Disaster recovery can be a stressful activity. Druva has managed to come up with a way of recovering in the cloud that doesn’t need to be complicated, nor does it need to be time-consuming. Architect and Blogger, Dan Frith, explores Druva’s Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaas) offering.
Dan Frith examines how the cloud has changed the way we consume data and how we need to re-align our data protection strategy.
In this Tech Talk, Dan Frith discusses data protection for data stored in SaaS platforms.
Enterprises are increasingly using applications outside the firewall, with SaaS solutions like Slack and Microsoft Teams becoming increasingly important. At the same time, these applications attract just the type of corporate data (chat, files, and workflows) that can place organizations at legal or operational risk. They’re also using cloud-based automation tools like ServiceNow and Okta, and even running applications in Amazon AWS. That’s why it’s a good thing that data protection providers like Druva are adding support for this “outside the firewall” data.
If infrastructure can be moved partially or entirely to a cloud provider and free up IT resources, then Druva believes the same can be done for backup. This is a logical next step for backup practices and with an early seat at the backup as a service (BaaS) table, Druva is well positioned to become a leader.
