Druva extends data protection capabilities for AWS workloads

Wed 4 Dec 2019
FYI, this story is more than a year old

Cloud data protection and management firm Druva has announced several extended data protection capabilities for Amazon Web Services (AWS) workloads, including backup and data management, and long-term archiving for Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) snapshots.

As enterprises continue to expand their footprint on AWS, inputting greater amounts of data and increasingly leveraging its extensive portfolio of services, teams are tasked with protecting and analysing this ever-growing environment, the company states.

Given this influx of data now requiring oversight, a centralised approach can help teams properly manage their data, meet compliance requirements, and optimise storage.

451 Research senior analyst Steven Hill comments, “Protecting production workloads and managing data can be complex.”

“The global, policy-based data protection and life-cycle automation Druva is adding to its data protection service provides the tools needed to effectively manage that complexity. In addition, Druva leverages the flexible and resilient Amazon S3 storage, tiering data for cost efficient long-term archiving and governance of AWS EBS volume snapshots.”

Druva customers can reduce risk, intelligently store data across Amazon S3 storage tiers, and increase visibility with capabilities including:

  • Amazon S3 backup: Access a consumer-friendly interface to navigate snapshots of Amazon S3 buckets and set granular version control with backup policies for Amazon S3 buckets across regions and accounts within AWS with include/exclude rule-based selections of Amazon S3 buckets and S3 Objects.
  • Amazon EBS archival: Transition Amazon EBS snapshots to Amazon S3 storage classes like Amazon S3 Glacier and Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive, significantly reducing costs while retaining availability for business continuity, compliance, customer contracts and e-Discovery.
  • Global data management policies: Automated onboarding allows users to onboard and set policies across one or hundreds of accounts from the user’s AWS estate with the same level of effort, including AWS GovCloud accounts. Additionally, global policies bring the ability to not only list backup policies across accounts, but apply those policies to full accounts. With new policy selectors, users can include or exclude instances into backup policies by ID, Tag, AWS Account, AWS Organization, VPC, Subnet or Region, unifying policies across accounts. This significantly reduces the effort required by large enterprises to ensure consistent data protection across their entire AWS estate.

“AWS’s ease-of-use, competitive cost, and vast array of services have enabled enterprises to build today’s applications, scaling on demand and innovating for the future,” says Druva’s chief product officer Mike Palmer.

“Given how easy it is to set up environments in AWS, enterprises look to further reduce business risk, increase operational efficiency, and retain visibility of all their data.”

Druva’s new capabilities are expected to be generally available by Q1 2020 within Druva CloudRanger and immediately available to select customers via early access. Druva CloudRanger is available on the AWS Marketplace.
