Overall Satisfaction with Axcient

It was used by the entire organization. It addressed the problem of not having to use tapes and the ability to restore items with that level of granularity and not have to do it manually through Putty was great.
  • Can restore Outlook emails down to the actual email and not have to restore an entire DB.
  • No reason to take tapes home anymore.
  • It has an easy to follow GUI that will allow you to restore in minutes.
  • More storage growth options. We ran out of storage very quickly.
  • There were problems with the backups using too much bandwidth and killing the network. There should be a less invasive way to accomplish backups during the day.
  • Increased employee efficiency since we were able to pull items quickly and easily.
  • Good customer service since we had items readily available.
NetApp and Veem is what I have seen used in the past. Axcient has a more granular backup method and is easier to use.
I would continue using it but it is expensive for a small business and may have a hard case justifying it.
Some key questions to ask are: What are the storage and pricing options? Is there a different cost to back up different servers?
