Overall Satisfaction with Clumio

Clumio is replacing our aging and outdated on-premise backup environment. We are using it to back up our whole virtualized environment at our data centers. It is addressing the problem of having a reliable backup source available for when recovery of data is needed. it allows us to not have to worry about having an infrastructure strictly for backup, and the flexibility of the cloud.
  • Offers a highly predictable cost model for all of our environments.
  • Easy to manage. One set of policies for all over our VM servers.
  • Since Clumio is a new product, it is not as feature-rich as some of the incumbents, but it is still a superior product.
  • Customized reporting capabilities are needed for this product.
  • We are able to get rid of an aging backup infrastructure and free up expensive rack space.
There was nothing like Clumio to evaluate. We did look at some of the incumbent on-premise solutions that have cloud-based offerings. They all require hardware infrastructures to accomplish their job, thereby locking you into having to manage and update hardware. Clumio displaces these systems by offering a true cloud-based backup with no need to manage hardware, or maintain hardware, or manage software upgrades. And new features are added all the time without having to upgrade!
Clumio support thas been both responsive, definitive, and helpful. They have been great to deal with as we have worked our way from Proof of Concept, to production roll out. They are quick to answer emails, and also alert us when they see a potential issue. These new "proactive" vendor support models are great to experience.

Yes

Would you buy Clumio again?

Yes

If you are in a highly virtualized infrastructure, Clumio is the only choice right now. It was built in the cloud, for the cloud, and handles on-premise environments very well. If your environment is lots of physical servers or lots of database servers, maybe start with a slower rollout of Clumio, but do not go with something else. Clumio is the answer to backup, now and in the future!
