A few weeks ago we announced the general availability of Druva Cloud Platform for all Druva customers. Our customers have already started adopting DCP and are seeing positive results. But why did we started building Druva Cloud Platform in the first place? And where are we on this journey? We’re on a mission to help our customers manage their entire organisation’s data in the most efficient and simplified manner.
For past few year, we have been working on protecting and managing data from across various data sources. With acquisition of Druva CloudRanger, we are now helping our customers manage their data stored in AWS infrastructure as well. Over last few years, the way we generate, store and use data has evolved significantly, and the reality today is that enterprise data exist in multiple places – from classic endpoint devices to cloud based workspaces, from typical data center to serverless storage. With increasing mobility and variety of data sources, we have always been on our toes to support new data sources and new ways of accessing and managing the data source. But this evolution has made it more complex for IT and IT managers to manage the entire data footprint of the organisation.
Given these changes in how data is managed, we asked a few key questions:
This is when Druva Cloud Platform was born. It’s how to simplify the complex data management scenario, unify all data sources, expand the reach of innovation happening in each specific area and in a way accelerate the innovation itself.
With this goal in mind, we started building Druva Cloud Platform about a year ago. Many people worked round the clock to realize the dream with which we started building the platform.
With the first release of DCP, we are able to change our solutions into elegant services interacting with each in a non-intrusive way. This makes it much easier to upgrade those services and provide updates faster, rather than getting blocked by dependencies. There’s a number of other improvements as well:
During the course of making Druva Cloud Platform a reality, we learned a lot about our own solutions and how our customers interact and use our solutions. With those learnings and derivations from the initial performance of our key metrics, we are once again at work to improve Druva Cloud Platform further. As we have said, this is a journey of a true platform that we have started and this is the first step.
