We have not delved into Kubernetes at this time but would the same backup strategy work for a normal VM? or would it be ill advised due to the temporary nature of certain containers? Interested to see responses from people that use this.

We don't use Kubernetes so can't advise. But a backup strategy sometimes depends on how your containers are integrated with your systems, and whether they all need to be backed up as regularly or at the same time, if possible.

For on-prem backup and migration strategy for Kubernetes containers, I recommend implementing a combination of regular data backups and a well-defined container migration plan. Implement a backup solution that captures the entire state of Kubernetes cluster, including configuration, application data, and persistent volumes. For migration, use container orchestration tools like Kubernetes Federation or tools specifically designed for container migration to seamlessly move containers across clusters while ensuring data integrity and minimal downtime. Regular testing and validation of backups and migration processes are essential to maintain the integrity and availability of containerized applications.

Office 365 is well integrated with a lot of systems used by different users, so it is probably a good choice but there are also products dedicated for shareholders management process like Carta for example.
