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

Pros
The storage backup is very efficient.This solution allows me to restore either the VM or the data, depending on what is needed.

The solution is really very stable. One good thing about it, compared to other products, is that you can just run it and forget about it. Unless you come across some interruptions in the network, it works like a charm.We chose this solution for the availability of the databases. We can't afford Oracle Grid, this is the best solution if you want something similar that's less expensive.Technical support is very good. If at any time we write a ticket, we get the appropriate answer on time.Oracle Data Guard is a free solution. When you apply for Enterprise Manager, it comes for free with the solution.If you have a problem with your primary site and can't access your primary database, you can continue working with the database that you have as standby on the other site, by changing its role to primary.Another valuable feature is the possibility of backing up the database from the standby database instead of the primary database, to avoid backup process overhead in the primary system.

Cons
The support for Office365 backup is atrocious and is something that has to be improved.The user interface is a little bit confusing and it could be better.

The implementation is complex for anyone who's jumping into it without any experience. It's all command-line driven implementations. For some, that's a turn-off.For every standby server you have, you must pay a licensing fee, which is the main disadvantage.The database administration needs improvement. With Oracle, we have a lot of features for administrating data, but it might be too many. It needs to be simplified. It should be automated. Looking at Enterprise Manager, there are too many KPIs in place.Oracle Data Guard is stable, but you need to keep monitoring the system all the time. You need to keep monitoring the archives.I think it would be great to have a graphical interface assistant (like DBCA, ASMCA, NETCA, etc.) for initial configuration, monitoring, configuring Oracle Data Guard Broker and all the Data Guard Broker commands, without needing Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control installed.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing of this solution is good, and it is one of the easiest things that you can sell Azure with.The pricing of this solution is ok, but I'm expecting that the price will decrease in the future.

Overview

Data is the heart of any organization and backing up this data is a key part of a business strategy. Azure Backup is a scalable solution with zero capital investment and minimal operational expense. With the optional integration with System Center Data Protection Manager, you can protect advanced workloads running in your datacenter in VMs or on physical servers.

Oracle Data Guard ensures high availability, data protection, and disaster recovery for enterprise data. Data Guard provides a comprehensive set of services that create, maintain, manage, and monitor one or more standby databases to enable production Oracle databases to survive disasters and data corruptions. Data Guard can be used with traditional backup, restoration, and cluster techniques to provide a high level of data protection and data availability.
