Highlights

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 and Druva inSync are both Data Backup Solutions built to archive and restore business data. Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is designed to preserve data in Microsoft Office applications and is marketed as data loss prevention software. It is most popular with mid-sized businesses, though it is also used by small and mid-sized businesses due to the popularity of Microsoft Office Software. Druva inSync is most popular with mid-sized to large enterprises, and is marketed as an end point security solution. 

Features

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 and Druva inSync both allow users to secure their data, but since Druva inSync is an endpoint backup solution and Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is a data loss prevention solution there are some differences that set them apart.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 integrates seamlessly with Microsoft software, allowing users to store data to local storage or to the cloud. Additionally, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 provides a simple to use interface that users will not need much training to master.  Businesses using Microsoft Office software will have no trouble protecting their data from accidental loss or external threats.

Druva inSync is an endpoint backup solution, so businesses can use it to protect their data across multiple devices and cloud applications. In addition to archiving and data protection, Druva inSync includes features to help users maintain regulatory compliance.  Lastly, Druva inSync is versatile and allows users to backup many third-party systems, allowing it to easily fit into most IT infrastructures.

Limitations

Though Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 and Druva inSync both include data backup features, they also have some limitations that are important to consider.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 provides excellent support for Microsoft Software, but it isn’t as flexible as Druva inSync when it comes to non-Microsoft data.  Businesses with a variety of third-party solutions will need to either use Veeams more general backup solutions or a different backup solution.  Additionally, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 doesn’t have many features to aid businesses in meeting regulatory compliance standards.

Druva inSync can support many software options, but for businesses that are mainly looking to backup Microsoft Office data, it can’t match the efficiency of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365.  Additionally, Druva inSync is not as simple to use as Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, so users will require more training to get the most out of Druva inSync.

Pricing

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 starts at $1.50 per month per user for a one-year subscription, though it is discounted slightly for three and five-year subscriptions. 

Druva offers three plans for businesses, with each one including additional features such as analytics and regulatory compliance, but the pricing for all 3 packages isn’t available publicly.  Businesses can reach out to Druva for a quote.

Likelihood to Recommend

Druva inSync

I can't think of scenarios it would be less appropriate or suited for, but it is well suited for an organization looking to keep their files in a safe environment with version tracking and audit trails. That is pretty much any organization in this day and age. Computers are great but hardware breaks down intermittently so knowing you have your files in a secure location that won't ever fail is fantastic

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

Anyone running an enterprise that relies on Office365 should consider Veeam for O365. Nobody is immune from data loss and this is a simple, easy to implement solution to protect your Office365 data. If you're already a Veeam Backup and Replication customer, it's a no-brainer to add this to your toolbelt. I have never met anyone who regretted having more backups.

Pros

Druva inSync

  • Restoring users and deleted files from both Cloud and desktop applications, with only a few button click.
  • The InSync dashboard allows me to see where all my assets are and when their last backups occurred.
  • The installation process was VERY easy. So getting everyone up and running was painless.
Marty Goldstein | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

  • Easy to use cloud backup.
  • More stable server to not lose information from my files.
  • Increased security against intrusion and data theft.
  • I access backups from anywhere; Another advantage for me is that I can access the information from anywhere at the moment.
  • We save costs by hiring the service with respect to having our own servers
  • We have a more scalable and upgradeable service to new technological improvements at the software and hardware level
  • Access to information almost instantly as long as you have a good Internet connection

Cons

Druva inSync

  • As part of the initial setup, we had a few issues surrounding large numbers of accounts being backed up at the same time. This was more a Microsoft issue than anything, and with help from support, we resolved the issue.
  • The email reports can be a little useless on occasion. For example, I don't need an email every day with a failed backup report if there are no failures.
  • Again with email, the weekly backup report has so much information in it that the email sometimes fails to load. A simple email with a link to click would be better.
Martin Tillbrook | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

  • Instead of "Backup everything" I would like the ability to "Backup everything Teams," "Backup everything Exchange," etc. Since we aren't backing up all user accounts I have to manually add new Teams to a second job.
  • When buying more licenses you have to merge the license files together in the portal; this could be done better.
  • Reports could be more detailed when something goes wrong.

We live in the cloud, Microsoft has some wonderful features, but the fact that you can't search and filter the recycling bin is a huge issue for us Admins

It fulfils all of the requirements my company has for a backup solution, and personally I find it the most suitable product I've ever used for backing up mailboxes, due to the ease of restoring items

Aside from Druva taking away the Share feature just to push folks to the cloud, it's perfect for what it does and should have just continued to grow not have clueless management decide they wanted to migrate the on-premise customers to the cloud version and offer the share tool for them, this was just wrong and remains wrong.

Veeam is incredibly easy to use and setup. If you already have an existing Veeam environment, it ties into it very nicely by allowing you to use existing repositories or Object storage that you have in your environment. The restore process is pleasant and intuitive as well. Backups can be very simple or you can pick and choose exactly what you want backed up

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.

Overall, Veeam support is excellent. The only reason I would not give it a 10 right now is it seems they have brought on several newer support engineers, and they do not have the people skills that I normally expect from Veeam support. Though I am sure this can be learned.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Druva inSync

My biggest requirement for looking at Data Protection as a Service is security, both in transit and at rest. Druva inSync offers one of the best security models where if a key is chance it does not affect the current session. Furthermore, we did not see the same dedupe savings with other services.
David Cordell | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

Various other utilities that perform similar functions are not hosted on-prem. This makes the export process slower but could potentially lead to scenarios where the backup data is in the same datacenter as the live data. Not ideal for a DR situation where an offsite backup is mandated. By hosting the backup on our own hardware we fully control the backup process.

Return on Investment

Druva inSync

  • Anytime a user does his/her own restore it has saved his or her own time in not having to redo the lost changes made and it doesn't involve IT staff to do a restore for them or to try looking for or recovering the lost/deleted/corrupted file. This savings in money and time spent is apparent, numerous and possibly priceless.
  • Druva is an affordable product; it's per user cost is acceptable and is affordable for even small businesses
Kristopher Mitchelson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

  • Our overall use has been fairly minimal as it's not a common occurrence for users to need their data restored so ROI may not be that great. However we know that the product works should we ever need to as per our regular testing
  • Our objective was to have a simple, easy to use tool, that any members of our team could pick up and use without any training, which is what this product has helped us achieve.
