Overall Satisfaction with Druva inSync

We use Druva inSync to solve the "problem" of Office365 backups. We use it across the business to backup all the content that all of our users have in not only their Office365 email but also their OneDrive and the vast amount of data we have stored in SharePoint. More recently, with the adoption of Microsoft Teams, we are now using Druva inSync to back up the files that users keep in Teams, as this is also stored in SharePoint.
  • Backing up all our Office 365 data.
  • Restoring any files, including email, is very efficient and straightforward.
  • Easy management. It's easy to set up and manage the backup processes.
  • As part of the initial setup, we had a few issues surrounding large numbers of accounts being backed up at the same time. This was more a Microsoft issue than anything, and with help from support, we resolved the issue.
  • The email reports can be a little useless on occasion. For example, I don't need an email every day with a failed backup report if there are no failures.
  • Again with email, the weekly backup report has so much information in it that the email sometimes fails to load. A simple email with a link to click would be better.
  • ROI has been positive overall. Our old backup method when we had systems on-premise involved staff having to visit datacentres to change tapes, etc. which cost a lot more in time and administration.
We only use Druva inSync as a solution for Office365. However, this encompasses emails from Exchange Online, SharePoint, and Teams data. Druva inSync efficiently and seamlessly handles these backups and has zero impact on any use of the system at any time of day. Users are then pleasantly surprised when we are able to recover data quickly and efficiently when the need arises. With large amounts of data stored in SharePoint and the increasing use of Teams, it makes us in the IT department look great when people ask us if the data is backed up!
  • Veeam Backup & Replication
We use Veeam to back up our virtual server infrastructure so naturally looked to Veeam when we wanted to backup Office365. The key difference here was the price. Veeam was several times more expensive than the Druva inSync and appeared to be a lot more complex and time-hungry to manage.
We started with a trial which we then expanded for all users. This was quick and totally seamless.

Veeam Backup & Replication, Tableau Desktop
The issue of backing up Office365 accounts is a popular one, and Druva inSync meets all the needs surrounding this topic. We find it easy to set up, easy to manage, and generally easy to use. Restoring files and email is very easy and efficient as well as being provided with several options as to how to restore and where to put the files. I can't think of a scenario with our use case where Druva inSync wouldn't be suitable.
