Veeam Enables Zenseact To Accelerate Innovation

Veeam announced that Zenseact is using its Availability Suite and Kasten K10 for reliable data backup, protection and disaster recovery solutions and to streamline their containerized development processes.

Based in Sweden with a team of employees from more than 55 countries, Zenseact creates automotive software with the ultimate goal of developing self-driving software that enables customers to feel safe and relaxed. Originating from Volvo Cars and Zenuity, Zenseact is at the forefront of the market for autonomous vehicle software with a safety-first mindset.

To retain its position at the leading edge, the company maintains a rapid pace of innovation, driven by data-intensive IT. Zenseact must be able to recover data quickly and effectively in the event of a disaster, making backup processes crucial for the company to operate without interruptions or operations delays. Zenseact relies on Veeam Availability Suite as its backup, recovery and monitoring solution to protect approximately 400 mission-critical virtual machines (VMs) across its IT environment.

The company began moving workloads from VMs to containers to reduce overhead and free up time and resources for development and innovation. Zenseact evaluated five different data protection solutions for containerized workloads and ultimately selected Kasten K10 – a cloud-native backup and recovery solution for Kubernetes data and applications – to provide both freedom of choice and safety to their developers, so they may perform to their full potential while keeping risk of data loss low.

The Zenseact team hit the ground running with Kasten K10, quickly becoming familiar with the interface and setting up backup policy automation for containers to cut the risk of a data-loss incident and delaying the product development process. Today, the company’s 500 developers can automatically include backups when they set up a new project and easily make changes at a later date, giving developers flexibility while keeping management simple.

By combining Kasten K10 and Veeam Availability Suite, Zenseact prevents the IT team from being a bottleneck when it comes to backups. Both developers and IT specialists at Zenseact save 150 hours per month on backup management thanks to Veeam.
