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

Pros
Works in the background and users are able to perform restores.It required very little ongoing maintenance once setup.It has quite a bit of flexibility in configuring backup sets.It had the ability to preseed by sending in a data drive and could restore by sending the user a data drive.Backup and recovery have been great, but I love having the ability to keep the hybrid type build which they offer.Security tools: Being able to monitor data going in and coming off our endpoints. Seeing what it is and where it's going is awesome.Low system overhead, setting retention policies, ease of use

The most important features are the backup and the availability of the Universal Explorer. The in-transit compression is great.The agentless backups are the big selling point on this, as well as being able to send out across sites so that I can do a restore at either of our two locations.We are now using it 24/7 because it is serving as an online backup, and very soon, the DR will activated on the product.We invest in the backup so the continuity of the data is not affected.I can choose a point in time and issue the command to back up and I don't need to go in and restore the last full backup and then apply iteratively, sequentially, all the incrementals... I can pick a point in time and tell it I want to go to that state and it's transparent to me. It happens in the background for me.The most important feature is that it performs disaster backups. That's the only reason why we use it, and it's going well so far. It's the only feature we need.We use it to maintain critical data and save it.It suits our needs, is versatile, and the functionality is there.

Cons
I would like to see more flexibility on privileges, perhaps create another kind of admin for regions. Also, I would like the ability to access logs without having to be on the actual device or a super-admin.​Due to recent changes that effectively abandoned an entire segment of their user base, I no longer trust nor can recommend Code42 products.The application, written in Java, required far more system resources on a Client than other solutions.More security would be nice, I would love to be able to remotely brick a stolen laptop and it's hard disk drive (HDD).Reporting could use an overhaul. It is very limited.Java, please get rid of Java.

The deduplication could be better. It doesn't give the level of deduplication that I would get with a product that's stored in a more standard file format. I would prefer to be able to use a non-deduplicated store on a third-party deduplicated medium.The only place where I would really want to see improvement, out the gate, is more granular scheduling... If I want to do an offset or to only do two backups on Friday and Saturday - versus whole hourly incrementals during the week - I don't have that granularity right now.We are still exploring its features, but we want to see more features that we desire over time.In the beginning, when we had some hiccups, I would chalk that up more to a learning curve for the product.One thing we have noticed is that we get various error messages in the Vembu console, but sometimes we, as the user, cannot remove those error messages. I have to chat with support and they have to log in to remove them.We had a lot of problems getting it configured in the first place. They also wanted us to allow them remote access to our machines without us watching what they're doing, which is a huge security risk for us. We said we couldn't do that, and they said they don't offer any phone support whatsoever.I would like to have a different set of products instead of having a single software which does everything.It is not a well-known software. People do not know about Vembu.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It used to be a good solution for SOHO in particular as it had unlimited storage for a reasonable price. However, their pricing model has changed and they are now primarily targeting enterprise users.It is 100% worth the cost to get and keep the support, especially when setting it up.They were the best solution and surprisingly enough, the cheapest.

The pricing and licensing structure are spot on. I don't think there's anything out there in the market that does either the licensing structure or the pricing structure better.The subscription model that we're signed up for is very good. The only thing that is something of a sticking point is the fact that you can't do PO-based licensing. It's all just credit card.The pricing could have been cheaper.It helps us deliver an enterprise-level data protection solution and reduce budgets at a price that - and we don't want to encourage them to change their pricing - is a great value.In terms of pricing, if we compare Vembu to other products that have the same functionality, those other products are a few steps higher on the pricing scale... I believe the difference between Vembu and Veeam - the biggest competitor - was $1,000 or $1,500.For someone who doesn't want the Application-Aware feature to work, everything else is up to par. The licensing is straightforward. They license it per CPU.One thing to note is that when you configure which virtual machine you're going to back up, if it's on one physical machine, they license it there. If it automatically fails over to a second machine, the license doesn't automatically move over with it. If they could make that a little more streamlined, that would be an improvement.I do remember that the pricing was based on a VMware or Hyper-V license, whereas on our end, it should be regarded as a VM-based license. I don't know why they make a difference at the Vembu level. We are currently on VMware migrating to Hyper-V, and we didn't want to buy licenses for VMware, but still have to buy them for Hyper-V. This the only thing which does not seem fully adequate.
