Kasten has announced the general availability of Kasten K10 v2.5. Purpose-built for Kubernetes, K10 provides enterprise operations teams with an easy-to-use, scalable, and secure system for backup and restore, disaster recovery, and mobility of Kubernetes applications. The new release incorporates Kasten’s Cloud-Native Transformation Framework  to enhance the automation and reliability of application and data migration in Kubernetes environments. 

“Cloud-native is a critical part of the Kasten DNA, and we’ve developed the transformation framework to optimize the benefits of Kubernetes application backup and mobility at scale,” said Gaurav Rishi, Head of Products, Kasten. “Our Kubernetes-native data management capabilities have created a new standard for data security, reliability, and performance in the backup and disaster recovery market. This has been instrumental in our customers’ efforts to protect data and accelerate workload migration.”

Kasten K10’s Cloud-Native Transformation Framework introduces new capabilities as part of its Data Transformation Engine that captures both underlying data and metadata for application backup and mobility in Kubernetes environments. These include parallel data transfers, lock-free algorithms, pluggable encryption and compression, advanced deduplication, and smaller fault domains that ensure backup efficiency and increased reliability for cloud-native applications and infrastructure. 

K10’s new Application Transformation Engine introduces additional capabilities, such as intelligent resource transforms that reduce the manual effort, complexity, and risk associated with migration of data and workloads between Kubernetes environments. This critical capability simplifies backup and restore and disaster recovery, enabling enterprises with improved flexibility and adaptability by taking captured data and making it suitable for use in a different destination than where it originated.
