What is most valuable?

The automated backup of multiple virtual machines. We can back up two hypervisors, one is Microsoft Hyper-V and the other one is VMware Hypervisor.

How has it helped my organization?

It hasn't improved things, per se. It's an essential service, done automatically. I would say it is an essential backup system that matches the alternative solutions at the moment in a relatively cost-effective way.

What needs improvement?

It is very easy, unless you know exactly what you're doing, to corrupt the virtual machines and they get locked up. Just brief detail: When you are creating a system, if you don't have absolutely every other little background processes in... more»

What is most valuable?

When it comes to backup software, one of the biggest things that I use to enjoy about StoreGrid, this changed recently, was the support. I enjoy the ease of the UI and how simple it is to use compared to other products.

How has it helped my organization?

The biggest improvement has been the ability to allow us as an MSSP to continuously gather extra revenue from this software, so we can use it to back up our clients' data offsite. This is one of the reasons why we enjoy the product and we've... more»

What needs improvement?

What is most valuable?

One thing I’m very much impressed by is the compression ratio. The rate at which it compresses the data during backup is really very good. In fact, I’d say it’s better than Symantec Backup Exec. I have Backup Exec, in my environment, and I... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The main improvement is the compression, the space. I back up one particular server with close to 1.2 TB, and the way the software compresses it is close to 600 or 700 TB. Vembu compresses it to close to 450 gigabytes, that's gigabytes. So... more»

What needs improvement?

I do have one suggestion for them. The process is a bit cumbersome when you remove an agent, delete that job, and add the agent to the same server. Even though the agent is already installed in that server, the system does not recognize it.... more»

What is most valuable?

* Ease of use * Configuration * Support

What needs improvement?

Live support would be helpful. I've communicated with them via email and through incidents. It might be better if you could have a chat or phone call because backups are important. You don't want to wait for an email. I know of other vendors that have a number you can call; they have people around the clock. It would be good to have a number you can call and... more»

What is most valuable?

* Snapshots * Constant backup for SQL, application services, and Active Directory * External disaster recovery * Small memory footprint when running It's also easy to use because of the graphical user interface. It's simple enough for a child... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The backup is constant so it makes things simpler for me. To put it simply, it just works.

What needs improvement?

I suggest that the dump of the database have the option to either be backed up to Vembu Cloud or be backed up to all backup sites and not only to default storage. If the backup server crashes I create another backup server and use the backups... more»
