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.

Solarwinds Storage Resource Monitor

Are you in the Cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP, other) -- you won't be able to use SRM. This does not give visibility into block and/or object storage.Do you have high-performance, multi-tiered storage solutions from vendors like HP, Dell, IBM, or others? Do you have a VMware environment hosted by your shared storage solution? Then this is the tool to link everything together for you.

Pros

Quest Rapid Recovery

  • Installation and setup is simple. You can be up and running in minutes.
  • Your backups can be replicated to the cloud or to another AppAssure server to give you additional protection.
  • The user interface is simple and easy to use and improvements in the UI and reporting are getting better with each update.

Cons

Quest Rapid Recovery

  • The GUI and response times are far too slow. It would be nice if this could be improved.
  • Currently you can set a blanket retention policy for all protected machines. It would be great if this could get more granular and can do protection groups of machines where you can custom set retention policy
  • Once again, policies where you can set backup times for groups rather than individual machines would be great.

Solarwinds Storage Resource Monitor

  • The list of devices covers the most popular, but adding more types of devices is always helpful
  • Device types make it difficult to connect some times (on the vendor side) but the product does a good job, configuration could be easier for setting up devices.

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

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.

Solarwinds Storage Resource Monitor

We have a full suite of SolarWinds products and did not evaluate other options for a full package. For selective monitoring we log into the devices, but this has made that much easier as we have a dashboard rather than logging into devices one at a time.

Return on Investment

Quest Rapid Recovery

  • It is taking too much of our time to manage this product to make sure backups are running.

Solarwinds Storage Resource Monitor

  • With SRM we have proactively monitored devices to stay ahead of data growth
  • SRM makes monitoring of internal asset condition much easier
  • SRM make monitoring of live statistics much easier.
