Asigra

If implemented as a Cloud Service provider (Public Cloud), In House Solution (Private Cloud) or a mixture of both (Hybrid Cloud):
  • The Agentless Architecture means there are less support burdens.
  • Encryption at Source gives the customer confidence their data is secure.
  • WAN Optimisation (Compression & Block Level Incremential Forever and De-deupe of Data), enables a large amount of Data to be protected offsite.
  • One step Backup to both Local and Offsite storage enables LAN speed restores with offsite peace of mind.
  • Asigra Replication from DS-System to DS-System enables another geographically separate copy of the data.

CloudBerry Backup

For any Managed Service Provider (MSP) that offers backups services to its clients, Cloudberry MBS is a winning solution. It is fast, powerful, flexible and priced to provide room for decent profit margins for the MSP. MSP's that handle clients so large that they need Appliance-based backups and recovery will need more sophisticated (read pricier) solutions, but for the vast majority of customers that have 1-10 servers, CloudberryLab MBS is an excellent solution.

Pros

  • True end to End Offering, There are very few operating systems or applications that Asigra doesn't support.
  • Deduplication & Compression: Asigra's deduplication and compression settings allows us to reduce our clients expendature on cloud backup
  • Channel Only: Asigra is only available via the channel and each partner is allocated a 'Partner Success Manager' Who ensures your partnership is successful .

  • A wide array of choices for Backend storage - We use Amazon, Google, Backblaze and Wasabi
  • Flexible Retention policies - We keep data/versions locally for one year, at Google for 90 days, and at Amazon for 30 days.
  • Extremely low price point allowing us to charge prices that are competitive with Mozy and provide fully managed backup services
  • Extremely powerful central management console allowing us to monitor, edit, and run backups and restores for all client devices from any computer or mobile device

Cons

  • Before Version 13 the GUI was seen as a barrier to its success. Since Feb 15 this has been improved.
  • Endpoint Devices - This is there but has not all the functionality seen in many bespoke products for mobile / tablets etc. From my understanding Asigra have 3 more version updates in the coming 12 months that will improve on this. For me it was a small price to pay for a product that does everything else so well.

The product is out dated and is missing needed features. The time between product releases is growing longer in a market that has shorter release times.

I love Cloudberry. I am using it at three different sites to backup their mission critical file servers and it works great. It is a very cost effective backup solution that is easy to setup and use and the support is also very good. I would recommend it to anyone that needs a good backup solution for their business.

Easy to use, great scalability, feature packed... Asigra is truly an end-to-end enterprise solution, not simply a point product. Asigra handles backup and restoration of client data across multiple OS platforms- Windows, Linux, Unix, IBM AS400, Mac X, etc... They include servers, desktops, laptops, mobile devices, virtual and physical machines. Some key features to note: Deduplication, Continuous Data Protection, Agentless Backup, Replication (New), Silent mode installation, Best of breed/start of art Security, Storage Discovery/Assessment tools, Autonomic healing... and more.Asigra simplifies Cloud backup, period. Do your clients want a full Public Cloud, Hybrid... what about Private built solution? Asigra handles all, with ease and, with over 26 years of ZERO security breaches.

The screens are very easy to understand and very detailed. I have not had any issues finding what I was looking for or understanding what options to use to create my backups. Cloudberry has a simple easy to use interface that is well designed and the documentation is excellent compared to some other backup software I have used in the past.

Reliability and Availability

Asigra8.8
Based on 5 answers
Over 6 consecutive years our Asigra Backend had 99.99% uptime and provided 7x24 data restore availability.
Software is robust in operations, provides N+1 node architecture to protect against failure of half of the nodes (majority of the nodes still up) and software based replication to protect against data loss across two geographically independent datacenter locations. Why not 10 points? Some major upgrades still require short downtime within a planned maintenance windows.

Support

Support is very triage based now, for the price it should be full service support and not a cold hand off for a support case.

Excellent support with very quick response and quick resolution of my issues. I am very happy with my experience with their support department and feel comfortable they can and will resolve any issues I have quickly and completely. I feel that they care about my experience with their product and take ownership of any problems.

Online Training

Asigra1.0
Based on 1 answer
Anything training past level 1 and level 2 is a waste of time. They do not offer training, just an exam and require you to read 2500 pages of their documentation as their training. They are selling you something which you already have. Training exams are far fetched and cover topics hidden within the documentation. A lot of their documentation does not match across itself. They don't even follow the standard versions Major.Minor.ServicePack.Hotfix. They use the MAJOR.MAJOR.MAJOR.Hotfix method, which doesn't match their documentation.They require you to take training in order to keep your engaged hybrid partnership. If you ask me personally, their training is a scam to make more money.

Implementation

Asigra1.2
Based on 3 answers
Quick to install, easy to create jobs, schedules and retention policies. No large cycles of setting up backup volumes or trash volumes. Retention job itself configures the BLM functionality so you don't need an expertise to handle the BLM module separately.

Easy and successful implementation and the results have been very good with no issues since the install and go live. I highly recommend Cloudberry Backup software to anyone needing an easy to install, setup and manage backup solution. Excellent product with great features and reliability at a very good price point.

Alternatives Considered

Asigra has more functionality. It has a very simple and smart licensing model. The Asigra company has great service on all levels, from sales to technical and end customer service. The software itself is very stable and functional. It has all our requirements as a cloud backup service provider for customers in all sectors, including the health sector.

I use Veeam, Nakivo and CloudBerry across the networks I manage. All three work well for their needs. Veeam is great for larger virtual environments. Nakivo is also good in those situations and because it's less expensive; it works well in smaller virtual environments. CloudBerry is great for workstations and file servers and the ransomware protection is great.

Return on Investment

  • Customer Service - The ability to switch a business back on in within 30secs of a key server going down is where the future is.
  • Productivity - Internal resource time required to managed the backup solutions across our portfolio has dropped by at least 50%.

  • Inexpensive and easy to use. Enough said.
