There is a cost involved with data retrieval. AWS Backup is truly that, a backup. If you need to access this data on a regular basis, there are better options out there. For long term, just in case incremental backups, AWS [Backup] checks all the boxes. Just set it up, start your backups, and rest assured your data is safe.

DRUVA suits us well as we are almost 100% cloud-enabled at this point. The big plus to us is not having to push data over our internet circuits, as DRUVA backs up directly from Azure to AWS. Being a chain of rural health care facilities make this design ideal for us

Pros

  • Backups - it's what it does.

Druva
  • We like the option of downloading backed up files both individually and as a group.
  • The ransomware protection is a security feature that puts our minds at ease when it comes to the safety of our data.
  • The Customer Success team does frequent reach outs and technical health checks.

Cons
Amazon AWS
  • Not so easy to use
  • A little pricey
  • The backup is in the cloud; make sure to keep an offline backup (the problem of all of this kind of solution)

  • Advanced Ransomware Recovery doesn't work for all Druva offerings, that would be a great feature to have.
  • The archiving feature could also offer more price flexibility.
  • Seating up the initial configurations can be a little tedious due to the length of the documentation involved.

The product was easy to deploy and has been easy to manage. The current pricing model is also acceptable. With all of this combined, it just makes sense to renew our subscription to the product. The only thing that may change this is if there is a product or service that we need that either they do not function with or if they do not offer

Usability

Very easy to use and is as plug and play as you can get. There are configuration options for multiple schemas that best fits your organization.

Usability is really high on my list when it comes to software/applications. As with all new technologies, there is a bit of a learning curve, but things are relatively easy to find. Occasionally you have to do a few extra clicks, but for the most part, it's quite user friendly and intuitive. You don't have to go a dozen levels deep to find what you're looking for - or at least the surface level issue.

Like any service, there are scheduled maintenance periods and unscheduled outages, however outages have been very limited and fortunately have not had any impact on our environment.

Page response in the admin center is acceptable- rarely are we waiting for data to load. Backup speeds seem fine, and restore speeds are OK considering it's likely pulling data from cold storage. It often takes 30-60 seconds for the restore to begin transferring files, but speeds are acceptable thereafter

Support Rating

Support for AWS Backup is by Amazon itself so it is solid as always. If you have a business or higher level support plan you'll have no trouble getting engineers or other staff on the job to help you with whatever comes up.

I can't downvote this facet on account of my never having to call upon Druva's Tech Support. Self-help is always my first port of call and the documentation provided by Druva has allowed me to proceed to a point where I can confidently use the system. Even without support, I trust the system implicitly. That said, I'm pretty sure if and when I need it, it'll be awesome.

Implementation from cloud ranger to Druva Data Resiliency Cloud platform was a seamless integration experience to upgrade the policies and license for continual backup/recovery support. This may be one of the best "set it and forget it" apps for backup solutions, that also allow notifications for failures etc...

Being an AWS service, AWS Backup integrates in a native way with other AWS services, providing an easy way to backup those services. Being able to create separate backup plans that meet specific business and regulatory compliance requirements provides us with capabilities to face auditing processes.

We started very small with this product, only backing up key officers' laptops. After our initial experience, we found it very easy to scale up the product to all company laptops and expand into file servers, VMWare servers, and other production-level data, like Office 365 and Teams. We found the product very easy to scale while remaining intuitive and efficient to use.

  • Being able to offer live hot storage in the cloud for production environments allows me to get more people in the creative space with vast demand for speed.
  • Great integration with all my hardware, firewall and backup software was great.
