Sunnyvale, California headquartered cloud data protection and management company Druva, and Round Rock, Texas-based Dell Technologies have collaborated to offer clients advanced cloud products that would help them cut costs and simplify data protection. 

The solutions, a statement said, will be part of Dell’s new EMC PowerProtect Backup Services, which is powered by Druva.  

With this deal, Dell aims to expand its data protection portfolio for software as a service (SaaS), hybrid environments and devices.  

Dell EMC PowerProtect customers will be able to centrally and securely protect critical workloads and collaboration tools such as Microsoft 365, Google Workspace and Salesforce in the cloud, the statement said. 

Druva has been a Dell Technologies Capital portfolio company since 2014. The venture capital arm also helps its portfolio companies with go-to-market capabilities of Dell Technologies. 

“Every business deserves the opportunity to benefit from the cloud’s accessibility, robust security architecture, and cost savings. Our work together with Dell Technologies underscores the value of the cloud and our commitment to building the industry’s most comprehensive cloud data protection portfolio,” Jaspreet Singh, founder and CEO, Druva, said in a statement. 

Built entirely on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Druva provides modern cloud data protection with a single console and open APIs, which are available in 16 global regions. Druva’s zero trust architecture is air-gapped and provides data isolation, a layered security model and adheres to the most stringent security regulations. 

“IT organisations today must balance data growth across a growing number of clouds and edge locations while streamlining and centralizing data management more broadly. Dell EMC PowerProtect Backup Service is designed to help customers centrally protect, secure and recover diverse and distributed data while using features like eDiscovery, data security and compliance capabilities to reduce risks and meet governance requirements,” Laura Dubois, vice president, product management, Dell Technologies said. 

The pandemic has accelerated digital transformation journeys for several businesses in the past 12 months. 

According to Gartner, 40% of all enterprise workloads will be deployed in cloud infrastructure and platform services by 2023, up from 20% in 2020.
