With most researchers having several hundred gigabytes of critical data on their machines and the need to facilitate global collaboration, an increasing issue The Institute needed to solve was data availability and backup reliability at the endpoint.
The team discovered Druva and quickly saw the benefits of cloud-based data protection for endpoints. “Having a fully automated data protection solution was a night-and-day improvement. Implementation of Druva inSync was straightforward, and we quickly saw trust established between the researchers and Druva. The platform gave them confidence that if anything happens to their device or data, it can be quickly restored,” said Perry.
With the success of endpoint backup came the demand for Druva inSync at three other institutes: The Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, The Institute for Molecular Bioscience, and The Centre for Advanced Imaging. Additionally, said Perry, “We expanded our implementation to protect virtual machines, servers, and databases as well with Druva Phoenix. Backing up our data to the Druva Cloud Platform enables us to keep the data offsite with high availability without the end user needing to think about it.”
With Druva, The Institute can easily scale on demand without procuring and managing additional hardware and deliver data protection to staff and researchers without dedicated IT resources. “I was able to easily show our security team how the Druva Cloud Platform protects our endpoint and server data and The Institute’s reputation. That was a big thing,” added Perry.
