Kasten - Use Case: Backup and Recovery

Use Cases

Backup and Recovery

Automated backup and recovery of all your production
stateful Kubernetes applications

K10 in Action

scenario
Accidental or Malicious Data Loss

What K10 does
Recover to a known good state of your application following a data outage that may be caused by accidental deletion or overwriting of application data or by malicious activity such as a security breach or unauthorized data manipulation.

scenario
Infrastructure or Hardware Failure

What K10 does
While many modern storage solutions and data services provide built-in redundancy and protection against isolated hardware failures, robust backup is still needed to protect non-replicated databases and against broad failures.

scenario
Application Misconfiguration

What K10 does
Repair badly misconfigured applications by restoring application artifacts and configurations to a known good state.

scenario
Compliance Audit Environment

What K10 does
Comply with audit requests that require reproducing an application environment configuration and state, including underlying data, from a given period in the past.

Key Features

Complete application protection

Automatically capture and protect an entire application stack including resource definitions, configuration, and underlying data.

Coordinated application recovery

Always restore a consistent copy of your entire application. Properly orchestrate and order the restore of data, resource, and configuration components.

Policy-based backup automation
and monitoring

Manage backups at scale through dynamic policies that apply to auto-discovered applications. Monitor data management compliance and easily take corrective action.

Application-specific protection

WWhen volume-level protection is not sufficient, extend the workflow with a Kanister blueprint to apply application-specific operations.

Unified backup catalog

All data protections artifacts and metadata are automatically managed and maintained for all backup and recovery workflows.

Role-based actions and self-service

Use Kubernetes roles to delegate data management privileges to application operators. Enable self-service backup policies and restore operations.
