Wasabi Technologies and Kasten by Veeam Partner to Deliver Best-in-Class Backup and Data Protection to Kubernetes Users

Users benefit from cost-effective, scalable, and simple storage and backup capabilities with immutability for cloud-native applications in Kubernetes

December 8, 2021

BOSTON, MA, December 8, 2021 — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today announced that it has partnered with Kasten by Veeam®, the market leader for Kubernetes backup and disaster recovery, to provide enterprise operations teams with an easy-to-use, scalable, and secure system for backup/restore, disaster recovery, and application mobility for Kubernetes. Purpose-built for Kubernetes, Kasten K10 data management platform combined with Wasabi’s hot cloud storage enables users to access data in milliseconds with industry-leading data protection and immutability against accidental or malicious backup corruption.

As more enterprises adopt microservice architecture and containers, Kubernetes has become the fastest-growing infrastructure software providing high availability and scalability of application services. However, these benefits do not extend to customer data, and therefore data and application protection are a critical priority for Kubernetes workloads as enterprises must extract data from the Kubernetes environment and store it securely. Whether accidental or malicious, preventing catastrophic data loss is increasingly challenging, especially when defending against ransomware attacks, mitigating the impact of human error or ensuring the chain of custody and regulatory compliance of data.

Now with Wasabi’s affordable, fast, and reliable hot cloud storage on-demand, Kasten customers can treat their data as hot data, shortening upload windows and quickly accessing their data for faster restore times. Wasabi is 80% less expensive than traditional cloud providers, and there are no fees for egress or API requests.

“As Kubernetes becomes the de facto application system for enterprises everywhere, data storage, backup and protection have never been more important,” said David Boland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Wasabi. “By partnering with Kasten by Veeam, Kubernetes users everywhere will have instant access to their application data with industry-leading backup and immutability that provides a faster, affordable, more secure, and most importantly simple experience for users.”

Kasten streamlines application protection with the simplicity and portability that IT and Operations teams need to operate cloud-native applications that use multiple data services and are instantiated across multiple clusters, regions or clouds. K10 protects backups with end-to-end encryption and includes S3 Object Lock immutable storage support from Wasabi to add a new level of data protection, preventing malicious attacks like ransomware or accidental operations that can lead to significant data loss or alteration.

“Data protection is a top-of-mind concern for organizations across the globe as with the growth in cyber-attacks like ransomware,” said Gaurav Rishi, VP of Product, Kasten by Veeam. “Our partnership with Wasabi offers a solution with instantly accessible data and object-level immutability to deliver the simplicity, security and affordability our customers need to protect and optimize their Kubernetes investments.”
