Las Vegas, NV – November 28, 2023 – Druva today announced that it is a recipient of the 2023 Global AWS Partner Award, Global Storage Partner of the Year. 

Global AWS Partner Awards recognize a wide range of AWS Partners whose business models have embraced specialization, innovation, and cooperation over the past year. Global AWS Partner Awards recognize partners who continue to evolve and thrive on AWS as they work with customers.

Druva enables cyber, data and operational resilience with a fully managed, 100% SaaS platform that protects customers’ data wherever it lives. Fueled by a cloud-native architecture built entirely on AWS, Druva has disrupted data protection by simplifying and automating traditionally complex and cumbersome legacy solutions. With the launch of Dru — an AI copilot for backup built on AWS Bedrock — Druva enables users to get critical information through a conversational interface, helping customers reduce protection risks, gain insight into their protection environment, and increase productivity overall.

“Built on AWS, Druva’s 100% SaaS platform provides customers a smooth, secure journey to the cloud while effectively mitigating risks and reducing costs associated with legacy systems,” said Mike Houghton, Sr. VP, Global Partners and Alliances at Druva. “Being named Global Storage Partner of the Year underscores the power of the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud to deliver cloud-first data protection across mission-critical workloads. It’s also a testament to Druva’s strong relationship with AWS — and our collaboration to ensure customers have an industry-best solution for data resiliency.” 

“Druva helped us improve our data security in the cloud while operating at scale, and we’ve been able to achieve time savings, cost savings, and rapid restorations of backup data when the situation calls for it,” said Rajeev Gollarahalli, CIO at TRC Companies. “With cloud-native data protection, I never have to worry about my data backups because Druva makes it quick and simple. It also gives us peace of mind that Druva’s platform is built on AWS, as we know we’ll always maintain high-performance infrastructure with enterprise-grade security.”

Druva was the recipient of the first-ever Global Storage Partner of the Year Award, a new category that recognizes top partners with the AWS Storage Competency. The award recognizes a partner who provides industry-leading consulting and technology services for a variety of use cases, including backup & restore operations to, from, and within the AWS environment; primary storage using IP File or Block protocols and object storage; active and passive data archiving capabilities; and business continuity/disaster recovery (BCDR) solutions.

Druva was also named a finalist for NPO Partner of the Year - APJ, which recognizes the top AWS Partner who has delivered innovative, mission-based wins for a Non-Profit.

For the second year in a row, Geo and Global AWS Partner Awards included a self-nomination process across several award categories, which are awarded at both the geo and global level. All AWS Partners were invited to participate and submit a nomination. Award submissions were reviewed by a third-party, Canalys, and a panel of AWS experts, and selected with special emphasis placed on customer success use cases presented in the nomination form.
