Kasten declared that its K10 data platform will offer support for Bottlerocket. Kubernetes data management solutions provider, Kasten‘s K10 data management platform will give support for a latest open-source operating system design-built for hosting containers made by Amazon Web Services, Bottlerocket. Kasten will give facilities for backup and recovery, disaster recovery (DR), and application mobility for containerized applications. Bottlerocket, made by AWS, is a free and open-source Linux-based OS centered on security and maintainability, giving a reliable, steady, and secure platform for container-based workloads that can also be utilized with Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service.
K10’s Integration with Bottlerocket will enable teams to:
- Reduce the attack surface: Further security is added by a decrease in the amount of software incorporated in the operating system. This eradicates elements that can be utilized in performing or intensifying an attack similar to a shell, interpreters similar Python, and indeed an SSH.
- Enhance operational efficiency: Bottlerocket utilizes ab image-based update system in Bottlerocket rather than package by package updates to make the os more constant and foreseen. K10 offers policy-driven automation that incorporates forward-looking backup and DR policies.
- Restrict development overhead: Bottlerocket utilizes containers as its container runtime, which is in accordance with the Kubernetes CRI. Developers can take existing containers and operate them on Bottlerocket without any modification. K10 automatically identifies all the application elements operating on a cluster and treats the application as the unit of atomicity without needing development innovations.
Gaurav Rishi, Head of Product, Kasten stated that Kasten’s K10 data management platform operates on AWS and is integrated with various AWS services incorporating Amazon EBS, Amazon RDS, and IAM. Enterprises utilize K10 to execute important functions such as application-centric backup and granular recoveries of their Kubernetes applications operating on AWS with Amazon EKS, In addition to other Kubernetes distributions. By the added integration of Kasten K10 on Bottlerocket, clients utilizing the latest OS can now also take benefit of the added security and operational benefits such as image-based updates.
