Kasten’s collaboration with VMware enables enterprise IT and DevOps groups to realize the benefits of a software-centric, Kubernetes data management solution. The K10 data management platform provides backup/restore, application mobility, and DR for vSphere customers with Kubernetes-based applications.
VMware Cloud Marketplace enables customers to discover and deploy validated, third-party solutions for VMware-based platforms – across public, private and hybrid cloud environments. Once validated, partners can publish their solutions for VMware customers across platforms. Customers will be able to access these third-party partner solutions from their cloud environments, while also being able to experience the convenience of features such as notifications, reporting, and analytics.
K10 specifically addresses Day 2 data management challenges for cloud-native applications.
It K10 provides VMware customers with a Kubernetes backup and mobility solution, including:
- Zero-touch Application Backup and Recovery: With its application-aware approach dynamically maps data management policies to the current state of the application running on VMware PKS clusters. This can be accomplished without requiring any developer or CI/CD pipeline changes and K10 is pre-integrated with relational and NoSQL data services.
- Operations and Portability: It enables DR workflows across VMware PKS including cross-region application migration. Managed public cloud Kubernetes clusters are also supported with data conversion between infrastructure formats when needed.
- Enterprise-grade Reliability and Ease of Use: It manages backups at scale through automation and a graphical interface avoiding the need for custom scripting for data management and compliance. Must have authentication and authorization functions like RBAC are natively integrated into the solution along with extensible workflows.
“Kasten is very excited to be a part of the VMware Cloud Marketplace,” said Gaurav Rishi, head of product. “We believe that the pace of Kubernetes applications in production will accelerate further with VMware’s recent Tanzu portfolio releases that make Kubernetes a first-class citizen in vSphere environments.“
“We are pleased to see Kasten K10 available on VMware Cloud Marketplace,” said Ramya Sarangarajan, director within VMware’s cloud services group. “Validated technologies, such as Kasten K10, enable our customers to build, run and manage their applications effectively and efficiently. We’re excited to work with partners such as Kasten to empower customers to derive the most value from their cloud investments.“
