Veeam Backup for Kubernetes

"We've created an open community forum where we can discuss all things Kubernetes, Data Management, Kasten K10 by Veeam, and all DevOps topics in one place where anyone can contribute, learn, or share. You will see why we decided on this route vs the what seems to be the defacto now to create a discord or slack channel at the end of the post."

7 Reasons to Adopt a Kubernetes-Native Backup Solution

  1. "It accommodates Kubernetes deployment patterns."

  2. "It aligns with “Shift-left” development."

  3. "It simplifies operations."

  4. "It accommodates multicluster scalability."

  5. "It closes protection gaps."

  6. "It bolsters security. "

  7. "Integration with the cloud native ecosystem."

With the new integration released as part of Veeam Backup & Replication™ v11a, Kasten K10 customers can leverage existing investments in backup infrastructure.

  • Kasten K10 includes additional location profiles that can target VMware Veeam Backup & Replication v11a repositories for Kubernetes leveraging VMware based persistent volumes.

  • Ability to view Kasten K10 backups that are stored in repositories directly in the Veeam Backup & Replication UI.

  • Additional storage option for K10-based backups provides flexibility of deployment for users of VMware-based Kubernetes Persistent Volumes

  • Additional restore options are available to K10 backups such as the ability to mount and copy files using Veeam’s file level recovery features

  • Visibility of K10 backups

  • Kasten K10 Integration with Veeam Backup & Replication™ Repositories*

  • Enterprise customers are taking advantage of the flexibility and power of containers with Kubernetes being the predominant player in the market.

  • Providing backup, recovery and visibility into container backups is often a challenge due to fragmented solutions caused by data protection solutions not offering native protection.

  • NOTE: This functionality will be enabled in a Kasten K10 build to be released after V11a. As such, Veeam Backup & Replication™ v11a is “KASTEN READY.”

"Kasten is now a part of Veeam. Together, we offer enterprise operations teams an easy-to-use, scalable, and secure system for Kubernetes backup and application mobility with unparalleled operational simplicity." - (Source)

"Kubernetes is application-centric, so a Kubernetes-native backup is essential. Attempting to use traditional backup methods puts you at risk of data loss or corruption, because legacy solutions fail to capture the application as a whole — including all stateful and stateless components." - Should Kubernetes be STATEFUL or STATELESS?
