Phoenix CloudCache FAQs

► What is Phoenix CloudCache? 
Phoenix CloudCache is a dedicated server that stores up to 30 days of backups locally (to enables quick local restores), and then periodically synchronizes this data to Phoenix Master. Because Phoenix agents can communicate with Phoenix CloudCache on a local network, the speed of backups and restores increases significantly. Moreover, administrators can schedule synchronization operations from Phoenix CloudCache to Phoenix Master during off-peak hours, thus ensuring an optimized utilization of WAN bandwidth.

► How is Phoenix CloudCache priced? 
For exact pricing details, get in touch with your account executive. You can also write to the Druva Support team at support@druva.com.  

► What does the Phoenix CloudCache license depend on? 
The Phoenix CloudCache license is based on the storage space that you require for the data that you want to back up. For more information about licensing, contact your account executive or Druva Support (support@druva.com). 

► What difference will deploying Phoenix CloudCache make? 
You will see two major differences with Phoenix CloudCache. The backup window will reduce significantly because Phoenix agents can back up large volumes of data to Phoenix CloudCache via your network. Secondly, the data saved to Phoenix CloudCache can be restored at any time during the pre-defined retention period. Such local restores are faster, and they reduce the demand on WAN bandwidth. Additionally, data can be sent to the cloud during off-peak hours, which is ideal for sites with limited available bandwidth.

► How long does Phoenix CloudCache hold my data?
You can configure the number of days for which you want Phoenix CloudCache to hold your data. At the most, you can set a retention period of 30 days for your data. For more information, see Configure Phoenix CloudCache

► What is a good size for my Phoenix CloudCache?
The size of Phoenix CloudCache that you require depends on factors such as:
  • The number of server groups (and hence the servers) that you want to back up
  • The type of data backed up
    • Size of backup data (including incremental backups)
    • For more information, contact Druva Support

► How many instances of Phoenix CloudCache do I need?
The number of Phoenix CloudCache instances that you require depends on factors such as:
  • The number of server groups (and hence the servers) that you want to back up
  • The type of data backed up
  • Size of backup data (including incremental backups)
