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.

Mozy

Mozy Pro is a great fit, especially for small businesses that don't want to pursue a very large number of licenses, and don't have many TB of data to backup. The price per user is reasonable, and well within the budget of smaller businesses needing workstation backup solutions. For larger enterprises, there are other products that provide a lot more storage and better performance. We found Code42's product to be better for larger data backup needs.

Pros

  • One solution / window to control all of your backup & recovery requirements.
  • Fantastic de-dupe / compression to ensure best value. Our average has been circa 30% of its original size.
  • A pricing model that makes common sense. You pay for the amount you backup and you pay a recovery sum based on historical usage.
  • The security encryption levels mean that we can support businesses of all types and in still confidence in them.

  • Simple administrative web interface - It's easy to provision users, look at data usage stats, disable users, and update policies to control what folders users are allowed to backup, and what options they can access
  • Easy client installation - Installing and updating clients was very simple. The client would notify the user when a new update was approved by the site admins, and they typically went very smoothly.
  • Good performance - Backups went fairly fast, and were generally invisible to the user, other than the icon updating on files to indicate whether the current version of a file was backed up or not.

Cons

  • Intuitive GUI - Cosmetic
  • Phone App based dashboard / management console - Nice to have
  • Lite version for SOHO / small smb customers
Matthew Harris profile photo
  • Somewhat expensive for storage received - We observed that Mozy didn't offer a great deal of storage per user by default, whereas unlimited storage was available from other vendors at a reasonable price
  • No data deduplication - It would be nice to see data deduplication, especially since the amount of storage available was somewhat limited.
  • Slightly dated feel - The Mozy Pro interface was a bit dated when we used it, at least compared to competing backup solutions

  • Asigra is a great entry way into the cloud.
  • Compliance is a tricky thing. Jumping backup software means having to deal with previous copies somehow. Asigra is built for the long haul.
  • Asigra is continuing to increase their feature stack. They have made huge steps in the VM backup in the last 3 years and continue to implement features there.
  • As far as cloud backup software goes, there are many that can do it, but none that do it as well as Asigra.

For the clients we have using this service, we fully plan to renew the subscription. However, that may change as our client's business grows and they have a need to add visualization and other server types to their environment

Reliability and Availability

Asigra8.8
Based on 5 answers
At the front of Asigra availability is the N+1 capabilities of the DS-System. Multiple nodes that load balance and are fault tolerant giving the DS-System a robust availability offering. The N+1 can survive as long as 50% +1 of the nodes are running. Data availability is strong via Asigra's replication module. Both bidirectional and unidirectional replication for the DS-System exist. Bidirectional replication requires the MSP to purchase double the licensing. That cost is going to be passed on to the customer. Many MSP's opt for the unidirectional, which requires a manual switch over on the DS-License server to change a replication vault to a production vault. With that being said, Asigra replication is very efficient and allows for multiple, in-region and out-region backup vaults. The DS-System works best on Linux utilizing PostgreSQL for the backend database. Ideally, this should be clustered. Clustering a PostgreSQL database is not as straight forward as doing it with Microsoft. That adds some administrative overhead and requires some PostgreSQL expertise end users and MSP's have to find.The Windows DS-Client, the piece doing the backup, can be gridded for a multi-node backup cluster. Unfortunately, the Linux DS-Client cannot be gridded.

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

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 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.

Mozy provides more enterprise features such as AD integration, but CrashPlan has better plans when backing up large amounts of data. Additionally when restoring data, CrashPlan displays file versions as a drill down on each file making it easy to find a specific version you are looking for. They offer similar security, performance, and restoration configurations. Mozy makes it easier to see stats on each individual backup

  • When my computer crashed in 2013, I had only been in business for 2 years. But if I had lost all those files, that would be have been tens of thousands of dollars worth of work down the drain. So it definitely saved me there.
  • Also saves time when transferring between devices, because I can turn it on and let it restore while I go do other things instead of having to put all my files on a hard drive and then transferring them over manually.
