Operates at the Block level which means high efficiency in throughput for low bandwidth clients.

Deduplication at the Block level means high efficiency of space and backup bandwidth, mine is about 90:1!

Runs without user intervention.

How has it helped my organization?

Some 80% of our users are disconnected from the network, not on WAN, AD, or VPN. Druva backs them up over the Internet with minimal intervention by administrators. Restoration is likewise pretty hands-off, and the user can do it themselves. Druva allows us to be secure in knowing our clients are backed up.
