Kasten announces Kubernetes data management on VMware vSphere and Tanzu
This will enable the company to deliver an easy-to-use, scalable, and secure system for backup and recovery of Kubernetes applications for VMware users. 

“Cloud-native applications built on Kubernetes are growing dramatically, and VMware has doubled down on tightly integrating Kubernetes and making containers a first-class citizen in vSphere,” said Gaurav Rishi, vice president of product, Kasten. “The shift to cloud-native microservices has delivered major benefits like scalability, reliability, and agility. However, legacy data management offerings are still stuck with monolithic architectures that are often hardware centric.
