Veeam is like the superhero sidekick that helps you protect and back up all of your data, so you never lose it, no matter what happens. Think of it like this: just as your trusty sidekick helps you keep your superhero powers safe, Veeam helps businesses become better at protecting their data. Whether your data is stored in the cloud, on physical servers, or in virtual environments, Veeam makes sure it's backed up and ready to be restored in case of a disaster or cyber attack.
We had a chance to chat with Michael Cade, Senior Global Technologist at Veeam, about the company's journey and how their platform can help businesses. According to Mr. Cade, Veeam's focus has always been on creating a platform that can carry out backup and recovery across any platform, whether it's physical, virtual, cloud, or cloud-native.

Protecting Your Kubernetes Data with Veeam
If your business is using Kubernetes, Veeam has got you covered. K10 is all about protecting Kubernetes data, and Veeam saw an opportunity to integrate its technology into its existing platform to recover, restore, and migrate data from RDS back into Kubernetes. This integration is like adding a new module to a spaceship, allowing it to travel to new destinations and accomplish more.
The Veeam Data Platform is compatible with various data sources, and the platform utilizes open-source projects like Canister to determine the course of action for data protection. This approach is like having a group of experts contributing their ideas and expertise to the platform, making it more effective and reliable.
Security Concerns with Kubernetes and Containers
However, with the widespread adoption of Kubernetes and containers, security concerns arise. Veeam ensures that users only access the segregated parts where they need to be and do not run unsecure software on the Kubernetes cluster. It's like having security personnel guarding different sections of a building, ensuring that no unauthorized access occurs.
“Yeah, and I think actually that's really important securities top of mind for a lot of people at the moment. Not just data as in like ransomware attacks and cyber security but vulnerabilities are like leaving your front door open in a busy street in a dangerous part of town. Why would you put yourself in that position, right?” - Michael Cade
Learning and Growing with the CNCF Landscape
Michael makes an analogy of the CNCF landscape to be like a Lego brick with different sections such as runtime, security, and storage. Despite there being many legos on the CNCF landscape, he recommends filtering everything by using accurate filters on the left-hand side.
The CNCF landscape is a term used to describe the Cloud Native Computing Foundation's landscape, which is a visual representation of the various technologies and projects in the cloud native ecosystem. It includes a wide range of categories such as runtime, security, storage, and networking, and provides a comprehensive overview of the tools and software that are available for the cloud.
However, whether you're just starting to adopt Kubernetes and container technology or are a seasoned pro, Veeam's platform is compatible with a wide range of storage and cloud providers, giving you the flexibility to choose the solution that works best for your business needs like regulations or software.
