New products and services

Druva has announced new disaster recovery functionality to extend its converged cloud-based data protection solution for enterprise infrastructure, Druva Phoenix. Introduced a year ago, Phoenix provides backup and archival of both physical and virtual server environments direct to cloud. Now Druva has added disaster recovery functionality, creating a single platform supporting multiple, often disparate, data protection capabilities. The company says that this first-of-its-kind, integrated public cloud offering eliminates software, expensive hardware, tapes and process complexity while saving enterprises anywhere from one-third to one-fifth of their total operating costs.

Druva Phoenix is built on Amazon Web Services and leverages the public cloud’s elasticity, global presence and security, meaning companies can store, protect and manage large volumes of data simply, efficiently and effectively.

Phoenix’s new disaster recovery capability enables organizations to continuously back up their VMware environments, and automatically recover and spin-up their virtual machines in the AWS public cloud when disaster strikes, ‘ensuring business continuity and eliminating the need for additional dedicated on premise software, storage or hardware, significantly reducing cost and improving agility’.  With its advanced configuration settings, Phoenix enables the setup of detailed polices to automate network and security failover to a DR environment, significantly reducing downtime.  Additionally, administrators can automatically spin-up multiple copies of virtual machines across geographies and accounts for test and development automation.
