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.

I like the idea of using this product for backups and cold storage. This allows for long retention times and a very low cost. The ability to quickly restore and the efficiency of all the products involved. I haven't come across scenarios where it isn't appropriate. I don't have a lot of experience so for me, it works well in my cases.

Pros
Asigra
  • 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.

Cons
Asigra
  • We would like to see Asigra come out with a Replication Model for quick Recovery of systems upon Disaster. We can have quicker recovery, DR, with Virtual Machines but we would like to have Physical Machine recovery in less than 2 hours. Replication can accomplish this...
  • We would like to see Geolocation and remote wipe for endpoint devices
  • We would like to see the solution provide easy "roll back" after a disaster.

Veeam Software
  • We have never managed to use Veeam for Azure or GCP. It works well with AWS.
  • A client needed a multi-cloud DR solution management but we had a security issue and could find a solution from Veeam Backup for AWS.
  • Usually, you need a dedicated resource to monitor when the number of workloads is high. That adds to the cost.

Asigra
  • 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.

We have been using Veeam Backup for AWS for our cloud hosted solutions for the last several years and will continue to do so. The ease of use and available support staff make the learning curve for use nearly flat in our case and having Veeam Backup for on-premise workloads makes the decision easy.

Usability
Asigra
It is a bit rough around the edges and the GUI feels like a wrap around of a CLI but it is simple to use. The problem comes in when there is an error code you are usually chasing down the error code in the specific vendor's forums rather than Asigra's

The UI and the integration is good with the product. so far
has not encountered any major challenges while using the UI. of course, this is
user perspective. Few users suggested some different view that it should be
change father should have some different options but overall the feedback about
UI is positive and no major issues encountered by using the UI or forsake of
this usability.

Reliability and Availability
Asigra
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.

Veeam Backup has never failed me, whenever we have needed to recover data it has worked flawlessly. It is highly available and I do not know of of a situation where our business has needed Veeam Backup fo AWS and has not been able to access or use it in some way.

We have not really noticed much difference and only notice it when doing work afterhours with our veeam being backed up. However, this is not the case as we do not do this often and hence we don't really have any real challenges for performance issues. Overall, we find that the performance is pretty good

Support Rating
Asigra
They respond quickly on your request. They ask for details at the time of logging the support request itself ensuring the first response is not for collecting the basic details only. They refund you the support request if they find it as a functionality issue. They follow up on you to ensure you are satisfied and happy with the response and resolution that they have provided.

One of the best and leading backup solution with central management for all Virtual Servers, Physical servers and Application level backup. Migrated from distributed backup solution running at each site to central VEEAM solution which has reduced overhead of backup administrator and improves the backup performance. Veeam team is very supportive in solution design, taken care of all our requirements and provided the cost effective solution.

Online Training
Asigra
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.

The training provided online was good. The training was restrictive to users but was content was good and informative. The information provided was relevent and flow was maintained well. The Question and answers were good and supported well. Need to have more material provided with the training and will support users to adopt train the trainer approach.

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.

We were pretty happy with our implementation as it was simple to deploy and we followed the technical guide online with out much technical assistance from vendor support. We had also tested and streamlined a process based on our own documentation for our own company which was simple to follow overall for deploying into AWS for future instances

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

I had looked at N2WS Backup & Recovery backup and disaster recovery solution for AWS environments. But while it provides similar backup and recovery capabilities as Veeam Backup for AWS, it lacks some of the advanced features such as instant VM recovery, file-level recovery, and integration with Veeam Backup & Replication.

We have found that Veeam Backup on AWS is very reliable as we have had it running for about a year and only have had it failed daily a few times and that was due to outages or servers that was part of our maintainance. We also like how the testing and verification of our backups is an excellent feature to confirm we can restore to the previous backup

Return on Investment
Asigra
  • Our entire Asigra environment can be easily monitored through one plane of glass thanks to their DS-Operator and Asigra Management Console.
  • It's quite simple to use and navigate.
  • Never has restoration fallen short.
  • Data from several generations can be saved and retrieved.
  • After a hardware failure, an edge server can be easily and quickly rebuilt.

  • The only thing is that you have to make sure you understand your AWS costs if your retention periods are not kept under control.
  • ROI is hard to prove until the moment you need to restore your workload.
  • Time-saving is something that comes to mind. Before Veeam, we used to spend/waste a lot of time verifying and testing our backup and restore. Veeam makes it easy with its SureBackup technology.
