Set it and forget it!

Spanning Backup for Salesforce is being used primarily by myself. I have given access to my team, but have not trained nor gone over its features and capabilities with the majority of the team. After having to do manual backups and using multiple tools to make sure we have a back up of our data and metadata, we switched to Spanning as it streamlined all backing up of SaaS data and metadata. The set it and forget it concept resolved issues of dedicating a resource to do the manual work.
  • Set it and forget it. Easy set up and it runs daily behind the scenes.
  • Restore holds record relationships.
  • Restore can merge records easily.
  • Not idiot-proof. This needs to be used by someone who is familiar with the data structure and the object mappings.
  • Easy to roll out.
  • Moves data to sandboxes as well.
Spanning Backup for Salesforce is best for a company with data that doesn't expire. There is no retention of the data that is backed up as it completes daily incremental backups. If you only want specific time periods like a rolling 90 days, you will not be able to set this, so it may not be appropriate for this.

Spanning solved a critical problem for our organization by allowing us to backup both records and metadata with an easy-to-use, in-app tool. We no longer automatically back up all of our Salesforce information, which is the product of dozens of hours of work, daily, and recovery of both large swaths of data and specific records is simple.
  • Easy to install and use.
  • Integrates well with Salesforce and can be accessed from within Salesforce.
  • Specific changes to records or metadata can easily be identified and restored.
  • Thus far, Spanning has completely fulfilled all of our backup needs, and we are completely satisfied.
  • While we haven't needed technical support yet, we were told that this is conducted via email rather than via phone.
We are a small organization, so Spanning's pricing was particularly attractive (it is priced on a per-user basis and has no minimum). We view a backup application like Spanning as absolutely critical as we have spent dozens of hours constructing a custom framework and populating data. Spanning provides us this comfort.

Spanning back up for SFDC

We currently use Spanning Backup for sales force as an interface tool. We use the backup scheduling tool regularly. It gives us confidence that we will not lose data every day and it is a big relief. I also like the backup and restore features, it's super easy to do and after a few clicks, it's completed.
  • Use the backup scheduling tool regularly to book up data
  • Using it to back up data on leads and opportunities.
  • Helps with controlling or limiting API consumptions
  • It is a bit expensive, we are a large company so it adds up quickly
  • Sometimes takes longer than I'd like with data backing up and restoration
  • Takes a while for me in terms of learning curve
We had previously had issues with server crashes and losing data. Now we have peace of mind, with Spanning Backup it has allowed me to have peace of mind that our data is backed up regularly every day. The UI is also pretty simple to use (once I learned it) and the restoration tool is very simple.

Spanning Backup for SFDC

Using it for Salesforce for back up and storage solution which is integrated directly with Salesforce which is great. We use it for backing up and recovering data loss. IT's great with the automated secure point backups. It also allows administrators to get data back fast and continue to do their job and get back to task.
  • For my team, our master accounts and opportunities were corrupted, back up was recovered from this data which was a huge lifesaver.
  • Using it for secure data logs.
  • We routinely use it for Backup scheduling which has also been great.
  • The price is a bit expensive, to be honest. We have many users so it adds up quickly.
  • Uses a technology that will be later owned by Dell.
The need for storage is real. Our company is a global company and we have many folks on Salesforce inputting data every day. We are saving a lot of money by using back up and schedule routinely rather than integration of an external storage space which can be extremely expensive and time-consuming to integrate.
