We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The initial setup was simple and easy. Anyone without prior experience can install, configure, and use it.""The intuitive interface allows you to set up and perform backups and restores easily.""Reverse Delta is Altaro proprietary backup deduplication technology. With Reverse Delta, the latest version of a file is always made available in its entirety, not as a delta file.""This solution is stable.""The ease of use of the solution is its most valuable feature. The interface is also excellent.""The product has many valuable features for handling backup needs, including replication, live migration, and incremental disaster recovery.""All of the features are fantastic and also the management from Microsoft dealing with multiple machines is great. The whole package is excellent for me.""The CDP backup feature is very nice, as it allows you to take backups at high frequencies and with application consistency."

"The Veeam Backup and Replication Suite is very user-friendly.""The ease of use for the graphical interface and the ease of installation are the most valuable features of this solution.""The solution is very simple. Management of the platform is so simple that we don't need to have any training to deploy this solution.""It's most compatible with VMware. It can restore single files instead of having to restore the whole machine, once again leading to savings for the company.""The initial setup was straightforward. It's not complicated. It takes around half an hour to implement, but it depends on the performance of the server that you are installing the backup software on.""The solution is very user-friendly and has an easy to use interface. We can manage it easily. It allows for a simple backup.""The really amazing feature about Veeam Agent is that when you're using the central deployment model, you can actually use the instant VM recovery feature, which is really a pain point that I find some days.""The technical support is good."

Cons
"Availability of physical server backup would be an added advantage.""Migrating the physical through a backup and restore to a virtual environment would be very helpful.""The initial set up was complex, and I was not able to do the set up myself.""The scalability of the solution is limited.""Replication is not fast, the GUI could be more user-friendly, and technical support is lacking in Iran.""If you look into the performance of a virtual machine and you look to the performance of the physical machine, the correlation between these is totally unclear.""To improve Altaro, I would like to see the ability to choose more than one backup location at a time.""The application could include a feature to install a set size of data, such as the ability to store a single application with all its registry information for easy transfer."

"In new releases, I hope they can support Oracle cloud.""It could use deduplication features.""Scalability, if you are talking about Linux, is good. However, if you need to backup more types of solutions or Unix systems, like HP/UX, AIX, etc., it's not compatible.""It's scalable, but it's not scalable on every platform.""In terms of the physical environment, I'd like them to integrate it with other kinds of solutions. We don't just work with Microsoft or Linux, but other kinds of infrastructure data as well.""It would be much better if more applications were supported on the Linux side. For example, their agent for Windows not only can back up the Windows machine, but it can also back up Active Directory for granular restore, SQL servers, Exchange, Oracle, SharePoint, etc. When it comes to Linux, only Oracle databases are supported. There are workarounds, though.""In the next version, I would like to see an increase in the locations online. I have found that other products have good pickup location.""We are currently waiting for the continuous backup process."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"​By implementing the solution at multiple locations, significant cost savings were achieved.""Altaro VM Backup is affordably priced. It is a best value for its price and has almost every feature that an expensive, popular product offers.""The pricing is okay,""VMware is a little pricey, but it is a good solution and priced similar to other products.""Altaro had the best prices and ROI in the whole bunch that we evaluated.""The price is great for the utility you get and the licensing has never caused any issues with my company."

"Licensing costs are $300,000 USD yearly, and we pay for three years at a time.""It's a subscription based license, which is started on a yearly basis. Currently the licensing is split between three editions: standard, enterprise, and enterprise plus. As long as you check the comparison between the additions and make sure that you have what you need, there are no extra costs with Veeam.""The solution is rather expensive and I think the price is too high.""The costing is very competitive."
