Druva Cloud Storage Review
March 11, 2012
Druva is a cloud storage company that is known for its top class solutions for data protection. With more than four years in business, the company’s clientele base continues to grow globally in a bid to meet the data storage needs of many organizations worldwide. With the internet leaving many firms vulnerable to data loss, it only makes sense to secure the all-important company records and information with Druva. With offices in the US, India and UK, Druva thrives on a unique and focused approach in trying to meet its client’s needs.
Druva approaches its product development with a solution mindset. After studying and understanding the problems associated with laptop backups and other integrated legacy devices, Druva came up with two lines of products, namely Phoenix and inSync for server and laptop backups respectively. The technologies embedded in these products ensure that clients get unparalleled data protection for their companies and organizations.
Druva inSync is the oldest of the two product streams. The product relies mainly on de-duplication of data in offering laptop backup for offices and even individuals.
Druva Phoenix on the other hand is relatively new as compared to inSync. The product caters mainly for remote offices and micro-servers by offering disk-to-disk data backup.
Features of Druva inSync
• Immense savings of up to 90 percent on storage and bandwidth. This is due to the data de-duplication feature which secures data by backing up only a single copy for many users thereby liberating bandwidth and space for storage. This in turn makes the backups faster.
• The product offers backups irrespective of the network, be it WAN, VPN or LAN.
• Integrated features to enhance your data security, such as data encryption, remote delete and geo-location.
• Instant access of data across the internet from your browser or Smartphone.
• Druva inSync has both inSync cloud and SafePoint products. The former is a private, Amazon powered virtual cloud product which offers laptop backups while the latter prevents data loss emanating from theft.
Features of Druva Phoenix
• It saves more bandwidth, backup time and storage space (up to 90 percent). This is because of the single copy duplication.
• Instant restoration of data in case it is lost. Moreover, one can access the data from whichever point.
• Remote back-ups that are highly optimized through the WAN network.
Security of your Data
