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.

Veeam Software

If you are looking for a product to back up your M365 suite, Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 is both reliable and easy to use. Anyone who is familiar with their other products should be able to pick this one up and get going with no problem. Once your organization is set up, it is also easy to customize your backups and exclude certain users/mailboxes/etc. Their knowledge base also goes into fine details of any limitations, expectations, and requirements, and I would recommend going through everything before making a decision to make sure it covers your needs. I have not had any hiccups since implementing it a year ago, and all restores have gone smoothly and quickly.

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.

Veeam Software

  • My CFO seemed to have lost a whole year of important emails. I simply restored them to his mailbox in a matter of minutes.
  • An employee left the company but an issue came up with a quote this person sent out. I could search his mailbox and got the quote as well as all communications from that customer.
  • It is nice to be able to search emails in various mailboxes without disturbing the user.
  • It is also nice to go back in time. Say they deleted those emails last month I can go back years if needed.

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

  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 isn't 'multi geo' aware - this means we have to manually select resources to back up depending on their geo-location.
  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 doesn't backup Private Channels users create in a Team - there are workarounds for this but it would be nice if this just worked.

    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.

    It fulfils all of the requirements my company has for a backup solution, and personally I find it the most suitable product I've ever used for backing up mailboxes, due to the ease of restoring items

    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

    Veeam Software

    Simple to deploy and manage, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is a popular choice among both users and IT administrators. When the time comes, the switch can be easily restored. This is not only an email archive system. Software services outside of Windows 365 that can be replicated by Veeam include Teams and SharePoint.

    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.

    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.

    Veeam Software

    Veeam Support is the best support in the business, this is for all their products. All interactions are with highly skilled support people who know their product and also the platform the product runs on. So when the issue is not really a Veeam issue but is more related to the Windows Server or SQL Server they will still provide solutions on how to mitigate the issue. This is a very refreshing approach...

    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.

    Implementation Rating

    Asigra

    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.

    Would have marked a 10 but the storage in AWS was very complicated. Would be nice to have more help/guidance connecting to external storage.

    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 love how I safely backup all my organization data, Office 365 documents from Microsoft Exchange online, SharePoint Online, it seems to work well with on-premises, cloud and hybrid deployments. I also like how easy to connect to 0365 and start running the backup effectively. The UI is great and user friendly. Phenomenal Support Team.

    • 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.

    Veeam Software

    • We retained a client who didn't want to rely on local backups for their tax retention
    • Our tax retention records are also backup to AWS, so there's that
    • We are certain that our clients are fully protected against ransomware or in case of mailbox removal by accident
