Asigra

I have been working with backup solutions for around 14 years now. Asigra is one solution that has a wide range of features and functionalities while retaining the simplicity of usage and making it a very simple product to learn and start using.What is also important is the post sales support wherein the product code is done so well that you rarely need to engage Asigra's support team for escalations and support calls. On top of it, Asigra technical support works very well to ensure you are taken care of well & quickly. This is one of the most important things that you look for while evaluating any product as you need to have the right people around you when you are in trouble.

It's a great data protection product and secondary storage target, and it integrates well with the cloud.

Pros

  • Provides capability of local backups while maintaining remote copies on cloud to ensure faster recoveries of recent data and remote protection of all data.
  • Helps reduce cost of long term retention by leveraging the BLM functionality.
  • It does not need specialized hardware for it to work. Customers and Service Providers can choose their own infrastructure and do not need to rely on any OS or storage based replication even for deploying replication of backups.
  • Supports wide range of environments including virtual environments with remarkable features like remote VDR with incremental restores.

  • Cohesity is great at finding files for day to day restore operations. It's like a "Google search tool".
  • Cohesity is great at cloning a VM into a test environment. The whole process only takes a couple min.
  • Cohesity is great at making it clear which servers are a which servers are not getting backed up.
  • Cohesity's Auto protect feature is great. Your servers get backed up as they are created.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Confirmation when doing restores wouldn't hurt at all. It would help prevent my own misclicks!
  • We are hoping for a future option of ISCSI attached drives.
  • A way to cancel restores in the case of restoring the wrong item or too many items.

Likelihood to Renew

Asigra8.5
Based on 14 answers
From a business prospective, I am a service provider so I would always renew.From a technical prospective, there has been enough written about it in earlier questions and this could go endless.Overall, Asigra is a good organization to work with. They are concerned about what the partner and the customer needs and are always a phone call away to help in any situation. Therefore, apart from technology, you work with people always available to support their claims.

Usability

Asigra8.0
Based on 6 answers
As I have described in various earlier questions, Asigra provides a simple GUI, easy to configure and manage backup jobs, simple recovery interface and you don't need learning cycles to understand the product and its functionalities.It is more of an on-the-fly easy to use product.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Asigra licensing model is more straight forward than eVault and has an easier user interface.Asigra is more robust and feature rich than Mozy or Carbonite.Asigra offers true multi-tenancy, where the Symantec products do not offer such features.Asigra's feature stack holds water against the other competitors out there. As far as cloud backup goes, it is the most mature cloud backup software on the market. As well as being mature, the security exemplified by the NIST FIPS 140-2 encryption certification is far ahead of its competitors.

We decided to go with Cohesity because it was an all in one solution. We did not want to buy Veeam and then buy the hardware and then buy different licenses and support structures.
