We are able to easily back up our data and send it to an offsite location

What is our primary use case?

We use this product as a backup and storage solution. We have the need to back up mission critical data on a regular basis and this solution provides that service without any issues.

How has it helped my organization?

We are able to easily back up our data and send it to an offsite location. Before this solution, we had an unreliable and very expensive solution. StarWind changed that for us.

What is most valuable?

It is very easy to use and very cost effective. I've been able to administer this system with little training needed.

What needs improvement?

An improvement would be if they reached out to education customers with other available products.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.
