Innovation – that’s the end goal. Everyone wants to innovate new technologies that drive progress and revenue. But coming up with a new product or service that provides value and meets expectations for an exceptional customer experience quickly and at scale is a formidable challenge – one that Red Hat solves with its OpenShift platform.

“Red Hat began talking about hybrid cloud about 10 years ago,” said Zohaib Khan, Red Hat’s Lead for NA Partner Ecosystem, during a recent webinar hosted by Kasten by Veeam. “At first, we were talking mostly about applications that would run in a virtual environment, especially on virtual machines or on-prem infrastructure. What we have seen in the last 10 years is a transition to cloud hyperscalers.”

According to Khan, many customers have legacy applications that are still running on-prem, and they want to deploy cloud-native applications with microservices that allow them to utilize workloads and services like AI, ML, analytics, and serverless. “Hybrid cloud brings all these pieces together,” he said.

It’s no wonder, then, that Hybrid adoption is on the rise – 63% of organizations are already using a hybrid infrastructure, and of those who have not yet adopted a hybrid strategy, more than half are planning to within the next two years, said Khan. Hybrid delivers the agility to create and deploy new code faster, securely connect operations with development, and adopt new global delivery models.

Red Hat developed the OpenShift Container Platform as a hybrid cloud platform-as-a-service built around Linux containers, and orchestrated and managed by Kubernetes on a foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. As a turnkey platform that’s readily usable in production, OpenShift brings added value features to complement Kubernetes, and enables customers to deploy applications in an agile, flexible environment at scale. 

However, solving the challenges of day 2 operations is also critical. To that end, Red Hat has partnered with Kasten by Veeam.

 

Solving the Pain Points of Day 2 Operations

On Day 2, developers face a host of operational challenges. For instance, how do you implement seamless backup and recovery, and data mobility across clusters? How do you manage SLAs for scalability and performance, and data governance for infrastructure, version control and security? And finally, how do you guarantee data security and availability?

To address these pain points, OpenShift customers need data management tooling that meets four key criteria:

  1. Kuberenetes native: Customers need tools that understand the Kubernetes native API and provide automation and workflows in Kubernetes native environments. They don’t want to learn new tooling or have to work with legacy tools that were built for protecting traditional applications. 
  2. Multi-layered consistency: Tooling must provide consistent data and application resources capture to create consistency, guarantee the availability and recoverability of apps, and guarantee that every piece of their complex cloud native apps can be recovered successfully.
  3. Freedom of choice: In an open source ecosystem, freedom of choice is crucial. Developers want complete deployment flexibility and not be locked into any one way of doing things. 
  4. DevOps speed and scale: Shift-left environments and secure self-service capabilities are needed to ensure maximum agility and speed, as developers innovate new apps with OpenShift.

As it turns out, Kasten K10 meets all of these requirements:

  • Build for Kubernetes: Kasten K10 is purpose-built for Kubernetes using cloud native architectural principles.
  • Security everywhere: Support for RBAC, OIDC, Token Auth, IAM and Industry-standard encryption is built-in.
  • Rich ecosystem: Kasten offers extensive support across the entire stack, enabling OpenShift users to select the best tools or infrastructure.
  • Ease of use: Aligning with Red Hat’s philosophy, Kasten K10 also provides a state-of-the-art multicluster UI, cloud native architecture and API, so it’s easy to install and extend.

Importantly, because Kasten K10 is OpenShift-certified, customers can lean on support from either vendor, whenever needed.
