LiveVault

Our company was originally with VaultLogix which was taken over by LiveVault. The transition to the new product was not as smooth as expected and presented us with issues especially with a restore. Restore and what files needed to be included in the backup policy were not communicated to us correctly and it was not until a customer's server failed that we found out we couldn't do a restore because we were missing files that were needed for a complete restore.
I don't believe it works very well for backups of virtual servers. Installation of the product is user-friendly.

StarWind VTL

We are only using the Veeam to StarWind VTL for Backblaze B2 functionality but for what it is intended for, it does the job well and we are very pleased with how time and money saving this solution is. Be prepared to spend a good amount of time going over the implementation documentation and reading the manual several times to get it right. We received top-notch support during the implementation and deployment process though, so that made the process a little easier.

Alternatives Considered

LiveVault

LiveVault is the only product we have used. The reason is that we chose it initially was the fact you can restore individual files. Also that the data is transferred offsite to a secure data center and data is backed up again, providing a second offsite copy.

Return on Investment

LiveVault

  • LiveVault has initially cost us more labor time than we anticipated for our IT staff.
  • Installing cloud backup has given us a piece of mind that our data and our customer's data is safe.

StarWind VTL

  • ROI was immediate as we got rid of expensive sneakernet backups with hard drives in a Pelican case
  • One-time cost of the product is very cost-effective
  • Support contracts are reasonable and we received excellent support throughout
  • We have much better peace-of-mind with our data being protected better
