AppAssure

I belive AppAssure is now part of the Dell protection Suite. We have a very messy backup process where we run several backup products: one product for virtual, one for physical, Appassure for special backup needs. If you are looking at AppAssure, ask yourself if you're willing to use the entire backup suite from Dell. I feel one of the key things for backup is a single pane of glass. Can you manage a majority of your backup needs and processes from this one product

  • It's good when there are no issues with the backup. It works well with file level restores if you can get the systems backed up without any corruptions.

Cons

  • Single file restore has always been an issue but hopefully will be added soon.
  • Physical server backup restoring has always been tricky but achievable.

  • We have many repository corruptions and have to blow our backups away. I would not recommend using this if you are keeping a long retention.
  • We upgraded the agent and it created a new base image. Duplicate base images are eating up into our repository space.
  • I would like to see the repositories go away and use the type that was introduced for replay.

Our initial installation really was not optimum. With the help from Dell Profession Services we were able to get our implementation sized correctly and better understand how to get better deduplication results

Alternatives Considered

Actifio is quicker to deploy easier to manage and capacity plan with less components to keep patched.

We had Replay in our environment already and the price was right. We figured it might be good to stick with one vendor. Replay was a good product and saved us a couple times with the VM exports. Unfortunately, I can't say the same about AppAssure - anything but headache dealing with support daily.

  • It is taking too much of our time to manage this product to make sure backups are running.
