SUNNYVALE, Calif. ‒ DxP 2020 ‒ November 17, 2020 ‒ Druva Inc., the leader in Cloud Data Protection and Management, today announced direct-to-cloud data protection for Oracle databases. According to Gartner, 75 percent of all databases will be deployed or migrated to a cloud platform by 2022* and as organizations increasingly move legacy databases to the cloud, Druva now offers unified data protection for Oracle databases in hybrid (on-premises and cloud) environments which eliminates complex, multi-vendor infrastructure management while improving security, scalability and total cost of ownership (TCO).
As the leading database management system, Oracle’s offerings continue to be key to the technology strategy for thousands of organizations. Therefore, as companies expand their cloud footprint, Oracle databases are increasingly hosted on AWS to improve scalability, security and availability. Until now, teams have relied on complicated, expensive and inefficient data protection architectures to protect their hybrid cloud environments. As organizations increase their Oracle footprint in the cloud, Druva’s new support for Oracle offers customers a unified data protection alternative that delivers the cloud’s intended operational and economic benefits through global deduplication, automated tiered storage for long-term retention and on-demand scaling.
“Moving services to the cloud should simplify processes, not make them more convoluted and costly,” said Stephen Manley, Chief Technology Officer, Druva. “Solutions that add steps or create separate cloud environments are not designed for the cloud era. With central visibility across on-premises and the cloud, organizations using Druva can efficiently protect all their Oracle databases while being confident the data is secure, compliant and visible.”
As the first direct-to-cloud backup of Oracle databases with deduplication, encryption and long-term retention, Druva’s new support is built with simplicity in mind. Customers can now easily deploy without proprietary infrastructure or storage, ensure compliance with extensive regional storage options for data residency, reduce cost for long-term retention and preserve backups with immutable storage. Benefits include:
- Visibility and control for both central IT and database administrators
- RMAN integrated direct-to-cloud data protection for databases running on-premises and in the cloud
- No intermediary staging location to store RMAN dumps, reducing overall cost and complexity
- Auto-discovery of Oracle database instances
- Role-based access control (RBAC)
- Fast cloning and granular recovery to meet the needs of both database administrators and dev/test teams
- Auto tiering to cold storage for long-term retention for lower TCO
- Simple, capacity-based licensing
Organizations have diverse data protection requirements for their Oracle databases, especially as they migrate to or are built natively in the cloud, Druva offers methods designed to fit the needs of all deployments. For database administrators that need a greater level of control, Druva offers an agentless method using RMAN to connect to an NFS backup store, in addition to the agent-driven centralized backups. The platform brings database administrators and IT teams improved agility with greater visibility and data control.
Oracle backups to the Druva Cloud Platform leverage built-in off-site protection, global deduplication, RPOs of 15 minutes, and long-term retention, while deploying on-premises or in the cloud. Best of all, customers only pay for storage consumed in the Druva cloud, making it cost transparent and predictable. And for customers adopting Amazon RDS for Oracle, Druva offers not only RDS support, but cross-region and cross-account snapshot support as well as support for DR plans.
Druva’s new direct-to-cloud method of data protection for Oracle is expected to be available in the first half of 2021.
