    I recommend this service for creating and growing a wide range of solutions, from the simplest to the most complicated ones. Even in a very competitive market for professional services, the central and distinctive techniques that gather the most reliable solutions and suppliers in one location may be enough to meet demand. In a single location, I can meet all of my technology needs and get access to superior assistance.

    Keepit is a fantastic data backup and restoration system. We recently had to restore ~60 accounts over a period of 2 months; it handled this task without issue. It was easy and effective, and no data was lost. It handled large (80GB+ mailboxes) that had been built up over 20+ years of work. It successfully reimported data from accounts into newly made versions of the accounts in our hybrid environment, meaning we did not have to restore the old accounts but could make new accounts and import the contents of their inbox and OneDrive without issue.

    Pros

    IBM

    • Cloud storage allows you to save data and files in an off-site location that you access either through the public internet or a dedicated private network connection.
    • Cloud storage delivers a cost-effective, scalable alternative to storing files on on-premise hard drives or storage networks.
    • Cloud storage services provide elasticity, which means you can scale capacity as your data volumes increase or dial down capacity if necessary.
    • Business continuity of Storing data offsite supports business continuity in the event that a natural disaster or terrorist attack cuts access to your premises.

    Cons

    IBM

    • Unexpected errors are known to occur when downloading/uploading files.
    • Not easy to get started. In order to take full advantage of the platform and its features, additional training and reading documentation is needed.
    • The UI of the platform can get a bit confusing and it's easy to get lost.

    Keepit

    • Keepit is not providing any regular report of activity. In theory, no email means that everything is fine, but you have to trust it or check it through the interface.
    • Keepit backup schedule is fixed and cannot be customized based on the kind of users.

      Keepit just works. No hassle, no need to check it all the time, no need to check up on storage. If they don't raise the price (too much), I don't see any reason to switch.

      IBM

      I have been working in IT sector for more than 15 years. I have worked with various vendors. IBM's sales team, support team have been really helpful. After we start to use their product, their UX design team also contacted us to get feedback from us. They are really interested about our experience.

      Support helped us to set up SSO and MFA with our Azure AD Accounts. Once when the backup was failing, they could help us to investigate the reason and find a stale account that was preventing the backup. They are really concerned that the backup works and not only want to close the ticket like other support hotlines.

      Online Training

      IBM

      I just researching and applying the tools on their platforms to ensure a good learning path, based on my needs. Reading the documentation related with resources, tools. Is too big, but I am trying to know more about it every day. It is a good way to know more about their resources. A new way to attract new customers. At the end of the day, we are all involved in improvement and automation of our tasks and resources for customers and end-users.

      IBM

      IBM's professional service for migrating data and implementing new cloud environment was perfect. They started to help us before we begin to bring together all data such as how can it could be best to transfer all data without problems. During the migration they watched all the process closely to prevent any failure. Lastly, after the migration, they gave us trainings on implementation.

      Also, we have evaluated Veeam backup for Microsoft 365 but it's a hybrid solution which means we have to build up a server and prepare cloud storage. Finally, we prefer to use SaaS to be in line with the Cloud-first strategy.

      Return on Investment

      IBM

      • This allows us to recommend a platform to our clients that will quickly help them create new, efficient business processes with very little development.
      • This saves clients hours and days of manual analysis of images, allowing the system to do the work when attaching Object Storage to models.
      • There is a learning curve in utilizing the storage and the modeling, but once up and running, it works well during deployment.

      • We don't need a lot of time setting up backups or monitoring them. Very time-efficient.
      • The restoration of data is very fast, so in the case of data loss, employees get their data back very fast.
      • It minimizes the risk of losing important data.
