FREMONT, CA: Kasten by Veeam, the market leader for Kubernetes backup and disaster recovery, has declared that it has been named a Leader and Outperformer in the "GigaOm Radar for Kubernetes Data Protection." GigaOm analysts ranked Kasten in the first position among other Kubernetes data protection providers, recognizing K10, its Kubernetes data management platform, for its scalability and performance. The report highlighted K10's concentration on cloud-native data protection across hybrid as well as multi-cloud environments, underscoring the importance of its deep integration with Kubernetes in delivering disaster recovery, industry-leading backup, and application mobility for both large- and small-scale infrastructures.

"Kasten is a clear leader in the Kubernetes Data Protection market - its level of innovation is ahead of any of its direct competitors. Its Kubernetes-native data management solution, K10, is one of the most advanced and offers unparalleled ease of use, scalability, and efficiency, which is critical for large scale, multi-cloud enterprises," stated Enrico Signoretti, Senior Data Storage Analyst, GigaOm. "Kasten's recent acquisition by Veeam is another key point of differentiation that puts it above the competition. The combined power of Kasten and Veeam solutions will be a major enabler for enterprises transitioning from monoliths to containers and microservices."

The GigaOm Radar for Kubernetes Data Protection was published after the launch of K10 v3.0, Kasten's first major platform update since it was acquired by Veeam, the leader in backup solutions that enable Cloud Data Management.

"Cloud-native environments become increasingly complex as enterprises expand Kubernetes deployments to accommodate greater scale and more applications. Data management, protection, and security also become more complex in these scenarios," said Niraj Tolia, President and General Manager, Kasten. "GigaOm's latest Kubernetes Data Protection report underscores the importance of flexible, multi-platform, and readily adaptable capabilities to mitigate this complexity. Kasten is proud that K10 has been selected as the top solution for simple, scalable, and secure data management with the flexibility modern enterprises need."
