    Actifio Enterprise is a great tool to use for data protection and disaster recovery at the enterprise level. It can create one master copy of your data and then replicate that data out via snapshots to local or cloud-based targets. I don't think this product would be a good fit to small to medium sized companies because it is on the expensive side.

    Asigra

    If implemented as a Cloud Service provider (Public Cloud), In House Solution (Private Cloud) or a mixture of both (Hybrid Cloud):
    • The Agentless Architecture means there are less support burdens.
    • Encryption at Source gives the customer confidence their data is secure.
    • WAN Optimisation (Compression & Block Level Incremential Forever and De-deupe of Data), enables a large amount of Data to be protected offsite.
    • One step Backup to both Local and Offsite storage enables LAN speed restores with offsite peace of mind.
    • Asigra Replication from DS-System to DS-System enables another geographically separate copy of the data.

    Asigra

    • Provides capability of local backups while maintaining remote copies on cloud to ensure faster recoveries of recent data and remote protection of all data.
    • Helps reduce cost of long term retention by leveraging the BLM functionality.
    • It does not need specialized hardware for it to work. Customers and Service Providers can choose their own infrastructure and do not need to rely on any OS or storage based replication even for deploying replication of backups.
    • Supports wide range of environments including virtual environments with remarkable features like remote VDR with incremental restores.

    Cons

    Actifio

    • Price could be lower
    • Learning curve is a bit steep
    • Admin Console could be improved

    Asigra

    • We would like to see Asigra come out with a Replication Model for quick Recovery of systems upon Disaster. We can have quicker recovery, DR, with Virtual Machines but we would like to have Physical Machine recovery in less than 2 hours. Replication can accomplish this...
    • We would like to see Geolocation and remote wipe for endpoint devices
    • We would like to see the solution provide easy "roll back" after a disaster.

        Asigra

        • Asigra is a great entry way into the cloud.
        • Compliance is a tricky thing. Jumping backup software means having to deal with previous copies somehow. Asigra is built for the long haul.
        • Asigra is continuing to increase their feature stack. They have made huge steps in the VM backup in the last 3 years and continue to implement features there.
        • As far as cloud backup software goes, there are many that can do it, but none that do it as well as Asigra.

        Asigra

        It is a bit rough around the edges and the GUI feels like a wrap around of a CLI but it is simple to use. The problem comes in when there is an error code you are usually chasing down the error code in the specific vendor's forums rather than Asigra's

        Asigra

        Over 6 consecutive years our Asigra Backend had 99.99% uptime and provided 7x24 data restore availability.
        Software is robust in operations, provides N+1 node architecture to protect against failure of half of the nodes (majority of the nodes still up) and software based replication to protect against data loss across two geographically independent datacenter locations. Why not 10 points? Some major upgrades still require short downtime within a planned maintenance windows.

        They respond quickly on your request. They ask for details at the time of logging the support request itself ensuring the first response is not for collecting the basic details only. They refund you the support request if they find it as a functionality issue. They follow up on you to ensure you are satisfied and happy with the response and resolution that they have provided.

        Asigra

        Anything training past level 1 and level 2 is a waste of time. They do not offer training, just an exam and require you to read 2500 pages of their documentation as their training. They are selling you something which you already have. Training exams are far fetched and cover topics hidden within the documentation. A lot of their documentation does not match across itself. They don't even follow the standard versions Major.Minor.ServicePack.Hotfix. They use the MAJOR.MAJOR.MAJOR.Hotfix method, which doesn't match their documentation. They require you to take training in order to keep your engaged hybrid partnership. If you ask me personally, their training is a scam to make more money.

        Asigra

        Quick to install, easy to create jobs, schedules and retention policies. No large cycles of setting up backup volumes or trash volumes. Retention job itself configures the BLM functionality so you don't need an expertise to handle the BLM module separately.

        Alternatives Considered

        Actifio

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

        Asigra

        I would say that it has the same functionality as the three mentioned above in their respective fields (might have a bit less than some of them) but Asigra offers all of this and more so if you are looking for a single backup solution across the entire firm then Asigra is the much better choice

        Return on Investment

        Actifio

        • Actifio has improved our Disaster Recovery approach by making it easier to get data into the cloud
        • Actifio has allowed our DBA's to manage their own backups and restores
        • Actifio has allowed us to save a lot of disk space by using clones\snapshots to replicate data from production to lower environments.

        Asigra

        • One of the positive impacts is that the solution allows us to free up IT resources to focus on other tasks.
        • Asigra has one of the best channel partner programs I have come across.
        • This product is one of the few backup solutions that I've worked with that doesn't require an agent installed on the target device, making it easier to deploy to new devices.
