Hero Future Energies now leverages multiple Druva products to protect their data landscape. That means the team can recover its 22 terabytes (TB) of data confidently from isolated, full, forever backups from the Druva Cloud powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). “The Druva Data Resiliency Cloud gives us lots of confidence, but more importantly, it means we don’t have to think about backups or spend time managing infrastructure,” Sharma said. “That is the ultimate freedom.”
Plus, it takes a lot less time – 99 percent less time to be exact. The team used to spend up to two hours a day managing tape backups on premises. Now, it takes two minutes to check in with the Druva platform, if that, as the solution provides automated alerts. “Honestly, with Druva the backups take care of themselves,” Sharma said. “My team gets alerts by email if there is an action required, and it completely takes the guesswork out of backing up data.”
Druva frees up Sharma’s team to work on more pressing issues, like finding new ways to deliver excellent technology services to the rest of the business.
Alongside the benefit of saving time, the IT team also achieved 2.35x global deduplication storage savings with Druva.
But Hero Future Energies is just getting started with its Druva journey. Sharma is already looking at other ways to incorporate Druva to make the IT team’s life even more efficient.
“We’re now considering making Druva a key part of our disaster recovery (DR) plans,” Sharma said. “That shows we trust the Druva platform to do what it says, and to do it well.”
