Infrascale Platform

Well suited for a company that has an extensive virtual environment setup. Definitely a good choice for companies that require an in-depth disaster recovery system, especially when the infrastructure is hosted in house. This system is expensive on a monthly basis, so I would not recommend this to small businesses as there are less expensive alternatives out there.

Zerto on IBM Cloud

Zerto on IBM Cloud is very well suited for backup and replication of data including large volumes of data.The disaster recovery process is rather simple. I would say there is not a scenario where Zerto would be inappropriate.

Pros

Infrascale Platform

  • Backups. You can customize the schedule and methods and create real snapshots for your important data.
  • White Labeled Software. It has real, effective ransomware protection all managed under one place and one white-labeled piece of software that is easy to use for any MSP.
  • Price.

Zerto on IBM Cloud

  • Ease of setup and upgrade. Installation and configuration was a breeze and can get you protected in just minutes without having to set up additional hardware.
  • Consolidated billing of the IBM infrastructure and Zerto licensing. One bill to pay monthly.
  • Ease of support access. Contacting IBM Cloud support is quick and easy and they can quickly involve Zerto support if needed.

Cons

Infrascale Platform

  • The interface can use a serious update. It's understandable, but not modern.
  • I don't like the fact that it forced an upgrade to VMware. That's not something that can be done by every company very easily.
  • The restore process can be more intuitive.
Vin Campbell | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zerto on IBM Cloud

  • Enable the ability to use IBM Cloud Object Storage as a target for Zerto's long-term retention feature.
  • Easier access to the underlying VMware infrastructure would be nice. Right now we have to connect to IBM's VPN and use other tools to do some infrastructure management tasks.
  • More insight into the IBM-side VMware environment that we replicate to (i.e. ability to see available IPs, etc). Most of that is managed by IBM.

It is one of the best cloud back up data protection software and software platforms on the entire market for MSPs. There are not many other solutions that offer this level of customization and execution in the data protection and disaster recovery arena better than Infrascale. I highly recommend it for any MSP.

Alternatives Considered

Infrascale Platform

I'll state up front that our VAR pushed us to Infrascale as they fully manage this particular choice/vendor for us. I manage the system itself, so I did have final approval. Between Axcient and Infrascale—they do exactly the same thing. I can say this about Axcient, their tech support was excellent. I haven't had cause to contact Infrascale support just yet, so no comment. Regarding Code42, this is one of those "less expensive" options I mentioned earlier. This is a super stable platform that provides straight backup (File/Folder), but not for virtual environments.

Zerto on IBM Cloud

Before we were using native backup solutions. We elected to bring in Zerto on IBM Cloud so that our team could have the ability to take small increments of data over time so that the final cutover would be quick and efficient.

Return on Investment

Infrascale Platform

  • Peace of mind: our entire virtual environment is backed up both onsite and offsite
  • As stated, it is pricey. Since we haven't needed to do anything more than basic file restores, ROI is hard to measure. A full restore of a virtual server immediately would be priceless. So, on that note, ROI is good.
Vin Campbell | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zerto on IBM Cloud

  • Overall, it's a very effective solution both from a cost and operational standpoint. We now do DR tests once a quarter rather than once every 6 months.
