CNCF Member Webinar • Jul 1, 2020
Curious about what Kubernetes-native backup is all about? Do you really need backup with Kubernetes? Do you think your Kubernetes environment will stay stateless? Why doesn’t your legacy VM-backup system work with containers?
We will dive into these questions and cover the below seven critical considerations for Kubernetes-native backup.
1. Kubernetes Deployment Patterns
2. DevOps and "Shift Left"
3. Kubernetes Operator Challenges
4. Application Scale
5. Protection Gaps
7. Ecosystem Integration
Using demos with CNCF projects (Kubernetes, kind, CSI), we will show how recent Kubernetes releases allow you to implement a cloud-native backup strategy that will protect your business-critical data in a developer-focused platform. We will also cover the pitfalls of trying to retrofit legacy backup architectures into a cloud-native ecosystem but, more importantly, focus on the benefits of deploying a truly cloud-native backup solution.

…K10 provides greater visibility and at the same time far more simplified control over critical data governance services. Because it effectively abstracts these services from the underlying infrastructure, it helps to alleviate lock-in to specific storage infrastructures and vendors. It does not require any additional storage infrastructure purchases. Its application-centric approach enables finely-tuned automation policies for critical areas such as data retention, data protection and data recovery. At the same time, with Kanister, developers have the ability to drive workflows for their most complex applications.

Kasten isn’t trying to fit a square peg into a round hole by porting enterprise storage or applications into the cloud. Instead they’re leveraging the new stateless applications and management frameworks to deliver traditional storage and data management features to cloud-native apps. And they’re leveraging the wisdom of application developers to create a framework of knowledge they can use. Very smart all around!

One of the biggest unmet challenges associated with building microservices based on containers is managing all the data attached to them. As microservices dynamically appear and disappear, keeping track of what is being used or needs to be made available becomes a significant IT operational headache.
To address that issue, Kasten has developed a K10 platform to dynamically apply policies to data being accessed by containerized applications deployed on top of a Kubernetes cluster.

Firstly, it has its platform offering, called K10, which takes an application-centric view of data management. K10 uses a policy and workload view to define whether or not a set of data needs to be protected, and how. There's an easy-to-understand interface to show operators if workloads are being protected or not, and it automatically discovers new workloads with the same characteristics, and automatically starts protecting them.

Diversity Limited, Ben Kepes • Dec 5, 2017
Ever since Docker popularized the concept of containers, there has been all manner of organizations whose stated aims have been to reinvent a particular part of infrastructure for the new, container-centric world. In Weaveworks case, it’s a case of reinventing networking for containers. For Portworx it’s about storage. For Twistlock it’s about security. These companies, depending on which way you look at it, have either identified a very real hole or jumped onto a bandwagon.

Kasten is a new startup that emerged from stealth today aiming to help companies better manage their data in an era of containerized applications.
While software containers are great at providing a portable, isolated, and lightweight execution environment for applications, they’re not as good at working natively with applications that need to maintain an internal state. Kasten’s software, K10, helps with this by tracking data on a per-container level and allowing customers to set up rules for how it should be managed.
