Druva to Increase Customer Cloud Choice and Flexibility via Microsoft Azure

Strategic Relationship Extends Druva’s Public Cloud Portfolio for Data Governance and Availability

Druva, the leader in converged data protection, today announced an expanded public cloud presence with the addition of a new strategic alliance, Microsoft Azure. Teaming with one of the world’s largest software providers, the company will extend its Druva cloud solutions to Microsoft’s public cloud and infrastructure platform.  This new relationship provides Druva customers with greater choice for global storage options to better meet their data storage, privacy and security needs, and also offers choice regarding their preferred infrastructure vendor.

The ever-growing number of compliance and legal requirements are forcing companies to retain ever more data, as well as be aligned to regional data privacy regulations. This, coupled with an explosion in data growth, means organizations trying to keep pace with expanding traditional on-premise storage infrastructure is rapidly becoming unsustainable.  The public cloud has quickly become the more viable and secure option for this data and its governance and archival needs.  With Druva’s new Azure relationship, customers now have a wider set of choices to best meet their data growth, security and regionally specific regulation requirements.

“Druva has always taken a proactive approach to help our customers address their data availability and governance needs – and that involves offering customers strong data protection and security in the cloud for their sensitive workloads,” said Jaspreet Singh, CEO, Druva. “Our work with Microsoft Corp. underscores our commitment to broadening our cloud-related options and giving customers additional choice for deploying in the cloud securely and conveniently. Druva has quickly grown to become the defacto standard for data protection workloads in the public cloud.”

Azure will extend the data storage footprint of Druva inSync, the #1 rated analyst endpoint and cloud service data protection solution that integrates secure, scalable, high-performance backup, file sync across all user data, remote file access, data loss prevention, eDiscovery and automated compliance monitoring.  This new relationship provides increased flexibility of inSync deployments, new go-to-market channels and offers more regions to store customer sensitive data.

“The Microsoft Azure Marketplace delivers direct access to the cloud-ready applications and services customers are asking for,” said Steve Guggenheimer, Corporate Vice President and Chief Evangelist, Microsoft. “Druva built natively to the public cloud to take advantage of its elasticity, global presence and security to handle petabytes of customer data efficiently, which are also foundational elements of our Azure offering. Our mutual customers will reap the benefits of our joint efforts with cloud scalability and flexibility, always-on reliability, and international compliance support.”

Additional benefits of Druva availability on Azure include:

  • Security: Azure meets a broad set of international and industry-specific compliance standards, such as ISO 27001, HIPAA, FedRAMP, SOC 1 and SOC 2, as well as country-specific standards including Australia IRAP, UK G-Cloud, and Singapore MTCS. Microsoft was also the first to adopt the uniform international code of practice for cloud privacy, ISO/IEC 27018, which governs the processing of personal information by cloud service providers.
  • Global Availability: Broad international Microsoft datacenter locations provide 21 storage regions around the globe, including Canada and China —  enabling Druva customers to meet data residency needs posed by evolving regional data privacy regulations.
  • Microsoft Customer Advantage: Enterprise customers who have standardized on the Microsoft platform can utilize their contract license credits towards their Druva purchase.
