Configure organizations

This topic describes the following sections:

About organizations

In Druva Phoenix, an organization is an access-based control mechanism that helps segregate resources that do not share any data. Organizations share storage, cloud administrators, and customer license. You can create organizations based on the geographical location of your resources. You can also create organizations based on the entities within a corporation that need complete logical partitioning of their data and configuration like backup policies but need a common dashboard for storage used and credit consumption. You can also either use the Default Organization or create one or more organizations in Druva Phoenix.

An organization internally manages servers and policies within that organization. You can't access servers, administrative groups, and policies of one organization from other organizations. You can assign an organization administrator to an organization. The organization administrator has complete control over the assigned organization but not over the other organizations.

Select the Default Organization

  1. Log in to the Phoenix Management Console.

  2. On the menu bar, click the drop-down next to All Organizations and select Default Organization.

View the All Organizations page

The All Organizations page provides details of all organizations configured in the environment. You can see all the workloads configured for backup in that organization. You can also see the number of configured backup sets, the source+changes data, and the last backup status for each workload.

Workload

  • If there is more than one File Server, MS-SQL Server, or Windows Hypervisor (HyperV), the workloads are further segregated into the backup sets per File Server, MS-SQL Server, or Windows Hypervisor.
  • If there is more than one vCenter/ESXi server (VMware) or NAS device, click the number of Backup Sets or Last Backup Status to view information on each NAS device or vCenter/ESXi server.

# Backup Sets The number of backup sets per workload. Clicking the number takes you to the backup sets page for that workload.
Source + Changes An aggregate of full and incremental backup data at the source per workload. The Source + Changes information refreshes once in 24 hours.
Last Backup Status

The status of the last backup per workload. This column displays the total number of backups:

  • That were successful
  • That completed with errors
  • That failed
  • Whose backup window expired. 
  • That were never backed up

Clicking the numbers under the Last Backup Status column takes you to the Backup Sets page for that workload. The Backup Sets  page is filtered to display all backup sets of the status that you clicked on. For example, if you clicked the number under Failed (Red Cross icon) for the Files workload, you are taken to the File Backup Sets page. This File Backup Sets page is filtered to show you all the backup sets whose last backup has failed.
