When Elligo acquired a company that had an on-premises data center, Druva was used to back up that data. The data was later archived to the cloud. What impressed Hatch about that procedure was the attention he received from his account representative. After Hatch deleted the Druva backups, their sales representative called the next day and asked, “Is everything okay? You lost half of your data. It looks like you deleted it. Was that on purpose?”
That gave Hatch a sense of security because as he puts it, “Druva is monitoring my account and telling me, ‘Hey, we see something unusual. Let’s talk about it.’”
Hatch appreciated how easy it is to use Druva when he thought back to his early days. Druva does one of the things he really wanted: “Automatically backs up new users when I create them and preserve them after they’re deleted.” He only needs to go into Druva when he must do a restore. In fact, his team of five IT professionals only spends about an hour a week managing Druva.
Hatch has even used Druva’s eDiscovery feature at a previous company to comply with a federal government investigation. Even though he was nervous, saying “I delivered it to the lawyer and thought, ‘Boy, I hope Druva makes this look good.’ The lawyers took the file. And said, ‘Thank you. This is perfect.’”
Hatch also uses Druva to provide compliance or audit trails. He said, “Druva is a solution that I can quickly and effortlessly provide detail at any level and institute policy changes on the fly if needed.”
Hatch said that since partnering with Druva, “It’s absolutely huge for myself and our leadership team to know that, with Druva, our backups are covered. Full stop.”
