Overview

You can now have an enriched software deployment experience wih Druva's new global discovery service. All the workload agents will now connect to this discovery service and help us intelligently change to a region and geography-specific software deployment.

Any upgrade to existing AWS PrivateLink enabled Phoenix AWS proxies will cause your AWS proxy to lose connection with the Druva disaster recovery (DR) services. Consequently, you will not be able to submit any DR jobs. To avert this situation, update the Route 53 records and IAM role associated with the Phoenix AWS proxy by deploying CloudFormation stack templates. For any further assistance, contact Support.
