Druva announced its Druva Cloud Platform, or Druva’s Data Management-as-a-Service solution, is now available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Snowball Edge.

According to a release issued by Druva, this solution allows enterprises to freely move data between on-premises and cloud platforms without the lock-in, complexity, or cost of legacy hardware.

A recent survey by Druva found that data protection is a key motivator for a transition to the cloud, with 85% of organizations polled recognizing the need given the cloud’s scalability, distributed architecture, and added resiliency.

But businesses also require short recovery times for mission-critical services on-premises, forcing organizations to maintain older, complicated systems for the purposes of rapid recovery.

“AWS Snowball Edge is fully supporting our platform, allowing customers to move large volumes of data to and from the cloud without the task taking up excessive amounts of time and bandwidth,” said Prem Ananthakrishnan, vice president, products, Druva. “Customers now have even greater flexibility in their mobility of data and are able to improve SLAs for business continuity purposes, all at no additional cost.”

AWS Snowball Edge is a data migration and edge computing device with 100TB of capacity and support for computing tasks via built-in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and AWS Lambda function capabilities. Druva uses these advanced capabilities to facilitate a fast transition of data to and from the cloud.

Enterprises can now reap the benefits of workload mobility, and the advantages of advanced cloud services like disaster recovery and replication, improving their overall business continuity SLAs without the need for dedicated appliances or secondary storage devices.
