Kasten by Veeam, the Kubernetes backup and disaster recovery system, is aiming to expand its KubeCampus.io learning platform with the offering’s first delivery partners Scality and StormForge.
The new content providers, announced at this week’s KubeCon event in Amsterdam, which IT Europa is attending, will bring deep expertise in storage and automated Kubernetes resource management to help users execute Kubernetes deployments successfully, said Kasten.
With KubeCampus.io, Kasten is helping close the Kubernetes skills gap by offering free training opportunities and hands-on labs covering the most sought-after skills based on practical, real-world implementations.
The community platform increased its user base by 50% in 2022, and now reports nearly 12,500 courses completed and thousands of learning resources downloaded.
Tom Leyden, vice president of marketing at Kasten by Veeam, said: “Collaborating with our partners to expand content and instruction will give users more learning opportunities, more industry experts to consult, and more chances to be certified in leading technologies.
“Partners can benefit as well by taking advantage of opportunities to drive thought leadership and introduce their technology to prospective customers.”
“We have the opportunity to drive adoption of object storage for cloud-native apps to a whole new world of DevOps professionals. We will help educate and close the skills gaps so often present in key Kubernetes component technologies,” said Wally McDermid, vice president of strategic alliances at Scality.
