Relatively recently, Kubernetes has enabled multi-cloud portability for certain stateless applications. However, moving a stateful applications from one cloud to another remains a challenge. This newest update to the Robin application automation software platform offers an elegant solution to this challenge.

Robin’s approach takes advantage of well understood and commonly used backup and restore methodologies to create a three-step process. First, the customer creates an application-level snapshot that captures all metadata, configuration, and data at a certain point in time. This snapshot can be taken of an existing application running on any of the supported clouds. Second, the customer “backs up” the snapshot to a Robin managed repository with a single click. Third and finally, the application can be “restored” to not just the cloud the snapshot was taken on, but any supported cloud. It’s an elegant and efficient solution. Users and developers can continue working in the languages and environments they are comfortable with, and then simultaneously backup and export the application to other clouds with just a few commands.

At time of writing the Robin software platform supports the big three of AWS, MS Azure, and Google Cloud. VMware is also supported.
