Deployment and Configuration

In this article

    To be able to protect data with the Integration with Veeam Backup Repositories for Kasten K10 solution, you must configure the K10 cluster and the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure.

    Configure K10 Cluster Infrastructure

    K10 cluster is a source environment that creates snapshots of applications running on Kubernetes persistent volumes. After that, K10 makes exports of snapshot data and moves it to the Veeam backup repositories where this data is stored in a native Veeam format. The K10 cluster that you plan to use in the Integration with Veeam Backup Repositories for Kasten K10 infrastructure must meet the system requirements.  For more information on configuring a K10 cluster, see Kasten Docs.

    Configure Veeam Backup & Replication Infrastructure

    To configure the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, complete the following steps:

    1. Install or upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication.

    After you install Veeam Backup & Replication, Integration with Veeam Backup Repositories for Kasten K10 component will be automatically installed along with Veeam Backup & Replication. If you are going to upgrade or update your Veeam Backup & Replication version, make sure you install the cumulative patch P20211211. For more information, see the Installing Veeam Backup & Replication, Upgrading to Veeam Backup & Replication 11 or 11a, Updating Veeam Backup & Replication 11 or 11a sections in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

    1. Deploy Veeam backup repositories.

    Add the Veeam backup repositories that will store backups exported by K10 policies to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure. Make sure that you configured the required permissions. For more information, see the Backup Repository and Adding Backup Repositories sections in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

    1. [Optional] Configure archive tier.

    Configure archive tier to set an additional layer of storage. For more information, see the Archive Tier section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

    1. [Optional] Configure Tape infrastructure.

    If you want to use tape devices to store backups exported by K10 policies. For more information, see the Tape Devices Support section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

    1. [Optional] Configure Cloud Connect infrastructure.

    If you want to store copies of backups exported by K10 policies in cloud repositories of service providers, configure Cloud Connect infrastructure in a Veeam Backup & Replication console. For more information, see Veeam Cloud Connect User Guide.

    What You Do Next

    After you configure the K10 cluster and Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, K10 will be able to connect to a Veeam backup repository using the VMB API functionality and you are ready to create K10 policies.
