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.

Tivoli Storage Manager

Tivoli does well running file-level backups, but Exchange is clunky and restores are really hard. With no SharePoint agent, if you use SharePoint you will need another product like AvePoint DocAve. The web-based GUI console is MUCH improved over earlier versions, but you will still need to be a command-line guru to make Tivoli do everything, and local (node) config files still rule. This product was originally ported from Unix and retains may of its 'nix roots.

Pros

HYCU Backup & Recovery for Nutanix

Diego Gamez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tivoli Storage Manager

  • The concept of "forever incremental" is very appealing to my understanding of how backups should happen.
  • The backups are tuned for fast restores and they sure are fast.
  • The media management is very good.

Cons

HYCU Backup & Recovery for Nutanix

  • The rollout of the file level backup is still not there.
  • The Restore from the Cloud function is not ideal and needs lots of work.
  • Backups being in native format would be nice for certain files.

Tivoli Storage Manager

  • I do not see anything at the moment that requires change or adjusting. TSM works great for what we need it to do.
  • Note worth mentioning: We never had the opportunity to explore the VM backup functionality, as we are currently using VMware snapshots. This data protection solution came highly recommended to any business environment running VWware / virtualization.

Since we've used the HCYU solution, it has helped us achieve a policy of backups with compliance, and has been super effective.

The few times we've called for support we eventually got an answer, but it's IBM and a very big company and getting to a support agent is hard.

Alternatives Considered

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

Tivoli Storage Manager

Tivoli no longer has a SharePoint agent, others do. We are looking at a product that is agentless (runs in VMWare) to relieve our staff from installing and maintaining agents on 300 servers.
