Kasten by Veeam, a supplier of Kubernetes backup and disaster recovery, today released Kasten by Veeam K10 V5.0, a purpose-built Kubernetes data management platform.

This current edition, which was created specifically for Kubernetes, focuses on giving a comprehensive risk management strategy, improved CI/CD pipelines, and additional ecosystem advancement elements that help to optimize and de-risk Kubernetes investments. All these improvements are aimed at making the Kubernetes community more efficient and safer in cloud-native applications.

Vice President of Products and Partnerships at Kasten by Veeam, Gaurav Rishi stated, “Our latest release remains focused on helping enterprises minimize the financial impact caused by attacks on data and cloud applications. At the same time, we’re also supporting developer needs for backup solutions that not only integrate with the CI/CD tools they use but pave the way for automation to detect and protect applications as they get deployed.  As ransomware attacks continue to remain the highest concern for organizations, a comprehensive risk management strategy to help continuously identify risk, protect data, detect attacks and deliver disaster recovery for cloud-native applications is crucial.”

The following are some of the new features of Kasten K10 V5.0:

Security all over: Improved platform hardening, including KMS integration with AWS KMS and HashiCorp Vault, as well as the ease of use of Kubernetes-native RBAC objects exposed in UI dashboards, ransomware attack detection with AWS S3 or S3-compatible storage supporting S3 Object Lock, data protection policy guardrails, and support for Veeam-hardened Linux repositories with immutability, provide comprehensive threat protection.

Data protection with a shift to the left: fully integrated add-ons for newly launched Amazon EKS Blueprints, Level III certified Red Hat OpenShift Operator with full lifecycle capabilities, new built-in Kanister blueprints for MS SQL and PostgreSQL Operator, as well as a new Blueprint Editor for a more intuitive and quicker workflow and a new Reports Generator for crucial KPIs, have been added to the Operations UX.

A wider ecosystem: Customers can choose from a growing number of solutions throughout the ecosystem thanks to integrations with industry-leading technologies and platforms, such as Red Hat Marketplace, SUSE Rancher Marketplace, VMWare vSphere with Tanzu, and Falco.

CTO at Veeam, Danny Allan, commented, “Cloud native applications are being developed at a pace never seen before, and with DevOps and shift-left principles, application deployment in Kubernetes is proving faster and far more scalable. Yet, at the same time, backing up Kubernetes applications remains a constant challenge. This latest release provides secure backup and recovery for Kubernetes data and applications while eliminating the complexity in deployment and operations for Kubernetes in the enterprise. As more Veeam customers look to leverage Kubernetes, Kasten K10 V5.0’s ease-of-use will be critical to support data protection and backup in their new environments.”

The NEW Kasten K10 V5.0 features demonstrate Kasten’s commitment to Kubernetes users by combining DevOps and shift-left principles, as well as enhanced protection.
