We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Scalability is very good.""One feature that works well for us is that the Cloud Manager is a completely agentless solution. There's a similar dashboard on both the versions for on-premises and the cloud, and with reference to the Cloud Manager, it's a little faster because there's nothing to be installed as such. Being agentless, it doesn't require any agent to be deployed on the targets where the backups are triggered.""NetApp Cloud Backup performance is good and they have beneficial technology."

"Its most valuable features are the collaboration, the file snapshots, and the data protection the solution provides."

More Panzura Pros →

"One area that can be improved is around how we define the different KPIs. In particular, the business KPIs. I have my own in-house application for the business KPIs, so for example, with our policies around retention, which is a period of seven years, I have to read these parameters from other applications and I need them to integrate well.""NetApp Cloud Backup could improve by being easier to use. Veeam solution is easier to use.""Integration and reporting could be improved."

"It should be easy for people not on the network to connect and access their files."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Our usage depends on the number of licenses we have. On the cloud, it's a pay-to-use kind of model which suits our needs well. Once we have the Cloud Manager installed, the licensing process is okay, regardless of whether we're running backups in the cloud or on-premises. Sometimes, we have to restrict the number of users as per the contractual agreement and in this case we simply cut down on the licensing."
  • "Cost could be lower."
  • "NetApp Cloud Backup has a subscription-based model and it is paid annually."
