Growing use of containers means more business for Kasten

By

Interest in containers means interest in container backup, and that means interest in Kasten K10.

"There's a lot of excitement around Kasten," Kasten by Veeam president and general manager Niraj Tolia told iTWire.

Shortly after Veeam Backup and Replication version 11a ships in the third quarter, Kasten K10 integrations will start arriving, starting with K10 being able to work with any Veeam repositories. That includes tape repositories, which are "still important at scale." he said.

Veeam administrators will also gain visibility of the use of K10 on VMware.

It seems likely that further integrations will be provided further down the track.

But there is a commitment to continuing to offer K10 as a separate product in order to meet the needs of cloud-native customers, he explained.

Given the expected big growth in the use of containers over the next few years, this is the right thing for customers and Veeam alike, Tolia told iTWire.

Financial services is one of the sectors where this strong growth is already happening, but around half of the use of containers in that industry is on-premises, he observed.

But all verticals are interested, it's just that some are moving sooner than others.

Containers are highly relevant to edge computing, said Tolia, as they are inherently lightweight. Consequently they are showing up in industries such as retailing and hospitality.

One example in the latter category is cruise ships, where communications limitations and costs mean backups have to be done locally, and then pushed to the cloud when the ship is docked.

In addition, "Kubernetes has become the de facto platform" for 5G.

Kasten has to make edge backup flexible for customers, so they can choose where to store and move their data, whether they want to reuse older storage or adopt modern. Kubernetes-native storage such as MinIO.

"The edge is important to our customers, so it is important for us," said Tolia.
