Druva Makes Major Updates To Its Cloud Platform
Today Druva Inc. announced the general availability of its Druva Cloud Platform. The company is also making updates around the new platform for unified data protection, management, and intelligence capabilities. The Cloud Platform will now also extend its services across SaaS (Software-as-a-Service), PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service).
As we previously said, Cloud platforms typically come with expensive to own and maintain dedicated hardware and storage infrastructure. Druva is side stepping this issue by offering its platform in a as-a-Service model. Through a single control plane, companies will have global visibility and policy management across all their data due to the platforms ability to have server, endpoint, cloud workload, and application data, uniquely optimized as a single, globally de-duplicated data set, and natively managed in the cloud. The new platform also includes features such as time-indexed metadata, global scale-out de-duplication, auto-tiering, RESTful APIs for access and ecosystem integration, and highly elastic search and analytics capabilities.
The Cloud Platform went live today and Druva has rolled out some more improvements since announcing it. As stated above there are several as-a-Service features to help organizations manage data through its lifecycle, meet SLAs, and achieve consistency of service regardless of where the data resides through a single point of data management. The platform scales to PBs of data if the customers need, with global data deduplication and consolidation to reduce costs.
- Data Backup and Recovery for SaaS Services: Enables fast data restoration in case of accidental deletion or ransomware corruption for Salesforce, Microsoft Office 365, Google, Box, and more
- Archiving and Long-Term Retention: Efficient storage management that automatically tiers data to lower cost storage as it ages, regardless of the cloud source, data can be maintained long-term for compliance and legal purposes, with no need for tape storage
- VMware on AWS Integration for Workload Mobility and Fast Recovery: VMware customers can span data protection across on-premises and VMware cloud environments, allowing on-premises server failure to be instantly spun-up in AWS or restored in minutes into the VMware cloud
- Integrated Console/Dashboard: Used for comprehensive data management and protection, including analytics, governance and visibility into data across heterogeneous environments
- Protection and Lifecycle Management of IaaS / PaaS Service Data: Enables organizations to manage the protection, archiving and recovery of cloud native services’ (AWS RDS, AWS S3, AWS EBS, and other) data to ensure resilience and continuity.
The Druva Cloud Platform is available now.
