Pricing Advice

What users are saying about Druva inSync pricing:
  • "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."

  • "The pricing of Druva inSync is very high as compared to other cloud backup solutions."

A secure solution with data encryption, geo-location, and duality replication features

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. It is a good solution from the customer's point of view. Customers are very happy with this solution. To adopt this solution, the mentality of valuing users' data is required in the customers. They should give a lot of value to users' data. In addition, they should be able to afford a backup for users' data. SMB customers can't afford this solution. Only profitable, big organizations can afford this solution. We mostly promote the Enterprise edition of this solution, and we are focusing on endpoint backup and cloud backup, but for both of these, the price is…

Good recover aspects, easy to set up and quite stable

Pros and Cons

  • "The recovery aspect of the solution is its most valuable feature."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

Druva has a tie with Azure. We did not directly choose Azure as our cloud and we've not engaged in the procurement of a cloud. Druva can be used on the desktop, for laptop backups, and on your virtualized environment backup. I would recommend the solution to others. I'd rate the solution ten out of ten as it currently serves my purpose.

Simple to use and integrates well with Office 365 and G Suite

What is our primary use case?

Druva offers two solutions: Druva inSync and Druva Phoenix. Druva inSync is used for desktop and laptop backup, whereas Druva Phoenix is used for cloud-based server backup. Druva inSync has helped us in backing up our Microsoft Office 365 files. I have seen multiple products but the integration that Druva provides with Office 365 is not offered by any competing product. We have a four-hour backup window, and machines are backed up at least three times a day.

Pros and Cons

  • "You don't need a certified administrator to manage this product."
  • "This solution would benefit from the inclusion of an on-premise backup feature, as currently, they are offering everything in the cloud."

What other advice do I have?

The beauty of the product is keeping it simple, rather than making it more complicated, which is what Druva did for a long time. As multiple features were added it made the product heavier and more complicated. We love the product and its offerings, and feel that it is the best product in the market.

It impacts the system performance, has poor backup time, and gets uninstalled automatically

What is our primary use case?

We use it only for the backup process. We have approximately 200 licenses.

Pros and Cons

  • "It has a straightforward installation."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

I would not recommend this solution to others. I am not happy with this solution. We got this solution for the cloud backup of our organization. If the cloud backup is not running and the user backup is not going to the cloud, then what is the point of using this solution? If users are having problems with their day-by-day work while Druva inSync is taking backups, what is the point of installing this software? We are planning to move to another solution next year. I would rate Druva inSync a two out of ten.

Trusted solution for endpoint backup with storage, and the technical support is good

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is as an endpoint backup and storage.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "The user quota is an area that needs to be improved."
  • "The user quota is an area that needs to be improved."

What other advice do I have?

If you are looking for a backup solution, go with Druva because it's quite simple. If you have a virtualized environment, Veeam is a good solution. If instead you have a physical database and are looking for a clustering kind of environment, Veritas is good. As a backup solution, Druva is the one that I trust. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
