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.

SysTools G Suite/Google Apps Backup

  • Very good for a backup that is also used for frequent access (like a remote HD) and is easy to share.
  • Not 100% reliable as a full copy (like TimeMachine) of the HD, but not far off.

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.

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.

SysTools G Suite/Google Apps Backup

  • Backup to Dropbox and other cloud services would be great.
  • Online backup to 3rd party cloud services that do not affect band-width on the user end.

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

Super easy usability is something you don’t find out there these days with back up utilities.

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.

Great over all for what the purpose is. Not needing to spend much time focusing on backup

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.

SysTools G Suite/Google Apps Backup

From my research, SysTools was chosen mainly due to its simplicity. Other software tends to add a lot of eye candy, which for me was not necessary. I needed something that I could configure and leave running in the background relatively unnoticed. SysTools provided that with little interruption to my daily activities.

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.

SysTools G Suite/Google Apps Backup

  • Reduces time of sharing files and working on them collaboratively, in fairly large groups. We stopped using email attachments.
  • Reduce recovery time from a faulty or retired PC.
  • Reduce time of recovering old and large files we do not keep offline.
