NAS backup

Integrated cloud backup & archive for NAS

Leverage cloud backup and analytics to lower your TCO and meet SLAs for network attached storage

The volume and density of unstructured data on NAS makes it difficult to balance the costs and requirements of backup, recovery, and long-term retention. With cloud-based NAS backup, you can reduce complexity, improve search and recovery, and reduce storage and archive costs.

Protecting your NAS data is complex and expensive

What makes Druva different

Druva’s SaaS platform simplifies and lowers the cost of NAS data protection with deep analytics, global source deduplication and both auto-tiering and direct to cold storage capabilities.

Improve your NAS backup TCO

Lower backup and archive costs compared to other backup solutions. Single step turns on long-term data retention to cold storage further lowering costs. Analytics helps you exclude non-business critical data from backups.

Reduce the complexity of NAS backup and recovery

Deploy in <15 minutes with no storage hardware. Scale-out, on demand to meet SLAs using proxies. Recover files from any point-in-time backup and storage tier.

Built-in ransomware protection

Data encrypted in-flight and at rest. Deduplication conceals reference data and metadata. Isolated and immutable backups protected with envelope encryption.


Integrated NAS backup and archive reduces storage use, costs and network utilization with global deduplication across storage tiers. NAS backup without storage hardware while storing immutable data in the cloud.

Since implementing Druva, we’re now recouping costs as we don’t have to rent physical backup servers … giving us total control of our backup. This is a huge time saver for IT.
