Skyvia Backup is being used by our admin department for backup retention. Due to legal obligations, we have to store Salesforce backups of our clients for 5 years, so that is why Skyvia Backup solution is the most cost-efficient for us.
  • To us, the main strength of Skyvia Backup is its clean user-interface and straightforward setup process. It took us very little time to get our heads around the setup, and we could get back to other tasks.
  • We also appreciate the feature of searching for a particular record or specific dataset - it is very helpful when one of our clients requests a partial restoration.
  • Sometimes Salesforce backup creation takes a lot of time, but Skyvia support explained that it's a Salesforce API limitation, so there's not much they can do to improve it.
Skyvia Backup is well suited for Salesforce backup creation, retention, and partial restoration.
Customer Support is quite fast to react, but they're not always available in our business hours, so I would lower the grade a little bit.

We use Skyvia Backup to backup our Salesforce orgs' records. It is very convenient to schedule automatic daily backups, and compare them to see what has been modified since the last backup date and restore it quickly.
  • Skyvia Backup is a web tool, that's why we don't need to install and maintain it. The interface is pretty intuitive and you can clearly see what's going on with your backups, compare backup versions, and restore specific records per request.
  • Skyvia Backup's room for improvement is that it still doesn't have support for Salesforce metadata, which would be very useful.
In my opinion, Skyvia Backup is well suited for automatic backing up and restoring Salesforce data. It's intuitive and easy to use which saves a lot of time and requires almost no learning curve to start using.
It is not quite convenient for me to wait for a chat to get response (because of my timezone), so the average reply time is about 12 hours in our case.

Skyvia Backup has been recommended to us by a Salesforce consultant as we were looking for a SFDC compatible solution to protect our Sales Team data from accidental deletion, data losses, or malefactors. It is used by our IT department.
  • I like the fact that Skyvia Backup is a standalone cloud solution we have access to 24\7, so in case of an emergency we can find and restore any record we need. Not to mention that searching through Skyvia Backup is also faster in general than searching through Salesforce itself.
  • We'd like some improvement on backup email notification - we receive emails if the backup creation has failed for some reason, but we don't receive them when it has been completed, or when we run out of disk space. It requires spending some additional time to log in and check whether the disk space is still enough. Would be great to save this time for other tasks.
I think Skyvia Backup is good for store & restore scenarios, but not that good for companies who need the latest backup versions only, as it doesn't overwrite old backups' files. You have to delete the unnecessary backup files manually which may seem a bit old school.
The "Documentation" section on Skyvia's website has answered pretty much all of our questions, so we don't have to turn to support very often. They have live chat, forum and email options.

As a small startup we try to cut out all possible costs spent on all kinds of tools. As all our sales and marketing activities are kept in HubSpot, we looked for an affordable and no frills backup solution. Skyvia seems to fit right in.
  • We appreciated the speed with which we could find and restore a particular record when it was accidentally deleted from HubSpot. I think the strengths of Skyvia Backup include its performance, simple user interface, and comprehensive documentation - you don't have to hire a top-notch consultant to help you with onboarding, like with some other tools on the market. You just check 1 page of documentation, and set everything up, no previous experience needed.
  • We were not able to interrupt the process of backup creation the moment it has been launched, so I guess this counts as a room for improvement. We had to wait till the backup was completed to delete it and relaunch with the correct data.
I would certainly recommend Skyvia Backup for small companies - it's as cost efficient as can be.
I love their Customer Care Team.
