Overall Satisfaction with Druva inSync

We use it to backup all PCs and laptops across the organization, both in branch locations and home office. We backup profile information as well as several custom folder locations that are specific to our organization. We have used it to restore data when replacing computers on a schedule, as well as in a fail scenario. We are currently using the cloud cache setup to help with internet traffic during business hours.
  • Profile backup, it pulls most of the profile settings which allows for setting up the user new computer much faster.
  • Custom folder backup - we use it to backup and restore custom folder locations, we do not backup the entire computer. This keeps are backups as small as possible but also allows us to make sure we get all the data that we have deemed important for the company.
  • The cloud cache servers help to keep the internet traffic down during the day and uploads the days information up to the cloud overnight when the bandwidth isn't at such a premium.
  • We have been having a problem with some of our devices going inactive and not backing up.
  • Backing up to the closest cache server and not to one configured server all of the time. This would allow our users the ability to backup quickly when traveling to the different branch locations.
  • Druva has taken the time to swap a device from several hours per device to less then 30 minutes until the user can begin working again.
  • Backing up the profile of the user has made for a better user experience when a device must be replaced.
We are not currently backing up cloud apps.
In the 6 months we have been using Druva we have not encountered this scenario.
Code42, Acronis, Carbonite. Our decisions came down to Code42 and Druva. Code42 had an on prem product that we looked at closely, but the cloud cache servers and uploading to the cloud is what pushed us to go with Druva. The ability to stage the data was the overall deciding factor otherwise they were both very good products. Acronis and Carbonite were way behind in the UI and general usability of the products.
We have had some problems with the setup of the cloud Cache servers and with devices losing connection to the cloud. Their support staff have been quick to help but it is taking longer to work out the bugs then we would have hoped.

Druva inSync is well suited to backup and restore remote locations where we can setup a cache server. This allows us to store information from the cloud overnight for restores and sends the data out at night and aids in keeping internet traffic in area that may not have high internet bandwidth in check.
