GigaOm analysts ranked Kasten by Veeam in the top quadrant of Kubernetes data protection providers, recognizing the company’s Kasten K10 cloud-native data management platform with across-the-board “exceptional” ratings for all five evaluation metrics: flexibility, scalability, performance, usability and security capabilities.

"[Kasten K10’s] Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) features and centrally managed policy model are well aligned with large enterprise and self-service requirements,” said Joep Piscaer, GigaOm analyst and author of the report. “Its application-aware data management framework, Kanister, has Kasten- and community-provided blueprints for application-consistent backups.”

Piscaer described Kasten by Veeam’s platform as being “extremely easy to use, with a high-quality GUI, consistent APIs and a handy CLI. Kasten K10 is designed to cope with large-scale environments, but it can be deployed in small infrastructures as well.” He also stated that Kasten K10’s new integrations into Veeam Backup & Recovery make it “well suited to protect complex applications spanning container, cloud-native and VM-based deployments at large enterprise deployments.”
