Overall Satisfaction with Druva inSync

We are using Druva to backup all data within the organization. We currently have a mixture of physical and virtual servers and Druva backs up everything. We backup the data twice a day and they are very quick.

Restores are also quick. We can restore one file from within a virtual server, a complete virtual server, SQL database or files from physical server. Druva maintains as many backups as you want. We can restore the first daily backup from two weeks ago if we want. We do a test restores monthly on both physical and virtual servers, we have had no issues.

Interface is easy to understand and navigate.
  • Hands off backups - set it and forget it. notification sent if backup fails.
  • Restores are quick and complete - virtual server can be restored from certain date and time.
  • Would like the ability to delete backups. Over time, the number of backups will use up data limits. For certain servers, would like to be able to delete older backups. If a server has been upgraded and operating, would like to delete backups done before the upgrade to save space.
  • Would like DFA to use texts to phone. Currently DFA sends email with code.
  • Improved cyber-security.
  • Increased peace of mind.
Used NovaStor for several years, but during a minor cyber security incident, the NovaStor console was corrupted. Spent hours waiting for the console to be reinstalled to access backups. Druva can start reinstalling within minutes.
Help protect organization against cyber attack. Local backups are susceptible to deletions/encryption from malicious attack. Online backups are protected. Access to Druva requires DFA, so unauthorized access is difficult.

Contacted support twice, fast response and solved one issue on first contact. Second issue solved on second contact.

Using Druva inSync

Very easy to use. We maintain older hardware to restore files/virtuals if needed. Restoring to a different server is quick and easy.
