Actifio

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.

IBM

The outstanding storage capacity, organized security measures, and appropriate business features of IBM Cloud Backup make it something I'd recommend at any time of day or night. Furthermore, the software is online and hence easily accessible from a distance. The application's stability and strength are further assurances that all authorized business users are in safe hands.

      Pricing and how easy it is to use. We use other IBM products in our office and it is nice to have everything on one network. The experience for users and managers is better, even new employees who can learn quickly. It also makes it more affordable for us.
