Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Cohesity

It is well suited for highly virtualized environments that backup over the network. When many people play a hand in backup and recovery it works well due to the simplicity of the interface. It will not work well for environments who are utilizing SAN based backup as Cohesity does not support Fiber Channel backup.

Pros

Asigra

  • Asigra's agentless architecture means it's much less labour intensive than agent-based alternatives.
  • Encrypted at Source gives the customer and service provider the confidence that their data is secure.
  • Continuous Development of the Asigra product suite by Asigra's dedicated engineers in Toronto means Asigra continues to protect data in the latest IT environments. Be that in the Office, Mobile Device, Cloud or Data Centre.

Cohesity

  • Cohesity is a well packaged all in one backup solution.
  • Being able to back up to another Cohesity cluster and/or to the cloud for redundancy is nice.
  • Being able to use storage not being used by backups for simple file shares is an added bonus.

Cons

Asigra

  • Image level VM backups need to quickly help doing file level restores.
  • Need support for larger environments like Sybase etc. as these databases are catching the market along with SAP.
  • Better deduplication on Oracle databases.

  • The physical device agent is a bit quirky but has come a long way and improvements are being made all the time

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.

The user interface is very intuitive and gives a good overview of the status of your backup jobs. Its a full html5 environment which can be used in very browser and is available on every device through the use of private connections to the office. When going to implement Cohesity it is as easy as putting it in the rack and configuring your network. The environment does the rest. Once configured new nodes can be added by configuring them with the correct network.We use it in a VMware vCenter environment with vCloud Director on top. Since the latest version vCloud Director is an official source for your backups. This means that resoring to vCloud Director is a posibility as well. This makes the multi-tenancy and self service capability for our users an easy to use function. It can be implemented as a plugin within the Cloud portal for users to leverage.The path to vCloud Director support took a while but now that we are there I can give it an 8.

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.

Online Training

Asigra

Asigra 1.0
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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Asigra

I would say that it has the same functionality as the three mentioned above in their respective fields (might have a bit less than some of them) but Asigra offers all of this and more so if you are looking for a single backup solution across the entire firm then Asigra is the much better choice

Cohesity

Cohesity is far easier to use and maintain. The user interface is HTML5 and not Java. If power is lost, a call to support is not required as the Cohesity device brings itself back online.

Return on Investment

Asigra

  • The product is rock solid, and monitoring options are eay.
  • Pricing can be expensive. New Pay-For-Recovery model is quite hard to predict cost-wise.

Cohesity

  • We are still in the implementation phase, however we have seen that we will be able to better back up our databases.
