If you are in a highly virtualized infrastructure, Clumio is the only choice right now. It was built in the cloud, for the cloud, and handles on-premise environments very well. If your environment is lots of physical servers or lots of database servers, maybe start with a slower rollout of Clumio, but do not go with something else. Clumio is the answer to backup, now and in the future!

Spanning Backup for G Suite is great for businesses or schools who want peace of mind that important data in Google Drive are backed up and easy to restore. It should not be used to backup your servers/etc as the backup and restore process is not THAT quick. Not slow, but not the quickest.
Read full review Pros Offers a highly predictable cost model for all of our environments. Easy to manage. One set of policies for all over our VM servers. Read full review Set it and forget it. Easy set up and it runs daily behind the scenes. Restore holds record relationships. Restore can merge records easily. Read full review Cons Since Clumio is a new product, it is not as feature-rich as some of the incumbents, but it is still a superior product. Customized reporting capabilities are needed for this product. Read full review Administrative users can backup multiple accounts at one time, but can only restore one account at a time. Management console navigation opens additional tabs, but I believe they are working to improve that. It would be nice to be able to delete emails and files from user accounts from within Spanning instead of having to login to Google as the user. Google Forms meta-data is not able to be restored to other accounts. Read full review Usability
The web console is easy to use.

Clumio support thas been both responsive, definitive, and helpful. They have been great to deal with as we have worked our way from Proof of Concept, to production roll out. They are quick to answer emails, and also alert us when they see a potential issue. These new "proactive" vendor support models are great to experience

I would like a retention option on the data, but since this feature does not currently exist, I give it a 9. Everything has met our standards and needs and we are now freed up from the manual efforts it was taking for backing up

There was nothing like Clumio to evaluate. We did look at some of the incumbent on-premise solutions that have cloud-based offerings. They all require hardware infrastructures to accomplish their job, thereby locking you into having to manage and update hardware. Clumio displaces these systems by offering a true cloud-based backup with no need to manage hardware, or maintain hardware, or manage software upgrades. And new features are added all the time without having to upgrade!
