Druva inSync

Druva is ideal if you need an end-point backup solution and don't have an incredibly large on-prem storage unit to handle backups from multiple machines. On top of backups, it also has security and DLP controls, which allow for remote-wipe of data should a unit go missing. Druva inSync is NOT for production/server usage (Druva has another solution for that), as it's primary purpose and design is to protect endpoints. For ransomware protection, as the backups are not stored on the machine (or easily accessible without the Druva inSync program) the possibility of ransomware destroying backups is extremely low.

Google Drive is perfect for team projects and as a cloud if you want to access your files from any computer or device. You do have to make sure to sign in to your account to access if the device you're on doesn't have the app downloaded to it. I wouldn't suggest using Google Drive if you're not on one of your main devices (i.e. on a public computer).

Pros

Druva inSync

  • The ability to track file access with the auditing system is unparalleled. We can generate reports on a user or on a file/folder to see who has accessed it and when.
  • When a file went missing we reviewed when it was last accessed and it was deleted 6 months ago. With Druva inSync we were able to not only recover the file but determine who deleted it and inform them of better practices so it wasn't accidentally deleted again. This was incredible and invaluable.
  • Managing teams of users and how they access folders/files is great and very simple.
  • We often share access to folders or files with our clients during the software development phase and having the ability to revoke access as needed is fantastic. If you accidentally sent a link out for sensitive files you would be able to revoke access to that link and generate a new one rather quickly.

Google Drive

  • Collaboration - allows members of different companies to work together easily and multiple people can be accessing/editing a document at once
  • Drafting/Automatic saving - automatic and instant saving allows the document to always be the most up-to-date version with ease
  • Tagging others - I use this feature a lot to assign and ask questions about different portions of the documents
  • Variety of document types - this can replace Microsoft Word

Cons

Druva inSync

  • Restoration Log Report, should match file name to Microsoft's Activity log. One for one comparison helps to ensure that all files were restored.
  • They need a report that also allows me to know if a backup process is taking a more than normal amount of time. I had one user whose backup started August 28th and was still running Sept 15th. This to me, would be a "failed" backup, but it was just stuck and none of their reports alerted me.
  • I really don't have a third issue, Druva Rocks!

Google Drive

  • The different naming of Google Drive File Stream and Google Drive for personal use, including its local sync apps' names on PC (Drive File Stream and Backup & Sync from Google), can be further improved to make it clearer.
  • While Google Drive File Stream disallows sharing of files with external users, it would be good if Google can figure out a secured way/mechanism to enable this, as sometimes there is a need for one in an organisation to share files with external parties outside of the organisation.
  • While Google Drive for personal use provides info on how much storage space is left from its app, Google Drive File Stream does not provide storage space left info in its app.

Druva is the only tool has vast options to protect all kind of end user data. InSync setup is not only easy to set which also manage. Cost effective as compared to other data protection applications. as they are already in AWS cloud it is not burning our pocket incase of increase in data size or device size. Best support from the technical team

For its compatibility, easiness, quick responses, user interface, storage capacity, files management and file listings. These are some of the reasons for giving higher ratings and Google Drive has become an integral part of my professional life. We use this software on daily basis and most of the time saving lot of time.

The software is really lightweight, to the point you can adjust it to leave virtually no impact. No users have reported performance issues due to it, and most don't realize it's on their system. Deployment was really easy through PDQ, and monitoring/managing it is really hands-off from an IT standpoint. It works well.

While I might feel like the phone is too small to use to create content, they have done a great job in creating a UI / UX that doesn't prohibit you from creating that content on your phone. On a full blown desktop they have done a great job in creating a suite of office tools that can compete with Microsofts' Office suite. While saying that I do think it's fair to point out that Excel will still knock the socks off of a Google Sheet, due to the fact that it's running in a browser.

Google Drive syncs in backgroud and does not affect pc performance. Google drive on the web has no slow downs. I can work on my legacy Windows 10/i5 2520M / 8GB / 480Gb SSD laptop.
Google Sheets is excel level and gives complete spreadsheet features which passes excel in some areas.

Most issues I have can be solved without opening a ticket. But if I need to get in touch with a support agent, I can open a chat request and within minutes have a tech on the end assisting me. The few tickets I had to open were resolved on the first call.

It takes a few days for customer support to get back to you. Although, I have not had to use support too often. Once you get an email back, they are very thorough and work hard to fix the problem quickly. It is a really great resource and a great way to get the help you need if you're stuck. A phone call also works quickly but you have to call during specific times.

In consultation with a Druva support person we configured a few policies first for several groups of users. Once that was done it was easy to add users and generate emails that contained links and instructions to download/install the app. Once installed, the app applied the appropriate policy and the sync of data began. We had 40 or so devices to protect, and in a week or less they were all protected. The delays usually were on the part of the user who needed to schedule some time (15-30 minutes at most) to accept the invitation and download/install the app.

It's an extremely easy software to implement, once you sign up for a google account you automatically have access to google drive with a set amount of storage space. The business or Google Suite accounts have more storage space than a regular free account, but setting up and accessing google drive is very easy in both cases

Alternatives Considered

Druva inSync

We use Veeam to back up our virtual server infrastructure so naturally looked to Veeam when we wanted to backup Office365. The key difference here was the price. Veeam was several times more expensive than the Druva inSync and appeared to be a lot more complex and time-hungry to manage.

The main aspect that led us to stay with Google Drive compared to the other software is its storage capacity that is undoubtedly superior. In the same way, to be able to work from the Gmail account is another point in favor because we consider this mail service as the most complete at present.

Return on Investment

Druva inSync

  • We have had multiple cases of data being lost while syncing from iPads to OneDrive in areas with limited mobile connectivity that would have required extra visits to sites, including international travel. The backup service paid for its first 3 years of usage within the first 6 weeks.

  • I would definitely say Google drive has been crucial for many of the businesses I’ve been a part of. There’s no other collaboration system that works quite as well or is as easy to learn and use as Google drive. Plus, it helps that Google is an empire when it comes to platforms such as this; it makes syncing a breeze.
