Druva Inc. surpassed 7 million daily backups as it continues to set the standard as the industry’s largest cloud data protection platform operating at scale.
Daily backup activity surged by more than 40% over the last 12 months as it has expanded its footprint across 16 AWS regions and has helped thousands of organizations embrace cloud data protection to navigate unprecedented challenges.
With more than 2.5 billion backups completed annually, 169PB of data under management, innovations, and a platform purpose-built for the cloud era, it has also once again been named Data Management Company of the Year by Data Breakthrough, a market intelligence organization.
The shift to remote working has pushed digitization initiatives to the forefront, with 68% of IT decision makers having accelerated their digital transformation plans since the pandemic1. As cloud migrations continue, data has become both more valuable, and in greater need of protection. In tandem, IT teams need solutions which can protect data regardless of where it is created or stored, unlock its value to the organization, and strengthen business resiliency.
The Druva Cloud Platform is built with automated backup and recovery features and ransomware protection that help businesses improve data agility, accelerate cloud migration efforts, and lower overall costs. These features, combined with the platform’s scalable cloud-native architecture and workload coverage for protecting critical applications, helped Druva secure recognition as Data Management Company of the Year for the second consecutive year.
“With all the complexities of the modern IT landscape, organizations deserve a simple, secure and automated solution for backing up their data, no matter where it lives,” said Thomas Been, CMO, Druva. “Business resilience has become dependent on data resilience, and whether you’re facing a cyber-attack, data privacy regulations, or seeking insights to drive your business forward, data protection has become entwined with everyday operations. As the world moves to the cloud, Druva is uniquely positioned to help customers in this moment.“
This Cloud Platform is designed to simplify data management and transform backup data into an asset. Over the last year, the company has continued to deliver product enhancements, innovations for users. In September, the company unveiled SaaS based protection for Kubernetes applications and their underlying infrastructure.
Additionally, the software company introduced a series of ransomware recovery enhancements and an integrated backup and archive offering for NAS systems.
The 2021 Data Breakthrough Awards recognizes the world’s top data technology innovators, leaders and visionaries across categories such as data analytics, big data, and business intelligence. This year, the award program received over 1,750 nominations across the globe. Recognition from these awards for the second consecutive year adds to a list of awards the company has received over the last several months.
How customers leading way in cloud era:
“The Druva Cloud Platform helps us to ensure 24/7 BC. Even if we have a crisis like a hurricane or Covid-19, with Druva our teams access backups from anywhere in the world,” said Aaron Matatov, IT infrastructure manager, OHEL Children’s Home and Family Services.
“With Druva we can quickly restore local data and access historical data stores in the cloud, both of which happen faster than with our previous on-premises solution. Now that we have cloud backup with Druva, it’s giving us opportunities to move more workloads to the cloud faster,” said Ruben Oganesyan, director of IT, Premiere Networks.
“I used to spend at least an hour a day going through logs, checking backups, and making sure everything was functioning properly – and that was just for VMs. Since switching to Druva, in 15 minutes I can see 100% of VMs, endpoints, and Microsoft 365 backups,” said Kevin Pennington, VP of IT, National Raisin Company.
