While containers were originally intended to be short-lived, the reality of enterprise data management meant that application data should extend beyond the lifetime of any single container. Data persistence was added to container infrastructures, creating the need for backup mechanisms to protect container data.
Recent implementations of container technology store application data on the same host as the container. If the container is lost, the application data is lost as well.
