Legacy disaster recovery solutions delay business continuity

With the growth of cloud-based services, businesses need to ensure that mission-critical applications that power their businesses are always available. Any loss of service has a direct impact on the bottom line, which makes business-continuity planning a critical element to any organization. However, the cost and complexity of legacy disaster recovery (DR) solutions have kept many organizations from deploying business continuity solutions to anything but a small subset of business applications, if at all. Modern DR solutions leverage the cloud to help reduce the cost of disaster recovery. However, simply retrofitting an on-premises disaster recovery solution to leverage the cloud does not reduce the cost or the complexity of managing on-premises hardware-based solutions.

Reduce costs and complexity of cloud disaster recovery

Druva’s cloud disaster recovery solution allows organizations to increase resilience, reduce costs, and complexity. With Druva, you can easily meet compliance requirements with our simple and reliable failover of both VMware and AWS Cloud workloads.

Druva DRaaS simply copies the VM snapshots to our AWS Simple Storage Service (S3) bucket. When we need to failover, those synced snapshots in AWS S3 are then used to spin up AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances of our production VMs.
