We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The recovery aspect of the solution is its most valuable feature."
"Our customers do not need to purchase third party storage or a separate server for data backup."
"If you are looking for a backup solution, go with Druva because it's quite simple."
"It has a straightforward installation."
"All the data is well encrypted. In addition, the data is split into pieces so that if an endpoint is attacked or compromised with any kind of ransomware, the compromised machine can be relocated or restored. All the data that was previously backed up can be restored from the cloud. It has a lot of security features. Druva currently offers only the cloud version on AWS. Being a cloud solution, Druva goes by a lot of security compliances and provides a security portfolio. People are very skeptical of the data security in cloud solutions, and Druva has given consideration to that. It has some good geo-location features. If a machine is lost, when the machine is switched on and connected to the internet, that machine can be geo-located and tracked. It also has got the geo-wipeout feature. If someone tries to take out the data from a lost machine, they won't be able to do that. The moment an IT admin comes to know that the machine is no longer with a user, he or she can auto-run the geo-wipeout feature so that the data cannot be read by any third party. Duality replication is a unique thing about this solution. Everybody's data is not backed up if the data is common. Similar data is not backed up from other machines. The data backup also happens very smoothly. The bandwidth choking is very less. When the data is getting backed up, the users do not even get to know. There is no impact even when the users are not using high-speed bandwidth."
"It's incredibly fast."
"The most valuable features are the support for both NAS and NFS."
"It's a user-friendly solution."
"The most valuable feature is the simplicity in configuration and use."
"The most valuable feature is stability."
"It gives you an option to back up to the cloud or back up to on-premise, or to backup to cloud storage."
"If I could have an accelerator or something to back up the solution on the cloud, that would be helpful. Also, it would be helpful if the accelerator could give me a buffer of a couple of days for any kind of immediate recovery on an offsite."
"The user quota is an area that needs to be improved."
"The user quota is an area that needs to be improved."
"The backup time is very poor. The backup runs continuously. It goes on from morning till night. The system performance also becomes very poor when Druva inSync is running. When the backup starts, the systems become very slow. You cannot work while the backup is going on. After the backup is complete, the system performance picks up again. I raised this issue with Druva, but they are not able to resolve this issue. They should analyze the reason for this kind of problem. They have asked for too many error logs, but how do we get logs from the laptops of the users who are unavailable because they are not working from a centralized office, or they are at a customer site or are traveling? Such users can only communicate through emails. This problem is not related to just one user; it is related to every user. There are so many problems in the Druva inSync patches. Sometimes, the software gets uninstalled automatically, and we are not able to find it on the client system. The users say that they didn't uninstall the software. So, how do we find out who uninstalled the software? If the Druva inSync client is installed on the system, the users should not have the right to uninstall the patch. There should be a security system and an admin panel so that the Druva inSync software is locked when it is installed on the client system. Users should not uninstall it unknowingly. A user should be able to uninstall it only after providing a password set by the administrator. They have given many other restrictions, such as a user cannot restore the data from his laptop, or a user cannot remove the snapshot from his laptop. They can also provide a restriction for uninstalling Druva inSync."
"Druva inSync is very high in price. A general customer cannot afford this solution. Even if the product is good, people cannot afford such a high cost just for taking the backup. This is a recurring investment, and the customers have to pay for it every year. Druva is also yet to develop the channel and the channel or partner commitment."
"The support of other cloud services needs to be improved. It has very good cloud support for AWS but not with others."
"I would like to see the graphical user interface improved to include all of the functionality because there are some things that you need to use the command-line interface for."
"For newcomers or people who have less experience, it's a complex solution that could be simplified somewhat."
"The features need to be updated to support the latest hardware, as it changes every year."
"Better integration with third-party databases and applications is needed."
"There are still a few things on SharePoint that they need to correct in terms of how they backup and restore."
"The price is quite good, It's approximately $4000.00 per user for one year."
"It's approximately $4000.00 per user for one year."
"The pricing of Druva inSync is very high as compared to other cloud backup solutions."
"It is an expensive product for the middle class or SMB customers in India. A lot of top-level big companies also cannot afford this solution. During the license period, one can download the entire data from the cloud without paying any additional cost. This way the data can be easily recreated from the stored data when a machine is lost or the data is compromised."
"My understanding of the costs is that the price is fair, and not too expensive."
"The licensing was based on a three-year subscription and the price is good compared so some other vendors."
"The pricing is more or less the same as what we'd get from Veeam on Office 365, so it's fine."
