With the SaaS Advantage, Break from Legacy Data Protection and Reduce TCO

As organizations are beginning to embrace digital transformation, the global economy seems to be slowing down. That likely means we can expect heightened uncertainty about spending and increased supply chain disruptions. Traditional data protection solutions fall short in these conditions as hardware and software costs, management time, talent shortages, and supply chain disruptions can lead to increased expenses and day-to-day difficulties. 

Finding hidden data protection costs

For legacy backup systems, there are many fixed costs, including the purchase of software, along with the servers, and storage to run the systems. Soft costs include the cost of management for the data protection platform and security and there are even more hidden costs to consider when evaluating the true TCO of legacy backup systems

We at Druva tend to think of legacy data protection like an iceberg — what may appear to be a useful and affordable solution on the surface could be hiding a problematic list of compounding expenses just out of view…

In short, your team is likely dealing with a myriad of hidden costs, many of which build on each other; you may be paying extra for any or all of the following:

  • Hardware, software, and/or storage costs
    • Over-provisioned compute and storage
    • Long-term software licenses
    • Cloud costs and fees
    • Costly duplicate copies
  • Management costs
    • Capacity management
    • Software upgrades and patches
    • Cloud management
    • Performance and cost tuning
  • Security costs
    • Air-gapping against ransomware
    • Monitoring backup environments
    • Incident response

Organizations looking to tighten their belts and prepare for an uncertain economic future need to evaluate their costs, break from traditional data protection, and search the marketplace to find the perfect fit between air-tight coverage across all workloads, simplicity in management and recoverability, and most importantly, affordability. 

Register for an upcoming webinar to evaluate the costs of your legacy data protection and compare against Druva’s leading SaaS-based solution.
