Pros and Cons

  • What we like about this application is that it allows us to backup and restore information from other applications such as OneDrive, Sharepoint and many more.
  • At the same time, one of the most important features is that the restoration processes are really fast.
  • Likewise, the amount of bandwidth it uses is very minimal.
  • We found that the application only manages functions of the profile that is logged into the platform, it does not take actions of the whole team by default.
  • Also, we found the usability and navigation through the administrative console to be a bit complicated.
  • Similarly, the application issues notifications excessively and does not have a section for customizing them.

Pros and Cons

  • Ease of deployment
  • Ease of use for IT and end users
  • Ease of data recovery
  • Low Cost
  • The only area of concern has been the storage quota per user. While pooled we cannot fully back up everyone 500gb laptop drive without going over our quota.

Pros and Cons

  • Easy to use for both end user and administrator
  • The central console is clear. You can see the backup status of each user and/or device, track the location of the device, and update the endpoint agent version.
  • Mobile access to your backups
  • Backups may not work well over a reduced bandwidth internet connection.
  • You cannot add single users to your license.
  • It would be nice to have a mobile app for the administrator.

  • Better way of "offboarding" users

Pros and Cons

  • PC backup. In today's world of failed drives, crypto-ransom, and theft a good backup is an absolute must.
  • Ease of data restore - The user can easily retrieve previous backups of data, add additional folders or drives to the backup, and even pull data from a PC backup down to their mobile device for review remotely.
  • Data compression/dedupe and file filtering - The compression/dedupe/filtering processing that Druva inSync does is amazing. It not only saves on the footprint that the backups take but the technology also minimizes the amount of data transmitted on every backup. This results in shorter running backups and minimal resource drain during those backups.
  • I honestly can't think of any points of improvement at this time.

Pros and Cons

  • Cloud-based backup of client data works well, use of bandwidth is appropriately managed in order to ensure it does not saturate the link.
  • Recovery of client data can be done directly back to the device in the original folder quickly and efficiently, restoration back to an alternative location can also be achieved should it be required.
  • Administrative and legal searches work well and enable finding of documents relatively quickly and easily.
  • The Druva inSync mobile app is clunky to use and does provide an easy method to edit documents from a mobile device which some of the competitor products do.
  • The Druva inSync PC app does not allow for a right-click restore function, instead, you need to use the full client which is more time consuming and less obvious to a typical user.
  • Druva inSync is natively unable to backup files in OneDrive which has become a common business tool.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.
