HYCU, Inc., a pioneering enterprise backup as a service (BaaS) company specializing in hybrid and multi-cloud data protection as a service, today announced at AWS Summit Anaheim 2022 (Booth 333), a free tier of HYCU Protégé for Amazon Web Services (AWS). This new solution is a native backup and disaster recovery service that offers additional protection for AWS workloads. It provides customers the ability to offload all backup and disaster recovery operations as a fully automated service us Amazon Block Store (Amazon EBS) Snapshots. Cloud admins can now protect their data in minutes instead of spending days on data protection operations. Customers can subscribe and immediately protect their workloads and get back to doing what they do best – accelerating application development.
Many companies are challenged with having a reliable data protection solution. Although native functionality and scripts provide extensive features, they can require significant time on the part of cloud architects, administrators, and even DevOps teams to configure, deploy and manage, with increasing complexity as organizations grow their use of cloud workloads. HYCU believes
cloud-native backup and disaster recovery does not have to come at the expense of application development and innovation.
“In a perfect world, every organization would have data protection and backup as a core pillar within their organization. HYCU is committed to creating solutions that make data backup and recovery more accessible, limiting the threat of ransomware attack and human error,” said HYCU Founder and CEO Simon Taylor. “By releasing a free tier of HYCU Protégé for AWS, we have created the first native backup solution purpose-built for cloud and DevOps teams. HYCU has a mission of building a safer world, and above all else, we aim to deliver life-changing solutions to protect data, organizations and people.”
The free tier of HYCU Protégé for AWS removes the need for multiple interfaces and provides greater visibility and control of AWS workloads. It converges backup and recovery into a simple user experience for all AWS backups. Customers can now back up Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) workloads in minutes.
HYCU Protégé for AWS is packed with key capabilities to ensure that data protection is a simple process, yet comprehensive and scalable to organizations and teams using it. New features and benefits include:
- Live view of your protection status at all times
- Assurance that all instances are protected
- Simple granular file restores
- Cross-regional disaster recovery
- Daily notifications and proactive alerts
- 100% ownership of their data – including backups.
This announcement comes on the heels of HYCU’s Series B funding in June 2022, accelerating innovation-focused solutions and services delivery, such as HYCU Protégé for AWS.
