"Incredibly simple and cost effective"

What do you like best?

It's simple to set up and start backing up data to the cloud. We saw 15x deduplication rates which has saved us a significant amount over standard data protection offerings that require hardware or tape.

What do you dislike?

I wish it allowed us to back up our local Oracle instance, but that's not supported today.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely recommend this solution if you want something that is as a service. It's simple to set up and administer, my back up guys love it. It's saved us significant money in the short term, so far. They use AWS as their back end, so I know it's safer than even my security internally.

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

We were seeing our data sizes growing and it felt like the hardware and tape guys were happy to just sell us more hardware and tape capacity. We heard about Druva from Gartner and liked the idea that we could store this all in the cloud at a lower cost than adding more hardware. We also liked that since it's an "as a service" offering we pay as we consume it, so we don't have the overhead and capex costs associated with hardware. We also have visibility to the deduplication and realize we were saving multiple copies and paying for more storage. With Druva Phoenix they dedupe it before moving to the cloud so we can see the dedupe rate and we pay less. We have seen a 15x deduplication rate and in the first 9 months a TCO reduction of almost 40% so far. We also have workloads on AWS and feel that Druva's new apollo offering will allow us to protect all out cloud applications, workloads and on premise data with one pane of glass, making backup and recovery easier.
