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.

Assure MIMIX

MIMIX is well suited when the organization requires a PLANNED Switch.MIMX will also work for any unplanned switches. However, this is not the most ideal situation and we have had to perform at least once when the older iSeries hardware failed, and the business transactions were on hold, impacting the business. MIMIX support was required to be called upon to assist. We were able to get the new iSeries online within an hour, so thankfully the outage to the business was miminal. It is important that any organization utilizing MIMIX schedule, prepare, and plan for the PLANNED Switch, at least once per year, if not twice per year.

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.

  • Redundancy - needs to be available at a moment's notice.
  • Protection - the business would be greatly impacted, therefore protection of production systems is key to the business succeeding.
  • Usability - needs to be user-friendly, easy to navigate and operate, as it will be required at any given time.

Cons

Druva Phoenix

  • personally, I find the menu structure to review a particular backup job cumbersome
  • we need the ability to have API driven (agentless) backups of Azure server workloads
  • for IaaS, phoenix must be cost competitive to platform backup services in AWS, Azure, etc.

  • Web interface needs some improvement. I can't recall the exact issue, but I do remember having to refresh the screen every now and then to see the update results as expected.
  • Overall, there were some known bugs in the version the organization was utilizing. These were reported and know to be bugs and hopefully resolved in future release.

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

Carbonite is unstable. It would continually fail, shutting off the service. Because the backup service wasn't running, it wasn't "failing to back up" so we had no idea when the service would randomly, without indication, shut itself off.

Driva has proven simple and stable.

Assure MIMIX

We used MIMIX for its role for iSeries high availability. We used Double Take by Vision Solutions for our production Windows environment. MIMIX is designed for iSeries, and Double Take was designed for Windows. We had VMware virtual environment, running multiple VMs for production ERP Lawson M3, now Infor. Both MIMIX and Double Take played the role well for what needed to be done. Without either MIMIX or DoubleTake, the business would have been impacted.

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.

  • MIMIX had a positive impact, as the organization has had to rely upon the unplanned switch.
  • MIMIX definite must if organization is running i Series, and business needs are 24/7.
  • Without MIMIX in place, the downtime impact to the business would have been great.
