Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It has a straightforward installation.""We get control over authentication policies and create an agentless backup by generating a token for that.""The main benefit of this solution is that it automatically scans the files for ransomware after the backup is complete.""Druva inSync is very easy to use.""One of the most valuable features is it is available on the cloud, so I do not need to make a firewall. Second, the backup speed is outstanding. The third thing is that the section policy is very good and gives you a lot of flexibility and granularity regarding what you need to back up.""If you are looking for a backup solution, go with Druva because it's quite simple.""It's incredibly fast.""Our customers do not need to purchase third party storage or a separate server for data backup."

More Druva inSync Pros →

"Most importantly is having that island into that datacenter, and being able to address things in the same console. Thus, it is irrelevant where it's stored.""It's pretty simple. Once you set it, it goes; and then the idea of being able to get it to the cloud very quickly. It's kind of a set-it-forget-it.""You can store backups for a while.""The most valuable features of the solution stem from the fact that it is easy to use and integrate with whichever operating systems you use, providing you with a complete view, especially when you plan to migrate to some other operating system.""The solution can be used for all Office 365 applications.""It's so easy to work with.""Being able to move data seamlessly from one-premise to the cloud (Azure). It works great. The backup solution is perfect for us.""The deduplication engine. Right now, we're at about 10.5 to 11 times deduplication of our backup data."

More NetApp AltaVault Pros →

"The user quota is an area that needs to be improved.""The one area that needs to improve is the pricing.""This solution would benefit from the inclusion of an on-premise backup feature, as currently, they are offering everything in the cloud.""I would like to see security improved in the next release.""The speed could be better.""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.""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.""It would be good if bare metal backups were possible."

More Druva inSync Cons →

"NetApp's own competing products complicate things.""I would like to see more web support.""More capacity with the basic model of the AltaVault would probably help out.""I really want to partner it with the SnapCenter. We haven't implemented that yet. We're upgrading all of our stuff to the ONTAP 9, which you had to have.""There are some bits it could do better. With tighter integration maybe with Veeam, or something like that, it'd be really good.""The initial setup phase of the tool was difficult.""It's a good product, but it's becoming outdated and moving to their other primary architecture.""The solution needs faster indexing."

    With its cloud-native architecture, inSync offers scalable and efficient data protection across endpoints, cloud applications, and servers. It provides automated backups, ensuring that data is always protected and easily recoverable in case of any data loss or system failure. 

    In addition, inSync offers advanced data governance capabilities, allowing organizations to enforce data retention policies, monitor data usage, and comply with regulatory requirements. 

    With its intuitive user interface and robust security features, Druva inSync is the ideal solution for organizations looking to safeguard their data and ensure business continuity.

    NetApp AltaVault is a cloud-integrated storage solution created to increase recovery capabilities and lower cost and risks. It is better than traditional backup and recovery solutions because they are considerably slower, more expensive, risky, and can be too complex for the comprehension of many users. NetApp AltaVault solves issues related to backup, archival, and restoration. Compared to on-premises solutions, this software claims to be up to 90% less expensive while solving multiple issues related to data storage in the cloud. AltaVault presents three solutions to its customers: backup and recovery, cold storage and archives, and disaster recovery.

    1. NetApp’s backup and recovery solution works with Kerne-Based Virtual Machine, Microsoft Hyper-V, and VMware vSphere, creating a solution for mid-sized businesses as well as for bigger companies that want to protect their offices in different locations. The usable local cache capacities of this solution range from 32TB to 383TB, providing clients with enough storage for their important data while giving them the option to retrieve it if something goes amiss.

      2. NetApp AltaVault can be configured in cold storage mode and used for data that is not often used. The solution is scalable, thus allowing minimal costs for operating with cold data and allowing fast access to it at the same time.

        3. AltaVault offers disaster recovery for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. Your data will be secured on the cloud, providing you with a secure backup if the need for disaster recovery arises.

          NetApp AltaVault Features

          NetApp AltaVault’s many valued features include:

          • Data reduction: NetApp AltaVault applies deduplication and compression, reducing data up to a 30:1 ratio.

          • Network and cloud optimization: AltaVault can increase data transfer speed by up to 4 times due to its built-in WAN optimization.

          • Data restoration: Because data is restored from the local cache, recoverability is up to 32 times faster than other methods.

          • Deployment and scale: Users can choose their preferred method - virtual, physical, or cloud-based in Azure or AWS. Since NetApp AltaVault starts at 2TB and can scale up to 57PB, it is one of the most scalable products in its category.

          • Compatible with existing backup software: NetApp AltaVault is compatible with NetApp SnapMirror, EMC, IBM, Commvault, Veritas, and Veeam, meaning it offers a vast array of options for its users when it comes to backup software.

          • Cloud choice and agility: AltaVault supports NetApp StorageGRID, Azure, Google, IBM, and AWS. This provides users with the assurance that their data is safely stored, even if their cloud provider experiences technical issues.

          The benefits of using NetApp AltaVault include:

          • Efficient solution for data reduction
