Good File Backup Solution

We switched to Druva Phoenix a few months ago. So far it has met most of our needs. Setup was extremely easy. It only took me a few hours to backup most of our servers. The solution is very fast and reliable while still having a very reasonable cost. Their data deduplication feature not only saves us money but it allowed us to be aware of how much duplicated data we had and was able to clean it up.

I gave the product 4 stars because it currently does only file and MS-SQL backups. I would like to see a system state backup which I am told is coming. If it had that then it would cover all of our needs.


The savings are real and this stuff works!!

We started looking into cloud backups after multiple acquisitions resulted in expensive and diverse backup scheme's across our enterprise. We needed a simple, inexpensive and scalable solution. We found that with Phoenix. Many of the other solutions we evaluated required us to manage our own infrastructure, yet they called themselves “backup solutions”; which really was just servers running on EC2 or supporting cloud storage endpoints. Further, and likely most importantly, the backup strategy they used wasn't as efficient as Druva’s Phoenix. The magic sauce that makes me so confident in this is the incremental forever and deduplication technology that Druva has invented. Where other technologies required taking full backups at set intervals (weekly/monthly) Druva doesn’t, after the initial seeding, it's always an incremental. The result is, lower cloud storage costs over time, shorter backup windows, and less requirements for bandwidth.
