Veeam teams up with Kasten on Kubernetes backup

Veeam Software has made headlines with news of its collaboration with Kasten on backup solutions for Kubernetes containerisation.

As TechTarget’s Paul Crocetti wrote, Kubernetes has become something of a de facto standard in container management – making the Veeam-Kasten partnership a major move in data protection for containerised environments.

“Kasten stands alone in that they were really truly built ground up for container environments,” Veeam CTO Danny Allan [pictured, above] was reported as saying, while Veeam was originally built for virtualisation, since incorporating cloud and physical protection.

Analysts suggest that many organisations will need data protection for both container and traditional applications, soon if not today. Seventy percent of organisations surveyed by IDC report that they are developing for container applications – and it stands to reason that a requirement for data protection will follow.

Veeam and Kasten are both investigating new Kubernetes backup technology as well, with a view to solutions spanning cloud to on-prem virtualisation and Kubernetes workloads inthe enterprise, Crocetti reported in the full article, here.

Veeam won HPE global technology partner of the year awards in 2019 and again in 2020.

“For more than 10 years, Veeam and HPE have had a strategic alliance that is trusted by market-leading businesses across the globe to protect and rapidly recover data, ensure business resilience and reduce risk,” said Jim Kruger, CMO at Veeam.

“Together, Veeam and HPE help safeguard our customers’ data to ensure business continuity.”

Phil Goodwin, research director at IDC, said in a supplied press statement that its analysts had interviewed organisations about combining Veeam data management software with HPE Nimble Storage.

“While they cited a variety of considerations, such as the need to conduct back-ups at scale and complete data recovery activities faster, their decisions boiled down to requiring more effective and robust data backup and recovery activities. Stated otherwise, they had concluded that their previous solutions could no longer meet their business needs,” said Goodwin.

IDC’s related whitepaper, sponsored by Veeam and HPE Nimble Storage, reported that study participants expect an almost 4:1 or 278% return on their investment in the integrated Veeam and HPE Nimble Storage solution set over five years.

Andy Pilkington, CTO at managed solutions provider Keytech, praised the Veeam/Nimble integration.

“Recovery objectives decreased to one hour for all production workloads, thanks to Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots and Instant VM Recovery. Sonoco-Trident meets RTO and RPO every time, giving them confidence that they can meet their service level agreements (SLAs) and maintain business continuity,” he said.

Wesley Evans, hardware solutions manager at US-based healthcare services provider White River Health System, also provided a testimonial. “One of the biggest benefits of using Veeam and HPE StoreOnce is the confidence you gain in your data. We are absolutely certain we can recover in a crisis. That’s a first for us,” he said.
