, the leader in cloud data protection and management, today
announced the San
Jose Sharks
has selected Druva to enhance Microsoft Office 365 data
resiliency capabilities with a simple and reliable backup solution built
in the cloud. Since deploying Druva, the organization has realized
savings of hundreds of hours annually on storage and backup maintenance,
while reducing the manual effort and oversight previously required to
protect data critical to team collaboration by more than 50 percent.

As a leading NHL franchise and the organization employed by the City of
San Jose to manage SAP Center, the Sharks relied primarily on Office 365
native features for backup requirements but required a more
comprehensive solution. While the application offers robust services,
its complexity and limited retention policies pose challenges to
effectively manage or restore data. Using Druva, the Sharks can now
automate backups, recover data at a granular level (any level, point in
time, or site) and efficiently store data through Druva’s intelligent
tiered storage.

“With a consistent schedule of events coming through SAP Center on a
year-round basis and the extreme level of detail required to coordinate
each, our team simply doesn’t have time to manage our backups at the
minute level previous systems required,” said Allison Aiello, IT
Director, San Jose Sharks. “Cloud-native data protection and management
provides a solution to the long list of problems our IT team encounters
regularly. Druva is perfectly aligned with this approach and I love
everything about it – it is easy to deploy, it’s scalable and simple to

As a cloud-based solution, the San Jose Sharks IT team has been able to
rapidly deploy Druva across the organization’s Office 365 account
without any necessary downtime. Realizing the immediate value and
velocity of innovation a cloud-based solution can offer, the team is
also adding on additional capabilities including disaster
recovery-as-a-service and backup for virtual machines.

“Our customers want more robust Office 365 data protection capabilities,
including safeguards against potential data loss and minimizing the
impact of human error, misconfiguration, malicious activities or
insecure devices,” said Jaspreet Singh, founder and CEO, Druva.
“Organizations like the San Jose Sharks are looking to significantly
reduce the time and investment needed to manage data, so teams can
instead turn their time and resources to other high priority

As a proud partner of the San Jose Sharks, Druva congratulates the team
on an impressive season and making it to the Western Conference Final of
the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
