Congrats to the Druva and CloudRanger teams for the acquisition announced on June 5th. With this acquisition, Druva adds native AWS workload data protection and management capabilities to their on-premises solution. ESG's 2018 IT Spending Intentions Research Report indicates that 46% of the organizations we surveyed use cloud infrastructure to run business applications. Clearly, the ability to protect these workloads has become very important to IT, and Druva is one of the vendors positioning themselves to take advantage of this trend. Native/aaS/In-cloud data protection is a space that ESG is watching closely – stay tuned!
