Kasten Integrates K10 Data Management Platform with VMware vSphere and Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Service
September 22, 2020

Kasten announced the integration of the K10 data management platform with VMware vSphere and Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Service.

As a VMware design partner, Kasten will deliver an easy-to-use, scalable, and secure system for backup/restore, disaster recovery, and mobility of modern Kubernetes applications for VMware users.

"Cloud-native applications built on Kubernetes are growing dramatically, and VMware has doubled down on tightly integrating Kubernetes and making containers a first-class citizen in vSphere," said Gaurav Rishi, VP of Product, Kasten. "The shift to cloud-native microservices has delivered major benefits like scalability, reliability, and agility. However, legacy data management offerings are still stuck with monolithic architectures that are often hardware centric. Kasten K10 addresses that head on, and we are thrilled to work with VMware to meet critical enterprise needs for backup and mobility of modern applications."

Legacy data management solutions do not work in modern, cloud-native application environments. As a result, Kasten has worked closely with VMware to tightly integrate its Kubernetes-native data management capabilities with VMware's Cloud Native Storage (CNS) constructs and First Class Disks (FCDs) to optimize backups with capabilities such as Change Block Tracking (CBT).

"The definition of an application has changed - enterprises today are building modern applications based on a micro-services paradigm, leveraging a variety of technologies including Kubernetes and modern databases. Kasten's K10 is a highly scalable, secure, and easy to use data management platform for modern applications on vSphere. This partnership enhances VMware's partner ecosystem for modern data protection, and supports our customers' digital business and operations goals, regardless of where they are deployed," said Lee Caswell, VP of Marketing, Cloud Platforms Business Unit, VMware.

Kasten K10 offers an enterprise-ready solution for managing data across multiple Kubernetes distributions on vSphere 6.7 U3 (and higher), as well as VMware Cloud Foundation VCF 4.x. K10 provides users a rich spectrum of backup consistency options including crash-consistent, logical database dumps, and coordinated log and replica capture. It also supports multi-layered application capture that integrates with extensible blueprints for NoSQL/Relational modern databases like MongoDB, Redis, and others to give users the freedom of choice across physical infrastructure and Kubernetes environments.
