New Support for Google Cloud SQL Highlights HYCU Agenda at Google Cloud Next ’19

BOSTON, MA – April 9, 2019 — / — HYCU, Inc., a pioneering enterprise software company specializing in data backup, recovery and monitoring for multi-cloud environments, today announced support for Google Cloud services, with Google Cloud SQL being the first service to be supported. This follows the successful introduction of HYCU Backup as a Service for Google Cloud Platform, a fully managed backup as a service for customers running their mission critical applications, databases on virtual machines (VMs) running on Google Cloud. Now, customers running Google Cloud SQL will have 1-click simplicity backup and recovery with HYCU.

“Since developing and launching the first purpose-built backup as a service solution for Google Cloud users, the reception by Google Cloud partners and customers alike has been beyond what we anticipated. For Google Cloud users, we are now focused on delivering the value they would expect from a cloud native, enterprise class, tightly integrated data protection experience,” said Simon Taylor, CEO at HYCU. “With our support for Google Cloud as a managed service, users have the choice they need for the same consumer like experience with enterprise class functionality they have come to expect.”

Like Google Cloud Platform, HYCU Backup as a Service is a cloud native, elastic service that grows and shrinks with customers’ needs. Similar to Google Cloud services, customers can subscribe for HYCU in minutes right from the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Marketplace, login using their native Google Cloud credentials and experience the simplicity of HYCU. With no-agents to install and with zero deployment, there is no overhead on operations.

Now with the addition of support for Google Cloud SQL, highlights of the benefits Google customers can experience are:

  • Automated discovery of all Cloud SQL instances & databases
  • One click data protection for Cloud SQL instances
  • Granular recovery of databases
  • Automation for one-click, development and test copy management

Since HYCU was built with the Google Cloud user in mind and with its intuitive UI, there is no additional training required. As long as you are familiar with Google Cloud, you have access to a fully managed data protection service for Google Compute and Cloud SQL.

“Google Cloud is known as an innovator and that innovation is what makes Google Cloud users push to deliver value as they deploy, purchase and manage leading solutions,” said George Crump, Co-Founder and Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland. “As HYCU adds enhanced data protection support for key Google Cloud services like Cloud SQL, with ease of access directly on the GCP Marketplace, I anticipate customers appreciating having the ability to simplify and improve their data protection of this critical data set. The combination of Cloud SQL and HYCU provides meaningful differentiation for Google Cloud and is something that organizations deciding on cloud investments should consider.”

HYCU will be sharing more on core and additional support for Google Cloud Platform at Google Cloud Next ’19 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from April 9-11.

You can find HYCU and the team of technology experts at the following events and sessions:

  • Tuesday, April 9, Subbiah Sundaram, VP Products, will be hosting a session in Theater 2 from 4:30 pm – 4:50 pm on why HYCU is the right backup service choice for your applications and VMs running on Google Cloud.

“There is little tolerance for unavailability of priority applications and data. The need for enterprise-class data protection as a cloud-native service has never been more important as mission-critical cloud services like Cloud SQL get deployed more widely. Organizations need to protect, manage and recover their data in the cloud,” said Christophe Bertrand, Data Protection Senior Analyst at ESG. “HYCU continues to deliver on its roadmap at a fast pace and adds the workloads, services and features that Google Cloud admins and users alike look for in a managed backup as a service solution. Much as HYCU did with Nutanix in delivering an innovative ‘natively-developed’ solution, they are doing for Google Cloud.”
