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.

Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager is well suited for Windows domain environments where you need to make backups of Hyper-V virtual machines or bare metal servers. It is possible to backup SQL databases, works pretty well, but sometimes needs consistency checks on backups to properly continue to backup databases. Easy to restore anything to production or to another location.
