Druva Inc. today announced it 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 latest enhancements, Druva will help customers further strengthen security for critical cloud workloads, and drive down costs through storage efficiencies that eliminate traditional cross-account and cross-region requirements.
Amazon EC2 remains one of the most popular environments for building and running workloads in the cloud. 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. As one of the industry’s first and only at-scale data resiliency clouds, Druva has designed an approach which 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 organizations are flocking to the 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 organizations leverage 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.”
National DCP, LLC (NDCP) is a global provider of innovative supply chain solutions for the foodservice industry. The company currently serves over 10,000 quick service restaurants in the U.S. and distributes products to more than 40 countries.
“Amazon EC2 has served as the backbone of our cloud transformation, allowing us to scale our workloads to meet ever-evolving business demands,” said Rob Inmon, Senior System Administrator at National DCP. “Druva’s comprehensive offering has already helped us radically simplify our backup management and eliminate existing storage headaches. We will now be able to take full advantage of everything the cloud has to offer, with peace of mind our data is resilient, secure, and always easily accessible.”
