Sopra Steria chose Kasten K10 to solve data mobility challenges for its Kubernetes environments, enabling faster, streamlined development processes.
Using Kasten K10, Sopra Steria can capture the entire application stack and use this data for software testing. By testing new code using production data, the company can more rapidly uncover and address issues, getting features to clients sooner.
“Kasten K10 auto-discovers applications, so we can be confident it’s capturing the full application-to-infrastructure view,” said Jouffroy. “For example, we use Kasten K10 to copy one client’s production environment every Sunday, anonymize any personal information, and hand it over to our developers to play with the data. As a result, we’ve dramatically accelerated how quickly we can innovate.”
Developers can now launch backups near instantaneously, whereas it used to take up to 15 minutes, removing limits on productivity. Since deploying Kasten K10, Sopra Steria has moved to two or more development cycles per day.
Sopra Steria also relies on Kasten K10 to power backup and recovery services for its clients. The solution is helping the company to provide cloud-native security at enterprise scale.
“Kasten K10 plays a key role in enabling us to deliver on our SLAs to clients,” said Jouffroy. “Specifically, it allows us to commit to RPOs of four hours and under for some clients. As a result, we keep client satisfaction high and avoid the financial and reputational damage we would incur in the event of violating SLAs. It also strengthens our cyber-resilience strategy by ensuring we can restore our clients’ business- critical data whenever it’s required.”
