Druva Launches New Public Cloud Backup Solution

Druva, an endpoint data protection and governance provider, headquartered in Silicon Valley with offices worldwide, has released its public cloud backup and long-term storage solution, Druva Phoenix. The new solution would eliminate tape, off-site storage, complexity and a large part of the costs of managing server backup, archiving, retention and recovery.

Druva Phoenix would unify hot, warm and cold backup and archiving processes and administration, offer unlimited retention, and perform backups and restores fast to ensure that organizations meet their recovery objectives and minimize business impact.

cloud-backup-druvaDruva Phoenix leverages patented Druva deduplication technology, decreasing cloud storage costs, greater bandwidth availability, and the advanced cloud technologies of Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide a simplified model that delivers high-performance backup, archiving and long-term retention in a single package. Organizations gain the additional benefit of centralized management of server backup and recovery across any number of remote servers and locations. 

Key features of the Druva Phoenix cloud backup solution include:

  • Unified backup and archiving – Phoenix’s integrated approach to hot, warm and cold backup and archiving makes legacy multi-tier systems as well as the use of tapes and off-site storage obsolete.
  • Infinite retention and faster recovery – Druva’s global deduplication optimizes storage so that organizations can store limitless recovery points and archive and retain their data for as long as required – into decades if needed – to meet regulatory and compliance mandates.
  • Fast backups – Phoenix would deliver direct-to-cloud backup and restore speeds of 100Mbps, utilizing the latest in object storage coupled with parallelized data transfers. It would be able to realize up to 1Gbps-effective WAN throughput with the added efficiencies provided by Druva’s global deduplication.
  • Trusted public cloud infrastructure – The use of Amazon Web Services (AWS) would ensure that customer data is maintained in a secure public cloud infrastructure and protected by a full range of system certifications including SOC1, SOC2, SOC3 and ISO-27001.

“The traditional backup-to-tape-to-archive process is expensive, resource-intensive and subject to error, with 75% of organizations experiencing tape failure in the last year,” said Jaspreet Singh, CEO of Druva. “By leveraging the technology we developed for our inSync endpoint backup platform as well as our five years of experience with the AWS public cloud, Phoenix offers a truly disruptive alternative that eliminates tape and makes the cloud a viable choice for server backup for the first time.”
