Druva Phoenix

Durva Phoenix is well suited for the VMware platform and has great restore functionality during disaster recovery. We use a different VM platform so our disaster recovery has a longer timeline if there is a critical failure as we need to get a base OS loaded before we can restore the VM data to it. This is the tradeoff between an expensive VM platform and a near free VM platform. Druva Phoenix is well suited to file version recovery if a previous data state is required by your employees or customers. Very quick to restore.

Spanning Backup for G Suite

Spanning is well suited for backing up Gmail, Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, and Form data, as well as other file types including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Acrobat PDF, PhotoShop and InDesign files. It also backs up media files of all formats. It is not well suited to backing up Access databases. It can also not restore Google Form meta-data.

Pros

Druva Phoenix

  • Recoverability: The speed with which backups can be located and restored is the best I've ever seen.
  • Visibility: it's easy to keep an eye on what's successfully backing up and, more importantly, what's not.
  • Availability: Anywhere, anytime; if you need to recover data in a jiffy you're not tied to a specific local server interface - the web console is easily accessible from anywhere.
  • Simplicity: Configuration of backup jobs is straightforward and guides easily followable.

Spanning Backup for G Suite

  • Well, first of all it does what its name suggests: it backs up G Suite and does a fantastic job of doing so.
  • Recovery of files is as simple as locating what you require and hitting go.
  • The setup process took less than 30 minutes.

Cons

Druva Phoenix

  • Reporting, it can be hard to tell the actual amount of space consumed by a specific recovery point.
  • DRaaS is not easy to deploy since you have to work on AWS and Phoenix.
  • It does not provide a solution for Azure workloads.

Spanning Backup for G Suite

  • Administrative users can backup multiple accounts at one time, but can only restore one account at a time.
  • Management console navigation opens additional tabs, but I believe they are working to improve that.
  • It would be nice to be able to delete emails and files from user accounts from within Spanning instead of having to login to Google as the user.
  • Google Forms meta-data is not able to be restored to other accounts.

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

It's been pretty easy to get a hold of the Support team and they work well to resolve our issues. I wish I could email support directly (which we used to be able to do) versus having to login to the console and report an issue from there, that's a feature I'd like to see brought back but otherwise, their Support team is pleasant to work with.

Alternatives Considered

Druva Phoenix

Druva stacks up well against its competitors. I do not remember it being at a disadvantage in any category. Phoenix couldn't provide message-level restore on an on-premise Exchange server but after we moved to the cloud that requirement went away.

I've not looked at any other products as this met all my needs and was recommend to me.

Return on Investment

Druva Phoenix

  • This is a necessary service to keep your information safe. I would not say that there is a tangible ROI unless you reach a point where your server gets attacked and wiped-out. Then, you can recover your information in an easy manner, which could represent a potential several-thousand-dollar savings.

  • Nonprofit friendly pricing.
  • Scales easily to add more accounts.
  • No hardware to maintain.
