We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I looked at this at the beginning of the year and I don't remember what the prices were for all the other services, but I thought that Metallic's was fair. It was also highly rated, which was even more important than cost because I need a reliable, secure, backup method."
"It is not the cheapest solution. I think the pricing is fair for mid-side customers. It is between all the other options."
"Hands down, Metallic provides us with more predictable costs for our backup requirements. You are getting what you pay for. If they are charging you X amount of dollars at that point, that is what you are going to pay. So far, I have not seen any hidden costs or any kind of gotchas. It is pretty cut-and-dry. They will let you know, "Hey, you are going to use our storage and it will cost you this much. You are going to use your storage, then we are going to charge you this much to backup.""
"It is not the cheapest solution in the market."
"The pricing model makes this solution more expensive than it needs to be."
"This is not a stand-alone product and requires a standard Veeam license for your organization in addition to the cost of the solution."
"We looked at a few cloud options. When we did the comparison, we found it to be a cost-effective solution, and it included everything."
"The licensing price is quite high. It's expensive."
"We decided on Altaro because, from the point of view of the total cost, Altaro looks cheaper than Veeam. Veeam has a lot of costs that are not clear when you start it, which makes it less flexible than Altaro, but only after half a year, you can be really sure that you made a good decision."
"Its price is a little bit high, but it is a fantastic solution. It is more expensive than NetApp."
"I have a per-user license for the number of users and the mailboxes that I have."
