AppAssure

AppAssure works well for quick access to point in time backups of Windows machines without having to do a complete restore. The virtual standby function is useful as a disaster recovery or high availability solution. Recent upgrades to the product and rebranding to Rapid Recovery look promising. If your Linux machines are mission [critical] make sure your administrators test restores so they can perform them in a timely manner should the need arise.

Pros

  • It's good when there are no issues with the backup. It works well with file level restores if you can get the systems backed up without any corruptions.

  • Easy to use.
  • Simple configuration.
  • Easy to customize using script.

Cons

  • We have many repository corruptions and have to blow our backups away. I would not recommend using this if you are keeping a long retention.
  • We upgraded the agent and it created a new base image. Duplicate base images are eating up into our repository space.
  • I would like to see the repositories go away and use the type that was introduced for replay.

  • Support line just send a link so I have to research by my own.
  • Requires you to buy a license for every agent add on.
  • VMWare compatibility.

Arcserve UDP provides our organization lots of benefits and it is much more than a simple backup and restore solution. We use it for cross platform DR, storage agnostic replications, DR solution instead of VMware SRM and more.

Implementation

Our initial installation really was not optimum. With the help from Dell Profession Services we were able to get our implementation sized correctly and better understand how to get better deduplication results

Alternatives Considered

We had Replay in our environment already and the price was right. We figured it might be good to stick with one vendor. Replay was a good product and saved us a couple times with the VM exports. Unfortunately, I can't say the same about AppAssure - anything but headache dealing with support daily.

It is easy to deploy and manage. Solid data recovery and good notification option. We need to backup to tape to retain 7 years thus D2D2T is a good option to have.

Return on Investment

  • It is taking too much of our time to manage this product to make sure backups are running.

  • Data recovery is very nice.
  • Licensing goes high if you add-on the other agents.
  • Overall ROI is fair.
