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.

AppAssure works well for quick access to point in time backups of Windows machines without having to do a complete restore. The virtual standby function is useful as a disaster recovery or high availability solution. Recent upgrades to the product and rebranding to Rapid Recovery look promising. If your Linux machines are mission [critical] make sure your administrators test restores so they can perform them in a timely manner should the need arise.

Quest
  • Continuous backup with deduplication and compression
  • The P to V function of the software is create. To be able to back up physical machines and create a hot spare on a virtual environment was a great selling point.
  • Can back up physical and virtual (ESX or Hyper-V).

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.

Quest
  • Support for newer operating systems (Windows, Linux, VMware) is slow to be added. Usually takes 3-6 months from the new version being released for it to be supported.
  • There is no way to automate the testing of the virtual standby which a lot of comparable products are able to do.
  • The software has a backup type called "base image" which is essentially taking a full backup after an unexpected shutdown of the server. If your servers crash and they are very large, this may impact your storage requirements significantly. They do now have synthetic full backups which alleviate this issue a bit but they are not perfect either.

In the very few instances we've needed support they have been quick, friendly, knowledgeable, and dedicated to servicing our needs. That has only improved since AppAssure was bought out by Quest.

Our initial installation really was not optimum. With the help from Dell Profession Services we were able to get our implementation sized correctly and better understand how to get better deduplication results

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

I've been using Rapid Recovery for the last 6 years and before that we had used Backup Exec, but it was a different implementation as we were still running backups to LTO3 tapes using the full/incremental backup schemes. So Rapid Recovery (AppAssure at the time) was a big change for us, backing up to disk instead with base images and changes. I would assume Backup Exec can do this as well, but haven't used it since switching. NovaBACKUP was a lower cost solution that seemed geared towards smaller and simpler configurations

  • AppAssure paid for itself in the first year of usage. A user deleted a major file in our SharePoint sub-site, we used the DocRetriever for SharePoint Console and were able to go back to a particular incremental date and retrieved that file.
  • One of our file shares crashed and we were able to put the physical server on a virtual standby which saved us hours of imaging and restoring of data. This allowed employees to efficiently continue their daily work without much downtime.
  • The offsite replication alone has put an ease on the company in case of any disaster. When Hurricane Sandy hit, we didn't have a solution in place which put us on pins and needles to say the least. But with AppAssure we will be able to have some comfort that all of our mission critical data is being offloaded onto our other sites.
