For Kubernetes, it provides enterprise operations teams with a scalable, and secure system for backup and restore, DR, and mobility of Kubernetes applications. This release incorporates company’s Cloud-Native Transformation Engine to enhance the automation and reliability of data migration in Kubernetes environments.

Cloud-native is a critical part of the Kasten DNA, and we’ve developed the transformation engine to optimize the benefits of Kubernetes application backup and mobility at scale,” said Gaurav Rishi, head, products. “Our Kubernetes-native data management capabilities have created a new standard for data security, reliability, and performance in the backup and DR market. This has been instrumental in our customers’ efforts to protect data and accelerate workload migration.

Traditional backup and DR solutions do not work in today’s cloud-native environments resulting in scalability issues and data loss. K10’s Cloud-Native Transformation Engine introduces capabilities to capture both underlying data and metadata for application backup and mobility in Kubernetes environments. These include parallel data transfers, lock-free algorithms, pluggable encryption and compression, deduplication, and smaller fault domains that ensure backup efficiency and increased reliability for cloud-native applications and infrastructure.

The engine also introduces metadata capabilities, such as resource transforms that reduce the manual effort, complexity, and risk associated with migration of applications, data, and workloads between Kubernetes environments. This critical capability simplifies backup and restore and DR, enabling enterprises with improved flexibility and adaptability by taking captured data and making it suitable for use in a different destination than where it originated.

We initially started using Kasten K10 for backup and DR, but as its new capabilities for data migration were added: we’ve been able to apply it to successfully migrate hundreds of projects from not just OpenShift 3.11 to OpenShift 4.2 but also across storage systems,” said Michael Courcy, architecte DevOps, Sopra Steria Group SA. “K10’s migration and intelligent transform capabilities delivered a powerful but simple, reliable and secure solution that matched our scalability needs as we made major updates to our infrastructure.”
