AWS re:Invent Recap Day 2 – Druva CloudRanger and Zebra

Topic: Day 2 AWS re:Invent Druva – CloudRanger session with Zebra

It’s been a whirlwind second day here at AWS re:Invent 2018. Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, The Mountain from Game of Thrones, and the world’s strongest man has been a huge hit so far, and the queues of people have been really excited to have their pictures taken.

We also had a great turnout for our in-booth presentations, providing hundreds of delegates with an overview of the Druva Cloud Platform and highlighting how Druva offers a single pane of glass for enterprise data protection, governance, and intelligence. It was great to see the huge levels of interest in our Druva Phoenix (protecting data centers), Druva CloudRanger (protecting native AWS workloads) and Druva InSync (Endpoints and SaaS applications) solutions.

Breakout session in front of a packed audience

Today, we were also thrilled to have our have our breakout session in front of a packed house at the Aria Hotel, with additional overflow space required in 5 separate locations! David Gildea, GM of Product and VP of Druva CloudRanger, was joined on-stage by one of our customers, Lewis Franklin, Cloud Architect from Zebra Technologies as they discussed ‘How to Effectively Plan for Disaster Recovery on AWS’.

The hour-long breakout session highlighted that, even though AWS Cloud provides a new level of durability and resiliency, no workload is immune to disasters—be it due to accidental reasons or malicious intent. Even in the cloud, you have to ensure continuity. Throughout the session, we addressed how you can set up an effective disaster recovery plan for your AWS environments by using the Automated Disaster Recovery features of Druva CloudRanger.

The traditional model of disaster recovery includes a high level of systems complexity, administration, testing, and cost to ensure continuity for business-critical applications. Druva’s enhanced automated disaster recovery enables organizations to replicate and clone a whole AWS account and associated environments across regions, create recovery plans in a cost-effective and efficient manner, and execute testing in just a few steps. This ensures minimal production environment impact and the ability to meet operational demands.

Lewis Franklin, Cloud Engineer, Zebra said “With automated disaster recovery from Druva CloudRanger we can now ensure continuity and resolve production issues by cloning an entire VPC and recreating it as a development environment where developers can address issues without impacting production workloads. This in an invaluable ability and ensures we can run our business with minimal disturbances.”

David Gildea continued “To maintain compliance and business continuity service-level agreements, AWS Disaster Recovery planning requires a completely different approach to deal with cross-account, cross-region workload testing and failover.”

Druva  – Data Management as a Service

Druva is the only service that can protect and aggregate data from endpoints, servers, and cloud applications. One of the best ways to see that is to stop by the booth to see the Druva Cloud Platform, a single cloud service that gives you access to all the services we use to protect your entire mountain of data. Unlike other companies, we don’t handle just a piece of your mountain; we handle it all.

If you’re in Las Vegas this week for AWS re:Invent and didn’t get a chance to stop by stand #1039, we’ll be here for the rest of the week. We look forward to seeing you!
