We're still old-school. We have a tape backup system that we use for the majority of our servers. onQ is kind of like doubling our protection. We like the fact that it's a complete disaster recovery solution, so if we ever lost a server, we could spin it up virtually and get our server repaired and nobody would miss any work or have even noticed a difference, other than possibly a little speed, and we're not even certain they would notice that. We also use it for general file recovery every once in a while when somebody deletes something they shouldn't have. We use that scenario as our test, every now and then, to go in and make sure we can still recover stuff. We use it for "insurance." We're in central Florida and in the Panhandle and it's a hurricane-prone area. We want to have things covered as much as possible, which is why we back up to the opposite office. We have one in-house server in each of our two offices. The box in each office cross-replicates to the other. We try to put as little in the cloud as possible. We are slowly moving some things to the cloud, but as far as company data goes, we really want to manage that in-house as long as possible. View full review »

We mostly use it for disaster recovery and high-availability. In case of a server failure, we can deploy a server and have the location up and running instantly, within minutes. And then, once the location closes, if we need to, we can do a full restore of the server to new or similar hardware. If it's something as simple as the server going down or becoming unresponsive, we can bring it up, use it for what's needed, and then just transfer the files that needed changing. View full review »

The primary use case for us is a high-availability. The ease of use is a part of that as well. The ability to spin up a backed-up VM or to put it on the production network, literally in a matter of minutes, if a VM goes down, is critical for us. View full review »

Server Administrator at CBX Global
The onsite version keeps our backups for all of our NOC servers, which is everything operational. We get backups every four hours or so, and should something happen — someone deletes something or a server's hardware goes out — we're able to restore that locally, very quickly. The Quorum will run a virtual machine, the recovery node of the server, from the latest backup, within minutes of having an issue. Our deployment of the solution is both on-prem and cloud. We're only sending a few specific servers to the Quorum cloud, which hosted by them. We have our onsite device as well which backs everything up. View full review »

IT Manager at Trinity Logistics Corp
Backups, file recovery, DR capability, and instant VM recovery are our primary needs and the OnQ system does those expertly. Our infrastructure is a combination of hosted and on-prem. Co-locating our HA appliance in the data center near our SAN environment provides a knockout combination of speed and security, and the environmental fears are not present. This bunker approach protects our primary HQ data and also backs up remote servers across our WAN. We cover all our bases by protecting every server and VM in our environment, and even our specialty machines. The HA/DR appliances also provide us with a rock-solid implementation of DR.

The primary use case of this solution is for the instant recovery of servers and security. Our customers generally have in the range of anything between 20 to 75 servers. Corporate and enterprise customers purchase it for their on premises requirements. We not only recover the servers, we ensure recovery of the business process and that's very important. We have a partnership with Quorum. View full review »

Director of Technology at P&S Investment Company, Inc.
This solution provides us with business continuity. It is far more than just a DR, or backup solution. It keeps our business up and running with redundant backups of business-critical systems and files that would shut us down if lost. I would suggest this product over all others. View full review »
