Pros
"The solution is highly stable.""Overall IBM ProtectTIER is a great solution. It is easy to use."

More IBM ProtectTIER Pros →

"Quorum OnQ has a good ransomware protection feature, and customer service and support were very good.""Quorum OnQ has taken the guesswork out of backup/recovery and disaster recovery.""One of the most valuable features was the usability, since many of the features were very straightforward. The backup and restoration process was also very fast. Although we weren't able to fully test the scenarios, one of the features was that we could have it restored on a remote site. However, since we were on-prem, we weren't able to test the remote site restoration.""The most useful feature is the one-click recovery.""The solution offers good documentation."

Cons
"IBM ProtectTIER could improve by being more user-friendly."

More IBM ProtectTIER Cons →

"Quorum OnQ can be improved by providing support for other operating systems like Ubuntu.""The price of Quorum OnQ could be improved. We were exploring the product in terms of having a partnership with the distributor so that we could operate as a service, but for our own use, within the company, we couldn't justify the price unless the servers would become an option later on. The upfront cost of purchasing a license for the hardware is quite steep.""It would be beneficial if file culling could be more granular.""The user interface needs to be improved.""They need integration with other platforms."
