This week we talk to David Gildea, founder of CloudRanger, and current Director of Product at Druva. We discuss what it’s like to back up AWS workloads at scale, starting with a high-level overview of Druva’s AWS backup offering, before comparing the solution with backing up these workloads on your own.
We draw an analogy to Dave Hitz’s comment he used to make about NetApp, “I liked my first filer; I loved my tenth, and I hated the 100th.” David thinks managing AWS backup by yourself is a lot like that. It’ll get you so far, but at some point you’re going to want help. The good news is, Druva is there to fill the gap with centralized, mulit-account, cross-account, and cross-region backup that’s simple to set up and run.
