“Druva CloudRanger gives us highly efficient visibility and control over our customers’ backups. Our managed services staff can stay on top of petabyte-scale storage. Druva CloudRanger saves them hundreds of hours annually in the management of backups and restores,” Smyth added.
Version 1 also optimizes customers’ cloud costs using Druva CloudRanger’s scheduling feature, which ensures customers’ cloud resources are only running when needed. This delivers savings of tens of thousands of euros to their customers per year. For example, turning off development and test instances that are only needed during business hours reduces costs by up to 70% compared to running them all the time.
Version 1 works with customers in highly regulated industries including healthcare and finance, so compliance, security, and reliability are critical. “Everything we do is based on best practices and certified to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards,” Smyth said. “That enables us to deliver services to organizations under stringent requirements such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
“Getting Druva CloudRanger from the AWS Marketplace makes it incredibly simple to deploy in the AWS environment,” said Smyth. “We used CloudFormation scripts, supplied by Druva CloudRanger, to roll out backups to our whole customer estate in minutes rather than hours or days. That means we can get customers’ applications into service in the cloud that much faster,” he added.
