HYCU supports Azure for data resilience as part of its multicloud strategy

Like the major cloud platform providers, HYCU Inc. has shaped its enterprise strategy around keeping a foot in both the on-premises world and the cloud-based space.

That strategy gained additional clarity recently with the announcement that HYCU would now support Microsoft Azure with its backup, monitoring, and disaster recovery services for the public cloud provider. The support of Azure extends HYCU’s on-premises and multicloud capabilities from its previous focus on the Nutanix Inc. and Google Cloud Platform markets.

“It’s also native; it is purpose built into the Azure marketplace,” said Simon Taylor (pictured), chief executive officer at HYCU. “We call this the year of migration for all of these cloud platforms. Customers need to move massive amounts of data in a safe and resilient manner to the cloud.”

Taylor spoke with Stu Miniman, host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio, at theCUBE’s studio in Boston, Massachusetts. They discussed HYCU’s focus on data resilience and the benefits of strong backup and disaster recovery technology to protect against ransomware attacks. (* Disclosure below.)

Focus on enterprise data

A cornerstone of HYCU’s offering is Protégé, a central management solution that covers on-premises and public cloud integrations. In announcing the general availability of Protégé in December, HYCU targeted data resilience with features to migrate virtual machines between on-premises and public cloud environments.

“We call it the three D’s: data assurance, data mobility, and disaster recovery,” Taylor said. “Those three D’s are the name of the game, and that’s how HYCU wants to help.”

In addition to the three Ds, there also another important letter of the alphabet: “S” for security. Ransomware attacks have plagued enterprise firms with increasing regularity over the past year, as criminals have breached cybersecurity defenses and captured data for significant payment to release it.

“Some of our customers have been able to crack the code in terms of not having to give in to these bad actors,” Taylor said. “Because HYCU is Linux based, because HYCU is not Windows server based, because HYCU is natively integrated into all the platforms that we support, we were able to help those customers get their data back without them paying a penny.”
