Customer Successes with AWS and Druva: Cloud-Native Data Protection and Management

April 3, 2019, Timm Hoyt

Seven years ago Druva recognized the disruptive force of a connected future and evolving cloud technology, and how it would change the way we think about and manage information. Druva innovated a new approach to data protection and today, is built entirely on AWS. Together with AWS, we help businesses of all sizes, ranging from Fortune 100 to SMBs, better manage and protect their data using the power of cloud.

With more than 4,000 joint customers, public and private companies all over the world count on Druva to ensure their data is always available with the global accessibility, durability and infinite, on-demand scalability of AWS. Here is just a small sample of our success with two of those companies: Allergan and GameStop.

Allergan

As a leading pharmaceutical company, it was clear that Allergan’s approach to dealing with legal holds and eDiscovery was heavily siloed, cumbersome and manual. Legal teams would notify IT to place a particular user’s data on hold. Then IT staff would physically locate the workstation or laptop and manually ensure the data was there.

Allergan implemented Druva across all of its endpoints, allowing data to be automatically collected in the cloud. Allergan can now access this data from anywhere in the world through Druva’s intuitive dashboard. The minimal impact on end users means improved productivity, while the simplified management and automatic backup scheduling ensures that data is readily accessible.

Results with Druva and AWS:

  • Central visibility and management across all remote sites in 100 countries
  • Leveraged cloud-native, off-site scalability with AWS
  • A 95% reduction in eDiscovery data collection time  

GameStop

GameStop needed an efficient cloud backup and recovery solution to meet business continuity requirements across its over 7,000 retail stores in 14 countries. The company had various virtualized environments with over 250TB of data, but its on-premises backup infrastructure procedures were so complex and inefficient that it was unable to meet business continuity SLAs.

GameStop turned to Druva to secure its data in enterprise server workloads and virtual environments. GameStop was able to take advantage of the global deduplication technology provided by Druva and AWS — and ultimately increase cost savings.

Results with Druva and AWS:

  • Unified global data protection requirements within a single system
  • Increased the backup footprint of virtual machines by 20%
  • Reduced backup and recovery operating expenses by 70%
