Key Capabilities

Single Command Install Cmd
Single Command/Click Installation
Kasten K10 runs on your Kubernetes cluster in its own namespace. The installation uses a single helm command. Kasten K10 also supports marketplace integrations with major Kubernetes distributions to make installation and billing a simple click of a button. For private networks and sites air-gapped installation is supported.
Intuitive Management Interface
A modern, intuitive graphical dashboard not only gives you an overview of the compliance status of your applications across clusters but also lets you easily control the data management functions. The capabilities and functions available are based on the login credentials and there is an easy way to switch between using the graphical interface and kubectl with reusable CLI breadcrumbs. And, of course, there is support for dark mode too!
Automatic Application Discovery
Kasten K10 is natively integrated into Kubernetes to automatically discover all the application components running on your cluster and treating the application as the unit of atomicity. The application includes the state that spans across storage volumes, databases (NoSQL/Relational) as well as configuration data included in Kubernetes objects such as configmaps and secrets.
Multi-Tenancy with Integrated Security
We know security is top of mind for you and it definitely is for us! Kasten K10 supports multiple user authentication mechanisms such as OIDC, Token, etc.. Kasten K10 also provides fine-grained role-based access control (RBAC) so that the right users can exercise the appropriate actions and support multi-tenant environments. Backed up data is encrypted both at rest and in motion while giving you the ability to bring your own encryption keys. Kasten K10 runs with a minimal footprint on your cluster and you can assign fine tuned access control permissions to Kasten K10 itself.
Multi-Cluster Management
Kasten K10 multi-cluster dashboard provides a simple way to get the aggregate and real-time status of critical parameters including the total number of clusters, policies, applications, etc. Additionally, you can define global policies and selectively apply them to your cluster groups to simplify the management of backups at scale through automation.
