The general backup for replication and virtual standby are the most valuable aspects. It does what it says it does. It's a decent tool for not a big budget.The fact that it can take a snapshot of everything on a server and replicate it on another server in real-time is the most valuable feature.The solution offers a 100% guarantee that if it's backed up you will be able to restore it onto any platform you want.The best feature of the solution is the user interface.

It's buggy. That's a big problem. We're arranging to get rid of it. We're going to switch to Veeam.You can only take a snapshot from a virtual environment. It should have the ability to take snapshots from both a virtual and physical environment.Sometimes, when we have certain batches for Windows, it needs to be restarted. When it's restarted, the service is configured as a delayed start. Sometimes, you need to wait too long until it rights itself, or you have to do it manually.Rapid Recovery can only backup the machine or disc, but it can't back up from folders, and files, and things like that.

It's very expensive which is why I want to drop it. They charge us per core and we have a six-core server. It's expensive to pay for maintenance charges. I want to switch to something cheaper.

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.

Quest Software's Rapid Recovery is block-level, incremental backup software. Unlike the incremental feature found in legacy products, which backed up the entire changed file, Quest Rapid Recovery backs up only the parts of a file that have been changed.
