Overall Satisfaction with Infrascale Platform

We are using the Infrascale Platform for disaster recovery which includes a full VMware virtual server environment backup. We have an onsite device, provided to us by Infrascale, that we can spin up should our VMware host servers go down and that device is mirrored to the Infrascale Cloud Center where we can spin up our virtual servers there, and/or have the cloud device shipped to us overnight for onsite deployment.
  • Makes consistent, verifiable onsite backups of our corporate data.
  • Makes consistent, verifiable offsite backups of our corporate data
  • Plays very nice with VMware, the infrastructure we currently use
  • The interface can use a serious update. It's understandable, but not modern.
  • I don't like the fact that it forced an upgrade to VMware. That's not something that can be done by every company very easily.
  • The restore process can be more intuitive.
  • Peace of mind: our entire virtual environment is backed up both onsite and offsite
  • As stated, it is pricey. Since we haven't needed to do anything more than basic file restores, ROI is hard to measure. A full restore of a virtual server immediately would be priceless. So, on that note, ROI is good.
I'll state up front that our VAR pushed us to Infrascale as they fully manage this particular choice/vendor for us. I manage the system itself, so I did have final approval. Between Axcient and Infrascale—they do exactly the same thing. I can say this about Axcient, their tech support was excellent. I haven't had cause to contact Infrascale support just yet, so no comment. Regarding Code42, this is one of those "less expensive" options I mentioned earlier. This is a super stable platform that provides straight backup (File/Folder), but not for virtual environments.
Well suited for a company that has an extensive virtual environment setup. Definitely a good choice for companies that require an in-depth disaster recovery system, especially when the infrastructure is hosted in house. This system is expensive on a monthly basis, so I would not recommend this to small businesses as there are less expensive alternatives out there.
