Enterprises all over the world are seeing more cloud-native applications deployed on Kubernetes. This is making Day 2 services such as backup and mobility for Kubernetes applications a pain point for some IT organizations. Kasten K10 v2.0 has been battle-hardened to solve this very pain point as organizations grapple with an easy and reliable way to handle business continuity requirements in this cloud-native environment.
Kasten provides a backup and recovery solution on Microsoft Azure that keeps the application as the unit of atomicity while simplifying data management operations and maintaining consistency. Kasten K10, not only operates within the Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service but can also migrate Kubernetes-based applications from on-prem environments to Azure Kubernetes Service.
“An increasing number of operations teams are looking for peace of mind to automate and tackle issues like data loss and data sovereignty as the number and scale of Kubernetes applications multiply. We are excited to announce the Kasten K10 offering on Microsoft Azure to help our customers tackle these challenges of Kubernetes backup and mobility”, said Gaurav Rishi, Head of Product at Kasten.
