- Druva allows for user access from anywhere in the world on multiple platforms, such as mobile and web platform
- As an administrator, the auditing of the data is easy. When recovering the data you have the ability to recover single items or the who backup.
- managing users is also simple and hassle free with the admin console. applying permissions for access or creating retention policies is simple.
- I can't think of any thing off the top of my head that Druva really needs improvement as i didn't encounter any issues.
We use DRUVA as our Enterprise Laptop Backup application which is installed on all Windows and MAC based systems and is used across the organization.
DRUVA saves us a vast amount of time when migrating users to new laptops. The process before DRUVA took upwards of 2 hours per machine and after DRUVA we're seeing system migrations fall into the 10-15 minute time frame.
The executive teams are the most impressed by the reduced downtime to migrate them to another laptop when they are experience issues or are receiving a totally new machine. We all know how hard it is to impress executives!
- Druva is the "Ron Co" of the computing world - "Set it and forget it!" It just works!
- Some of Druva's competitors tend to use more resources (processor and RAM) at all times; during backup and non-backup periods.
- The ability to reduce network bandwidth works extremely well, especially for those power users who believe that any application or service running on their machine slows down the performance they need to work effectively. Not the case with Druva. When Druva is actively backing up during an idle state. When the end-user engages the system to start working the Druva client immediate reduces the processor, RAM and network traffic it's utilizing to allow for the machine to perform as needed.
- It would be nice to be able to backup redirected folders in Windows. This is not currently an option.
We have 200+ successful laptop migration (70% Windows and 30% MAC) either due to new laptop replacement, lost/stolen machine or hardware issues.
Not sure we have one specific scenario that was any more important than the other.
- Low impact on user work while it runs
- Easy to configure and to use
- All manageable from the cloud.druva.com via dashboard
- Great and detailed log that helps you solve the possible issue
- Sometimes the connection with Druva Cloud fails and the user keeps receiving an alert (sometimes is very annoying)
Suitable: When you have a good connection in your network in terms of bandwidth, you need to save a lot of data for each users, you need a system all manageable by the IT or the Users (require a bit of knowledge)
Less suitable: of course when you have poor connection and bandwidth, or you can't connect to the network/web.
- File backup - Druva inSync does a thorough job of backing up your local PC files and storing them to be used for restore when/if needed. This eliminates file loss in case of any failures.
- File restore - The restoration process is very valuable and works smoothly. The restore process can take a bit of time depending on how many local files you had backed up, but that is to be expected.
- In my experience, the only area for improvement is speed of restore, but that can hinge on several factors such as size of backup and location of files and transfer rate.
Druva inSync is suited for larger businesses where local file backup is needed on a large scale. This saves a lot of time and effort for individuals to make continual backups and store them for potential failures.
I could see it being less effective for a smaller business depending on the scale of local files they are dealing with and how much storage is needed.
- It uses cloud storage which allows flexibility.
- It can be integrated with Office 365 for SSO.
- Unlimited storage.
- I like it the way it is, there are a lot of options to cater to our back up needs
- Configuring SSO can be difficult
- Technical support can be hard to understand at times
- Allows select file types to be backed up
- Allow incremental backup
- Ensures proper security
- Self heal feature where if backup doesn’t happen then it guide users
- Auto alert with risk of not getting data backed up and keep logs
- Policy compliance
- Guaranteed backup and restoration
- Ease of operation
- Peace of mind
- Low on resource consumption
- Senior level reporting and dash board on mobile
- Regular audits and improvement areas
- Distributed users spread across the country that need data to be backed up daily
- In an scenario of attrition put user to legal hold so as to overcome intentional or accidental deletion of data
- We can add as many administrative roles as our organization needs, all within our control, so we can manage explicitly what the role can see-and-do.
- Helps us to set standards and guidelines in the legal e-discovery and investigations fields.
- Giving us complete visibility into any user activity in the organization.
- Seamless identified data backup even on less bandwidth.
- It's great, nothing to improve!
- Restore files when a hard drive has been wiped or a computer has been stolen.
- Backups files regularly.
- Makes it easier to move files from one computer to another.
- Navigation to a particular date or particular files can be difficult at times.
- Good point: Makes it easy to transfer user files from one computer to another.
- Not so good point: the navigation to get to a certain date or certain files could be better.
It is not suited for server backups
- Data protection
- Data availability and accessessibiliy anytime anywhere
- Perfect solution for end user backup
- Number of unlimited versions that itself is a huge advantage
- It would be good if Druva provided snapshots or images of the machine instead of excluding system files from backup
- Provide delete option in end-user client with permission from Admin
- Can provide online virtual machine copy of the physical laptop or pc with additional cost
- Centralized Management and visibility through a console
- Non-Intrusive client - works well in background
- Enables the user to restore data himself
- Secure - tracks user location to ensure data is not misused
- File search by extension feature lacking
- Dashboards are not customizable
- It accurately backs up specific files and restores to new destination
- Plus encryption works well for lost laptops for travelers in the field
- I wish the back up could be a little faster with the ever growing travel schedules
- There were some times back ups failed due to slow internet connection. It would be good if it was locally backed up and just transferred the back up to the cloud into a small package, so that way slow internet users will still have a back up
- you never really know its there once you set it up
- runs in the background
- interface is simple and easy to use
- knowing your data is secure and backed up is essential
- no complaints here it works as advertised with no issues from my perspective
- Easy setup of users allowing for anybody, even with no experience, to use it
- Good end-user interface allowing end-users to do their own restores, reducing IT support requirements.
- Works well with no support required.
- The ability for automatically adding users added to an Office365 tenant would be good, or a link to show users in the tenant not currently being backed up that you could tick to add.
- Simple, automated, deployment. We are linked to active directory and new and leaving employees are automatically enrolled and removed from Druva based on Active Directory membership. This allows the product to be nearly self maintaining.
- The software has minimal impact on the operation of the laptop. Users generally don't know it is there and running. Backups and restores are fast and easy to initiate.
- The mobile app provides access to all backed up data from mobile devices (even files not in your OneDrive, Box, etc. synchronization folder!)
- Over the years we have worked closely with Druva on modifications to the software to support full automation of the enrollment and de-enrollment of the product, including expiring stored backups based on retention parameters. These features didn't work as we would have liked them to when we initially began using the product but Druva was very eager to hear of our requirements and make modifications to support our needs. Beyond that we have not run into situations where Druva did not meet or exceed our expectations and requirements.
- Seamless cloud backups. Enter your administrator credentials in G-Suite and select which users you want to backup, and boom! It's done. Takes a few days to get everyone backed up, but there's nothing you have to do, everything is automatic.
- Disaster recovery is perfect. We have had users accidentally delete a critical email from a customer, and we were able to recover it within minutes.
- Data loss prevention is superb. Malicious users who leave the company can try to delete all of their work, but with Druva, we've got it backed up so we can easily restore it.
- The user interface on the administrator side is a bit confusing at first. It takes a bit to learn everything.
- We had trouble getting single sign-on to work properly with our SAML provider. Support from Druva was excellent, however, and got us up and going within a day.
- Cloud reporting is really good. I can easily see when backups succeed and fail. I get a weekly email with the reports.
- Easy to upgrade the software. I am able to manually push the upgraded version after testing. Able to push upgrade to all devices at once.
- Pushing policies is really easy, simply create and test the policy and under the user account you edit which default policy they use.
- Bootcamp partitions for Mac is tricky to get to work correctly. You need to install an older version, activate each partition, then upgrade after that. The reason for this is if you don't do it this way, Druva will overwrite the backups from one partition to another, rather than act as two independent backups. A bit annoying, but there's a work-around.
