New Feature

Introducing Microsoft 365 data protection and Governance services via Managed Service Center portal

We are excited to bring in the Microsoft 365 data protection and Governance feature for our Managed Service Partners (MSP) to help them adapt their portfolio of services to better align with the market demands and their customer’s changing technology and Cloud footprint.

With this capability, Managed Service Partners (MSP) can now provide holistic data protection and Governance offering to their customers who use the Microsoft 365 (M365) suite.

This capability is available in addition to the currently available  Hybrid Workloads data protection.

Benefits

Here are the benefits and a sneak-peek of the new offering for Managed Service Partners:

  • You can map Microsoft 365 for the customers to the tailor-made service plans (all editions), and subscribe to them to avail and use this feature. For more information, see:

  • Provision tenants for Druva Microsoft 365 Data Protection and Governance services, and manage the quota, storage details, number of users, and different statistical metrics to monitor customer health. For more information, see Provisioning a new tenant.

Customer action required: Contact your Druva account representative to enable this new offering.

Note

Due to this new capability, the following features  for both Hybrid Workloads and Microsoft 365 will  currently not be available  and will be  available in the upcoming release:

  • Compliance Alerts

  • Reporting  will display stale data.

  • Suspend customers

  • Delete customers

Enhancements

Flexibility to set backup frequency and retention limits

Lower (Min) and Upper (Max) compliance limits options are now added to the Backup Frequency and Retention limit section on the Edit/Add Service Plan page.

With this enhancement, you can now provide Lower (min) and Upper (max) limits for Backup Frequency (Daily or Weekly) and Retention (Daily, Weekly, or Monthly) while adding or updating a service plan. Based on the Lower (min) and Upper (max) limits provided, you will receive alerts if the backup frequency or retention period does not adhere to the set limits and thus helps you monitor and optimize data backup.

For example,  if you have provided 5 times (Daily/Weekly) as the Lower (min) and 10 times (Daily/Weekly) as Upper (max) limit for Backup Frequency, you will receive an alert if the backup frequency is less than 5 times (Daily/Weekly) and also when it is more than 10 times (Daily/Weekly).

For more information, see Create a new Service Plan.

Note: Compliance Alerts are currently disabled and will be available in the upcoming release.

UI improvements

With our goal to simplify the Managed Service Center (MSC) portal UI, we have made the following enhancements:

  • Service Level Agreement (SLA) dashboard is now renamed to Customer Health dashboard.
