K10 Overview

The K10 data management platform, purpose-built for Kubernetes, provides enterprise operations teams an easy-to-use, scalable, and secure system for backup/restore, disaster recovery, and mobility of Kubernetes applications.

K10’s application-centric approach and deep integrations with relational and NoSQL databases, Kubernetes distributions, and all clouds provides teams the freedom of infrastructure choice without sacrificing operational simplicity. Policy-driven and extensible, K10 provides a native Kubernetes API and includes features such full-spectrum consistency, database integrations, automatic application discovery, multi-cloud mobility, and a powerful web-based user interface.

Given K10’s extensive ecosystem support you have the flexibility to choose environments (public/ private/ hybrid cloud/ on-prem) and Kubernetes distributions (cloud vendor managed or self managed) in support of three principal use cases:

  • Backup and Restore

  • Disaster Recovery

  • Application Mobility

K10 Editions (Starter and Enterprise)

K10 is available in two editions. The default Starter edition, provided at no charge and intended for evaluation or for use in small non-production clusters, is functionally the same as the Enterprise edition but limited from a support and scale perspective. Customers choosing to upgrade to the Enterprise edition can obtain a license key from Kasten or install from cloud marketplaces. Please see the product page for a comparison of the editions.
