If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Druva inSync, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
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.
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.
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 too high. We suggest trying this solution for the backup for 100 or 200 users from maybe the top management. People don't mind spending that much money on top management. The eastern part of India is not a very strong business area. In addition, people are not very comfortable with moving the data to the cloud. They still think that storing data on-premises is more secure. We have spent the past year educating the customers. I would rate Druva inSync an eight out of ten.
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.
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.
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.
