Perfect to ensure any retention due to random, dodgy employees deleting emails prior to resigning or just accidental deletion without realizing for months.

We'd always felt a little uncomfortable about our backup routines. Sync'd copies of our Unix file servers on NAS boxes didn't feel like best practice, and the less said about Windows Server Backup the better. When Druva came along it made us all sit up, think and then issue an intrigued "hmmmmm" sound. Off-site backup without the hassle of stuffing pockets with DAT tapes? "Hmmmmm... this could work". Right now, all of our major systems are still on-premises based—two server rooms separated by 200m of single-mode fibre. Backing up each location to the other room worked OK, but we never really felt truly safe from a major disaster. Druva Phoenix simplifies things considerably, whilst seriously increasing our business continuity prospects. Obviously our original approach to backups was, given that the NAS devices had been bought some years ago, largely free. The systems involved were rather too bespoke and, quite frankly, fragile. Using this Enterprise-class solution has brought in additional costs, but you largely get what you pay for; simplicity and reliability.

  • It would be nice to have more control over levels if different users - specifically in controlling what email notifications the second admin receives.
  • While the tutorials give great instructions, perhaps setting up some jobs could be a little more intuitive.

Certain backup solutions can be cumbersome on how they actually work. Where that's properly deploying hardware or software that will house the backups. Druva is different where the software and infrastructure is completely managed. All we needed to do is deploy agents and proxies and point the backups to Druva Phoenix

So far it’s been a 50/50. Some issues are ignored, whilst others handled quite well.

The people assisting us with the Druva Phoenix PoC (pre-sales) and the issues we were having (support and engineering) were very professional, responsive, knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. After increasing the logging level, the cause of the issue was found and a patch was created and installed in a short amount of time.

We originally had a local 3rd party IT firm handling our back-ups. Although it was a much-reduced cost, they were not able to handle much of our capacity or requests, as well as charging extra for restoring data. When we broke away from them, the main two products we looked at were Druva and Unitrends. We went with Druva for the full cloud solution as we did not have room for or want any more hardware. The price was comparable.

Return on Investment

  • Retention of data.

  • Reliability - Backups are completed on time or there are explanations about failures and how to correct them.
  • Value pricing - We like the OpEx model: affordable subscription rate and ability to manage our spending.
  • The simple restoration process, with options for overwriting the source or duplicating it.
