Enterprise data is growing at a phenomenal rate and it’s located everywhere: on endpoints, in data centers and increasingly in the cloud. Industry studies indicate that 90% of enterprises are now using one or more cloud services to house 65% of their business-critical workloads. Using cloud-based services also opens up new use cases including cloud-based backup, disaster recovery and data intelligence.
It has become harder for organizations to manage and protect their data across increasing volumes and data types. Data deduplication is one of the technologies changing data protection economics resulting in the technology becoming a critical component to any organization.
This brief explains the different types of deduplication technology as well as why Druva’s source global deduplication delivers significant value to any data protection strategy.
Data is the core to any digital transformation. By simplifying and making data protection more reliable, Druva enables any enterprise to accelerate growth by simplifying data protection and providing data intelligence that accelerates business decisions.
Offered on a software-as-a-service platform, Druva offers cloud-based backup and disaster recovery across endpoints, data centers and cloud workloads. It eliminates the need to purchase hardware, software or skilled resources dedicated solely to data protection, reducing total cost of ownership by up to 50%. Built on AWS, customers experience global scale data protection that is secure and offered across all AWS regions.
The figure below provides high level benefits of Druva’s Cloud Platform.
Druva is built on AWS and provides customers with access to the latest in high-performance cloud technology, unmatched storage flexibility, data durability and zero-day support for new AWS services. Druva delivers storage efficiencies by leveraging S3, S3IA, Glacier and Snowball Edge.
Druva delivers a single solution that unifies data protection to break up operational silos and simplify administration. For example a unified dashboard across all AWS regions supports data locality requirements while providing IT and business teams with single-click management.
For database services, Druva leverages Amazon’s DynamoDB and Relationship Database Service (RDS). For scalability it leverages AWS’ load balancer to automatically provision the appropriate amount of EC2 resources for the current backup load. This means that EC2 resources will shift dramatically throughout the day as Druva automatically scales resources up or down. Automatic scaling is completely transparent to the user as they never see or need to manage any backup servers. Customers view their data through a single Druva console.
Druva’s source side deduplication leverages DynamoDB and RDS. DynamoDB stores the file and deduplication metadata and also performs the deduplication look-ups. DynamoDB also contains the backup and history indexes. RDS stores all the configuration data such as disaster recovery plans, VPCs, subnet, etc.
Data deduplication has been extremely valuable for Build Group whose data volumes exceed 11 Tbytes. The amount of data transferred over the network is far less with the IT team seeing dramatic reductions in network congestion. Complete backups have gone from a full day to less than half an hour.
To minimize the number of chunks, Druva implements incremental forever backups and date stamps. Incremental backup only submits new or modified blocks, files or objects to the chunking process. Druva also uses time stamps to identify files that have been modified.
