In our series of blogs about the Modern Workspace, we’re exploring how the best and most successful businesses of the present day are delivering the best and most efficient goods or services to their customers.
Two of the core elements of the digital era are data and cloud – and in short, the cloud has changed everything – the way we work, go about our daily lives, and communicate with colleagues, family and friends. In this latest instalment, we explore how the cloud can be embraced by small and medium sized business, the opportunities it creates, how to best adopt it, and how to turn your data from being a compliance risk or liability into an asset that can be used for driving business intelligence and growth.
The cloud has changed everything
Effective modern workspaces depend on the cloud for mobilising data into an asset to streamline governance, improving cyber resiliency, and gaining critical insights that help guide and expedite business decision making.
By using a solution such as Druva, companies can drive down traditional IT costs by up to 50% simply by reducing expenditure on unnecessary hardware, capacity planning and software management – which in turn reduces deployment and maintenance hassle, and allows IT teams to concentrate on adding value in other areas.
A modern approach to backup
Leaning on the public cloud is a means for modern-thinking business to create simple, secure and scalable cloud backups to keep the firm’s crown jewels – read it’s data – safe.
This approach perfectly embraces the modern workspace – whereas in the more traditional working environments, everything was contained safely within the four walls of a physical office. Now, a modern workforce expect to be able to work anywhere from the relatively high bandwidth confines of an airport lounge to a field trip to an oil rig – and backups need to be able to adjust.
With global dedupe and WAN optimisations, Druva inSync delivers high-speed backup and restore, which is a particularly effective solution in locations where bandwidth is tight. In such situations, the backup is reduced to essential items only so as to ensure that precious bandwidth is preserved for the user to efficiently work, as opposed to being tied up on the backup.
It’s not just backup…
An effective modern backup service doesn’t just back up data. Once it’s backed up that data, it provides governance functionalities to comply with the increasingly stringent global, regional and local data compliance regulations, comprehensive coverage across endpoints, SaaS applications, on-premises and cloud infrastructures.
Druva’s cloud is geared up to deliver data protection and management for the cloud era. It is built on the AWS cloud, and offered as-a-service with PAV in order to deliver globally accessible, fully scalable and completely autonomous data resiliency. For small and medium sized business, this means that your backup scales to fit your data requirements, not vice versa. Similarly, it provides a centralised repository of your critical data from all sources – de-duped for simplicity and to reduce cost – and turning it into a mine of business intelligence and knowledge to stay ahead of your competition and market trends.
