What is most valuable?

It's pretty simple. Once you set it, it goes; and then the idea of being able to get it to the cloud very quickly. It's kind of a... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Simplicity and that it removed a lot of moving parts in our environment. Like I said, we were able to reduce a courier, simplify the whole back... more»

Free version. It actually does a lot. It ingests data from almost any source and it will push it out to almost any cloud. So it does everything... more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate??

It was too complex. It was complicated, the solution we had before. We had multiple carriers and tapes; and the backup, we were really trying to... more»

What other advice do I have??

We were refreshing our storage about two years ago and, at the same time, our tape infrastructure was due for a refresh as well. As part of that... more»

What other advice do I have??

What is most valuable?

The deduplication engine. Right now, we're at about 10.5 to 11 times deduplication of our backup data. That's really handy because we're only... more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate??

We were using LTO-6 and we were having to swap tapes out constantly. We were murdering our tape library so we had to buy another tape library,... more»

What other advice do I have??

Replacing an aging tape infrastructure by being able to backup to local cache as well as to the cloud.

How has it helped my organization?

We used to have a tape backup. The tape backup has so many operations and orders. With AltaVault, everything is automatic. There is no one who needs to babysit and manage... more»

What needs improvement?

We use it in the plants right now. We use NetBackup just as a cataloging service, so if NetApp would probably make it in one box (integrating it), then it would work better to... more»

What other advice do I have??

AltaVault is very economical. You don't need big expertise to manage this product. If you are working school and building a table, this is the best product. You can make it very... more»
