Druva Inc. has unveiled a comprehensive software as a service (SaaS) data protection solution for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) which combines snapshots, backup and cloud-native disaster recovery within a single platform. With these enhancements, Druva will help customers strengthen security for critical cloud workloads and drive down costs through storage efficiencies that eliminate traditional cross-account and cross-region requirements.
As more enterprises rely on Amazon EC2 to build and deploy workloads in the cloud, cross-account and cross-region snapshots are used extensively to protect data and keep on hand in case a recovery is required. Druva has designed an approach that brings air-gapped security to these backups while simplifying management. Customers can now improve data security and leverage Druva’s patented deduplication and intelligent cold-storage tiering, to gain increased simplicity and efficiency.
“Modern organisations are flocking to the public cloud for its speed, scale and vast array of on-demand services,” said David Gildea, vice president of product, Druva. “By combining critical snapshot, backup and disaster recovery capabilities in a single seamless interface, AWS customers can significantly increase their data resilience, reduce costs, and ideally position their company for future cloud growth.”
“Thousands of organisations leverage public cloud services to build and run applications with speed and confidence, but as they expand their cloud footprint, data visibility, protection and recovery often becomes a costly and complex challenge,” said Christophe Bertrand, Senior Analyst, ESG Research. “The latest innovations within the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud highlight how Druva is working to address these pain points and is helping businesses unlock even more value in the cloud through a radically simplified approach.”
Druva’s cloud backup capabilities for Amazon EC2 will be generally available via the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud this spring.
