IBM

The outstanding storage capacity, organized security measures, and appropriate business features of IBM Cloud Backup make it something I'd recommend at any time of day or night. Furthermore, the software is online and hence easily accessible from a distance. The application's stability and strength are further assurances that all authorized business users are in safe hands.

Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager is well suited for Windows domain environments where you need to make backups of Hyper-V virtual machines or bare metal servers. It is possible to backup SQL databases, works pretty well, but sometimes needs consistency checks on backups to properly continue to backup databases. Easy to restore anything to production or to another location.

      Pricing and how easy it is to use. We use other IBM products in our office and it is nice to have everything on one network. The experience for users and managers is better, even new employees who can learn quickly. It also makes it more affordable for us.
