Review of IBM
May 15 2018
For initial setup, we followed everything in the large blueprint, and it was a smooth transition from there
What is most valuable?From a tech perspective: * Utilizing deduplication * No replication * Getting the virtual environment backed up using Spectrum Protect Plus on all of the databases.
How has it helped my organization?We currently use Tivoli Data Protection to back up our databases. Spectrum Protect is actually the application which backs up the file system data, then anytime you want to back up the databases you… more»
What needs improvement?I would love to see something which allows us to do an auto restart of backup jobs. Right now, we have it where we have health checks, and if anything that missed or failed, we monitor those. However… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We came from version 7.1.3. Based on some of the features which were offered in version 8, this was the focal point for us to say, "We need to upgrade if we want to take advantage of using container… more»
What other advice do I have?Look at all the products in the industry, then base your decision on the size of your environment. A lot of times products say that have cool things, but at the end of the day, scalability and… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We looked at Veeam and Rubrik, but right now, we have the two best products. We have Commvault and Spectrum Protect. Each one of them are the best at different things and each have their weaknesses… more»
Review of Veeam Software
Jan 09 2019
How has it helped my organization?The most important part is that we know we have a backup of the whole virtual server. We can restore the whole server if we want, or just take some specific files. I like this duality of the product. That's how I put it on virtualized software.
What needs improvement?The most important improvement would be for it to be updated to support new servers and we actually are in a situation that we are going to connect our Exchange service to a new one. They have to actually support new software as they are released and I think Veeam has promised to support new Windows… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The price is great. It's software related, and I know that might be a good thing because it's a cheap solution to buy and we have been looking for a program for backup and they fit the bill. The price of Veeam and its software related products enable you to have your own hardware. You can use your… more»
What other advice do I have?You can actually use the infrastructure you already have so you don't have to buy new hardware to actually start using it. That's the most important part about this solution.
Review of Micro Focus
Apr 18 2018
What is most valuable?It's supports Unix, Linux, all of the OS's. It's very stable software, we have been using it for many years now. It's great.
How has it helped my organization?For backup testing, previously it was taking a long time, because we needed to restore all the machines and systems. Now, testing the backup machines is very fast.
What needs improvement?The new backup systems are using new mechanisms for the recovery phases; for example, VM, recovery and testing the backup before recovering it. These features are not available in Data Protector. What we need to see is fast recovery and… more»
What other advice do I have?When selecting a vendor, first of all we need local support, here in our country, so that we don't need to open tickets with the vendor every time. A lot of times we need to open a ticket with local integrators. This is how we choose our… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?Commvault and Veeam, these are the options on the shortlist. We haven't made a decision because there are new features being added by Micro Focus to Data Protector. We need to see if the new features and updates - maybe up until the end of… more»
Review of Cohesity
Jan 24 2020
What is most valuable?The most valuable feature is ease of use. Even our manager can figure it out. It sounds like a joke, but really, it is that simple. Being able to tell Cohesity where to put the data and when, and let the system find out the logistics of how… more»
How has it helped my organization?While we're still new in the implementation, we are excited that we now have a single point of view for all of our backups. As we begin to roll out the virtual nodes to our remote locations, we're looking forward to not having to hassle… more»
What needs improvement?There is limited support for legacy systems, which is something that could be improved.
What other advice do I have?Officially, we do plan to implement this solution one day. We're new enough to the system, and we are excited about it enough that we are still in the 'Honeymoon' phase. With respect to legacy support, we don't have funds to stay up to date… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?Prior to choosing this solution, we evaluated Commvault and TSM.
