Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Virtual snapshots that offer incremental backups.""The API is very good.""The most valuable feature is the ease of use.""The solution offers a very straightforward deployment. You click, click, click and it's done. There's not much configuration to do.""We used to use the solution with tapes a few years ago. We've switched to discs, and it has gotten much faster."

"The most useful feature is the one-click recovery.""A very high level security environment for secondary data.""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.""Quorum OnQ has taken the guesswork out of backup/recovery and disaster recovery.""I like this product because it is easy to use.""From a disaster-recovery point of view, one of the things I really like is that I can test the virtual copy of the physical server on a test network and compare the servers side-by-side, without interfering with the production network. So I can see and make sure that the latest copy of the server is the physical copy of the server, without interfering with production.""Quorum OnQ has a good ransomware protection feature, and customer service and support were very good.""The change in the way that Quorum processes data has made a tremendous improvement in backup and replication times. While the familiar interface remains, the underpinnings have been finely tuned and the speed is incredible. My large Exchange Server went from 5- to 6-hour backups down to 22 minutes."

Cons
"You end up needing to do a lot of troubleshooting to get things to work effectively.""The replication feature is not available.""Their first level of support can be improved. Often they are too junior to understand the issues we are having, and it takes too much time to get from them to the next level of support, which is what we actually need.""Not particularly user friendly.""There could be better integration with Spectrum Protect and Spectrum Protect Plus, it should be one solution."

More IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Cons →

"The user interface needs to be improved.""Quorum OnQ can be improved by providing support for other operating systems like Ubuntu.""It would be beneficial if file culling could be more granular.""One thing that could be done to improve it would be a single pane of glass for doing disaster recovery testing, where I could have remote consoles in one place... I still have to go to each location in a browser and then bring up the console. I'd like to see them integrate that into a single pane of glass so I don't have to go to each server.""Better integration with cloud-based solutions like Azure and Office 365 is needed.""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.""I would like to see iSCSI support added so that NAS storage servers could be protected. We heavily utilize NAS storage and the risk there is minimal backup options. Currently, we are backing up NAS to NAS which is costly and slow. Being able to integrate NAS server backup would be the last item on my Quorum bucket list.""Lacks compatibility in terms of supporting other OS."

    Top Answer: 
    The incremental backup forever for database is a good feature.
    Top Answer: 
    1. Database log backup is too difficult for tracking and reporting. It uses cron to schedule the backup job. Sometimes the duplicate cron job was created by SPP. 2. NFS mounted filesystem need to be… more »

    The primary use of this solution is for VMware integration.
    Top Answer: 
    Quorum OnQ has taken the guesswork out of backup/recovery and disaster recovery.
    Top Answer: 
    My advice is to take a look at both the on-premises and cloud offerings from Quorum. We have been using an on-premises solution but we will probably evaluate the cloud version come renewal time.
    Top Answer: 
    It would be beneficial if file culling could be more granular.
