One of the most popular is Valero, which gives you tools to back up and restore your Kubernetes cluster resources and persistent volumes. You can run Velero with a cloud provider or on-premises. It is well documented. You can check installation overview to see details.

You can also check tutorial how to srart with Valero. If you have more question feel free to ask.
