Best for organizations with multiple servers and are super-careful about their data. The Service suits both small and Large scale organizations as there is different plans available and they cater the needs in a specific way, as required. SFS Turbo Server backups are not easy but the CBR Does it with ease.

SQL Safe is appropriate and well-suited for any backup scenario. Having used SQL Safe, I probably wouldn't want to manage a set of servers in the future without it. If you only have a couple of SQL servers, it might not be worth the spend as there are well-maintained free options that are very functional (though they do require more technical knowledge). But I can't think of a scenario where SQL Safe wouldn't be appropriate.

Cons
Huawei Technologies
  • Support from Huawei Cloud Backup and Recovery (CBR) team is not good. They take so much time in addressing the query and to solve the problem which we have encountered due to some technical error or glitches.
  • The synchronization process is very slow and we need a good internet connection as files get paused and we need to start the action manually which become difficult task sometime.
  • The price for storage is very expensive when we need some extra storage as compared to other cloud service providers.

  • When you're adding a new SQL server, sometimes the install from the management server to the SQL server will fail. I'm guessing this happens because of some version difference in Windows components or similar. Not a huge deal because you can just copy the agent to the SQL server and install it there, but considering how easy everything else is, I would expect this to be a little more fluid.
  • I ran into a situation where part of our business decided to move their servers to a third-party data center. When they took away a SQL server that I was managing with SQL Safe, anything having to do with that policy took forever. Click. Wait 10 minutes. Window reacts. I'm guessing this is because the Management Console is trying super hard to contact the server in question, but I wish it handled losing a server better than it does.

Cloud Backup and Recovery by Huawei is more cost effective when I compare it with its Amazon Counterpart, it has more features and the recovery time is way above what the AWS Backup offers. The policies available for data backup is also more flexible with Huawei, which makes making custom policies easier

  • SQL Safe allows me to spend less time managing my DR plan and still maintain confidence that my backups and restores are solid. Saving my time means saving money.
  • SQL Safe does an amazing job at backup compression over and above SQL's native compression. SQL backups are probably our single largest consumer of network drive space. Any product that helps reduce my network footprint, saves money.
