NetApp, the leader in cloud data services, selected Kubesafe and five other startups for the sixth cohort of the NetApp Excellerator, the company’s flagship startup accelerator program. The startups were chosen based on their alignment with data-driven technologies.
As part of the program, NetApp offers technology mentoring, access to NetApp cloud-oriented data technologies, as well as networking opportunities with potential investors, partners, and customers.
Swami Ramany, a Kubesafe founder and CEO, described how applications are moving from traditional virtualized platforms into container-based, cloud-native infrastructures. This transition brings up new challenges with protecting the data at the core of these applications. Kubesafe software leverages the efficiency and replication capabilities built in to modern storage solutions to protect cloud-native application data.
