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.

Veeam on IBM Cloud

Veeam on IBM Cloud is very well suited for doing data backup from the storage environment in the data center. It does this job well with an easy and straightforward user interface. There is minimal learning curve to get started. We wanted to use the cloud for backup instead of expanding storage in the data center and hence went with this solution. We do data recovery on a regular basis and have been able to retrieve data from Veeam backup in a very straightforward manner meeting the recovery time and recovery point objectives

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.

  • Complete file server restores in minutes vs. hours - perfect for a critical situation
  • Images for application upgrades

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.

Veeam on IBM Cloud

  • The reporting could use some work. If you have a client who has some serious audit controls in place, you may find yourself creating the report versus depending on the system do that piece for you.
  • My complaint would be with the notification emails. They are not configurable and come out regardless of whether a backup set completed or is still running.
  • The scheduling is a little clunky. It would be much nicer if the backup could be "continuous" anytime it's connected to the Internet (similar to Carbonite).

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

Veeam is very easy to use once fully on-boarded and trained. Part of the reason we can respond to a critical situation swiftly is that it is so easy to use. We did take 2 years to be fully comfortable with the product as we tested it with others, but once we committed to Veeam, there was no question about it.

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.

At the moment I cannot say anything bad about the overall provided services. It's holding me back to put the mark even higher as other cloud solutions have their advantages as well, so I can't rate this one higher than competitor ones. However the experience is really positive to the moment and it has delivered always.

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.

Veeam on IBM Cloud

We wanted the reliability of IBM and they deliver. The other vendors do not have a long history of customer service. It made it an easy sell with our executives to trust that a cloud operation delivered by IBM would be successful and worthy of their reputations. They did not trust many of the latest startups.

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.

Veeam on IBM Cloud

  • We save on staff time by reducing the man-hours required for backups
  • Customers wait less time for data (they were waiting up to hours before)
  • Complete system recovery for application upgrades - we had data loss problems with this before
