"Great option for backing up important documents"

What do you like best?

I like how simple it is to get the backup going. It can be set automatically so you setup which files you want to backup and it will automatically backup at whatever time interval you choose. I also like that you can be anywhere in the world and backup, as long you set the types of internet connections you allow for the actual backup.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it lags so it uses up a lot of RAM so the fan on my laptop gets super loud. So if I am working on something important, I usually pause it and wait for a time that my CPU usage is at a minimum to backup. Also, sometimes it takes too long to actually collect the user data to start the backup, so that definitely needs work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you choose your file folders carefully because you don't want to backup things that aren't necessary. This will cause the backup to take much longer than it needs to be. Also, schedule the backup to when you feel you use the computer the least, so to ensure the backup process goes as quick as possible. In addition, internet connection and quality plays a big role in the success of the backup process. Make sure you are connected to a secure connection that has good quality connection.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I believe it solves the problem of having to store files on external drives, then having to carry those drives around. There are times you don't have the external hard drive with you so you cannot access a specific file. This way, everything is backed up so you know you can access the file from wherever you are in the world.

"A Silent Partner"

What do you like best?

Our company has recently started using Druva and it has definitely added a piece of mind. I have always carried around a thumb drive, backing up to it whenever I remember to, and knowing we now have everything important updated to a cloud based back up daily gives a sense of security for our data. The software is straightforward, easy to use and is configurable and managed by our IT department.

What do you dislike?

So far nothing to dislike has arisen, software works as expected and does a good job.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In a digital age filled with soft data and ever changing laws/requirements, having everything backed up is the best way to go. This software provides a simple solution that gives peace of mind and security.

"Efficient, technological and intuitive"

What do you like best?

I like the work that has been done on the new version since the 5.5, we now have a reliable tool compared to the 5.1

The MAPI part has been improved is now stable even with MS Office 2016.

The administration interface was redesigned with pragmatism.

The user support is always listening to help on IT projects, it is reassuring for the management of risks

The deduplication system is very efficient

What do you dislike?

It is not possible to customize the reports, it is nevertheless an option that was announced for version 5.8.1.

There is a difference between a fromscratch installation and an update (from version 5.4 to 5.8 for example).

Especially on the location of the InSync folders, this is a real problem for managing incidents.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is important to open a real project to study the need of your business. Notably on the choice of infrastructure. The location of the nodes and the installation via SCCM with activation by Token. Once the installation is in place, there is very little functional administration. Thanks to deduplication, the volume of data will take up less space. For example we use 67 TB for 152 TB saved, ie a deduplication of 55%

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Avoiding loss of data is the main business problem solved, there is also the possibility for users to access their data remotely through the WEB interface which gives a real benefit

"Druva inSync allows my mobile users to be truly mobile"

What do you like best?

Druva's backup client is easy to deploy and through profiles on the admin console it is also easy to specify the data you want to backup. The key to this though is the ability for users to recover their own data, this prevents a call to IT and decreases the user's non-productive time. It also allows you as an admin to have complete assurance that these backups are occurring through the reporting features.

What do you dislike?

I have not found anything about this product that I overtly dislike yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is one of the top products out there now in this space. If you are trying to find a way to make people more mobile and still be protected, this is it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Druva allows my mobile users to store data on the local harddrives of their laptops so access is fast and available no matter where they are. Then that data is periodically backed up whenever the user has access to the internet so if something were to happen to the machine or the data, we have a way to get it back. The PC migration is also excellent. Bring over all your user's files and settings to a new PC regardless of OS.

"Seamless installation and great technical support"

What do you like best?

We looked at several backup companies but decided Druva was the most cost effective solution. I deployed the inSync client all over the world. From the US and Europe to China and Japan our users were backing up their data in no time. Restoring files or whole laptops the process is easy and takes very little IT management. Highly recommend them.

What do you dislike?

There’s not much to dislike about the product. Our only major issue was a Microsoft update that made logging off a computer slow. Np fault of Druva and the had a work-a-round.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having our Sales staff finally backing up their laptops was very big for us. The ability to retrieve data from ex-employees is also nice. It also helps our service desk refresh a corrupted computer a lot faster.

"Excessive Backup solution software"

What do you like best?

Best in Druva inSync on premise is Outlook MAPI Backup and all the Client backup is safe in a place where no Virus\Malware is entered. Seamless backup and restore which can user can do by it-self. Especially to talk about Governance is the great feature to analyse the what files are exactly backing and how much they occupy, Deduplication is the best in it as we can do. 1:2 ratio. I can say it proud my organisation is 0% downtime on Userdata availability.

What do you dislike?

This is bit and sad to write but the reporting features has be to improved or flexible. InSync Should allow Administrators to create reporting according to their way of reporting, like querying the application to gather few information.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Client Data backup and restore from anywhere. 0% downtime of data availability.
