Being able to back up critical data in real time gives us a better edge in service delivery. Ahsay has sufficiently delivered in terms of secure storage for files and data. Ahsay version 9.1.4.0 is scheduled to be released soon (just received the notification earlier) and they claim it will have higher storage usage so the future with Ahsay is promising. Ahsay has incredible encryption source retention policies and will be suitable for all your confidential files.

Iperius Backup is a very simple and cheap but absolutely effective solution for small infrastructures. You can use it both on Windows clients and servers, it can integrate with ESXi, MySQL, MSSQL, etc. I think the best way to use it is with their cloud space (Iperius Cloud Storage) that allows you to take care effortlessly of your small customers' data. When it comes to more complex infrastructures, I prefer relying on something different (Nakivo Backup and Replication, Promox Backup Server).

Cons
Ahsay Systems Corporation Limited
  • Whenever newer versions are being released, very insignificant features are added, we adapted to lowering our expectations.

Enter s.r.l.
  • Lack of clear documentation
  • Rsync not supported
  • Apparently NFS shares are supported but it's not clear how to use them
  • Iperius Console should be improved (it's almost a read-only dashboard and you need too many clicks to get where you want to go)

The company used several free solutions (e.g. Cobian Backup et al.) but they were outdated and there was no standardization, nor a simple way to monitor all the backup jobs. Iperius had all the key features needed for the task and the project is very much alive (regular new releases).
