Though it had legacy solutions in place to protect data on the VMs, Giusti and team felt compelled to look for a cloud-native data resiliency solution for Microsoft 365. So it sought guidance from partner Axians, which helped Transgourmet evaluate many solutions, including Druva. The Druva Data Resiliency Cloud stood out for several reasons. “The autonomy of the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud, its retention capabilities, and the fact that we did not need to invest in any infrastructure, hardware, or software made Druva stand out,” Giusti said.
“Before Druva, we didn’t store data in the cloud,” said Giusti. “In only a few months’ time, Druva paved the way for us to trust the cloud. Today, we can keep valuable Microsoft 365 data as long as we want — six months, one year, or longer. We are so pleased with Druva that we are considering using it to back up our data center servers, including the VMs,” he added.
The implementation of the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud was done very quickly, as the solution was up and running within one hour. Druva’s ease of use drastically cuts down on management time, as it can be implemented and used by generalists. Additionally, the connection with Microsoft Active Directory was done fast and backups started automatically.
“The choice of Druva was made on simplicity,” Giusti said. “There was no need to have great technical knowledge to set it up. It was done automatically after just three clicks. It was that quick,” he added.
