In this release, we've grown the team and continue to welcome new members to our community. We're excited to introduce new features such as multiple Backup Storage Location credentials, restore progress reporting, and restoring Kubernetes API groups by priority level, as well as many user and developer experience improvements. We're thrilled to have such significant contributions from the community and we're proud to deliver Velero 1.6.
The community high tide raises Velero to its 1.5 release. Announcing support for backing up pod volumes using restic without annotating every pod, DeleteItemAction- a new plugin kind, Restore Hooks, and much more. It is with that pride and excitement we ship Velero 1.5.
In the Velero 1.4 release, we introduced support for CSI snapshotting v1beta1 APIs. This post provides step-by-step instructions on setting up a CSI environment in Azure, installing Velero 1.4 with the velero-plugin-for-csi, and a demo of this feature in action.
Riding a wave of community contributions, Velero 1.4 introduces beta CSI support, improvements to backup progress tracking, and more. A major focus for 1.4 was addressing issues raised by the community, and we are proud to be able to deliver improvements that matter to you.
Velero 1.3 includes improvements to CRD backups and restores, multi-arch Docker images including support for arm/arm64 and ppc64le, and many other usability and stability enhancements. This release includes significant contributions by community members, and we’re thrilled to be able to partner with you all in continuing to improve Velero.
With this release, we’ve focused on extracting in-tree cloud provider plugins into their own repositories, making further usability improvements to the restic integration, preparing for the general availability of Kubernetes custom resource definitions (CRDs) by adding a structural schema to our CRDs, and many other new features and usability improvements.
This post demonstrates how Velero can be used on Kubernetes running on vSphere to backup a Stateful application. For the purposes of this example, we will backup and restore a Cassandra NoSQL database management system.
For this release, we’ve focused on improving Velero’s restic integration - making repository locks shorter lived, giving more visibility into restic repositories when migrating clusters, and expanding support to more volume types.
