Azure supports on-premises and cloud-based servers, and IBM supports only IBM Cloud-based servers. IBM Cloud Backup has costs 7x higher than Azure.

  • Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery, AWS Backup and Veeam Backup & Replication
Cost and SLA were important [in our] decision to prefer Azure Backup over others. The customization of existing policy with an archive of data was not available in competitors so we had preferred Azure Backup.

Azure Backup works on Azure, the most famous of the cloud systems that the whole world has switched to, which is now a very large part of the Microsoft ecosystem that we have been used to using for years. Therefore, it is less tiring to use the additional service of an infrastructure that we already use, even if it is a part of it, which can be easily integrated with existing systems, which is one of the most important issues we IT professionals pay attention to. For this reason, we wanted to swim in familiar waters instead of another brand.

  • Veeam Backup & Replication and Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery
I won't say Azure Backup stacks up against these mentioned backup solutions, they're just for different approaches/implementations.
Depending on your requirements, you may have a mix of Azure Backups for 'simpler' backups and another backup tool for the most complex applications or more granular backups.

  • Veeam Backup & Replication and Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery
The cost, not only in the short term, but in our long-term calculations.
Even in need of improvements, the pre-sale and post-sale support is very good.
The ease, like many Microsoft products about scheduling backups, the friendly interface, the fact that there is no need for an expensive resource dedicated to this backup and some other details, made us choose Azure Backup.

Azure Backup is based on the most secure and encrypted cloud storage facility available...Microsoft. They have been doing this a long time and have ironed out all the kinks, leaving only the good and dependable solution in place. Azure Backup is fast also, you do not have major delays and internet throttling happening from Microsoft, unlike nearly all other competitors. Have you ever tried downloading a backup you have in the cloud from any solution other than Microsoft Azure Backup? If you have, you know they throttle the speed drastically and it could take you more than an hour to restore just 100mb of data. Most server backups are over 50 GB, some of mine are over 1.5 TB. With those slow speeds it could take weeks to recover your system just because you are waiting on the download to finish. Those companies then offer to send you an external drive with your data on it...but for a major price tag! You should not have to pay extra to get your data back and should not have to wait more than an hour to get it all downloaded either. Microsoft does not throttle Azure Backup downloads and I can almost guarantee that they have faster speeds than you have, meaning that you will be able to download at your maximum internet speeds and recover your systems quickly!

  • Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery
When it comes to protecting VM's in Azure, Azure Backup is the way to go versus offerings from Commvault. If you only have the infrastructure in Azure, Azure Backup is the much more attractive solution because it's built into the product, offers ease of configuration, and ties in with the Azure infrastructure. If you only have an infrastructure in Azure, you do not have to pay additional costs for backup software.
