What is most valuable?

* The quality of compression and deduplication is better than other products. * The WAN acceleration allows us to send less data through our WAN lines. * The easiness of the suite. * The reporting tool, Veeam One, is very powerful and helps... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Let me start by mentioning that, before Veeam, my company used to backup data with Microsoft Robocopy. Backup times now are more than ten times faster and the data to be moved is only a fraction. This behaviour has been improved with the new... more»

What needs improvement?

Determining the space for the WAN acceleration server sometimes is hard, especially if you have many source sites for the data. I would like to have a kind of storage space calculator that gives me an estimate for the size of the WAN... more»

What do you think of Code42?

Valuable Features CrashPlan's always-active backup ability is crucial for ensuring that end-user data is protected at all times, any time they are connected. • Improvements to My Organization Our researchers are often working remotely, and enabling protection of their data even when they are away from our servers is key. User-driven data recovery is a huge time-saver as well. • Room for Improvement I would love the ability to export archives of old backup data in a .zip or something like that, but the system currently requires a restore to a workstation directly. • Use of Solution I have used it for 5+ years. • Deployment Issues We have not encountered any deployment issues at all; very fast and simple to roll out and configure. But support is very willing to walk...
Reduxio

Apr 05 2018

What is most valuable?

We were also pleased to learn that Reduxio also has, beside dedup and compression that actually works, the "time machine" built in, which allows you to go back a few seconds or a few minutes before a ransomware attack gets you. For us, in the... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved our backup and recovery window, because you can have two Reduxio machines linked up, so every block that changes on the primary storage array gets replicated to the secondary storage array. If one side or the other goes bad,... more»

What needs improvement?

The only thing that I'd like to see, at some point in time, is having the storage array being able to detect a ransomware attack. When you get hit by a ransomware it rewrites every block in your guest's virtual machine. So there should be a... more»

Technical Consultant at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Mar 12 2017

What is most valuable?

It is more user-friendly. It integrates into a virtualized environment very easily.

How has it helped my organization?

The major issue we are facing in this product is Sybase database integration. We had resolved this somehow with the help of HPE by making changes in some Perl file. However, it was not included in the next patch release. In the next upgrade... more»

What needs improvement?

Old bugs or old issues should be implemented in the new releases if they are discussed with the technical team.

What is most valuable?

It is very easy to set up and get started. Almost too easy. We racked this device and had it up and running in less than 15 minutes. The racking of the appliance took the longest, as it is heavy.

How has it helped my organization?

VM backup is much faster and more reliable, as I can test my backups with Data Copy Access jobs.

What needs improvement?

We have a huge VMware infrastructure with multiple hosts that use local storage. Backup jobs of VMs seem to target one host at a time, so if there are 10 VMs on that host getting backed up, it hammers that ESXi host until sometimes the jobs... more»

What is most valuable?

Key features: * Easy to install and use * Built for virtual environments * Multi-hypervisor support * Offsite backups boosted by WAN acceleration * File and Exchange item level restore * Backup live VMs with no downtime * MS VSS Integration *... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Altaro offers two VMs at no cost. This has helped us to eliminate the implementation of expensive backup solutions at remote offices, which had two instances. The free version is in no way inferior to the paid version and had all the features... more»

What needs improvement?

Availability of physical server backup would be an added advantage. Migrating the physical through a backup and restore to a virtual environment would also be very helpful.
