Cloud data protection and management solution provider, Druva Inc., recently announced that 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 concepts are already being made available to Druva customers and allow enterprises to optimize data protection through lower network bandwidth demands and intelligent storage tiering, resulting in lower consumption needs. These technologies further highlight the benefits of Druva’s platform over legacy platforms and illustrate how the provider is assisting organizations with unlocking the value of their data.
Rapid data growth, combined with the increasing costs and management of traditional hardware to store data has become an unsustainable prospect for a growing number of businesses. Druva has been at the forefront in developing technologies that not only make cloud-based data protection possible, but also provide enhanced performance, improved user experience, and reduce the overall cost to manage data across data center workloads, cloud applications, and endpoints.
In a press statement, CTO of Druva, Milind Borate said, “enterprises are struggling to contain operation costs, in hopes of focusing more on innovative initiatives that can move the business forward. 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.”
