"Easy and Secure Backup Platform"

What do you like best?

Easy to setup and use.

I like how it integrates with other applications like AWS.

You can create a backup for your SQL databases from local server and have it stored on their Cloud platform.

Fast synchronization speeds and highly secured platform.

What do you dislike?

To use certain feature like cloud storage and server backup additional license is required and its quite expensive.

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

This platform really saves on time to backup files and its easy to use, essential for any business and has recovery options as well as remote access which I believe its quite helpful, I would recommend its implementation any day.

"How this product helped me grow."

What do you like best?

It's predictable backup it is secure and all the backups i do aren't compromised by attacks or anything . It's priced moderately and whenever i need to any kind of support it's always available .

I'll highly recommend this product to growing businesses.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that i dislike is it's only available for windows servers .While most of the servers by small businesses use linux platforms as they are open source . So this is the only thing i dislike about it .

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a great product . Go for it !

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

Well i am currently using it to backup my data efficiently and securely. . Using this product i don't have to worry about losing my important data .

"Great for small businesses"

What do you like best?

The single screen control is very user friendly. It's convenient that you can choose to back up your data to both onsite and offsite. The free trial was a great way to figure out if this tool would work for us.

What do you dislike?

We haven't really had any problems, so for now, no complaints.

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

Luckily, we haven't had to use the disaster recovery feature yet, but that's the main reason we started using this product. We feel much more confident now knowing that 100% of our data is backed up. Also, as a small business, we're probably not going to be a target for ransomware, but it's great to know that BackupAssist can both detect and protect against it.

"Great Backup software, modular costing too."

What do you like best?

Setting up backups are no hassle, restoring is equally simple.

What do you dislike?

When I first began buying and using BA I found the backup types a little confusing but having read the site guides, its much easier to understand now.

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

Large Backups were taking too long, using system protection with incremental backups to NAS and data containers I can restore to dates while only using minimal extra backup data to achieve this.

What do you like best?

The price. Your money really worth it, even the scope of this solution is limited

If your enviroment is not too big, and your virtual servers are in Hyper-V, BackupAssist is the correct choice for you no hesitation

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

Basically BackupAssist helped me to make trustable backups of my SQL Servers

"good backup system for virtual machines."

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use of this product. It 's easy to schedule backups of virtual machines on different systems. like vmware and hyper-v.

The restore solution for Exchange servers is excellent. It 'easy to perform a granular restore of an Exchange server.

What do you dislike?

The exchange server management is delicate, it happens to have incompatibilities or incomplete backup. Most often this is independent of the backup software, but is given by exchenge. make good maintenance on the exchange database and apply system updates can solve.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

backup assist è una soluzione all in one per gestire i backup. è un marchio che da tanto tempo è sul mercato. è un punto di riferimento per questo genere di prodotti. backupassist è fondamentale che tutti le società che gestiscono una grande quantità di dati.

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

I used very often the program to manage the backups of virtual machines. But the feature I use the most is that of exchange, I am often contacted by clients to recover deleted mail by mistake. with a good backup management you can increase data security.

What do you like best?

Once configured correctly, the backup jobs run well

What do you dislike?

The user interface is a little tricky to understand when it comes to initially setting up rotation schedules when you only have one daily and one weekly disk.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This product is one of the best I've worked with for offline backup

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

Regular offline backups that can be rotated are completed with no manual intervention.

Restoring data is also a quick and easy process.
