“With Druva, all of our backups are visible in one dashboard. Previously, we had to check a lot of different agents to see backup status, which required physically logging into each server or scanning through emails to see which backups completed and which failed.”
“The Druva dashboard allows us to see all 40 Windows server backups in a couple of seconds,” said Gavin.
Because RelyOn Nutec delivers the same courses in many different countries, a lot of their data is duplicated. Gavin said, “The deduplication that Druva delivers has reduced our backup volume by about 62 times. Because of this, we’re actually backing up 40% more servers in the cloud than what we had originally planned.”
“With Druva, we use the restore functionality instead of migrating data across the network because it’s much quicker for an endpoint to go direct to AWS,” said Gavin. Druva enables them to recover on-prem (failback) or in the cloud (failover) across any AWS region.
“When users move across geographic locations, we do a file-level restore where we overwrite or redirect to a different location. It’s worked faultlessly. I’ve not had a restore which has failed. Druva has been outstanding for both disaster recovery and restoring data, which improves our operational efficiency.
“I’ve done a full backup of a Windows server with about 60 gigabytes of data and a small application installed on it. The backup took about eight minutes, which was astounding. I don’t think you can get any better than that to be honest.”
“Even when we’re adding a new server onto the network, it’s never a full backup because we’ve already got the same operating system on Druva. This has allowed us to save over 30 hours per month on backups, which is huge compared to the troublesome systems we had before, like NetBackup,” he stated.
