Druva Streamlines Global Windows 10 Migrations for Large Enterprises
Delivers Scalable, Unified Migration While Eliminating Risk of Data Loss
Druva, the leader in converged data protection, today announced that the company is eliminating the IT challenges associated with enterprise Windows 10 migrations, including accidental data loss, administrative overhead and loss of user settings. Addressing the challenges that are especially burdensome for large, global enterprises who migrate at scale, Druva inSync allows these organizations to easily migrate without interrupting business productivity as well as secure and protect data during the entire process.
“As enterprises make the move to Windows 10 from earlier versions, IT is tasked with juggling multiple users and devices – all while trying to protect data and maintain user productivity. Most migration solutions require considerable administrative support and don’t scale effectively past a few thousand end users,” said Dave Packer, VP Product Marketing, Druva. “Druva helps enterprises manage and simplify the migration process -- at scale. By providing continuous data protection both during and after migration, data is also protected against loss and can be easily restored. This saves organizations countless hours of IT time and user productivity.”
To support large-scale migrations to Windows 10, Druva inSync provides:
- Centralized Administration - enables the management of a global-wide migration for users and devices, while also addressing the unique privacy requirements in certain regions.
- Staggered Rollout - manages migration for multiple users at once in a more planned out approach, whether for a department or worksite.
- Persona-Based Backup - collects data and extended settings to aid in migrating users’ system and application settings, allowing users to return to their familiar “profile” environment without having to spend time reconfiguring device settings.
- User-Initiated Restores - facilitate the automatic restoration of data and settings on employee login to their new device, for greater efficiency for remote employees.
Druva inSync provides data protection and governance for laptops, mobile devices and cloud applications, such as Office 365, Box, and Google Apps. Druva has been rated highest overall for enterprise endpoint data protection three times in a row by Gartner Inc., most recently in the 2015 Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Endpoint Backup report.* The integrated platform provides non-intrusive data protection and immediate data access with extended capabilities for managing legal data workflow, compliance monitoring and long-term retention.
Druva has streamlined the Windows 10 migration process for numerous organizations, including the following:
“Using Druva to import user files and settings enables us to perform a clean installation of Windows 10 rather than an update, which can cause (at the very least) compatibility errors. Druva has also allowed for near seamless equipment upgrades, only needing to install a few pieces of software and letting Druva handle the rest.” – Kyle Farago, IT Support Specialist, Loenbro
“Our IT department recently completed our Windows 10 migration and Druva made the process very smooth. Very intuitive and great to have our files back quickly.” – Aaron Bolthouse, IT Manager, Hatco Corporation
“Windows 10 migration is a big task for IT admins. During the planning and migration process, we relied on Druva to back up all user data beforehand, and with Druva's Granular Restore feature we were able to restore any user data and settings that were lost during the migration with ease. Druva saved us from having to put out any fires.” – S. Seetha, Information Security Executive, TVS Motor Company
