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 →

Cross-Cluster Application Migration and Disaster Recovery for AWS EKS using Kasten K10

Cross-Cluster Application Migration and Disaster Recovery for AWS EKS using Kasten K10

Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a fully managed Kubernetes service provided by AWS. It's a managed Kubernetes service where you don't have to maintain or create the cluster control plane or underlying infrastructure. EKS runs a cluster control plane across multiple AZs to ensure it maintains high availability and automatically replaces unhealthy instances. It works with different AWS services to provide scalability and security for your application. Read more →
