IBM Cloud Backup

Any time, all day, I would advocate the use of IBM Cloud Backup, as it has excellent storage space with structured security measures, and suitable business functionalities. Further, no big struggle as the app is online, hence, remotely accessible. The stability and the strength that the application has is another assurance that all information is in the safer hands, for all the authorized business users.

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

For a large data center with multiple servers, Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery does well. Deduplication works well. On the downside, the cost per megabyte compared to alternative backups is high. The user interface is complicated to use at first. Tech support needs to be called at times to learn functionality that changes between updates.

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

  • The setup of the device is very straightforward and simple. It's not confusing when configuring the backup device.
  • Adding assets to the system is very easy. The Unitrends agent that enables the backup of devices is simple to install. Once it is installed, you move on to creating a job for backing up the asset, which is also simple to setup.
  • Looking at the whether backup jobs are successful has a well laid out UI. You can filter by almost anything you want to find specific jobs or assets to check on the backups that were made.

Cons

IBM Cloud Backup

  • The set prices for the product is a problem.
  • Secondly, IBM Cloud Backup customer help should be more speedy.
  • IBM Cloud Backup is so automated, and in case of a power failure, accessing some of this data can be challenging.

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

  • When attempting to do a restore, it is a bit clunky on the process. While when it is completed it does work, but kind of confusing, especially on your first attempt.
  • We had to back up not only AD servers, mixed environment of stand-alone and VM's we also still had Netware servers that required a backup. It was a bit more tedious setting the Novell servers up for backup. A cleaner install for Netware would be nice, but not sure how big of an issue that will be since it is less used (Netware).
  • Unitrends and VMware work well with snapshots, but it needs to be emphasized that in some instances you need to REMOVE any existing snapshots of a server before you do different tasks, or it will not work at all.

We have grown very attached to the Unitrends appliances and their use for recovery and other file restoration needs as well as data archival, data replication to other appliance and data migration to other servers or long term storage requirements. The appliances work well and the support for them is very good as well.

I have never used such an easy product that is stable and scalable like Unitrends. I have been running backups for MANY years. On premise, tape, disk, cloud, you name it. Unitrends is very flexible, stable and has incredible reporting features. It's nice when management requests a report and it takes you 5 minutes to run it and dump it to PDF. How can you beat that?

They're incredible, attentive, thorough. They make sure my issue is resolved and follow up. I'm usually behind on giving them a reply or an update. They have always gone above and beyond for me, and I'll continue to do the same for them.

The Unitrends employees involved in the installation were very friendly and knowledgeable. A certain degree of hiccups can be expected during any installation but never shook my confidence because of the friendly and knowledgeable team that was assigned to my project.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Cloud Backup

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.

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

Symantec Backup Exec was the primary tool used for backups for years. We also used Veeam for some Office 365/Exchange backups. Unitrends once configured and set up works very well against the competition. Backup Exec interface was more user friendly. The search tool for exploring backups was much better than Unitrends as well. Unitrends is much faster if you need to restore an entire VM or large file folders. Also once you have Unitrends all set up, it is very low maintenance, it just works. If something fails 9/10 it will correct itself on the next backup that is scheduled to run

Once you exceed the capacity of the appliances, you have to forklift a new appliance. This is very expensive.

Return on Investment

IBM Cloud Backup

  • Data loss can be expensive, but IBM Cloud Backup has extra an encryption option, which helps us maintain the value of our information.
  • Besides, the amount of data that IBM Cloud Backup can store is almost limitless, making us deal with any form of content that benefits the company.
  • Finally, no data losses due to accidents, which is a great plus for a company.
David Vlad | TrustRadius Reviewer

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

  • It has saved some deleted file server data for our business department.
  • We have lost some reports for the business department due to an overlooked setting that make the backup reports look great, but the server was not being backed up in reality.
  • Less anxiety for the IT department, we have backup plan and that is worth a lot to us.
