Kasten by Veeam has released new Kasten K10 V4.5 Kubernetes data management platform. This new version is aimed at improving the out-of-the-box experience, increasing edge capabilities, and broadening ecosystem support for data services and partner technologies. These technologies assist companies in safeguarding and optimising their Kubernetes investments.
“Current Kubernetes data management tools often require extensive expertise and set up time when first deployed, and lack process automation for managing, monitoring, and troubleshooting within an environment,” said Vaibhav Kamra, chief technical officer, Kasten by Veeam.
“Offering improved capabilities for a smoother out of the box experience and providing additional ecosystem integration helps meet those needs as container adoption increases,” added Vaibhav.
Kasten K10 V4.5 new capabilities include a wealth of innovative features for Kubernetes DevOps teams and administrators:
Rather than forcing customers to rely on out-of-the-box integration with a restricted number of tools, Kasten K10 V4.5 provides a complete set of tools for effectively deploying, managing, monitoring, and troubleshooting Kubernetes deployments. Pre-integrated tools can assist reduce time to market for new deployments and provide you the freedom to choose the finest tools from across the Kubernetes ecosystem to avoid vendor lock-in. Kafka, Apache Cassandra, K8ssandra, and Amazon RDS are now covered in Kasten K10 V4.5.
Kasten K10 V4.5 enables secure and reliable data backup and recovery no matter where it is needed, thanks to Kubernetes, which has emerged as the de facto standard for orchestrating containers in edge settings powered by applications like video streaming, AI, and high-volume retail applications. With the advent of the K3s and EKS Anywhere Kubernetes releases, companies can now protect all edge applications against data loss, corruption, and malicious assaults.
Customers continue to ask for more storage, data services, and Kubernetes distribution partner technologies to be supported. Kasten K10 gives more features and capabilities to a wider range of users by expanding its ecosystem support, de-risking and enriching customer environments while enabling them to take advantage of the newest Kubernetes breakthroughs. Customers may now access and purchase Kasten K10 supported solutions from a larger selection of partner organisations and marketplaces with the latest release.
Kasten K10 V4.5 adds shared Veeam® Backup &ReplicationTM storage repositories to Kubernetes clusters operating on VMware vSphere, extending the value of customers’ existing Veeam investments. Additional storage types, such as Cisco S3260 and HPE Apollo servers, ReFS and XFS formatted block storage, deduplication appliances, and SMB targets, are now supported by this new innovation.
“With Veeam Backup & Replication data path integration added to Kasten K10 V4.5, Veeam customers have a pathway to extend their investments into their Kubernetes environments,” said Danny Allan, chief technology officer, Veeam.
He added, “Users will have better visibility and easier access to a common repository that includes containerized Kubernetes apps, access to Veeam’s portable backup file format for volume content that increases mobility, and more capabilities for enriching their Kubernetes deployments.”
The adoption of Kubernetes in production has increased by 300 percent since 2016, according to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Kasten K10 V4.5 provides mission-critical data management and reduced friction that admins and developers can easily put into production workflows as Kubernetes adoption rises across sectors.
