Deploying Multicluster Day 2 Operations with SUSE Rancher, Fleet, and Kasten K10
You’ve probably heard of Veeam, which IDC just named as tied for first in data replication and protection market share, and part of that momentum and market share is coming from the Veeam cloud native, Kubernetes-focused offering, Veeam Kasten K10.
The Veeam team minding Kasten has been working closely with the SUSE team minding all things cloud native here (think SUSE Rancher, Longhorn, K3s, Harvester, etc.) and recently they sat down with Bastian Hofmann, Field Engineer for Kubernetes at SUSE, to get a walk-through on some of the challenges around multi-cluster deployment, app management, and how “Fleet” from SUSE (which comes preinstalled with SUSE Rancher) can maintain an application’s deployment and lifecycle across hundreds or even many thousands of clusters.
Check out this Veeam blog by Adam Bergh, Cloud Native Technical Partnerships, which features an excellent demo from Bastian showing the deployment of Kasten K10 seamlessly and consistently across a large set of Kubernetes clusters — with ease, with Fleet.
This is a great introduction to how Fleet enables large, distributed organizations to deploy a world-class tool, like Kasten K10, across an expansive, diverse and dynamic Kubernetes environment. Check it out and get your scale on!
