Druva (Data Resiliency Cloud)

Druva recently launched a solution for securing Kubernetes workloads on Amazon AWS, in both managed and self-managed clusters, using EKS (managed) and EC2-based (self-managed) clusters. The solution is simple to set up and use, application-aware, and capable of protecting data saved in RDS databases. Druva provides AWS users with a solution for securing complicated applications that employ containers and the Amazon AWS ecosystem. Druva can also safeguard standard databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB with the tools needed to assure application consistency from start to finish.

The main Backup Controller module is placed as an operator inside the cluster, making the solution simple, well-designed, and scalable. For increased scalability and parallelism, each backup process is started separately.

Druva offers disaster recovery and application mobility by backing up and recovering data in different AWS regions, and its connection with Kubernetes RBAC allows application owners to do day-to-day operations via the CLI.

Later, enterprises will be able to protect and migrate apps and data across numerous environments using additional cloud services and on-premises Kubernetes distributions.

Strengths: An easy-to-use and well-integrated Amazon AWS ecosystem solution with the potential to grow into a reliable multi-cloud solution. In some cases, data protection for DRS can drastically simplify application protection.

Challenges: In most Kubernetes cases, with applications deployed on-premises and in various clouds, the lack of multi-cloud capability is a deal-breaker.
