Druva Enters into Strategic Agreement with AWS to Enhance Data Resiliency as Enterprise Cloud Adoption AcceleratesMay 11, 2022
Druva Inc. announced a multi-year global Strategic Collaboration Agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) to accelerate customer migration and provide an added layer of cyber resiliency to the already secure AWS Cloud. Built on the existing relationship between Druva and AWS, this agreement underscores both companies’ commitment to delivering a cloud-native data protection solution on AWS, and supporting enterprises during critical phases of the cloud journey, including support for workload migration and deployments.
As enterprises expand data footprints across hybrid and cloud environments, information technology (IT) infrastructure quickly becomes increasingly complex, costly, and resource intensive. The Druva Data Resiliency Cloud on AWS has the ability to minimize these challenges for customers by simplifying solution deployment and management while delivering continuous innovation designed to help new customers realize value even faster. Through this collaboration with AWS, Druva will work to bring organizations the future of data resiliency through the simplicity, scale, and security of cloud.
“The speed of innovation and scale in the cloud cannot be matched by solutions that put hardware at their foundation,” said Jaspreet Singh, Founder and CEO, Druva. “We have enjoyed a strong relationship with AWS over the last eight years and through this expanded agreement look forward to bringing more innovations to market to support accelerating cloud migrations and expanding cloud deployments. We have always been confident the future is cloud and are incredibly excited to continue our work as we help organizations realize the power of a cloud-first approach to data resiliency.”
“As customers migrate to AWS, they’re telling us they’re looking for ways to consolidate and simplify their data architecture, while still moving fast,” said Stephen Orban, Vice President, AWS Marketplace and Control Services at AWS. “Over the last eight years, we have worked closely with Druva to leverage AWS’s global architecture to build capabilities that help thousands of organizations enhance the data resiliency of their products. Customers use the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud to protect workloads at scale, all over the world, and we’re excited to see how customers further benefit from the expansion of our relationship with Druva.”
