We utilize the Supermicro Ultra product line as our main on-site backup device. A reseller recommended it to us under a managed service contract - but the hardware has been fantastic to work with. The device also has an IPMI interface which works similar to VMWare - so you can manage the device. Our setup has 40TB of storage running in a RAID 6 format. We have 10GB network cards on this device - so backups within the same building run tremendously fast. Branch offices are throttled by the bandwidth at each of those locations. We have been utilizing these Supermicro devices for three years now - deployed just before COVID. Still happy with their performance and functionality.
  • Hardware reliability has been fantastic. In three years of usage 99.9% uptime - we've had no failures of any kind *knock on wood*.
  • No loss of speed in the device even when having 6 different backup jobs running to it simultaneously.
  • Pricing wasn't as absurd as other large storage devices.
  • I honestly don't have any complaints! Haven't had any issues to condone reaching out to support - so I can't attest to that either.
We have quite a bit of data that needs to be backed up - so we opted for a larger device than most small businesses/companies would likely ever need. That said, we are happy with our decision to do so. The interface within the IPMI device is easy to navigate through and get things setup. Hardware reliability is fantastic as well - as we have had no issues at all. I believe they have some smaller/lower-end devices for sale as well - but I'm not familiar with them. We're very happy with their product.
  • Hardware Reliability
  • Initial purchase price
  • Easily deployed - IPMI is incredibly simple to get around.
  • It has saved me HUNDREDS of hours a year in re-running failed or missed backups with our previous system & software we utilized. It used to be a daily occurrence for me!
  • Only takes up 2U of rack space - which is great as we don't have endless rack space in the closet we utilize
The SuperMicro Ultra product line was brought to my attention from a reseller. I had never heard of them prior to the introduction. The reassurance I was given before we moved forward with the purchase is what made me feel a bit more sound with our decision. Unboxing and putting together took all of 10 minutes - getting it racked and booted maybe another 15 minutes. The device was fully online and operational (to be used as a backup location) in about an hour in total. Very clean design - fans are fairly quiet as well. The reliability we've had for the past three years has been fantastic. We're glad we selected this device as our primary backup location for our district.
