With inSync Client 6.0.1 for Cloud scheduled in May 2018, Druva is introducing a simplified, intuitive client interface, redesigned workflows and other improvements as described below, which will make the end user's experience seamless and easy. Labels, messages, and instructions across the interface have been simplified for a better and consistent experience. The updated interface aligns with the standards used across inSync management consoles to provide an enhanced and consistent experience to the end users and administrators alike.
Links to detailed documentation for new features and enhancements will be available in the Release Notes at the time of the release.
inSync Client Updates for Administrators
* Regular Expressions support for endpoint devices
inSync administrators can now exercise more control over what endpoint data is being backed up by leveraging regular expressions (regex-based) exclusions for endpoint devices.
* Integrated Mass Deployment v4 to replace devices at scale
inSync now provides administrators an easy way to manage the device replace activity at scale using the Integrated Mass Deployment version 4 (IMD v4) process.
* Quick Configuration of My Pictures, My Music, and My Videos through Profile
inSync administrators can now quickly configure My Pictures, My Music, and My Videos folders for backup on Windows devices from the Profiles tab under the inSync Management Console
* Capability to identify and manage devices with the same hostname
inSync now uses the device UUID and Serial Number as the unique identifier to identify and manage devices. This method of device identification ensures that the user devices with the same hostname are not deactivated or replaced while using IMD for deploying inSync Clients.
* Enhanced configuration to restrict inSync activities on VPNs
inSync administrators can now block inSync backup and restore activities on VPNs by specifying the actual adapter name or device name.
* Capability to exclude Network Drive from backup
In addition to Windows devices, inSync administrators can now configure inSync to exclude network drives from backup on Mac devices. This capability is useful in cases where you do not want to backup network share folders.
inSync Client Updates for End Users
* Simplified Activation workflow
The simplified and enhanced inSync Client Activation workflow helps the end user to quickly get through the activation process and configure the device easily.
* Improved Add and Replace device workflow
The improved Add or Replace Device workflow displays a more streamlined interface, where complex steps and technical labels have been replaced with easy to understand labels and instructions. The new inSync Client interface provides a re-designed and simplified workflow to enable the user to add or replace a device easily.
* Intuitive Backup summary
The inSync Client 6.0.1 user interface displays Backup and Restore on the same screen, making it a user-friendly experience for end users to easily find the actions they need to perform to backup their data or restore content. Folder names displayed under Backup Content have been made more intuitive and labels and messages across the interface have been simplified.
* Updated Restore workflow
The Restore window now displays the recent snapshot instead of the entire snapshot listing. If required, the user can select the previous snapshots from the drop-down list. Also, the search capability has been moved to the center of the Restore window to allow users to search through devices and snapshots quickly.
* Enhanced Settings screen
In the inSync Client 6.0.1, the pop-up windows on the Settings screen have been updated and designed to give a seamless experience.
* Improved display of folder names
With the inSync Client 6.0.1, users can now see the actual folder names on the Backup Content and Restore Snapshot screens, instead of the system path variables that are defined by the administrators in the inSync Management Console.
