SUNNYVALE, CA – October 09, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Endpoint data protection and governance provider Druva today released a first-of-its-kind public cloud backup and long-term storage solution – Druva Phoenix – that eliminates tape, off-site storage, complexity and 70% of the costs of managing server backup, archiving, retention and recovery. Phoenix unifies hot, warm and cold backup and archiving processes and administration for the first time, offers unlimited retention unavailable from any other cloud backup provider, and performs backups and restores 20 times faster than other solutions to ensure that organizations meet their recovery objectives and minimize business impact.
Available immediately for remote/branch office servers with data center servers to follow, Druva Phoenix offers the first practical alternative to the traditional server backup model requiring backup to secondary storage, tape and then long-term offsite archiving. This multi-tiered approach is a cumbersome process with significant technical challenges, multiple administrative consoles, and reported recovery failure rates as high as 20%. The problem is compounded by tight IT budgets, a shortage of IT admins, and – in the case of remote and branch offices – limited local IT staff or none at all.
Druva Phoenix leverages patented Druva deduplication technology, decreasing cloud storage costs, greater bandwidth availability, and the advanced cloud technologies of Amazon Web Services to provide a dramatically 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.
“Improving data backup and recovery is one of the top priorities cited by IT professionals who participated in ESG’s 2014 IT Spending Intentions Survey, and the use of public cloud services continues to grow in prioritization and adoption. Cloud-services gives organizations of all sizes a new economic model and viable site for broader data protection coverage than they’ve ever had before,” said Jason Buffington, Data Protection Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “Cloud-based data protection has fundamentally changed the way people protect endpoint data, and remote-offices / small-businesses are the obvious next step in the evolution of cloud-powered data protection.”
Key features of Druva Phoenix that deliver that change include:
Early adopters are seeing immediate benefits.
“We knew we wanted to move our backup to a cloud solution, and Phoenix offered critical advantages like unlimited archiving, no need to pay for backing up the same data over and over, centralized management of all processes, and the use of Amazon AWS as a backend,” said Jose Ortiz, lead systems administrator at government IT subcontractor TechFlow. “We are eliminating a lot of manual processes, reducing errors, and doing restores in a few hours versus the few days it used to take to get a tape back from our outside vault. It’s much more efficient and very easy to administer.”
“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. The cloud is clearly a better choice, but current cloud-based solutions have serious limitations ranging from slow speeds and limited data retention to failure to utilize the distributed nature of the cloud to perform large-scale backups,” 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.”
