Why Back Up Kubernetes

Efficiently Scale Cloud-Native Data Protection

As Kubernetes adoption continues to accelerate in the cloud-native era, most organizations are questioning the need to protect their stateful and stateless Kubernetes applications. To keep business running, robust protection and recovery of the entire application – not just the data service – must be addressed at Day 0 to overcome misconfigurations, outages, and security threats that compromise availability.

What is Veeam Kasten for Kubernetes?
Veeam Kasten is a data protection platform that was purpose-built for Kubernetes. It provides enterprise operations teams with an easy-to-use, scalable, and secure system for backup and  restore, disaster recovery,  application mobility, and radical resilience against ransomware attacks. 
What storage does Veeam Kasten require? 
Veeam Kasten supports file, block and object storage both on-premises or in the cloud. Veeam Kasten interfaces with storage via Container-Storage Interface (CSI) as well as direct storage integrations for efficiency. 
What happened to Kasten K10?  Was it replaced?
Veeam Kasten for Kubernetes is the same leading Kubernetes data protection and mobility solution as Kasten K10 with a new name. 
Which Kubernetes services and distributions does Veeam Kasten support?
Veeam Kasten features pre-qualified integrations with leading data sources, including relational and NoSQL systems and with upstream Kubernetes as well as leading managed distributions (e.g., Amazon EKS, Red Hat OpenShift, VMware Tanzu) across public clouds and on-premises locations.
How difficult is it to install Veeam Kasten?
Veeam Kasten runs on your Kubernetes cluster in its own namespace. This installation uses a single helm command. Veeam Kasten also supports marketplace integrations with major Kubernetes distributions that reduce installation and billing to a simple click of a button. For private networks and sites, air-gapped installation is supported. 
Which interfaces does Veeam Kasten support?
Veeam Kasten features a state-of-the-art CLI, an intuitive GUI and a cloud-native API. The graphical dashboard not only gives you an overview of the compliance status of your applications across clusters, but also lets you easily control your data management functions. The capabilities and functions available are based on the login credentials, and there is an easy way to switch between using the graphical interface and kubectl with reusable CLI breadcrumbs. Plus, of course, there is support for dark mode too. 
What security does Veeam Kasten provide?
Veeam Kasten supports multiple user authentication mechanisms, including OIDC, Token, etc. Veeam Kasten also provides fine-grained RBAC so that the right users can exercise the appropriate actions and support multi-tenant environments. Backed-up data is encrypted both at rest and in motion while giving you the ability to bring your own encryption keys. Veeam Kasten protects against ransomware attacks while it runs with a minimal footprint on your cluster, and you can assign fine-tuned access control permissions to Veeam Kasten itself. 
How does Veeam Kasten’s Automatic Application Discovery work? 
Veeam Kasten is natively integrated into Kubernetes to automatically discover all your application components that run on your cluster and treat the application as the unit of atomicity. The application includes the state that spans across storage volumes and databases (NoSQL/relational), as well as configuration data that’s included in Kubernetes objects, including configmaps and secrets. 
Does Veeam Kasten support multi-cluster management? 
Veeam Kasten’s multi-cluster dashboard provides an easy way to get the aggregate and real-time status of critical parameters, including the total number of clusters, policies, applications, etc. Additionally, you can define global policies and selectively apply them to your cluster groups to simplify the management of your backups at-scale through automation.
