SUSE Rancher ropes in Kasten K10 by Veeam
Kubernetes adoption for DevOps teams continues a meteoric rise in adoption, and in many ways, it has crossed the chasm from a niche to mainstream technology. The latest CNCF Annual Survey released in February 2022 details the massive uptick in Kubernetes adoption in just the past 12-months. According to the most recent State of Cloud Native Development Report, developed for CNCF by SlashData, Kubernetes has demonstrated impressive growth over the past 12 months with 5.6 million developers using Kubernetes today. This represents a 67% increase from a year ago when, adjusting for a change in the question methodology, there were 3.9 million Kubernetes developers worldwide. This group now represents 31% of all backend developers.
Kasten by Veeam is excited to announce the launch and availability of Kasten K10 in the SUSE Rancher Apps & Marketplace. SUSE Rancher is the leading unified, multi-cloud, Kubernetes and platform agnostic management tool in the industry. Today, you can seamlessly deploy Kasten K10 with SUSE Rancher to support three principal use cases: backup and restore, disaster recovery, and application workload mobility across any public cloud, on-premises data center, or edge location.
You can learn more about Kasten K10 and why cloud native backup and recovery is the best way to protect your Kubernetes data and application workloads by reading our white paper, “5 Kubernetes Backup Best Practices.”
