    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.

    Panzura CloudFS

    Panzura works well for companies that have a high amount of data with cross site collaboration being done. The caching ensures you don't need huge investments of storage at each site and the cloud storage ensures high availability over what can be done locally. Also helps eliminate duplicate data across sites and/or small variations in the same data.

    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.

    Panzura CloudFS

    • Real time file locking

    Cons

    Actifio Enterprise

    • Price could be lower
    • Learning curve is a bit steep
    • Admin Console could be improved
    Mark McCully | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Panzura CloudFS

    • I would like to see more connectors. Tie in to traditional block storage or NAS. Additional cloud connectors to products like Hitachi Content Platform.
    • I would like to see a collaborative product created between Panzura and Riverbed. I envision an almost perfect small footprint ROBO solution where Riverbed provides the compute+WAN optimization and Panzura provides the storage/risiliancy components. Combine the boxes into a single 4U solution and you have a near perfect product for remote offices.

    Hands down support is the best part of Panzura. Their techs are always helpful, always knowledgeable, and consistently solve complex problems quickly. You can definitely tell they hire their support folks from the top tier of other companies and they go above and beyond what I have come to expect in terms of support compared to other companies.

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

    Panzura CloudFS

    There are several other devices but Panzura is best of class.
