Under Veeam, Kasten remains a true open-source company and has demonstrated its commitment to open source by releasing a new open source project – Kubestr – for the cloud native community. Kubestr enables developers and operators to identify the various storage options present in a given cluster, validate storage configurations, and evaluate storage performance using common benchmarking tools like fio. The goal of the Kubestr project is to enhance the ability of developers and operators to perform quick and comprehensive analysis of their Kubernetes environments and determine the optimal storage for their applications and workloads. In this episode of TFiR Newsroom, we sat down with Michael Cade, Senior Technologist at Kasten by Veeam, to talk about a wide range of topics including tech aspects of Kubestr, open sourced at Kasten under the leadership of Veeam and the roadmap of the project.
