What do you like best?

Does what it claims to do for a decent price. Very simple setup and pretty much a set and forget software. Administration is easy and really never much of an issue updating or changing settings. Also like the easy to read dashboard that is presented at login. It gives a nice overview of what is being backed up. I like that I can remove users from Google Workspace and the data will remain in Backupify indefinitely as an archive in case we ever need it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Interface is a little bit clunky and I really wish the search was a bit more robust. I really wish the search interface was modeled more after the gmail interface and included more search options for dates, attachments, and more advanced search parameters to help narrow down a search for a single item. I also had a heck of a time dealing with two factor identification on one of the administrator accounts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yes, It is very simple and easy to use but some of the features are lacking especially search. But the price is right for the features you get and i has yet to fail us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Backing up Google Workspace data and archiving old users in order to free up google user accounts when an employee leaves. It does this task very well. I have not realized any additional benefits over what I expected from the initial demos, but that is ok. The simple interface is also a feature in itself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

You sign into your Microsoft 365 tenant with a global administrator account and it will automatically connect to all the users in your organization and perform daily backups of EVERYTHING. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While the multifactor signin (using an authenticator app) is quite nice to make sure nobody signs in as you, if you ever delete the app or change phones, you MUST contact them to reset your MFA settings on your account. You are locked out until they correct your account (which is not something they do over the phone). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We stopped using home drives and backing up local network files because staff were wanting to access files off site and from personal mobile devices. Moving everything to OneDrive and Sharepoint Online, we were able to accommodate this need and also safeguard any accidental or intentional deletions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Backupify is the perfect robust add-on to my IT Environment that solves a number of problems for my 300 person company. It does exactly as it was sold, never fails, and is extremely easy to use. Also, Backupify is extremely affordable for being such an A-grade class of SaaS. The account management team is well run, the solutions engineers are top notch, and the SaaS performs without fail. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I could use a bit more UI Dashboard insight into the Availability Zones my data is going to. Particularly for Disaster Recovery SOC Compliance. However, this is not a must-have or completely lacking feature. There is this info available and Backupify issues it if you ask. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We can mitigate against ransomeware, protect against data loss and leak, protect against bad actors or departing employees, and rescue any content that once existed at any time in our GSuite org for an endless retention period. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love the peace of mind. Just because I'm in the Google cloud, doesn't mean my data is safe. I'm in the middle of a domain consolidation and I made sure to back up all users with backupify just in case the data is altered in transit. I love the speed of recovery. Get in, find what you need, get out. The search is very fast. The results are eaasy to read. The recovery options are easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like user management. I don't think it is possible to select more than one user at once. There is nothing to dislike, .Great service. Great support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are backing up our entire 0365 tenant, which covers us from a number of different ways data can be lost. With Sharepoint/Teams and outlook being the biggest programs we use that control all of our data essentialy its imperitive to have it covered and secure. The instant recovery is amazing and the simplicity is a golden feature.

I've searched around and done my research, worked with Acronis and Veeam in the past but this is the best one so far and all under 1 program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It just works. I used this solution at two employers. Once it is setup, it just runs. It has automatic features you can turn on like when new users are added to Google, it automatically starts the backup of that account. And when employees leave, you can set it to archive existing data. So as I say, you set it up and really never have to anything else unless you want to restore something. I found their tech support to be quick at getting answers to questions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not see a downside except you have to buy licenses in groups of licenses. But they have been flexible in doing what makes sense in that regard. Obviously, going in groups means less maintenance on their part or mine. Otherwise, it works great. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Having all data forever, even if it was deleted by a user. We had one user that left the company and when I removed their account from Google, we lost a doc they owned (by accident). And we did not discover it for months. Datto worked me through how to find it and restore it. Very cool! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Datto Drive has all the necessary features and market reputation to be trusted as a cloud data partner for backup of major files and folders in the most easy way. We are also using this cloud drive in our specific departments to share and collaborate via this drive. We can store all types of content which could of any format. It is quite a secured drive and have super fast uploading and downloading speeds. Being an authentic cloud drive, we can create accounts under the domain name of our company and can easily access and modify files anywhere and anytime. It has provide us with freedom to work from anywhere and collaborates in an easy way. We can also even integrate this drive with other software's which makes the flow of data being possible in a reliable manner. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We haven’t use this drive for a significant time, so there’s still lot more to explore about this drive. But being involved in the deployment stage, I can say for sure that it is taking quite more time than it’s supposed to be. Furthermore, its premium set of tools is also quite pricey and most of them doesn’t even qualify for such high price labels. But we are assure that it will be sufficient enough to fulfill all our needs to maintain backup of our professional contents. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Our main purpose on using this drive is to maintain backups for most of our content and data. However, we are also cooperating and collaborating by easy sharing of files in the company through this drive. We have maintained high standards of security on our cloud content and made it possible to share the files without any kind of security and privacy invasions. We can also allow other users with permissions or restrictions to access our certain public files. We can make quick decisions and better plans to modify our data and betterment in our organization.
