#1 Kubernetes Data Protection

As cloud native adoption continues to explode, Kubernetes has become the fastest-growing infrastructure platform and is on track to be the next enterprise platform of choice.

While Kubernetes provides high availability and scalability for application services, these benefits do not extend to your data, which makes Kubernetes application data management critical.

Kasten K10 provides enterprise operation teams with an easy-to-use, scalable and secure system for backup restore, disaster recovery (DR) and application mobility. With Kasten by Veeam, teams achieve radical resilience against ransomware attacks.

Kasten K10 protects against ransomware attacks while it runs with a minimal footprint on your cluster, and you can assign fine-tuned access control permissions to Kasten K10 itself.
How does Kasten K10’s Automatic Application Discovery work? 
Kasten K10 is natively integrated into Kubernetes to automatically discover all your application components that run on your cluster and treat the application as the unit of atomicity. The application includes the state that spans across storage volumes and databases (NoSQL/relational), as well as configuration data that’s included in Kubernetes objects, including configmaps and secrets.
Does Kasten K10 support multi-cluster management? 
 Kasten K10’s multi-cluster dashboard provides an easy way to get the aggregate and real-time status of critical parameters, including the total number of clusters, policies, applications, etc. Additionally, you can define global policies and selectively apply them to your cluster groups to simplify the management of your backups at-scale through automation.
