All Things Kubernetes and Data Management

Welcome to Cloud Native - We're Here to Help

Welcome to Cloud Native - We're Here to Help

I had a wonderful opportunity to present a keynote at this past week’s KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2021 in Los Angeles. I used that time to discuss some of the challenges new Cloud Native users face and what we, as Kasten by Veeam, are doing to help. Read more →
Extending Kubernetes Application Backup and Mobility to the Edge with Kasten K10 V4.5

Extending Kubernetes Application Backup and Mobility to the Edge with Kasten K10 V4.5

Kubernetes is without a doubt the de facto platform for running both stateless and stateful applications in the cloud. Enterprises are becoming increasingly reliant on its ecosystem for business operations — cloud, development and IT operations teams must keep up with the rate of innovation happening on the platform.

Announcing the Kasten Kubernetes Learning Series

Announcing the Kasten Kubernetes Learning Series

Kubernetes adoption has grown rapidly. Some industry reports note that 90% of organizations surveyed are using Kubernetes in some fashion. However, a lack of Kubernetes training  continues to be one of the major challenges to broad adoption. To meet the demand for effective training at all levels, Kasten is offering extensive training opportunities for the most in-demand Kubernetes skills, based on practical, real-world use cases and experience.

Welcome to Kubernetes Korner

Welcome to Kubernetes Korner

We've created an open community forum where we can discuss all things Kubernetes, Data Management, Kasten K10 by Veeam, and all DevOps topics in one place where anyone can contribute, learn, or share. You will see why we decided on this route vs the what seems to be the defacto now to create a discord or slack channel at the end of the post. Read more →
Move Fast and Test in Kubernetes without Breaking Things

Move Fast and Test in Kubernetes without Breaking Things

Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) in application development is an approach that enables developers to make code changes rapidly and reliably, accelerating development lifecycles and getting new applications to market faster. But the underlying assumption is that developers can test on data at different stages of the pipeline.  Herein lies the rub: Historically, fear and risk have prevented development teams from integrating production databases into the development process. Why are they afraid? There are three valid reasons: Read more →
Goodbye to Ransomware: 2-Step Protection for Kubernetes Applications

Goodbye to Ransomware: 2-Step Protection for Kubernetes Applications

While ransomware attacks have had a huge impact on traditional applications for years, Kubernetes environments are also at risk. As the number and magnitude of Kubernetes applications increase, so do malicious attacks on those applications.  Read more →

Perform a Complex Restore of a Blockchain Application in Kubernetes with Kasten K10

Perform a Complex Restore of a Blockchain Application in Kubernetes with Kasten K10

When the piano was invented, musicians noticed that it had become much easier to produce a sound with the instrument. But pianists were expected to play many more sounds than a classic instrument. Complexity was just moving to another place.  Kubernetes makes application deployment easier, yet application features require an increasing number of components and requirements. A good example of this is the IBM blockchain network, in which the trust on the transaction can be distributed between organizations. Read more →
Kubernetes Showcased at VeeamON 2021

Kubernetes Showcased at VeeamON 2021

This week we wrapped up the last fully virtual VeeamON event (hopefully) and announced that next year’s event will be heading to Las Vegas. I think it is very likely the event will become a hybrid one, to enable the growing demand in this space and to view the news and product updates. Read more →
Working with Kubernetes and Terraform Part 3: Installing Kasten using Terraform

Working with Kubernetes and Terraform Part 3: Installing Kasten using Terraform

In this three-part series, I will explain how to use Kubernetes (K8s) and Terraform (TF) together to set up a Kubernetes cluster, manage applications and install Kasten. We will of course keep data management best practices in mind for every step. Installing Kasten in the cluster is also a great example of how Terraform can be used when managing cloud resources outside the cluster. Read more →
