Druva, the Sunnyvale, California headquartered cloud data protection and management solutions provider, has released beta support for Kubernetes-orchestrated containers.

According to the company, the software-as a service (SaaS)-based solution delivers complete application protection that is accessible by all teams including the central information technology (IT) team and DevOps.

The enterprise data protection solution helps businesses protect Kubernetes applications and their underlying infrastructure within Druva along with their existing workloads, the company said in a statement.

“With Kubernetes usage on the rise, too many production workloads lack adequate data protection. Now, central teams can securely and seamlessly incorporate Kubernetes protection into their existing policies, while enabling application owners to recover, migrate, and clone applications when necessary,” Stephen Manley, CTO, Druva said.

The solution helps its customers reduce dependencies on external storage and databases, and protect their Kubernetes workloads against threats including user error, site outages, and ransomware attacks.

It will provide application-consistent data protection including resources inside and outside Kubernetes clusters as well as a secure SaaS management, with a platform built on AWS for global control.

According to Druva, the solution automatically stores snapshots of the entire application development environment during the building process, which allows its customers to recover their applications anytime. These snapshots can be restored to a new location for migration, cloning, or troubleshooting of production workloads while the central team can fulfil compliance requirements with retention of backups in offsite locations.

Earlier this month, the company said the revenue from its data centre workload has increased by more than 100% in the past 12 months. The company has deployed SaaS solutions for over 135 enterprises, including Adani Power from India, NTT Data and Uniadex from Japan, McConnell Dowell from Australia and Gold Peak from Hong Kong.
