Cloud-based, secure, fast, and they only charge you for deduplicated data usage
Pros and Cons
  • "It's incredibly fast."
  • "The support of other cloud services needs to be improved. It has very good cloud support for AWS but not with others."

What is our primary use case?

We are a consultancy and a reseller. We offer solutions to our customers.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature about Druva is that it is 100% based in the cloud.

It scans the backups for ransomware. It has a security element, and it has unlimited uploads and downloads included in the price.

It has a granular approach to backup and restores so that customers can retrieve individual files.. 

It's incredibly fast.

It dedupes all your data and only charges you for the amount of data that's been deduped as opposed to what it originally sees.

What needs improvement?

It is based on AWS and works very well in those environments however, it works very well in multi-cloud environments.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is very good. It will scale from a tiny little SME company all the way up to huge corporations.

Our latest client has 4,000 employees. That will cover archiving, M365, cloud and on-prem servers from a single vendor.

Find out what your peers are saying about Druva, Metallic, Clumio and others in SaaS Backup. Updated: November 2022.
657,849 professionals have used our research since 2012.

How are customer service and support?

Technical support is very good. We have a good relationship with Druva and their technical teams.

How was the initial setup?

Very fast to install and deploy. We can arrange free trials to demonstrate it's capability

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

On-prem solutions are expensive to operate because it is necessary to assign a person to manage it and look after it. 

On-prem' is also expensive when you get to that time where it has to be refreshed, hardware has a lifespan. If they don't refresh, it eventually becomes unsupported and doesn't get any software updates, which means it is not secure. It won't have the same features and eventually just isn't fit for purpose. Why would anybody want to own hardware, particularly with something like backup, where typically you want your backup to be offsite?

You want backups like Druva to be away from your organization so that it can't get damaged physically or interfered with by physical access to it.

What other advice do I have?

By offering 100% cloud backup, Druva, Veeam, and a couple of others are competing against customers who have predominantly storage on-premise, and by having hardware you have something that is going to eventually run out of capacity. It will need power, air conditioning and space

It just doesn't make any sense, in today's environment, where we have fantastic amounts of bandwidth, both through dedicated links and through the internet, why would anybody want to own hardware and maintain it?

I would rate Druva InSync a ten out of ten.

Is flexible and simple to implement and use
Pros and Cons
  • "It is simple to implement and use. It's very flexible."
  • "The speed could be better."

What is our primary use case?

We will be using it to backup Office 365. It's for Exchange, OneDrive, and Teams, that is, it's for SaaS backups.

What is most valuable?

It is simple to implement and use. It's very flexible.

What needs improvement?

The speed could be better.

For how long have I used the solution?

It's not yet active, but it will be going in place within the next six months. We reviewed it over six months ago.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable and reliable product.

How are customer service and support?

Technical support staff were very friendly and responsive, and I didn't have a problem with them.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

It takes less than half an hour to deploy. The part that takes the longest is the one where you're defining your policies. It's a couple of clicks, and you're done. It's very quick if you've got the correct permissions; then it's just a matter of connecting your environment to the backup environment.

What about the implementation team?

We did it ourselves.

It can be done by one person if you've got all of the required permissions. If you've got your Office 365 permissions, you don't need anybody else if the person deploying it will be the same person who is going to manage the Druva environment as well. If not, two people will be required.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Out of all the solutions we evaluated, Druva inSync was the most affordable.

There are additional costs if you want extra storage. Other than that, there aren't any additional costs.

Their site explains the different features you get with the different types such as Elite, Enterprise, and Basic.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Veeam and Barracuda.

With Veeam, the problem was that it wasn't a SaaS solution. We would still have to build the infrastructure. There were one or two requirements that we didn't meet as well.

We wouldn't be able to do self-service backups and restores and would have to still get an admin to do it.

What other advice do I have?

Do a POC of what you have, once you have a clear understanding of the needs you're trying to meet.

There are so many offerings out there, and some of them give you more than what you require. If you know what you want and you have clear requirements, then you can actually simplify your choices.

I would rate Druva inSync at eight on a scale from one to ten.

Simple backup and restoration process, with flexible configuration
Pros and Cons
  • "The main benefit of this solution is that it automatically scans the files for ransomware after the backup is complete."
  • "I would like to see security improved in the next release."

What is our primary use case?

With Druva inSync you can restore at the file level, and you can also import the backup record into the extension level of your files.

What is most valuable?

It is not resource-hungry by default, and the backup and restoration processes are very simple.

You can configure it at any time.

The main benefit of this solution is that it automatically scans the files for ransomware after the backup is complete.

It protects during the backup from ransomware to ensure it is virus-free at many configuration levels. You can configure according to your requirements.

What needs improvement?

Druva inSync Some resources are used to possibly minimize. 

The use of an encryption key at the user level would increase security.

I would like to see security improved in the next release.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Druva inSync for three or four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Druva inSync is a stable solution, which is why we use it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Druva inSync is scalable.

We can add 10, 20, 30, 50 users on a yearly basis. But not nearly as much. Because we have a limited number.

How are customer service and support?

We have not contacted technical support, as we have not had any issues.

How was the initial setup?

The installation and configuration are both very simple.

We don't need much to install and maintain this solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There are no licensing fees.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others who are interested in using it.

I am very happy with this solution, I would rate Druva inSync a nine out of ten.
