SANTA CLARA, Calif. — July 31, 2018 — Based on its recent analysis of the North American cloud data protection and management market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Druva with the 2018 North American Product Leadership Award for its agile, high-performance, and cloud native data management-as-a-service (DMaaS) platform. Instead of only offering data backup, Druva has expanded the platform’s functionalities to include data governance and intelligence. These valuable tools help reduce downtime from data loss or breaches, enhance productivity, optimize operations, and control costs.
Druva’s cloud-native solution can be applied across endpoints, data centers, SaaS applications and native cloud workloads to ensure the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO). The solution delivers many unified services that decrease customers’ reliance on complex, labor- and time-intensive, multi-vendor, and stand-alone point solutions. These services include the following:
“The Druva Cloud Platform unifies services and provides centralized administration,where customers can view and manage their data on-premises as well as across SaaS, platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS),” said Sankara Narayanan Senior Industry Analyst. “The solution ensures that customer data is properly managed through its lifecycle, meets enterprise service level agreements (SLAs), and helps the client achieve consistency of service regardless of where the data is stored.”
While Druva’s Cloud Platform is comprehensive, it contains architected and patented global data deduplication capabilities as well. Druva can have a single global dedupe index, whereas most classic data protection systems have low elasticity and require additional hardware once they reach 100 terabytes on the dedupe index. Druva’s services, which employ a multi-tenant, stateless node architecture with fully elastic storage for both data and metadata, can scale into hundreds of petabytes.
In addition, Druva has built an extensive security model, employing a security-by-design approach, which has made the company one of the few HIPAA- and FedRAMP-audited organizations in the cloud. With these product features and benefits, Druva has established its product leadership across a range of industries, such as manufacturing, life sciences, government, high tech, consulting, and education.
“Significantly, Druva has tailored its services so that customers can choose the products and services that best fit their current business needs and have the option of adding more based on future needs. This allows customers to scale in line with emerging market trends,” noted Sankara Narayanan. “The rapid product innovation, strong funding, continuously expanding customer base, and the platform’s application across a plethora of industry verticals will strongly boost the company’s growth prospects in the coming years.”
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality that is gaining rapid market acceptance. The award recognizes the solution’s features and the customer value enhancements it enables.
