Installing K10

K10 is available in two main editions, FREE K10 and Enterprise. The Kasten product page contains a comparison of the two K10 editions, also described below, but both editions use the same container images and follow an identical install process.

  • FREE: The default K10 Starter edition, provided at no charge and intended for evaluation or for use in smaller or non-production clusters, is functionally the same as the Enterprise edition but limited from a support and scale perspective.

  • Enterprise: Customers choosing to upgrade to the Enterprise edition can obtain a license key from Kasten or install from cloud marketplaces.

The documentation below covers installing both Kasten K10 editions on a variety of public cloud and on-premises environments, storage integration, security key management, license upgrades, and other advanced installation options.
