The Druva Data Resiliency Cloud fills the backup and recovery gaps in both Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, which created vulnerability to data loss from accidental deletion and/or ransomware. Now, CityU’s IT team has peace of mind that the University’s data is protected 24/7.
Plus, the user-friendly interface improves the user experience and reduces the learning curve. The self-restoration function can potentially reduce the email restoration lead time from a few days to a few minutes. With proper training, it is expected that the on-demand self-help adoption rate will increase and thereby reduce demand on CityU’s IT resources for this type of request.
And since Druva is cloud-native, countless hours are saved by removing the need for hardware upgrading, software, and security patching. The Druva Data Resiliency Cloud simply eliminates all of these processes.
Additionally, the IT team has greater visibility into the storage that it’s using (about 160 terabytes), making it easier to control costs while also having the ability to scale up on demand.
“Druva was one of the few providers we found that had a straightforward pricing model,” Chu said. “We wanted transparent costs without surprises.”
Using Druva also makes it easier to comply with the University’s data retention policy rather than relying on Microsoft’s limited native storage options.
Most importantly, it helps the team support the modern needs of a top university, added Fung.
“We believe everyone at CityU deserves a cutting-edge experience, and Druva provides a solid foundation,” Fung said. “We’ve already given our users the tools to collaborate through Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace. Now, we can guarantee that their hard work is safe in the cloud.”
