  • We have a safety net that we didn't have before.
  • Key players are now backed up through an automated system that was easy to silently install.
  • The resources used impacted our exchange server negatively and slowed email until it was disabled.

  • Again, for some time, we had negative impact when they changed the notification setup. We could not get notifications for a long time. They did not inform user about the changes.
  • They modified the cloud data access method and users were not aware of this. Previously users had visibility of which data was available at their Base vault.
  • We had a disaster in one of our Hyper-v environments because of hardware failure. We could restore complete servers without any trouble or assistance with Evault. It is very easy to restore the VM level. It also take much less time.

  • While EVault can become expensive if you have a lot of data to store, but you have to keep in mind that it does not cost you anything more to restore your data in the event of an emergency. Some systems give you a great upfront cost, until you actually need to retrieve your data.

  • For a small firm, it has outsourced an important element to support our business continuity.
  • Email archiving was something we couldn't keep up with an EVault type of solution. We have more control of our file storage size than email, so we felt we were paying too much to archive spam and solicitations than important business communication. We went to a Google solution which was extremely cost effective and with more features.

  • With the reliable backups, replication to our off site data center and replication of key, critical servers to the EVault cloud, we have been able to maintain a viable business presence in all working conditions and disasters.
  • The single area where we have had some issues that cause concern is the ability of the evault cloud restore team to fulfill it's contractual obligations to restore the machines replicated to the evault cloud in a manner that allows for connectivity to those machines in a timely manner. This issue has a definite affect on our ROI and our ability to be 'open for business' in a regional disaster.

  • Don't know as I'm a reseller but I've been able to restore/recover important files.
  • ROI was excellent on getting email data back from backup. It did take a lot of time but that was due to how the CIO wanted it put back in pieces since new mail was turned on before the restore happended.

  • I feel that it's had a positive impact on the library's security, in that it's not that hard to use, and I think the value for what we pay is worth it.

  • Saved us the money of having to buy a new tape backup system and the server that it would have run on.
  • It also helps that when an upgrade comes out we just install it - no worry of tapes not working or running out of room on a tape that night and having to fix it the next day.
  • These two alone saved us lots of money, man hours, and possible down time.

  • As the owner, my main responsibility is to manage the back end of the business, sales, marketing and anything else needed!! Anything that I can turn over to a RESPONSIBLE party to handle frees up my time to devote to all these other areas.

  • It has decreased the amount of time it took to maintain backups on a daily basis. When we were on tapes, it was a daily responsibility. The digital solution runs itself each day, so as long as it is working it frees up IT's time for other projects.
  • It reduces the cost associated with having to maintain a second location and sever equipment for DR. This is a huge cost for a small business and hard to maintain on a small staff.
  • DR tests are much simpler since IT does not spin-up the DR environment. In the case of an event, eVault does the heavy lifting.

  • Our DR plan is based on using EVault backups
  • No hard numbers, but the ability to restore individual files quickly has saved me quite a bit of time and users appreciate the quick turn-around on restore requests

  • We only have to support one backup platform - so reduced employee time and software/hardware costs.
  • Overall works well and we don't have to spend a lot of time on it because we have little change with servers.
  • Lack of new product support has held us back on some upgrades.

About Carbonite Server

Carbonite Server (also replacing the former EVault products acquired from Seagate in 2016) is a full backup and discovery solution. Designed to recover anything from a single file to an entire system with the click of a button, Carbonite Server users can protect virtually any type of file on both physical and virtual servers, NAS, SAN and external hard drives. The vendor’s value proposition is that their solution assures that users without an IT department and those that are the IT department can rest easy knowing their data is safe. According to the vendor, Carbonite Server is easy to configure and schedule automatic backups (full, incremental and differential) that require zero user interaction. Users can choose local, cloud or hybrid backup targets.
