Pros and Cons

  • Easy setup.
  • Their web UI is really easy to use.
  • The restore process is easy.
  • No extra hardware needed.
  • Small Files restore (like a lot of 1kb files) will take some time due to process they call rehydration.

Pros and Cons

  • Easy to deploy - Druva are a great company to deal with, and will help get things running, but like their other products, Phoenix is not difficult to implement if you know your stuff.
  • Great de-duplication - backups are deduped across the entire estate, leading to very efficient storage usage.
  • Phoenix is fast - backups complete quickly, even initial full backups are quick, relative to their size.
  • The UI is good, but a bit inconsistent. Some types of backups are shown differently to others. It never gets in the way, but a bit more consistency would be good.
  • The system is usage based, which is understandable, but a shock after using inSync, their other backup product, which is not. Careful planning and thought is needed if you are on a tight budget

Pros and Cons

  • Easy to deploy, it takes minutes to be up and running.
  • Easy to use and flexible, the web console is intuitive and makes it easy to configure and monitor the status of your backups.
  • Reliable. Once you have set up your policies and servers, it works by itself.
  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • It is easy to use.
  • It is cost-efficient in comparison to competitors.
  • It is HIPAA compliant.
  • They sign a Business Associate Agreement with your organization if necessary.
  • Depending on the size of your business, it can be cost-prohibitive since the minimum purchase is a year's worth of service.
  • You do need someone who knows what they are doing to set up the backups and make sure you don't over-consume your credits with crazy retention policies.

Pros and Cons

  • The global deduplication of data technology helps our data storage go 10x further than other solutions.
  • Easy to install and get your first backups going
  • Easy to restore previous versions of files
  • We haven't had trouble running the client on unsupported versions of CentOS, but we would like them to keep up as we won't sacrifice VM security because of the backup solution.

Pros and Cons

  • Automated Cloud Backup.
  • Easily installed.
  • Unattended - it just works.
  • Works well with Hyper-V.
  • Not really come across anything that I've been displeased with.
  • I've not had the need to do a complete restore so I can't speak to the restore process, individual restores work fine.

Pros and Cons

  • Druva Phoenix is easy to set up for our environment.
  • Support was immediately helpful for me.
  • The tutorials provided are very informative.
  • It would be nice to have more control over levels if different users - specifically in controlling what email notifications the second admin receives.
  • While the tutorials give great instructions, perhaps setting up some jobs could be a little more intuitive.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.
  • I'd like to see a mobile app.
  • The main (default) dashboard is a tinsy bit cluttered. By default, there are irrelevant entries for inSync and CloudRanger alongside Phoenix. I just want Phoenix, nothing else. I guess it's just their way of exposing their other products to unsuspecting users. A really minor niggle.
  • I can't see how to enable MFA; it's certainly an option for Druva's CloudRanger product. This might just be me being dim/blind.
  • It's always difficult to come up with negatives when you've only had great experiences with a product.
