Azure Backup Review

I haven't had a failed recovery yet, the stability is good

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is to have in Azure or backup with a machine on-prem.

What is most valuable?

Its only feature is backup. That's literally all it does is back up and restore, that's it.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Azure Backup for five years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have no issues with the stability at all. So I don't necessarily care about the stability of the product. I look more at whether or not can I recover. And I haven't had a failed recovery yet. I have not had any failed recoveries of all my years. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is fine.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good enough.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Azure Backup is the only solution I've really worked with. You wouldn't know about the other tools. The only other backup tool I've done before was one called OmniBack, which you wouldn't know about because it's not sold anymore.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup complexity depends on the environment. On-prem can be complex to set up but the cloud is simple.

The time it takes to deploy depends. It can take anywhere from half a day or a few days, depending on the complexity.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is pretty good, maybe $30 for a machine, I can't complain.

Pricing is based on consumption base. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a ten out of ten and I would definitely recommend it.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
