Actifio Enterprise

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.

HYCU Backup & Recovery for Nutanix

The SQL database structure and application-consistent snapshots to local storage and recovery are very well done. The interface is nicely made and it is an intuitive design that needs very little training to use. The Restore from the Cloud function is cumbersome and slow, that could be improved by downloading and finding parts needed, instead of the entire backup media.

HYCU Backup & Recovery for Nutanix

  • The rollout of the file level backup is still not there.

Alternatives Considered

Actifio Enterprise

Actifio is quicker to deploy easier to manage and capacity plan with less components to keep patched.
Peter Dawe | TrustRadius Reviewer

HYCU Backup & Recovery for Nutanix

I have used several backup programs, I selected 2 just to be brief. The best thing I see with HYCU over Veeam is that it is much more difficult for an attacker if inside the network to gain access to the backups and objects saved in the backup storage. The best part about HYCU over Bacula is that it is much easier to use and more stable. The interface alone will save you from time and energy using other products
