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.

For us here in New Orleans hurricanes are of great concern. In the case of [a hurricane] relocating your family from one location to another can be extremely hectic. With inSync we are able to move the data from on system to another with little to no interruption to our workforce.Depending on your business case, it may be appropriate to keep your data close.

Pros

  • Asigra's Agentless Backup and Recovery solution protects many various platforms and services... servers, virtual machines, endpoint devices, DB's/Apps, Salesforce.com data, etc... no more multiple point solutions to manage. Agentless means less complication, less installation, configuration and management of individual servers. Asigra provides us with a Secure, Reliable, Scalable and easy to administer and manage solution.
  • We get Recovery and Restoration assurance with Asigra. features such as Autonomic Healing and Validation Restore ensures our data recovered is consistent and accurate, and we can recover our data successfully, every time.
  • Secure and Compliant solution. As a public company, we appreciate the Security and Encryption methods from Asigra. The solution encrypts information at the source using a FIPS 140-2 certified algorithm, ensuring our data is secure both, in-flight and at rest... great for SOX and HIPAA requirements.
  • Automation and efficiency... We can schedule and automate the backup process, thus reducing the need for manual intervention and freeing up time of our IT staff for other projects and activities. The Asigra process is very efficient
  • We can manage the solution and all its components from a single pane of glass and, with the hardward/software agnostic behavior of the solution, we can mix and match the way we protect, regardless of operating systems, virtual platforms, applications, storage arrays or cloud deployment models

  • Druva makes the backup process transparent to end users.
  • It backs up critical data on a definable schedule.
  • End users are protected without their having to remember to perform manual backups.

Cons

  • The Asigra GUI's have been described as quite antiquated. The most used interface (DS User) has been recently updated, it will be nice when the rest of the interfaces get a fresh look.
  • DS Noc is a nice single pane of glass view for the backup status of the estate but there still could be some improvements in the reporting.
  • DS Billing is not a product that I have ever really used due to not needing the complexity for billing customers and using more traditional accounting software.

  • Instead of netting for storage node, if druva can develop a storage Node with the way client backs up to master that would be great. A lot of financial companies due to security reasons don't do netting in local servers.
  • Mass deployment without AD integration.

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

We can get immediate support and response. Online chat is also available where technicians are responding immediately. They will carefully listen and understand our issues and then provide the recommendations and actions. Once the issue solved they will follow up to make sure the customer didn't have the issue again and the issue is resolved.

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.

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

CommVaultCommVault is an excellent product with a very strong feature set but it is not as cost effective to deploy for a service provider, when using in house for your own solution it is a great product but to outsource is less appealing. The pricing model used to be very complicated but I believe it is getting more simple now. VeeamVeeam is another very strong product for backup of virtual machines but it is not multi tenanted and does not offer the same level of protection as Asigra.

Druva is better suited than all other vendors in its space for the enterprise such as: CrashPlan, Mozy, EMC or Syncplicity. Druva has been our trusted solution and we recommend it to our customers as well.
