Overall Satisfaction with Druva inSync

Druva inSync is a wonderful product. Not only is it just backing up data, it also speeds up the machine refresh time by not having to copy all of the users data off the existing machine then back on. Just do a restore and you're good to go. Having access to your data via your smart phone is also very nice to have. Also, because of the Crypto type malware going around, we don't worry about trying to clean the machine, we just reformat and restore. Saves a lot of time.
  • 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.
  • Faster machine refresh time.
  • Faster malware recovery, reformat and reload.
  • Legal Holds.
  • Copium
Doesn't even compare!! Light years ahead.
Druva inSync is well suited for those that travel a lot for business or for an IT staff that is refreshing machines a lot. The only less appropriate area would be if you don't have a reliable or have a non-existent network connection.

Evaluating Druva inSync and Competitors

Yes - Copium - We're bought out and phased out.
  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
  • Vendor Reputation
Usability was very important to us.
Wouldn't change a thing. A team evaluated and tested each product.

Druva inSync Implementation

Take a phased approach to make sure the clients are backing up. Training for the users needs to be done as well so that they can manage their own clients.
Change management was minimal - Nothing was changed since we were coming from another product.
  • Decision between Cloud and On-Prem
  • Storage crashed just after implementation
  • Getting all the clients rolled out (over 1000 here in North America)
