What is most valuable?

The most valuable part of the solution is that it is fire-and-forget. Everything we've programmed into this Metallic SaaS offering is what they claim it to be. It's been… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see some of the code execute a little bit better when I add new licenses and assign licenses to users. I'd like to see that information update a little… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We are paying on a yearly basis and it comes out to about $3.80 a user per month. There are no other costs for the specific features that I have. If I was to use server… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using Backup Exec for a lot of stuff and ShadowProtect SPX, a StorageCraft solution. Now that we have this online, it's fantastic. Every product that we use from… more»

What other advice do I have?

The biggest lesson I've learned is to remind people that they still need to back up Office 365 emails. Just because it's not on their premises, they should still back it… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We really didn't evaluate other vendors because none of them gave me the options that I was looking for and that Metallic was offering: a low price per user, and storage… more»

My impressions of the backup and granular recovery of features are that they're constantly evolving and we've had such great contact with the engineering and development… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has helped my organization because we don't have to have tapes. We're not paying for tapes, storage tapes, or storage ourselves. It's definitely a bonus. We're more… more»

What needs improvement?

The navigation of it needs improvement in terms of the UX. The product itself, it works as expected. It's all user experience and user interface improvements that could be… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Metallic provides us with more predictable costs for our backup requirements. They charge us on a model that we understand. We understand the pricing model a little bit… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were on-prem before with an old version of Exchange, and we used old backup software to back it up.

What other advice do I have?

They do a fantastic job with their documentation, so you can follow their documentation and implement it. I would rate it an eight out of ten. We can't compare it against… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We investigated Backup Exec and Backupify. Backupify and Commvault were the top two. They were the two that we had narrowed in on, based on our needs analysis. We chose… more»

What is most valuable?

We're only using the endpoint backup solution part of it. It works very well. There's no impact on the endpoint. It runs in the background and it's something that you install and then forget about… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We needed a solution that could handle Linux and Macintosh and Windows, all together. Metallic seemed to be the only one on the market that could provide an all-endpoints SaaS solution. In terms of… more»

What needs improvement?

Adding new users who are non-technical can be a little challenging. You can push the software out through SCCM and install it that way, and that works great, but it would be nice to have another… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Our company used to use PC Backup but that's gone away and now they want to use OneDrive. A lot of executives feel that OneDrive is sufficient and that we don't need an actual backup solution. The… more»

What other advice do I have?

It's simple and it has very low-to-no impact on endpoints. It runs in the background and has some really cool features for the end-users to use on the computer, if they want to look at their backups… more»

We looked at PC Backup. We also looked at other cloud solutions. Metallic was the one that offered all the options.
