of a policy-based, automated backup system for OpenStack cloud users. OpenStack itself has multiple storage projects that Convirture can plug into. Arsalan Farooq, CEO of Convirture explained to Datamation that backup destinations can be an OpenStack Swift object store, OpenStack Cinder block storage or the OpenStack Glance image service.
