N-able Backup

Solarwinds Backup is ideal for individuals looking to keep a consistent backup of devices in their environment. We used it primarily for networking equipment. It is easy to set up, as it is one of the steps available when adding a new device to solarwinds. It is probably not an ideal product to use for long-term (1 month+) backups.

Quest Rapid Recovery

AppAssure works well for quick access to point in time backups of Windows machines without having to do a complete restore. The virtual standby function is useful as a disaster recovery or high availability solution. Recent upgrades to the product and rebranding to Rapid Recovery look promising. If your Linux machines are mission [critical] make sure your administrators test restores so they can perform them in a timely manner should the need arise.

Pros

N-able Backup

  • Backup Reporting: Email alerts, and a great, easy to read Dashboard with detailed error logs and an easy to search Solarwinds FAQ for a lot of them.
  • Restores: So far I have restored files, full VMs, and VMs to other hardware, and so far it has not only been flawless, but so flexible that I can't imagine going back to any other software.

Quest Rapid Recovery

  • Continuous backup with deduplication and compression
  • The P to V function of the software is create. To be able to back up physical machines and create a hot spare on a virtual environment was a great selling point.
  • Can back up physical and virtual (ESX or Hyper-V).

Cons

N-able Backup

  • Restore complete settings: IP settings, the setting of CPU/Memory for VMs, etc. would decrease management during a restore.
  • Individual file backup: more granular settings for backup.
  • Change of device name after setup: at times, computer names change after restore so it would be great to rename the device name.
  • Option to recovery security key.

Quest Rapid Recovery

  • Base images seem to be created too often at the slightest trigger like an improper shutdown. Something I think should be able to be skipped.
  • Speed of mounting restore points is bad and often times out. There are some work arounds for this but it is annoying.

We have an Italian support partner, they are been very good b7y the first moment.
All the partners are followed with a lot of attention, even the little ones.
there is a site where you can learn everything, the single parts of the product are described perfectly.
Every it specialist should evaluate it.

In the very few instances we've needed support they have been quick, friendly, knowledgeable, and dedicated to servicing our needs. That has only improved since AppAssure was bought out by Quest.

Our initial installation really was not optimum. With the help from Dell Profession Services we were able to get our implementation sized correctly and better understand how to get better deduplication results

Alternatives Considered

N-able Backup

Works well. Easy to use. If you use Ncentral, it's already tied in and even easier to deploy. Cloud storage is more expensive than competitors. There is no easy option to offload your backups to AWS, etc. It can create a local speed vault to have local backups as well. data recovery works better than any other product I have used.

Quest Rapid Recovery

We had Replay in our environment already and the price was right. We figured it might be good to stick with one vendor. Replay was a good product and saved us a couple times with the VM exports. Unfortunately, I can't say the same about AppAssure - anything but headache dealing with support daily.

Return on Investment

N-able Backup

  • There has been NO negative impact to out ROI, but it definitely helps our bottom line. Affordable pricing and solid support make Solarwinds Backup almost a no brainer. That interprets to a growing ROI.
  • The best thing to happen to our ROI is the growth brought in by very happy clients.
Marc Shaffer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Quest Rapid Recovery

  • AppAssure paid for itself in the first year of usage. A user deleted a major file in our SharePoint sub-site, we used the DocRetriever for SharePoint Console and were able to go back to a particular incremental date and retrieved that file.
  • One of our file shares crashed and we were able to put the physical server on a virtual standby which saved us hours of imaging and restoring of data. This allowed employees to efficiently continue their daily work without much downtime.
  • The offsite replication alone has put an ease on the company in case of any disaster. When Hurricane Sandy hit, we didn't have a solution in place which put us on pins and needles to say the least. But with AppAssure we will be able to have some comfort that all of our mission critical data is being offloaded onto our other sites.
