Druva proposes innovative Software as a Service (SaaS) applications for data protection and management. Initially started for backup of endpoint devices, the company has been able to grow its feature set and product lines to cover more workloads (data center, cloud, and SaaS applications), and use cases (VMs, NAS, DBs, AWS S3, RDS, RedShift) and is now able to offer a compelling solution with zero infrastructure requirements for enterprises with hybrid cloud infrastructures.

Market positioning:

Druva is a fast-growing company, with customers in small and medium enterprises (SME), large enterprise and public sector. Its innovative solutions enable the user to avoid the burden of infrastructure management while providing a reliable service for data protection.

The solution does not cover all the platforms and the OSes usually found in large enterprises. On the other hand, modern systems are well supported, with data management and governance features that contribute to dramatically improve its Return on Investment (ROI) in many scenarios, especially with the latest regulatory compliance requirements such as the case of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Deployment model:

Druva is a SaaS solution built using Amazon AWS. Druva offers solutions for endpoints, cloud applications, and data center workloads. For on-premises, data center workloads, most customers leverage direct-to-cloud backup and recovery. While a majority of customers find direct-to-cloud to be sufficient, Druva offers avirtual appliance for caching purposes that can be deployed locally in the user’s data center or remote office for selected workloads that require faster backup and recovery operations (RPOs and RTOs).
