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.

N-able Backup (formerly Solarwinds Backup)

Solarwinds Backup is ideal for individuals looking to keep a consistent backup of devices in their environment. We used it primarily for networking equipment. It is easy to set up, as it is one of the steps available when adding a new device to solarwinds. It is probably not an ideal product to use for long-term (1 month+) backups.

Pros

Actifio Enterprise

  • Reliable and easy to deploy backup solution with low administration overhead.
  • Fast backup solution with low impact on production systems as it backs them up.
  • Dedup and replication of backed up data between sites and with streamsnap very quick recovery on dr site.
  • Great customer support with quick response to changing demands.

N-able Backup (formerly Solarwinds Backup)

  • Backup Reporting: Email alerts, and a great, easy to read Dashboard with detailed error logs and an easy to search Solarwinds FAQ for a lot of them.
  • Restores: So far I have restored files, full VMs, and VMs to other hardware, and so far it has not only been flawless, but so flexible that I can't imagine going back to any other software.

Cons

Actifio Enterprise

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

N-able Backup (formerly Solarwinds Backup)

  • Restore complete settings: IP settings, the setting of CPU/Memory for VMs, etc. would decrease management during a restore.
  • Individual file backup: more granular settings for backup.
  • Change of device name after setup: at times, computer names change after restore so it would be great to rename the device name.
  • Option to recovery security key.

Alternatives Considered

Actifio Enterprise

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

N-able Backup (formerly Solarwinds Backup)

Works well. Easy to use. If you use Ncentral, it's already tied in and even easier to deploy. Cloud storage is more expensive than competitors. There is no easy option to offload your backups to AWS, etc. It can create a local speed vault to have local backups as well. data recovery works better than any other product I have used.

Return on Investment

Actifio Enterprise

  • 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.
Mark McCully | TrustRadius Reviewer

N-able Backup (formerly Solarwinds Backup)

  • There has been NO negative impact to out ROI, but it definitely helps our bottom line. Affordable pricing and solid support make Solarwinds Backup almost a no brainer. That interprets to a growing ROI.
  • The best thing to happen to our ROI is the growth brought in by very happy clients.
