Druva Delivers Data Protection with Built-In Disaster Recovery on AWS

Unique SaaS-based disaster recovery drives down TCO with improved automation and orchestration

SUNNYVALE, Calif. ‒ August 20, 2019 Druva, Inc., the leader in Cloud Data Protection and Management, today announced the general availability of its Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) offering for enterprise workloads. Built on AWS, Druva helps improve business continuity with features including automated runbook execution, tighter AWS integration, and simplified orchestration and testing – all while reducing total cost  of ownership (TCO) by up to 50 percent.

Druva’s robust and secure DRaaS solution helps protect and recover data at scale, offering customers the flexibility to adopt evolving infrastructure across geographic locations, adhere to the regulatory footprint, and recover their data more quickly following  disasters.

Druva’s unified solution offers improved recovery time objectives (RTO) of ten minutes and recovery point objectives (RPO) of an hour across any AWS region and accounts. Druva helps to lower costs by eliminating administration and maintenance on storage hardware and software, upgrade, integration and patching. Druva’s Disaster Recovery capabilities streamline rapid recovery, boost developer productivity and support all enterprise-grade workloads across cloud and on-premises.

“Customers who want to manage Disaster Recovery across on-premises and cloud and create an enterprise-grade security and governance model can now leverage Druva’s unified on-demand platform to manage data protection and Disaster Recovery,” said Mike Palmer, Chief Product Officer, Druva. “Replacing their legacy data protection solutions has never been easier.”

Druva removes the stress and complexity of disaster recovery with cloud-native, scalable, unified data protection and automated DR that offers:

  • Seamless user experience with one-click, automated recovery, testing and built-in orchestration and runbook execution.
  • Faster recovery of business data through distributed global infrastructure available on-demand, support for hybrid workload failback (such as VMware Cloud on AWS or on-premises data centers), and the ability to recover data within a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and cloning VPCs across AWS regions or accounts.
  • Efficient use of time and resources with built-in runbook orchestration, automation of failover compliance testing and efficient failback.
  • Lower TCO of up to 50 percent compared with on-premises solutions.
  • Fast deployments and hassle-free use with no downtime for software installation, upgrades or patches.
  • Centralized reporting and audit ensuring that stakeholders can easily certify business continuity plans.

Druva Customer Highlights Importance of DR

Critical to the national economy, the Port of New Orleans passes over 30 million tons of goods and cargo through 14,500 miles of roads and waterways and handles more than one million passengers through its cruise terminals every year. If the Port of New Orleans went down for three days, the national impact would be close to $500 million. By moving to the cloud with Druva, the Port of New Orleans now not only meets government security standards set down by Homeland Security and the Coast Guard, but with Druva's DR solution, keeps its data safe from devastating disasters like Hurricane Katrina.
