To facilitate the school’s cloud strategy, David wanted one platform to protect and manage all of its data for very long retention periods. After learning about the Druva Cloud Platform from partner Aliva, David immediately saw what differentiated Druva: the ability to achieve data protection and management for Office 365 email and many other physical and virtual data center workloads through a cloud-native approach.
As a 100% SaaS platform built on AWS, Druva enables Ipswich Grammar School to do cloud-to-cloud backup for Office 365, as well as incremental backups for other data sources without ever needing to do a full second backup. For the school, this is delivering far more efficiencies than Veeam with faster performance.
The Druva Cloud Platform delivers comprehensive and secure backup, recovery, and archival for Exchange Online and our virtual environment. We’ve also done some backups and successful recovery on some of our older file storage,” David added.
One of the biggest differentiators compared to Veeam is Druva’s single control plane, which enables IT to easily recover server data down to the file level and restore deleted emails fast. Additionally, Druva’s global scale-out deduplication not only reduces bandwidth, but it also lowers storage costs, as customers only pay for data stored, post global deduplication, in the cloud.
