Druva Unveils Its Cloud Platform
Today Druva unveiled its new information management platform designed to accelerate the full enterprise cloud-first ecosystem, the Druva Cloud Platform. This new platform is aimed at accelerating cloud-first strategies while addressing issues such as data risks that come from fragmentation and data growth. Druva’s new platform will also be addressing issues such as extracting greater value, compliance, retention, legal and analytics across disparate sources through its use of open architecture and APIs.
Many companies are looking toward a cloud-first ecosystem. Druva cites a study that has over half of senior enterprise managers adopting a cloud-first policy and the number is only going up. Switching to a cloud-first policy can help some companies deal with issues relating to the infrastructure complexity, data management silos, and increased costs associated with legacy, on-premises technologies. While switching to the cloud offers many benefits, companies do run into the wall of dealing with compliance and legal policy.
Druva’s Cloud Platform can address the above concerns by efficiently consolidating, auditing and indexing data from multiple enterprise sources, including servers, cloud applications, desktops, laptops and mobile devices. The platform will be able to lower TCO and provide on-demand compliance, search, recoverability and analytics services. In order to enable easy and complete transition from on-premises legacy to cloud-first, Druva has open APIs and architecture that—according to the company—enables organizations to address a broader range of information, security and system management needs. Druva also has a cloud-first partner ecosystem, with 20 partners, that can also help companies as they transition to cloud-first. Partners includes Legal Hold management and eDiscovery review, log analysis, reporting, mobile device management, single sign-on and managed service providers, and companies such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
