Backing up cloud applications is never easy but Asigra gets it done

Re: Ahem...

Just my two centimes worth, while doing a comparison between cloud backup apps, I came across one called Druva which I found rather good.

However, their requirement was not cloud-to-cloud backup or VM backup, it was a need to backup multiple (1000s) of untethered, permanently travelling laptops to a cloud server. Since these users never went "home" to a server, they could never backup their laptop data to a centralized, secured location.

Individual backup to other media was not an option, for obvious reasons.

Druva could also back up Mac, Linux and Windows systems, another requirement. They had friendly, supportive staff. Basically did what it said on the tin and was written by people who understood RPOs and RTOs.

IMHO, Druva fit the bill quite nicely, even if the customer didn't choose it in the end.
