NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP was well suited to begin our journey to cloud storage as a service. The ease and intuitiveness of the product to enable our administrators to design, configure, and deploy the storage in a hybrid cloud environment was instrumental to the success and the early adoption of the service.

Vembu BDR Suite

I've been working with nearly every backup
program for more than 25 years from small shops to corporations with thousands of users. Vembu BDR [Suite] is a great product for any
business, large or small. It is missing a couple of options that maybe
the most popular one has but it doesn't prevent protecting your business. When
budget is an issue it's by far the best option. Being able to provide it
to our clients is an added bonus since that makes it so much easier to manage
when everyone is using the same product. When it comes to technical
support, I haven't experienced support like Vembu Support in years. They
are quick to respond, happy to remotely connect if desired and seem to really
understand their product well. Many others I've worked with refuse to
help, and send responses that have nothing to do with my question or they simply provide a link to a
document and basically tell me to read and figure it out myself. Often that document does not relate to my issue. I've
always done my research before contacting support and that kind of response is one
of the biggest reasons we decided to look elsewhere and after many trials and deep testing, ultimately switched to
Vembu. Vembu has been rock solid, fast, and tech support has been top-notch.

The biggest place I would say that VembuBDR is
less appropriate is when you have the desire to backup your physical systems to
multiple internal storage devices and want a secondary backup as a safety net and don’t want to risk that the
backup itself is corrupt or infected and your only other option is a mirrored copy of that data. I know they are working hard on adding features
and I’m excited to know version 5 is releasing soon.

Pros

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

  • Migrate on-prem storage volumes to AWS
  • Provides Disaster Recovery in the cloud options
  • NetApp [Cloud Volumes ONTAP] has been very stable so far!
Mark McCully | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vembu BDR Suite

  • Bare metal system images. These are incredibly flexible, enabling you to do dissimilar hardware restores, local or online backups and restore to VHD
  • Full, differential and transaction log backups for SQL server, ensuring rapid backup and restore, with maximum storage efficiency.
  • Incremental backups for files, meaning only the changes which have been made to a file are backed up, dramatically reducing time to backup and increasing storage efficiency.

Cons

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

  • Additional cloud vendor support
  • Expanded capabilities
  • Lower pricing tiers for licensing
  • Free/included entry tier
Randy Carpenter | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vembu BDR Suite

  • Although its interface is simple, a web-only interface for a backup solution isn't recommended as the main interface.
  • Using PostgreSQL as the configuration DB Source is OK. But, the lack of options for the Database isn't OK. Especially on a Windows Environment, admins prefer using a centralized MS SQL Instance, and this is not possible with Vembu.
  • More work needed on SharePoint, Active Directory, and Exchange Restores. All three are critical workloads in almost any infrastructure.
  • Reporting can be greatly improved.

I think the product will remain useful for us and as the company keeps improving features it will continue to be relevant and useful.We don't like switching technology much and BDR solutions shouldn't be something that a company replaces every few years., that's why most likely we will keep using it.

Vembu is a great solution, but it still requires some fine-tuning. The user interface for Managed Service Providers could be more streamlined. Support logs need to provide clearer information about an issue whenever there's a failure. Backup agents should have the ability to automatically update when there's a new version and support should be on-shore during US business hours.

I have used NetApp solutions at various companies in the data center over the past 10+ years. NetApp always provides exceptional customer support with excellent support during setup/configuration and implementation. No professional services or consulting needed to get up and running quickly. Ongoing support and maintenance is also excellent--not that we need to use it very often due to the excellent reliability of NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP.

It often takes a very long time to get an issue fixed. the support folks seem committed to getting it fixed but they often seem to be trying different things and hoping something works. I did not get the sense that they had a clear idea what was wrong.

It wasn't difficult at all, it fact, it was mostly simple, implementation doesn't require much skills and knowledge, but the configuration part does require some skills to create the jobs and configure certain settings, overall, its an easy implementation, especially for experienced IT People

Alternatives Considered

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

Cost was a huge factor and ease of integration and deployment led us to ultimately choose NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP for our tertiary backup design. For our lightweight applications, we chose NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP because we were able to kill two birds with one product and have the deployment efforts and time kept at a minimum which again helps saves cost.

Vembu BDR Suite

I tested Vembu against Veeam and for the price, Vembu was the better option. I also had a great support experience as I had to contact Vembu twice after mistakes I made. While using Veeam the software was not as intuitive and support responses were not as swift and accurate.

Return on Investment

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

  • Positive Benefit: Measurable customer satisfaction increase by 50% attributed to visibility
  • Positive Benefit: Go-to-market time saving--reduced time by two weeks
  • Neutral Impact: Integration with third-party monitoring was not made easier but was able to be completed
Gary Slebrch | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vembu BDR Suite

  • For organizations that use different tools for Backup and recovery, this could be the single tool for Storage and Backup Administrators to automate and work effectively.
  • Software cost is lesser thus the money can be invested for other tools/software procurement
  • I don't think there is any negative impact as of now
