Druva, Inc., has announced new developments to its disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) offering for enterprise workloads. Claimed to be the only SaaS-based disaster recovery solution built on AWS, Druva can now help improve business continuity with features including automated runbook execution, tighter AWS integration, and simplified orchestration and testing. Customers will also benefit from seamless one-click failover to the cloud for on-premises workloads, and for the first time, recovery for cloud workloads with cross-region/account support.
“Enterprises of all sizes are looking for a new disaster recovery solution that can replace the convoluted, cost prohibitive model of the last three decades,” said Mike Palmer, CPO, Druva. “With Druva’s new offerings, IT teams now have an all-in-one solution that can meet business demands and automate processes at a fraction of the cost. Disaster recovery planning is a critical part of maintaining uninterrupted operations and now there is no barrier to protecting your most critical business data.”
Leveraging the global reach of cloud, Druva’s DRaaS solution brings customers a number of new features, including:
- Recovery automation: as applications become more intricate, the interdependency become more complicated. Now with Druva, enterprises can automate runbook execution and streamline processes for rapid recovery.
- Failback recovery: Druva’s disaster recovery supports hybrid workload failback, such as to VMware Cloud on AWS or on-premises data centers, to align with enterprise compliance.
- Support for cloud workloads: Druva now offers the ability to capture data within customers’ AWS account and clone it across regions for testing and compliance.
- Automated disaster recovery testing: testing is a key (and often time consuming) part of maintaining a disaster recovery solution. Now, enterprises can automate the process, ensuring the team is prepared for a potential disaster, while also meeting compliance and audit requirements.
- Replication and mobility: users have the ability to replicate virtual machines, clone full VPCs, and also move them cross-region for test and development, and greater resiliency.
