Druva is a SaaS-based backup and recovery offering that runs on AWS.
Druva is built on a base of the vendor’s Phoenix server backup product, its acquired CloudRanger capabilities for AWS backup and recovery, and its inSync endpoint protection product. Druva has phased out the individual product names in favor of emphasizing workload coverage (endpoints, cloud resources, on-premises data center resources). Pricing varies based on the product; CloudRanger is available through the AWS marketplace, and Phoenix and inSync are available directly through Druva.
Backups are snapshot-based and policies can be applied globally across the resources under management. Recoveries can occur to an on-premises system or to the AWS cloud. Druva describes the recovery process as “one-click,” and asserts that it can deliver one-hour RPOs and RTOs of minutes. Automated DR testing is possible through runbooks. Deduplication and a number of security capabilities including encryption and analytics/ML to identify anomalous activity, unauthorized access and the last known good snapshot are included. Metadata is indexed so that data can be found for recoveries, audits, and compliance.
The Futurum Group also covers Druva in its Data Protection Software research.
