[Micronet] Druva - Campus Backup- Status

Beth Muramoto
Happy New Year to all! I hope that all of you had a wonderful holiday with family and friends and are well-rested (hahaha) for the return back to work. I thought I was for the latter, but am finding that my refreshed state is already starting to wither…did you have users who seemed to have saved everything over the holidays for you to do in order to present them on your first day back and oh, have done by the end of the week? If not, then I'm truly "loved". Whew!

I didn't know whether this question was best suited to be asked on Micronet or to CSS, but any feedback is welcome.

Last year as we transitioned to CSS, one of the things that had been mentioned was a campus backup system called Druva. I haven't heard anything more about this, but wanted to know if there was any progress on this front or what the status of a campus back up system was. I don't even know if UC Back up is still in play. 

Reason for asking is that we're doing our own feeble attempts at backing up our administrative users, but it's proven to be labor intensive and time consuming and we're hoping to off load the "responsibility" to a campus-wide system at minimal or no cost.

Here's to another year of invaluable help and commiseration.

Beth

Beth,
Thanks for inquiring.

There was a targeted rollout of an on premise Druva inSync solution for end points in 2014. There are now over 1,000 customers backing up. We will be expanding the rollout this year. The initial participants were selected based on prerequisites and provided valuable feedback used to size the environment. In the coming months the backup team will be reaching out to departments to continue with the next phase.

While the next phases are being planned, we are in the initial stages of a Druva inSync cloud proof of concept and are seeking potential volunteers. If you are interested, a backup team member will reach out to you with a questionnaire.

Questions about Druva inSync can be sent to [hidden email] and more information is available at the following link.

You mean they did not call/email over the break with things to do with
outside vendors immediately and without prior arrangement?

You _were_ blessed 8-)
