Backblaze and Kasten by Veeam partner to offer expanded Kubernetes disaster recovery and business continuity

Backblaze, Inc., a storage cloud platform provider, has announced a new partnership with Kasten by Veeam, a leader in Kubernetes data protection, to enable companies to easily backup and restore Kubernetes applications using its B2 Cloud Storage service.

The partnership means companies managing backups of their Kubernetes containers with Kasten software can now designate the Backblaze B2 platform as their storage destination to:

  • Back up and restore production stateful Kubernetes applications.
  • Safeguard application data from ransomware encryption with Object Lock for immutability.
  • Support regulatory compliance and/or corporate disaster recovery mandates.

“Kubernetes containers are the standard for many organizations building, deploying, and scaling applications with portability and efficiency,” said Nilay Patel, VP of Sales and Partnerships at Backblaze. “Backblaze and Kasten together offer a compelling solution to support these organizations’ business continuity needs with set-it-and-forget-it ease and cost effectiveness.”

The joint solution is fully scalable at enterprise grade and organizations only pay for storage used, with no data retention penalties for deleting past backups.
