virtualDCS unveils CloudCover K8s, Kubernetes protection and makes key appointments

In another innovative UK first for virtualDCS, the cloud computing and disaster recovery specialist has unveiled a brand-new solution to bridge the data protection limitations of the popular open-source container software, Kubernetes, commonly dubbed K8s.

Known as CloudCover K8s, the solution is built utilising software from Veeam’s latest acquisition, Kasten. It offers complete Kubernetes protection with end-to-end security and backup data immutability with ransomware protection, as well as being quick to deploy using a state-of-the-art management interface.

The launch of CloudCover K8s follows virtualDCS announcing its commitment to focusing on providing disaster recovery and backup services to the channel, which has fuelled the company’s expansion, with two new employees starting and further recruitment plans in place.

Kurt Kiefer has joined virtualDCS as chief revenue officer, to spearhead the company’s desire to be Veeam’s leading channel only partner. Kurt brings a host of channel experience to the role from leading vendors including Red Hat, Dell, HP, and immutable object storage provider, Zadara.

Kurt commented: “As new technologies, like K8s mature in the marketplace, it is exciting to work with a company that focuses on innovative services and enabling the industry to protect data from the ever-growing threats of cyber-criminals and ransomware.

“The new CloudCover K8s service enables organisations to backup, replicate and protect their cloud native applications off-site. The cloud adjacent solution allows the seamless movement of applications between clouds and on-premise clusters, ensuring business data is protected if cyber-protection policies fail.

Richard May, managing director at virtualDCS said: “The introduction of our new service offering, further showcases our drive for industry innovation and commitment to Veeam technologies.

“We have an ambitious expansion strategy in place, and both the CloudCover K8s service and new team members will be core to achieving this growth.”
