Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most useful thing is that it provides a snapshot of your environment in about 15 minutes. It is stable, and it always works. It is also scalable and easy to set up.""The most valuable feature is the visibility of what is happening with our business as well as the good reporting and dashboards."

"The most valuable features I have found to be Instant Recovery, quick restore and rollback, and asynchronous copy. It is a complete solution for our needs.""The initial setup was very easy.""It is a global major solution for quite a lot of people.""WAN Accelerator helps tremendously with replicating our data because we have a large chunk of data that gets replicated between our two facilities.""In terms of most valuable features, we are mostly using the Cloud Connect feature. It is flexible because you can use it on-prem and on cloud.""Very user-friendly and easily recoverable.""The data backup replication has been the most useful feature. Previously, we copied the data hub to an external hard drive but now we are able to store the backup on one of the depository service.""Its backup capabilities in general are great."

Cons
"It is for site-to-site replication. When something goes wrong on your site, you only get 15 minutes before it also goes wrong on your replicated site. There should be some way to be able to say that we want to restore it, but we want to restore it to the version from yesterday. It should support versioning. I would also like to see real-time scanning for advanced threat protection, more straightforward billing, and quicker turnaround on the tech support.""The pricing predictability and clarity around the final cost of the plan of this solution could be improved."

More Azure Site Recovery Cons →

"The solution could improve by having more user-friendly dashboards.""I would like to see better features for exporting to cloud-based repositories.""I would prefer it if the backup console did not require use of a specified program but rather that it could be opened from any website.""It needs to support more applications. In terms of supported applications, Oracle SQL and Office 365 are supported, but I am not sure if it supports Linux-based applications. That's why I'm looking for an alternative. I am currently testing Commvault. The advantage of Commvault is that a lot of applications are supported with it. I am not sure if CIFS is currently supported. It would be nice to have this feature in case it is not already supported""I would like to see more broad support for other applications such as databases, or other operating systems.""The ease of use could be improved, but I don't have a very deep amount of experience in Veeam, so it's difficult to say what could be improved.""Veeam Backup & Replication could improve by making it more user-friendly.""It's hard to answer because managing cloud storage in our version could be better, but now that they have improved it in the recent version, I cannot say it's a better point because I know it should be already fixed."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It should have more straightforward billing. The billing was what got funky. It was really cheap. We would pay based on the usage. We paid around $225 a month for site-to-site replication."
