One of the earliest benefits Jenkon achieved from its implementation of the Druva Cloud Platform was in storage savings. “Druva enabled us to considerably reduce our hardware footprint from four Pure Storage arrays to one, with no storage space consumed by backups. The resiliency and availability of data with the Druva Cloud Platform means our data is secure and recoverable at any time. This frees up our SAN and will facilitate Jenkon’s growth,” said Leo.
Incidentally, when one of the physical blades hosting some of its VMs failed, all backups with Druva Phoenix resumed normally the following day without user intervention. “After we fixed the issue with the blades, all VMs migrated as expected, and there were no backup failures. I never went into the Druva management console to update anything. Druva continued working as intended, giving us the uptime, reliability, and resilience we needed,” said Leo.
Leo showed this success to Jenkon management, demonstrating they made the right decision with Druva for DR. He was able to prove that Jenkon’s business critical data, including customer data, is secure in the Druva Cloud Platform. Druva enables Jenkon to keep data for the long term (i.e., weekly backups for three months, monthly backups for one year, and yearly backups for three years), helping it facilitate compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and payment card industry (PCI) requirements.
In addition, Druva helps Jenkon protect its Microsoft 365 data, including OneDrive. “The Druva Cloud Platform protects us if an employee leaves the company. If we need to recover an email from a departed employee or documents stored in OneDrive after Microsoft’s 60 day time period, Druva enables us to recover it from the cloud and restore it as needed,” said Leo.
