Go Report Card Build Status

A framework for data management in Kubernetes. It allows domain experts to define application-specific data management workflows through Kubernetes API extensions. Kanister makes it easy to integrate your application's data with your storage infrastructure.


  • Tasks Execute Anywhere: Exec into running containers or spin up new ones.
  • Object Storage: Efficiently and securely transfer data between your app and Object Storage using Restic.
  • Block Storage: Backup, restore, and copy data using your storage's APIs.
  • Kubernetes Workload Integration: Easily perform common workload operations like scaling up/down, acting on all mounted PVCs and many more.
  • Application Centric: A single Blueprint handles workflows for every instance of your app.
  • Kubernetes Native APIs: APIs built using CRDs that play nicely with the Kubernetes ecosystem.
  • Secured by RBAC: Prevent unauthorized access to your workflows using RBAC.
  • Reporting: Watching, logging and eventing let you know the impact of your workflows.
