Asigra Cloud Backup Reviews & Product Details

Asigra Cloud Backup Overview

What is Asigra Cloud Backup?

Asigra is an Enterprise Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) software platform that MSPs host and operate themselves as part of your services portfolio. And because MSPs own it, they control the customer relationship, the margins, and the pricing, which makes the MSP more valuable to a potential buyer. MSPs are partly valued by their number of secure customer relationships — one where they own what they sell, and they control the price, quality, service and customer communication. This is unlike insecure customer relationships shared with predatory cloud service vendor suppliers who can (and often do) steal the relationship. It’s not possible to own everything you sell. But it is possible to own some of it; specifically, the must-have products for all digital environments, like BDR software. Asigra was the first (and still the only) BDR software that keeps you out of the Attack Loop, the latest hacker move that has already taken out so many companies. And Asigra reduces risk exposure with multiple layers of protection including retention immutability, multi-factor authentication, password-free biometric authentication, backup renaming and a soft-delete for administrators. But most importantly, Asigra builds measurable value for your MSP. Because when you own what you sell and it’s worth buying again and again, your customers become assets you can leverage to garner a higher price when you eventually sell your MSP business.

Seamless backup processes can be achieved using Agentless architecture. It addresses ease of implementation and management. The solution was born in the cloud and it is for the cloud. It can be setup as public, private and even hybrid cloud. If protects critical data including applications and databases. Protected critical data can be in physical servers, virtual machines and even in cloud.

Restore Validation is a great tool to check if backup can be restored and can be used in DR drill because it simulates restoration without the need of target resources. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Asigra has led the way in the space for over 25 years. David and his team have been perfecting this product for for over two decades. I know that my client's data is safe and sound using the Asigra technology and I can restore anything from anywhere with zero hassle. The agentless technology works flawlessly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Asigra has always used a heavy client/server based management option. I am happy they have launched and are incorporating more and more functionality into their web based management console with each release. Would like to see more functionality in this tool as I find myself relying on the DS-Operator tool more than the web console. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I really like Asigra's agentless backup system. I can install the DS-Client on one machine in our customer's environment and it will backup every machine on that network. I don't have to install the program on multiple machines.

Their DS-Operator and Asigra Management Console make it easy to monitor our whole Asigra environment in one plane of glass.

Asigra's support staff is very knowledgeable and their support site has a very in depth knowledge base that has the solutions to most of the issues that have arisen in my use of the product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The best thing about Asigra is that it is a complete end to end data protection solution that provides flexible and robust data protection solution. You can backup any data type you want to. Being agentless helps in quick deployment and upgrades without any hassles.

What do you like best?

This is the best backup solution I have used. Very easy to setup and very user friendly. I have administered other backup solutions like comvault, and symantec. This is by far the easiest and best solution for a Managed service provider. The ability to not have an agent on every server that needs to be backed up is great. No extra overhead on the servers. The tech support is outstanding as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think the event log needs some work. The error's that show up in the log sometimes don't make a lot of sense. It takes a while to determine what the actual failure is.

The backups don't work well over small network pipes. We have many customers that we support that don't have a high bandwidth circuit so the backups could run for days for a large amount of data. And then after running for so long, the end up failing anyway.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Over the years we have upgraded our system a few times and need to keep our customers data while moving into new hardware, Asigra does this and does it well. We are currently upgrading hardware and looking at new major version soon and this overall due to the last few years of upgrades going so well this is not a "scary" process.

I love that the solution is VERY salable and robust. We are a MSP and there is very few products that offer the security needs we require and also the speed. For DR tests, backing up and restoring data Asigra does it all and does it well. Their tech support is great and knowledgeable. When we have had emergency issues over the years I have always gotten prompt excellent support, whether it is account team or tech support. They also have a features add forum where the developers put more time towards the requested items to make the product better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I enjoy the fact that this is an agent-less backup system. As an MSP we setup multiple customers and not having to install an agent on every server is great time saver. Also we are now learning about the new AMC. I think its a great tool. integrating an antivirus to help protect against ransomware is amazing. I look forward to implementing this server in our environment soon. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The retention settings can be a little confusing. Another draw back with Asigra is that support is usually a few versions behind Red Hat Linux. We had an issue with a customer who was liked to update Red Hat within a month of the update coming out. We had to have them drop the service pack of Red Hat just to install Asigra. Researching errors can be a little cumbersome on the support site. Unlike other products where a quick google search will solve most of your issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My recommendation would be to use RedHat Linux servers for your DS-System and BLM. Its a little bit harder to configure. However we noticed we have had less issues with Linux over the windows servers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

One of the biggest benefits to our company is being able to backup multiple clients with out having agents installed on every server. This saves time and resources during new customer setups.

During ACA and ACS Asigra certification, I realised the power of this backup solution. DS-User friendly environment, give access to everything. From the way you want your environment to look, to security, configuration like create different users, backup sets, retention rules, schedules, observing event logs, errors and warnings, controlling backup bandwidth and a lot more. And this is just the DS-User. There are different tools like DS-Operator for service providers Administrators, DS-NOC web interface and many more. Backup and restore of file systems, folders on different OS or VMs become an ease case for any user. The tool give accurate information for backups and restores and guides the user to reach successful results. And on the top of that, our backup and our customer's backup are protected from Attack-loop. In any case there is a free access on a huge knowledge base where Asigra support helped users with their difficulties or problems and all cases are published for everybody. I cannot think a better agentless cloud backup solution where all function properly and in case of an issue, Asigra support team is present. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Asigra is still one of the true do it all backup solutions that is on the market with the ability to protect so many different types of data. There are very few solutions that I have used in the past or use to this day that have the ability to protect such a wide range of platforms with a single solution. A lot of other solutions are focused solely around protecting at image levels giving you the entire VM back as quickly as possible which I agree is essential for fast DR however there is very little integration for PostgreSQL, MySQL, DB2 and so on in these solutions with the only way to get the data back performing an Instant VM. While that works Asigra allows you to control exactly what you want to take and how often you want to keep it with powerful retention rules making data storage way more efficient, why keep an image of an entire machine for 7 years when what you actually need is the database and only the latest server image. Asigra is second to none in this scenario.

Asigra have always been very security focused and with the FIPS 140-2 accreditation gives peace of mind to end users and service providers knowing that their data is secure which in the modern world of compliance is something that is essential and something that Asigra has had baked in for many years.

The entire solution is very wan and storage optimised ensuring that data is transferred offsite as quickly and efficiently as possible to ensure you can follow the 321 rule and get your data air gapped to protect against ransomware.

One of the biggest benefits for Asigra is its agentless nature allowing us to protect environments without having to worry about deploying lots of different agents. This is especially beneficial for protecting Cloud resources such as AWS, Azure and Google hosted environments as you can protect various different resources easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One of Asigra's strongest features is always its biggest weakness, the wan and storage optimisation that ensures data is sent offsite as quickly as possible and stored as efficiently as possible can limit the speeds at which it restores. Asigra at present cannot compete with some of the other backup solutions with Instant VM and recovery so DR is slower than other solutions when you want to recover an entire machine however when you want data from years ago it is leaps and bounds ahead. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Choose this solution if you want complete control over your data retention and the ability to store years of data efficiently. Please take note to ensure you use a valued Asigra partner to set this up as like a house built on poor foundations the solution will perform poorly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are protecting numerous environments from small/medium businesses to enterprises ensuring that all their data protection needs are met and satisfied. Whether this is private, public or hybrid cloud setups including protecting data that is held within AWS, Google or Azure.

Asigra is significantly better than many other solutions that are out there for data retention and the overall efficiency of storing that data. Equally with Asigra I trust that if the data has been backed up successfully and cleanly that it will restore with no problems at all. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Having used Asigra for over 15 years I know that if it's been set up correctly by an experienced trained engineer then it will restore what you have backed up and restore is the key to any backup solution. Asigra will restore your valuable company data if the worst happens.

Asigra has vast support for many different types of Operating Systems and Applications. Agent-less design means there is less management required of the solution and as its a secure FIPS 140-2 certified solution it ensures the data it backed up remains secure and can be restored. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There will be lots of reviews regarding dated GUI's which Asigra are addressing but if you know the solution and the GUI's they are easy to use and configure.

As Asigra is secure and has a great compression algorithm it means data cannot always be restored as quickly as some other solutions but it will restore the data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you require a secure solution that supports lots of different Operating Systems and Applications and will keep data cost effectively for a long time then Asigra could be the solution for you.

What do you like best?

Asigra Cloud Backup is a straight forward and powerful tool for backing up anything you would need in a typical production environment. Its really helpful to have one product that can backup everything as opposed to hoping between different services. It is easy to create new backup sets using Asigra. Monitoring backups and investigating errors is simple because they give you the tools to do so. The install process is simple and the scheduling feature is powerful.
