Endpoint software maker Druva just announced a private cloud edition of its flagship inSync platform. The solution is targeted at large enterprises that need full control over their technology infrastructure in order to maintain compliance and enforce security policies.
“Larger enterprises with thousands of devices and users have been asking for a private cloud alternative that is as scalable, secure, manageable and elastic as Druva’s public cloud solution,” said Jaspreet Singh, CEO of Druva. “Now they can leverage the power of the cloud in an on-premise, centrally managed environment that scales with their needs while avoiding the complications of deploying separate instances in different departments and geographies.”
Druva Private Cloud incorporates a lot of functionality into one product. It ships with automated endpoint backup, secure file sharing powered by the latest release of inSync Share, and analytics tools that allow admins to see what their users are up to. The platform also includes encryption, device geo-tracking and remote data wipe capabilities.
Druva’s software was created for organizations that are willing to trade control in exchange for ease of use and cost-effectiveness. Enterprises have a different set of priorities and more cautious management, conditions that required the vendor to overhaul its products.
This latest update from Druva comes less than a month after EMC announced similar news. On January 15, the storage hardware maker unveiled an on-premise version of Syncplicity, its widely-used file sharing service.
EMC’s transition to the traditional enterprise market is a smoother one because it supplies not only the software, but also the hardware on which it’s supposed to run. The on-premise release of Syncplicity will help drive sales of the company’s Isilon storage products to large customers that are slower to adopt the cloud than their peers.
