Implementaion, configuration and maintenance are effortless and works well within our Microsoft infrastructure.
- Druval InSync is easy to install across the enterprise. The ability to quickly load onto systems already in the field or on the bench getting prepped for delivery is essential.
- Integration with existing security policy structure allows the configurations to be made and locked, preventing accidental or intentional deactivation.
- The integrated search functionality helps track down files across multiple sources without the InSync network.
- Relying on cloud services for retention can always be a risk, putting you in the hands of network connectivity which can result in some slow recoveries and backups at times.
- If there is a network interruption, the ability to perform a backup and queue the file for later transfer when a connection is available would be handy.
- Security and ability to recover from an incident in a timely matter
- Ease of user for both end users and desktop admins
- Overall cost savings
- Quick to deploy
- AWS storage recovery model takes way too long
- As with any Cloud service, an ISP can be a liability
For us here in New Orleans hurricanes are of great concern. In the case of [a hurricane] relocating your family from one location to another can be extremely hectic. With inSync we are able to move the data from on system to another with little to no interruption to our workforce.
Depending on your business case, it may be appropriate to keep your data close.
- Effortless file, photo, and document backup. The user doesn't even know they're being backup up!
- Super fast and reliable.
- Easy rollout for the IT Department.
- The GUI could be a little better for the IT staff, giving a more clear picture of what specifically is getting backed up.
- Simple it is to get the backup going.
- Be out be anywhere in the world and backup
- Good product, many processes are automated
- Uses up a lot of RAM so the fan on my laptop gets super loud
- Sometimes it takes too long to actually collect the user data to start the backup
- Internet connection and quality play a big role in the success of the backup process.
-Backup management, monitoring, and verification.
-Reduction of backup sizes thanks to deduplicating across the whole organisation.
-Data Loss Protection on laptops and mobile devices (encryption, deletion, and location).
We are now upgrading to the Elite Pro plan with unlimited storage. This is so we can also backup our GSuite documents, files, and emails but most importantly it will aid with GDPR compliance and alert us to the presence of personal data on any endpoint or cloud storage or email.
- Easy to use - The user interface makes it simple to set up and easy to administer. The client software is just as easy. Complaints/problems from employees have been minimal. Users can be allowed to restore their own files.
- It just works - We have 50 users on a 100MB connection and have not found the need for the cloud cache. Backs up quickly when you want and using the computing resources you specify.
- Highly configurable - You can completely hide the application from users or give them fine control over backup settings.
- Sometimes restoring a backup can be slow. Perhaps this is due to the Amazon storage being used.
- There should be personal and small business packages as it is so much better than any other consumer or business products. Currently only business accounts for 10+users are available.
Great with Mac, PC, iPhone and Android devices.
- Constant incremental backups at set intervals, only backing up new or changed data.
- The ability to tell it to avoid certain networks, such as hotspots for mobile workers to prevent data overages.
- It's very low impact on the workstation and the network.
- Every machine I log in to so I can perform administrative duties gets added as a machine under my username, that I later have to manually removed.
- No ability to open backups stored online and browse their contents for specific file(s).
- System can throw out many false positives if a computer hasn't been online for a while.
- The first and foremost thing about Druva is user friendliness for both administrators and users.
- Easy deployment and upgrades of clients.
- User is able to recover the data by themselves by using web or client.
- No performance lagging issues when Druva is installed.
- Only thing I am expecting are slight security improvements.
- While doing .pst files backup, it should compress at much as possible. Since these days users have more data in mail than [the] system.
- After upgrading to new version, the ability to roll back to the older version in case of any issues.
- Druva makes the backup process transparent to end users.
- It backs up critical data on a definable schedule.
- End users are protected without their having to remember to perform manual backups.
- I think it would be better if it were as easy to deploy to mobile devices as it is to PC's
- Druva is, for the most part, invisible to the end user. The majority of our end users have no idea what it is or what it's doing, until they have an issue and we can quickly restore their data. We're starting to educate our users, showing them that they can add other folders to the backup and can restore their own files if necessary. Very user friendly.
- Druva makes the machine migration process simple. Full restore of the user's desktop, files and settings with the click of a button based on their last backup.
- Implementing Druva was simple using SCCM and AD integration. The install is silent, no log in for the end user and the backups just happen.
- Initial backups can be lengthy and consume a lot of bandwidth. This is true for any endpoint backup system. Druva has methods of avoiding this (CloudCache) but with our workforce those methods didn't apply, we have too many field/remote users.
- Private Cloud
- DR Availability of data
- Instead of netting for storage node, if druva can develop a storage Node with the way client backs up to master that would be great. A lot of financial companies due to security reasons don't do netting in local servers.
- Mass deployment without AD integration.
- Granular client backups.
- File sync and share.
- Moving users between machines.
- I'd love to have locking of files in shared folders - I'd be happy with soft/opportunistic locking (so, lock if possible, warn if not).
- Easy to use: product is really easy to learn, manage as well as to use. We have implemented the solution without a need of help from external companies.
- Many easy ways to set up backup and retention policies.
- Outstanding, great support. Quick, polite, always willing to help. Really first grade support approach.
- Additional functions to backup, like DLP and mobile backup are great add-on functions, which enhance the core product functionalities in a great manner.
- Cloud and on premise choice.
- Self-service portal: users can restore data without need to contact IT support.
- No option to buy licenses, there is only a license lease.
- I cannot think of any more weaknesses at the moment.
- Scheduled backups which can be forced on users for the console.
- Restore of backups by the user as needed without the intervention of IT admins.
- Has apps which can be used for Android, iPhone and it works on the Mac OS too.
- Druva's backend database is complicated and if it gets corrupted recovery is difficult.
- Backup to the cloud with minimal setup
- Allows users to recover their own stuff from a point in time without calling IT
- Easy to manage
- Easy to deploy
- Newer product
- Small customer base
- New features are added but need to be more forward with the info on it to customers
- Installation of the client will go unnoticed by the user.
- Does not impact the performance of the client as far as we can tell.
- It just works!
- Ability to force at least one backup before letting the user pause a backup.
- Ability to backup the data and store if there's no network connection.
