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 using about 200 terabytes onsite, but we're getting two… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We were able to get away from tape for backups. Being able to backup directly to the disk and have it dump directly to the cloud means we're not 24 hours offsite, or 24 hour behind the times, where… more»

What needs improvement?

I really want to partner it with the SnapCenter. We haven't implemented that yet. We're upgrading all of our stuff to the ONTAP 9, which you had to have. You can set up different shares, but I would… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

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, and then there was the overhead of storage, moving it… more»

What other advice do I have?

It's super simple. We tried to overly complicate it and expected it to be overly complicated and it wasn't. From start to finish, within three days I had moved all my backup policies over to it, and… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We a NetApp shop, so we have multiple NetApp appliances. It was a no-brainer. We did look around but AltaVault seemed to do everything that we wanted it to do, so we took a chance and it's paid very… more»

What is most valuable?

* On-prem * Fast recovery * Moving away from tape and archiving to the cloud

How has it helped my organization?

We're still into the development, bringing it into production, but we had issues with performance so we're not fully in production yet. The jobs we have baseline into the AltaVault, it seems to be able to recover faster than the previous solution.

What needs improvement?

We would like * reliable monitoring * to be able to offload into glacier naturally, through policy * to unlock the file system restriction between the on-prem cache and the logical space.

What other advice do I have?

We use AltaVault for cloud-based back up. We have connected it to a public cloud service. I gave it a seven out of 10 because right now we're just performing at an average, it's not blowing away. If I were to advise a colleague at another company who is researching this or a similar solution, I… more»

What is most valuable?

You can store backups for a while.

How has it helped my organization?

We meet the requirement of having stuff that's backed to the cloud. It's eliminated tape-based backup systems. There is better security for backup data, because nobody can get it. It's encrypted, in… more»

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

The pricing is not too bad, but could be a little better.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We had Brocade, and then we went to this, AltaVault. We were looking for something to backup to the cloud that was easy to use.

What other advice do I have?

We're doing AWS S3 with Glacier with cloud-based backup. The integration is good. It works with Veeam and Commvault. We are using Commvault for our backup software. Most important criteria when… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

It was Riverbend or NetApp, and we chose NetApp because they have good support.
