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.

It's a great way for any small to mid-sized business to get a disaster recovery plan in place that doesn't have large data requirements. When a small business has large data needs (10TB+), the cloud protection piece starts to become problematic from our experience. The cost is easier to justify for mid to large businesses when working with larger data sets.

Unitrends MSP

  • Would like them to allow you to mount a backup, and browse the backup files to restore, or use a script to selectively restore files.
  • Faster backup and restore times.
  • Allow you to set virtual machine settings when using instant recovery.
  • Provide better progress information when restoring a large job.

Unitrends MSP

We compared solutions from Datto, and Veeam and found that Unitrends MSP gave a lower barrier to entry from a cost standpoint. The features that were available out of the box and multi-platform support made the choice a no-brainer when we were looking for options to protect our environment.

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

Unitrends MSP

  • In the beginning it had a good ROI.
  • Now the cost is prohibitive and no one wants it so we have had to find an alternative.
