Overall Satisfaction with Asigra

We are currently using Asigra as our main solution to provide system backups and restores. This server side application is extremely important to our environment due to handling all of our virtual machines and physical server backups. It's a reliable and efficient tool for this purpose.
  • Cloud backup - fast and reliable data backups
  • Data recovery platform - easy to operate when data needs to be restored.
  • Operability - the system is easy to use and effective even over slow or higher latency connections.
  • The interface is outdated and could be more intuitive. Work is needed to make it easier to set up when loading and setting up operations.
  • Event logs need some work. The errors in the log sometimes are not very descriptive. This can cause delays when trying to determine what the actual failure is.
  • Earlier versions did not have the ability to take snapshots but this was resolved on newer versions.
  • One of the positive impacts is that the solution allows us to free up IT resources to focus on other tasks.
  • Asigra has one of the best channel partner programs I have come across.
  • This product is one of the few backup solutions that I've worked with that doesn't require an agent installed on the target device, making it easier to deploy to new devices.
Asigra matches up very well against other products. Features are very similar and pricing is close as well. This product seemed to be a better fit for our institution.
Overall support can be a little bit better. Application logs sometimes are hard to read based on the description on the error generated. This could be enhanced for the future.
