HYCU Backup & Recovery for Nutanix

The SQL database structure and application-consistent snapshots to local storage and recovery are very well done. The interface is nicely made and it is an intuitive design that needs very little training to use. The Restore from the Cloud function is cumbersome and slow, that could be improved by downloading and finding parts needed, instead of the entire backup media.

I think that larger environments with a higher percentage of physical systems that require backup along side the virutalization environment sticking with a single backup/archive solution such as Spectrum Protect with Spectrum Protect for VE is still the most efficient use of administrators' time and energy.For small shops that are looking for ease of use - this is a perfect fit.

HYCU Backup & Recovery for Nutanix

I have used several backup programs, I selected 2 just to be brief. The best thing I see with HYCU over Veeam is that it is much more difficult for an attacker if inside the network to gain access to the backups and objects saved in the backup storage. The best part about HYCU over Bacula is that it is much easier to use and more stable. The interface alone will save you from time and energy using other products
