Druva acquires hybrid cloud innovator CloudLanes

Druva has announced the acquisition of CloudLanes, an innovator in hybrid cloud data protection and migration that enables secure movement of data from on-premises to cloud. With the new addition, Druva is set to expand cloud to the edge, bringing enterprises the ability to keep data readily available on-site, while leveraging SaaS-based business continuity, short recovery windows and greater workload mobility to reduce costs by up to 50 percent.

“Enterprises are now seeing first-hand the challenges of hybrid cloud solutions that are increasingly inflexible with today’s cloud-driven world,” said Jaspreet Singh, founder and CEO, Druva. “Current hybrid solutions are trying to forklift legacy to cloud, but organizations need solutions that are born in the cloud and bring cloud functionality closer to the datacenter. The addition of CloudLanes will help us extend the advantages of cloud to more enterprises at the edge, bringing greater access to data, enhanced protection, and help accelerating growth through simple and reliable data protection.”

CloudLanes, founded in 2015, introduced a secondary storage platform built on public clouds with a hybrid cloud approach. Deigned for data guardianship and optimised for backup and archival workloads, CloudLanes combined this with security and governance, chain of custody and data verification capabilities. In 2018, CloudLanes was recognized in Gartner’s “Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies” report for its innovative technology.

“Businesses are looking for greater flexibility and more cost effective ways to manage their backup data, and are increasingly looking to the cloud,” said Abhijit Dinkar, co-founder and CEO, CloudLanes. “CloudLanes’ innovative approach to data migration enhances the Druva Cloud Platform and will bring enterprises a novel and powerful new approach to data protection and management.”

“The readily available nature of backups stored on-premise has been a key barrier to cloud data protection adoption for some organizations and industries,” said Phil Goodwin, Research Director, IDC. “A solution that combines the best of both worlds, delivering the performance of on-premise data protection with the scalability, security and cost structure of cloud holds a lot of promise. The addition of CloudLanes to Druva’s portfolio expands the company’s ability to address cloud-based data protection requirements.”
