Druva, Inc., the leader in Cloud Data Protection and Management, today announced it has been issued three new patents by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its innovative deduplication technology and data search capabilities. These new innovations are already being made available to Druva customers and enable enterprises to optimize data protection through lower network bandwidth demands and intelligent storage tiering, resulting in lower consumption needs. These unique technologies further highlight the advantages of Druva’s platform over legacy solutions and illustrate how the company is helping organizations unlock the value of their data while driving down costs by up to 50 percent.
Rapid data growth, combined with the rising costs and management of traditional hardware to store data has become an unsustainable proposition for an increasing number of businesses. Druva has been consistently at the forefront in developing breakthrough technologies that not only make cloud-based data protection possible, but also deliver improved performance, enhanced user experience and lower overall cost to manage data across enterprise-grade data center workloads, cloud applications and endpoints. This unrelenting focus on innovation was recently highlighted in Druva’s unveiling of the industry’s first multi-tier intelligent data storage in the cloud, helping customers optimize spend and performance while eliminating disruption to users or applications.
“Enterprises are struggling to contain operation costs, in hopes of focusing more on innovative initiatives that can move the business forward,” said Milind Borate, CTO, Druva. “Our new technologies are already helping more than 4,000 organizations realize the benefits of a solution that does not rely on aging hardware, while empowering them with a complete data set ready for deeper analysis and greater business value. One of Druva’s core values is to have a challenger mentality and our team continually pushes the envelope to find new solutions tuned to cloud native technologies.”
