Why you need Kubernetes native data protection

Easy, Scalable Security for Your Kubernetes Data

Kubernetes has become the fastest-growing infrastructure platform and is on track to be the next enterprise platform of choice. 

While it provides high availability and scalability for application services, these benefits do not extend to your data, which makes Kubernetes application data protection critical.

Kasten K10 provides enterprise operation teams with an easy-to-use, scalable, and secure system for backup & restore, disaster recovery (DR) and application mobility. With Veeam, teams achieve radical resilience against ransomware attacks.
