Druva has announced a new distributor partnership with Tech Data, as the cloud data protection and management firm looks to accelerate its growth and help more businesses accelerate their journey to the cloud.

Tapping into Tech Data's presence across 100 countries and 125,000 reseller customers, Druva says its Compass channel programme is now better positioned to support more businesses' transformation initiatives – at a time where keeping secure and operational with minimal disruption is important than ever before.

"We are seeing the realisation of the future of business, and it’s powered by cloud," commented Timm Hoyt, global vice president of Partners and Alliances at Druva.

"Businesses are facing one of the most challenging periods in modern business, and with the addition of Tech Data to our existing ecosystem of outstanding channel partners, we will be able to reach more customers faster and with greater resources.

"We are passionate about helping organisations unlock the value of their data in the cloud, and look forward to working with Tech Data to supporting even more organizations on their journey to the cloud."

Introduced in 2019, the Druva Compass programme focuses on helping customers transition to a comprehensive, cloud-based data protection solution.

Thanks to its expansion, new and prospective Druva customers will benefit from access to a broader pool of preferred partners, as well as the ability to safeguard data more efficiently, eliminate supply chain constraints, and further reduce costs while accelerating cloud migration efforts.

The partnership with Tech Data will also means that more channel partners and their customers can benefit from Druva’s comprehensive workload coverage, the firm added, ensuring data security, compliance, and business continuity as operations increasingly shift to the cloud.

"Enterprises are increasingly looking for cloud-based alternatives to legacy solutions,” said Mike Heintzelman, Vice President of Global Vendor Solutions at Tech Data. "We look forward to working closely with the Druva team and helping more businesses reimagine data protection in the cloud era."
