Overall Satisfaction with Druva Cloud Platform

We're using Druva inSync across our entire organization. For us, it addresses the need for an endpoint backup solution in the days of remote work. With employees distributed across the US, we were in need of an endpoint backup solution that would allow us to retain data while reducing hardware costs, storage costs, and bandwidth in user homes.
  • Endpoint backup
  • Ease of use
  • Easy restorral
  • Unlimited storage options
  • Docker/Hypervisor backups
  • Auto-update capabilities
  • Google Authentication implementation is poor
  • Better identification of what is/isn't being backed up at a folder level
  • Reduction in time to data restore for users who have a computing incident
  • Set it and forget it
  • Touch-less restoral options, allowing IT personel to focus on other areas of work that need attention
We use Druva inSync for backup of the GSuite environment (Mail/Docs/Drive). It works extremely well and allows us to back up GSuite at a significantly reduced rate since we're using it for our endpoint backups. Really, when it comes down to it, it's a single-pane-of-glass interface for the primary systems that we need to be backed up.
We had a user in an extremely high-latency environment (satellite internet). That user was identified by Druva inSync as being non-compliant with our backup policies. We had that user come into the office to back up, which was successful. A few weeks later that individual left the company, and we were able to retain data and lock down access thanks to Druva inSync.
Overall, Druva inSync was the best fit for us, since we needed an endpoint backup that was easy to use, didn't require technicians to touch the device, and allowed for incremental backups. We would have liked an imaging option, but Acronis' imaging option required touching the computer, which we didn't always have the option to. We had demoed Acronis, MSP, and Metallic, and found that this was much easier both on the implementation side of things, but the restoral side of things as well. Also, their unlimited option was much better priced than others.
Implementation was extremely speedy. Their implementation of Google SSO stinks, but... overall it was a quick rollout, and easy to train my users on.

Scenarios in which Druva inSync is well suited.
  • Distributed workforce
  • Remote-work
  • Decentralized offices/computing environments
  • Cloud-based computing environments where less is stored on the device, and more is stored on the cloud.
Scenarios in which Druva inSync is less appropriate
  • Traditional office environments with local backup options and cost-effective local storage options
  • Docker/Hypervisor heavy environments
  • Low-Bandwidth/high-latency environments
