We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Technical support has been very helpful when we have issues."
"The most valuable features are the VMware VADP backups and the support for data domains."
"The VM portal and the CloudCatalyst are two of the solution's most valuable features."
"Good graphical user interface. It's easy to create policies and to do installs."
"The solution offers very good storage efficiency, so there's excellent compression and deduplication within the product that our clients really appreciate."
"The most valuable feature is the trouble-free operation, as we have not had many problems with it."
"The solution offers a lot of really great features that organizations can utilize and take advantage of."
"The most valuable feature is the disaster recovery functionality."
"The most valuable feature is its stability."
"The UI, the User Interface, needs to be improved. It's not as clean or modern as it could be."
"In terms of improvement, it's very difficult to make it work with multiple business units. Its security model is too constricted."
"It would be helpful, in future releases, if the solution could add WORM (Write Once Read Many) support right within the product."
"Lacks a reporting feature."
"It would be extremely helpful if the solution offered near-zero recovery time for SQL."
"The speed of restoring data could be improved."
"The only pain point we have with this solution is the cost. It's very expensive. In fact, it's so expensive we are looking for other platforms. We want to move away from it in order to save our organization costs."
"The support for new technologies is limited."
"The SQL Server backup features are not up to date."
"If you have a source size of one terabyte then they will charge for a one terabyte license, although what is actually being stored is much less."
"It's expensive when comparing to other solutions on the market."
"My licensing model is based on capacity so as we grow, the price we pay increases and it becomes too expensive."
"Licensing fees are charged based on the number of CPU cores."
"We are happy with the pricing that we have, but it's expensive."
"It is very expensive. The licensing cost for this solution is on a yearly basis. It is approximately 50k. We will continue using it at least for the next year, but we are currently doing an analysis to switch to some other solution."
"Pricing is good, under our budget, and flexible."
"A better price would make this product more competitive."
