Clone and migrate apps

Contributors netapp-bcammett ebarcott Download PDF of this page

Clone an existing app to create a duplicate app on the same Kubernetes cluster or on another cluster. Cloning can help if you need to move applications and storage from one Kubernetes cluster to another. For example, you might want to move workloads through a CI/CD pipeline and across Kubernetes namespaces.

When Astra Control clones an app, it creates a clone of your application configuration and persistent storage.

Steps
  1. Click Apps.

  2. Click the drop-down list in the Action column for the desired app.

  3. Click Clone.

  4. Clone details: Specify details for the clone:

    • Keep the default name and namespace, or edit them.

    • Choose a destination compute for the clone.

    • Choose whether you want to create the clone from an existing snapshot or backup. If you don’t select this option, Astra Control creates the clone from the app’s current state.

  5. Clone Summary: Review the details about the clone and click Clone App.
