Dropsuite builds secure, scalable and highly usable cloud backup
Founded in 2012, Dropsuite is a respected, publicly listed company on the Australian Securities Exchange. It serves businesses in 136 countries by building secure, scalable and highly usable cloud backup technologies. They perform billions backups per day for organizations around the globe providing a professional-grade, easy-to-use cloud platform to ensure that those organizations never lose data again.
Dropsuite was planning a multi-cloud strategy and identified GCP for its advanced capabilities increasing and improving its network performance, save costs in storage and compute operations and speed up development cycle time. Dropsuite decided on deploying in Google Cloud Platform and then sought Cloud Comrade given their deep expertise in this area. Cloud Comrade with its team advised Dropsuite on Google’s world-class infrastructure and a robust set of solutions to build, operate, and grow in today’s demanding IT environment. Google Cloud projects form the basis for creating, enabling, and using all Google Cloud services including managing APIs, enabling billing, adding and removing collaborators, and managing permissions for Google Cloud resources.
|“Launching our platform on Google Cloud allowed us to reach more customers in mature markets. Although we are a Singapore Company, we generate the vast majority of our revenues from countries like the US, Japan and the EU where backup and archiving is a critical component of a business’s defense against data loss and cybersecurity risk.” says Adrian Loke, Director of Infrastructure/DPO at Dropsuite|
Cloud Comrade partnered with Dropsuite to implement Google Cloud to give the flexibility to scale and control how workloads connect regionally and globally. GCE (Google Compute Engine) delivers virtual machines running in Google’s innovative data centers backed by Google’s worldwide network that also supports Youtube and Google Search. Cloud SQL offers high performance, scalability, and convenience. Hosted on Google Cloud Platform, Cloud SQL provides a database infrastructure for applications running anywhere. To allow world-wide storage and retrieval of any amount of data at any time, Cloud Storage is used. For balancing workloads in network clusters and to deliver durable messaging that helps developers quickly integrate systems, Cloud Pub/Sub is used. Cloud Load Balancer has been used to distribute load-balanced compute resources in single or multiple regions, close to your users and to meet your high availability requirements.
