I'm not aware of the exact cost of Quest Rapid Recovery because I'm from the technical team, but in general, the solution is quite competitive cost-wise.

Its price is okay. It is reasonable in terms of the way it works.

Coming from someone who's survived an attack, I would say that the pricing is fair when you think about what could happen and the price of what would happen if your stuff wasn't backed up. I would say pricing is whatever you're willing to risk for your data and we're not really willing to take that risk and we're willing to invest in good backup software. That's pretty much how you defeat any virus or any ransomware attack.

Licensing fees are based on the amount of data that you want to store, which is related to how many customers you want to cover. I recommend that before purchasing a license, you identify how many clients will be protected. You then need to estimate the total amount of storage based on each client's size.

Part of the cost of this solution is cloud storage. Azure is quite expensive, but I think that would be the case on any platform, such as Google. I think they probably cost the same per terabyte because it is billed according to how much compute time you use on their platform. I don't think the licensing for the product is very expensive. That said, to be honest, I don't think you should put money down to how important it is to keep your data secure. There shouldn't be a cost involved in the decision because if you start thinking about costs, it might be to the detriment of your business. I think that you pay for what you get, and if you want to keep your data secure, you need to first think that money shouldn't be an object when it comes to the security of your data. It was very important that duplication, replication, and virtual standby were available without having to pay extra for these features. Deduplication is critical because it reduces the size of the repository and if you didn't have that, your repository would continue to grow and the cost outlay for storage would be more expensive. You would probably use double or triple the amount of storage that you would like to have if you didn't have deduplication and compression on the data.

It is a little expensive. However, I haven't compared it to other solutions. Being a nonprofit, it is always good to have nonprofit discounts on products.

The licensing costs are quite reasonable; they aren't the most expensive option. You do have to pay an extra amount every three years.

The licensing is on a yearly basis and it's perpetual. You can have the license forever if you want to. However, if you want to upgrade, you can't upgrade unless you have a support contract. The amount the solution costs is related to space. We have about 72 terabytes.

It's very expensive which is why I want to drop it. They charge us per core and we have a six-core server. It's expensive to pay for maintenance charges. I want to switch to something cheaper. There are additional costs to the standard licensing fees.

I'm a distributor. I sell this solution to clients. We typically deal with the on-premises version of the solution. The solution is a great backup for the retail environment. It's a simple installation as well. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

If cost isn't an issue, it's a very good solution. If you're looking at your overall, yearly costs you should look for something cheaper. I would rate it a seven out of ten. Not a ten because it's lacking features. It can only replicate from SQL to SQL, not Oracle to SQL or IBM, etc.

I have been doing research on multiple VM (windows) backup/replication software like Veeam, Appassure, Unitrend, and Zerto. They all have one issue: if you want fast recovery at a remote site during a disaster, you have to have a live backup or standby VMs  at the remote site.  The problem would be that the standby VMs would require storage resources. That means the person who bough the softwar...

So does that mean you want to have a Disaster Recovery solution where data is not on site your bunker site? but yet allows for a fast recovery in case your primary site is down? - What virtualization solution do you use? - What is the link between the 2 (?) sites? - What RPO and RTO are you aiming for? - How much data do you need to recover?
