I feel that Axcient x360Recover is well suited for any environment, both large and small. Weather you build your own device, BYOD or purchase one of theirs, it all works great. I even use it at home via the direct to cloud option. Well work the investment. I am unable to find a downside at this time.

Paragon Software
Paragon Hard Disk Manager is suitable for use by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The graphical user interface helps to make the software easy to use, even by those with limited computer/technical knowledge and skills. The software will likely meet most, if not all, of the backup requirements of SMEs.

Pros
Axcient
  • Setup and configuration is extremely easy.
  • The business continuity component for spinning up the desired recovery point as a virtual machine on the appliance in order to keep the business operational is rock solid.
  • Recovering the desired backup point back to the physical hardware or virtual environment and syncing the most recent changes to finalize the recovery is awesome.
  • The system documentation is concise and easy to use.
  • The support team is absolutely fantastic.

  • Disk wiping - quick and effective solution for simple wipe processes
  • Partitioning - the software allowed us to work more closely with the partitions in a GUI environment
  • Data Migrations - Paragon Hard Disk Manager made this process of data migration very easy and convenient

Cons
Axcient
  • The only thing missing is the ability to cancel a backup as they appear to just continue to try to run even after rebooting the BDR and endpoint until a failure finally occurs.
  • The only other ask would be to expand support to Linux operating systems.

We've been using Axcient over the years and have worked with their development team to suggest new features, something that you would not normally be able to do with other companies. They listen to what we have to say and understand that we are a business, just like them. It's great to know that someone will always be there for you when you need them.

Support Rating
Axcient
Issues with failing backups drag out for months at a time. Axcient hardware replacements are quick to be suggested by support but as the issues are most often with the software architecture this almost never helps. Support often uses their access to the appliance as a back door into customer environments without our consent and despite our repeated complaints, accessing our customers servers and executing disruptive diagnostics like chkdsk in the middle of production hours for that customer environment. More recently they've been blaming their frequent off-site transfer failures on our customer's firewalls (of all makes and models) and insisting that the only possible resolution is to increase the TCP session timeout dangerously high (multiple hours), putting every client environment at substantial disk of even accidental Denial of Service attacks. Talking to any two support individuals, even when escalated all the way to their development team, often yields entirely different and contradictory answers regardless of the problem.

I had the miss fortune to go back to this device. Alot has changed since the first time I had used it. Now instead a full deployable network appliance, you have to download a preconfigured virtual machine that will only run on an ESXi server. What about Hyper-V? I have many clients that are Hyper-V only. I setup a test lab to get this thing up and running and it has been a nightmare to say the least. Will be looking at other options.

  • Paragon Hard Disk Manager makes creating regular incremental backups straightforward. The ease of configuring the software to automatically perform backup jobs increases the likelihood that we will follow through with our backup strategy, thus protecting our data.
  • Any loss of important data would potentially be catastrophic to our business. Paragon Hard Disk Manager minimizes this risk.
  • The software's ease of use also means we can focus more on our core business activities (and spend less time and effort on data backups).
