BackupAssist Review

The system runs easily on both GUI and console hypervisors


What is our primary use case?

  • Backing up of Hyper-V hosts to an iSCSI device with data of about 6 TB
  • Three hosts with about 12 virtual machines.

How has it helped my organization?

  • We managed to have good backups which were easy to recover. 
  • Easy backup of MS Exchange and SQL databases.

What is most valuable?

  • Exchange backup and SQL backup
  • The system runs easily on both GUI and console hypervisors.
  • Can back up to different media/shares.
  • Backing up to hardware works great.

What needs improvement?

  • Has a few problems working with snapshots
  • Time-outs and failed backups
  • Has problems connecting to iSCSI when doing a restore from within a new installation of Windows.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.
