What is most valuable?

A lot of customers have the misconception that when they host their data on the cloud, the cloud providers actually protect the data. Meanwhile, cloud providers are generally responsible for the availability of the service. The data is always the responsibility of whoever owns it. Nobody can ensure… more»

What needs improvement?

A lot of people when looking for backups usually consider a lot of sites. With the Veeam Backup application, you can have really good compression and deduplication ratios. That means you can save lots of space on your backup storage. With Veeam for Office 365 for companies that require long-term… more»

What other advice do I have?

Honestly speaking, lots of people just look at it from a business point of view. They say, "I just have a business need. I just want to backup my Office 365 data." But they don't take much concern into what that also requires. Generally speaking, from a backup point of view, the biggest concern is… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

There are other options, because Veeam backup for Office 365 is the software, which you can put on your own platform by backing up from the internet, or you can install it on any Windows VM on the cloud as well. There are other options like NetApp, which has software in the server, in which you… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the integration with cloud services. I do not have to use an external application, such as Veeam, to back up files or VMs. It works like a standard… more»

What needs improvement?

Technical support for this solution is good but it can still be improved. The user interface is a little bit confusing and it could be better. It took some time to learn, although I was able to read… more»

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

The pricing of this solution is ok, but I'm expecting that the price will decrease in the future.

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

Previously, we used other backup solutions, but this is our first cloud backup solution. We used to use NetBackup and a backup solution from HP, but these were on-premises deployments. We chose… more»

What other advice do I have?

I came from a Unix environment in the past, and I was not really a Microsoft or Windows users. Now, however, I'm more confident with Microsoft products. I worked for HPE for a long time in a private… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have used many different backup solutions, and in my experience, none of them will do everything. Each of them has pros and cons. You have to choose a backup solution based on several aspects… more»

What is most valuable?

The BackDating feature which allows us to go back to any point in the past at one second granularity, is an amazing feature and allows us to recover from any mishap to our… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our ability to respond to any data damage has improved dramatically. Performance has also improved substantially.

What needs improvement?

Scalability. Reduxio has only one product, they don’t have an option, for now, to expand the storage product.

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

Reduxio’s licensing model is quite attractive. All licenses are included in the product pricing.

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

Yes, we used a different product from one of the large storage vendors. We switched because the service contract ended.

What other advice do I have?

First impression was that "it's too good to be true" and we wanted to see if the product really does deliver all the capabilities that were presented to us. It's not "just… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

What is most valuable?

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

What needs improvement?

The solution should improve the reporting functionality. The pricing could be adjusted. The on-premises deployment model shouldn't have a maintenance fee. If there's going to be technical support… more»

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

The licensing costs are quite reasonable; they aren't the most expensive option. You do have to pay an extra amount every three years.

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

We have used other solutions, including NetApp, in the past. It was quite expensive to set up the infrastructure and maintain it which was why we switched.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. It wasn't deployed for users. It was deployed for backup purposes for our servers. It's just the IT administrator that handles it. It's doing everything on its… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at three other vendors but we ultimately decided on this solution because it had the ability to function well with our existing infrastructure.

What is most valuable?

That it backs up everything, except Linux.

How has it helped my organization?

The product has been there ever since I have been there; the enterprise system along with the hierarchical system. It is pretty easy to use and maintain. I do not run it all the time, but I can get in and do what needs to be done. When I have to do disaster recoveries, I can do it with this tool.

What needs improvement?

I should be able to backup Linux. I would like SUSE for Linux on POWER. Right now, we have to use Storex, which is a pain to use.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have used HPE. I have also used NetBackup. NetBackup seemed a little more intuitive, but it did not do near as much. This will do a lot more.
