Hands-on Demo: What’s New in Kasten K10 V4.0

by Brian Beeler

Kasten and its K10 Platform have been around for about four years, primarily offering data protection for Kubernetes. The demand for protecting these emerging workloads was growing so fast that Veeam acquired Kasten. The net result is an increasingly integrated offering that addresses both virtualization and container data protection. Kasten keeps a rapid development cycle, launching K10 v4.0 at the end of April. Updates focus on three key points: security, ease of use, and expanding ecosystem support.

Kasten K10 V4.0 Updates

Improving security for containers is a major focus for K10. In the V4.0 update, Kasten is the first to deliver native Kubernetes ransomware protection. The lynchpin is support for immutability, which offers protection from ransomware, malicious insider attacks, or accidental deletions. Even better, Kasten enables cross-cloud configurations, so that the main cluster can operate in Google Cloud for instance, while immutable copies are sent to AWS.

What's New in Kasten K10 V4.0

Kasten has enacted application-centric policies that enable authorized users to create Kasten K10 policies in an application’s namespace for protecting only that specific application. They have also refined multi-cluster support with advanced automation capabilities aimed at simplifying backup and restore.

In ecosystem news, Kasten announced new integrations including HPE Ezmeral Container Platform, Nutanix Karbon, Red Hat OpenShift, Microsoft Azure Stack, and backup to NFS targets. On top of this, there are new partnership certifications.
