HYCU Updated R-Cloud Data Protection Platform

For cloud-native applications from build to runtime running on AWS

HYCU, Inc. unveiled updates to its R-Cloud data protection platform offering customers additional protection for their AWS applications across their data lifecycle, from build to runtime.

Hycu Delivers Complete Data Protection For Cloud Intro

AWS provides capabilities and tools to securely protect customer data and who has access to it. The latest updates from the company, builds on this by providing customers with enhanced enterprise data backup and recovery functionality to ensure application data running on AWS services is protected across the application and supporting microservices development lifecycle.

More enterprises than ever before have rapidly adopted the use of modern applications running on AWS. These applications achieve the scale and flexibility required for mission-critical infrastructure by leveraging dozens of independent AWS services. A report found that on average organizations are running 184 microservices, with 60% of respondents running 50 or more (Vanson Bourne, 2019). Many of these services hold critical data, configurations, and settings that need to be protected and recovered consistently in case of an unexpected disruption. This changes the way customers backup and restore these applications and their underlying services.

Organizations developing and delivering cloud-native applications typically focus on production environments but miss the risk of not protecting their development and deployment infrastructure. Companies must re-think and protect the services across the entire application development lifecycle. HYCU is a solution that enables protection of all critical applications and services from build to runtime. This means protecting applications used to design, develop, and build on AWS like Atlassian Jira Software, services used to secure critical services like AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), and deployment services used to take applications to production like AWS CloudFormation and AWS Lambda. The company’s solution helps to make every application and service protected and recoverable from the build phase to runtime.

With customers data estates getting more complex and there’s a continued need to protect modern applications, we need to redefine the approach to data protection and the ways in which we backup and restore these applications. Mission critical data is not just in the production environment, it is also in the development and build environment. Customers need a way to protect every application at every stage of its lifecycle,” said Simon Taylor, founder and CEO. “Our newest updates for customers demonstrate our commitment to build on the powerful and secure AWS services to keep all the components of the modern application ecosystem available and most importantly recoverable no matter what the disruption may be, simple human error or malicious actor. We focus on not just the data, but also the settings, configurations, and functions that are critical to build, deploy and run modern applications on AWS as well as those SaaS services supporting AWS applications. Our focus is to give organizations the power to restore and recover critical data and configurations for any service – in one click.

Prashant Parekh, long-standing HYCU partner, and founder and CEO, KloudData, noted: “We share similar values to the team at HYCU. Our collaboration with HYCU has always been rooted in trust and the belief that enterprise-class backup and recovery building on already powerful AWS data resilience and security helps ensure a complete and effective way to handle data protection for our mission-critical AWS services. Their latest update to R-Cloud is a testament to their relentless pursuit of excellence. As we continue to embrace modern application development and the power of AWS services, having HYCU with us on that journey ensures we remain secure, agile, and future-proof as we modernize our environment.

We have been tracking HYCU for several years now, and their progression to provide the most complete data protection for applications running on AWS has been impressive,” said Jerome Wendt, CEO and principal data protection analyst, DCIG. “At a point in time where customers are looking for solutions to protect and recover data that is not served by other third-party enterprise backup and recovery vendors, it is important that no application or service go unprotected. HYCU is taking significant steps forward to make sure this happens and is helping them as the fastest growing data protection as a service company.”
