  • Hybrid Workloads (Phoenix) Cloud Update on November 22, 2021

    New Features

    Enable and disable organizations
    Do you have a single organization configured in your Hybrid Workloads (Phoenix) account? If yes, then you can now choose to disable the All Organizations menu on the Phoenix Management Console. By disabling organizations, you can access the protected workloads directly without first selecting an organization on the Phoenix Management Console.
    If you wish to create more organizations/sites in the future, you can always enable organizations.

    Support for MS SQL tail log backups
    Hybrid Workloads (Phoenix) now lets you backup SQL tail logs. This helps prevent loss of work while recovering MS SQL databases to their latest point in time.

    Ability for Support to access detailed job logs
    Druva Phoenix now enables Support to request for the detailed logs of the backup and restore jobs. When detailed logs are requested, Druva Phoenix triggers a Log Request job and also creates a corresponding audit trail for this activity. Support can use the generated logs to inspect issues and resolve them faster.


    Enhanced user interface for the VMware landing page
    The redesigned All vCenters/ESXi Hosts page makes it easier to view your VMware environmental information using the card view or list view layouts.

    Enhanced Storage page
    The Storage page is now more user-friendly with graphical representations. You can view the storage data segregated into warm and archive storage and how they graphically appear when compared to the total storage consumed (Source + Changes).

    Restore validations for MS SQL Servers
    Adding to the SQL restore validations, Hybrid Workloads (Phoenix) now checks SQL writers' status and checks the accessibility of the restore location before starting a SQL restore job. 

    Removal of Python backup support for NAS and File Servers
    After you upgrade Druva agents for NAS and File servers to their latest versions, the backups will now be performed using the Golang backup method instead of the Python backup. The first backup after the upgrade will be Full Folder Walk.

    Reduction in minimum scan duration for File Servers and NAS
    The smart scan minimum possible duration has now been reduced from 90 days to 30 days.

    Alert notification for File Servers
    An alert is now generated for scheduled backups, if a device is not connected for more than 7 days.

    File Servers restore pre-checks
    Hybrid Workloads (Phoenix) now performs validations checks before restoring the File Server or its data. You can take prompt remedial action before running the restore.

    Changes to the File Servers terminology
    The file server terminology is updated on the Phoenix Management Console for a consistent and intuitive experience. The existing instances of Windows/Linux Servers, FS, Files, and File Server are now renamed to File Servers
