Wesam QashouSenior Systems Engineer at a consultancy
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The initial setup is straightforward. It's not that complicated. Deployment took maybe about 15 minutes."
"The user interface is good."
"The best feature of the solution is the user interface."
"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 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 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 solution's most valuable aspect is its ability to back up a physical server to another physical or virtual server."
"The stability of the solution is poor."
"I would like to see the option of cloud-based management."
"Rapid Recovery can only backup the machine or disc, but it can't back up from folders, and files, and things like that."
"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."
"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."
"It's buggy. That's a big problem. We're arranging to get rid of it. We're going to switch to Veeam."
"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 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."
