SUNNYVALE, Calif. ‒ September 29, 2020 ‒ Druva Inc., the leader in Cloud Data Protection and Management, today announced it has been certified as VMware Ready for VMware Cloud. This new certification, unveiled at VMworld 2020, recognizes Druva as a validated and tested solution to protect, backup, and recover VMware Cloud on AWS environments as well as a broader VMware Cloud portfolio: VMware Cloud on Dell EMC and VMware Cloud on AWS. Regardless of where customers run their VMware infrastructure, they can now have confidence that their data is comprehensively protected and always available with Druva Cloud Platform.
As businesses seek to strengthen organizational and data resiliency, they are rapidly migrating applications and services to the cloud and expanding their use of cloud services and applications. While VMware Cloud provides the core infrastructure customers need to be more agile, data and applications still need to be protected, wherever they live. Druva helps VMware customers on this journey with a cloud-based solution that works with VMware Cloud, enabling customers to fully protect applications as they scale in the cloud and seize the full value of their VMware Cloud strategy.
“VMware has played a critical role in helping organizations navigate the changing needs of their businesses over the last two decades and is now helping them take their next step into the cloud era,” said Stephen Manley, Chief Technologist, Druva. “As workloads shift to the cloud with VMware, Druva can deliver unmatched scale, security and value to protect data, whether on-premises or in the cloud. We value our strong relationship with VMware, and look forward to our continued work together to help every business realize the full value of their data.”
Using Druva, customers can more securely protect and recover VMware hybrid cloud environments with greater operational and storage efficiencies while benefiting from a robust security model that provides data isolation and protects against ransomware. Druva’s ability to offer complete visibility across workloads also helps eliminate storage management overhead for data stored on-premises and in the cloud. Additionally, Druva delivers a modern storage capability for data protection with highly resilient storage, global, cloud-based deduplication, automatic storage tiering, ransomware protection, and on-demand scale that requires no hardware, software or administrative overhead.
“We are committed to offering customers impactful, best-in-class solutions and technical integrations, and today there is no greater need than to support critical digital transformation initiatives,” said Pat Lee, Vice President, ISV Platform & Apps, VMware. “Customers rely on VMware Ready solutions for interoperability, unique features and greater value, which have become vital to successfully navigating this moment. Druva’s comprehensive capabilities, proven value and ease-of-use as a completely SaaS-based solution make it an outstanding choice for customers expanding their VMware environments and VMware Cloud data protection needs.”
