Overall Satisfaction with Druva Data Resiliency Cloud (fomerly Druva inSync, Phoenix & CloudRanger)

Primarily as a cloud backup and recovery tool in conjunction with snapshots for all AWS instances and workspaces in the cloud. Snapshot and AMI are also made with Druva Data Resiliency Cloud on a regular basis, for an immediate file or instance restore. Druva Data Resiliency Cloud also provides a schedule tool for up/downtime and a flexible policy to allow spin-up of resources, capture a backup and then spin down for cost savings.
  • File level restore.
  • EBS backups (separate from ec2-instance).
  • Offsite regional copies to second region in AWS (i.e. Virginia to Ohio).
  • AMI base image captures.
  • Policy feature could be simplified to allow second copy to offsite easier.
  • AD setup for Druva Data Resiliency Cloud/Office connector setup requirement for Domain controller side to AWS or Azure Premium Directory service.
  • Overall map of backup tier structure.
  • Druva Data Resiliency Cloud is resilient due to ability to have offsite stored in diff clouds.
  • Ability to utilize Amazon Simple Secure storage and glacier for cold long term storage.
  • Real saving by scheduling policy and instances uptime to create an image and then power down a system by scheduling, (very convenient automation).
We have Microsoft Teams Channels, ONE Drive, Exchange, and SharePoint all on Druva Data Resiliency Cloud online backup as well as AWS instances in the cloud. This allows us protection against email attacks and lost files from one drive etc.
Compliance is a big goal for our organization with PII or PHI, so Druva Data Resiliency Cloud allows incremental or full restorers, for applications like Microsoft Teams, Exchange, and Outlook. Retention policies per backup job can be set to retain data for as long as our legal hold requires.
Altaro VM backup for Xen and or Hyper-V, as well as MS Azure Cloud backup tools, were both tried and tested but could not support all the system types that Druva Data Resiliency Cloud can form one application interface console.
Implementation from cloud ranger to Druva Data Resiliency Cloud platform was a seamless integration experience to upgrade the policies and license for continual backup/recovery support. This may be one of the best "set it and forget it" apps for backup solutions, that also allow notifications for failures etc...

The scenario best suited for Druva Data Resiliency Cloud in our organization is the single pane of glass feature, where we can view all Druva backup schedules from a single console login. This gives us the ability to also use the Druva/Insync for Office365 SharePoint and One drive backup to save files for compliance and instant recovery from users' office apps location.
