Druva Brings Home the Gold from the IT World Awards

We’re proud to announce that Druva was named the Gold Winner for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) at the 2017 IT World Awards®. This is an exciting recognition, coming close on the heels of our five awards for customer service at the 2017 Stevie® Awards. Our innovation and service continue to be recognized, and we’re thrilled to share this award with our outstanding team.

At Druva, our mission is to simplify data collection in the cloud. DRaaS is an innovative approach to disaster recovery that allows us to offer major improvements over traditional technology. Druva Phoenix, our DRaaS platform, brings together data collection, backup, disaster recovery, archival, and governance capabilities. Administrators can initiate failover and spin up virtual machines (VMs) within moments directly in the Druva cloud for a near-zero recovery time objective (RTO). We believe that a data protection system can be simple, comprehensive, cost-effective, and secure. It’s an honor to be recognized for our success.

Meet the Winner: Druva Phoenix

Druva Phoenix leverages public cloud infrastructure for huge benefits. First and foremost, this unique cloud-native approach ensures the lowest possible total cost of ownership (TCO) for data backup and recovery. There’s no need to maintain a secondary data center, which enables our customers to avoid the expense and headaches of traditional systems. Implementation and testing is simple and inexpensive, with development environments that are identical to production systems and no extra overhead for test servers in traditional data centers.

Druva Phoenix is also exceptionally agile, enabling admins to replicate, move, backup, and recover VMs quickly and easily. IT staff can coordinate and monitor workflows and policies from one centralized system, allowing one-click failover in the event of a disaster and RTOs as low as 10 minutes. Advanced analytics ensure that our customers are always alerted to potential data and compliance risks.

The Druva Phoenix Advantage:

  • Auto-discovery, easy backup, and data recovery (DR) configuration
  • Central, global management of the VM recovery environment
  • Efficient, agentless VM backups kept at-the-ready for delivering an RTO in minutes
  • Minimized RPOs with global dedupe and ever-incremental backup, which reduces storage requirements and bandwidth significantly
  • DR spin-up in customer’s own AWS account, which simplifies configuration, removes security concerns, and eases network failover
  • Cloud-native delivery at 60% lower TCO over legacy models — with no hardware, software, or deployment hassle

We’ve always known that our cloud-first approach results in big benefits for our customers. We remain committed to innovation, exceptional product design, and industry-leading customer service, and we’re proud to receive recognition for our achievements.
