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

Pros
The command-line interface is good.In terms of stability, I've found it to be very stable. I've walked into the server room when it was at 60 degrees Celcius, and it was still running fine.The most valuable features are the Self-Service, and the ability to search the data.

The solution's most valuable aspect is its ability to back up a physical server to another physical or virtual server.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.

Cons
Setting up the system to work with legacy equipment is a bit complex at times.The configuration wizards are still complex and hard to navigate. These should be easier to manage.I would like the possibility to back up the infrastructure and then replicate it upon on restart, without having to orchestrate the starting of the VM.

The on-premises deployment model shouldn't have a maintenance fee. If there's going to be technical support, they need it to be free or it should be paid on upon adopting the solution.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.

This solution is very expensive.

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.
