As teams start to onboard mission-critical applications such as databases and NoSQL systems into production, there’s a need to address critical Day 2 concerns. Dealing with regulatory requirements, user error, ransomware and cluster upgrades - requires safeguarding of both data and state. In this master class, we'll describe the challenges associated with implementing a robust data management strategy with Kasten's K10 platform and Rancher's RKE.

In this Kubernetes master class, We will demonstrate not just how to easily implement backup and disaster recovery but also hybrid and multi-cloud application mobility. In particular we will discuss and demo:

  • Why legacy data management tools do not work for cloud-native applications
  • Using Kasten’s K10 data management platform to simplify complexity for ops teams
  • How to implement an effective backup and disaster recovery strategy with Kubernetes
  • How to migrate applications across clusters, regions, and clouds
