Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It's so easy to work with.""The most valuable feature is the portability of large archived data. You're able to put things on large on-prem, low-cost storage and then augment that with even lower cost storage in the cloud.""The solution can be used for all Office 365 applications."

"The feature that I like the most is the system backup recovery from OneDrive.""This covers the areas of backing up Office 365 that Microsoft does not include in its standard routine.""The product is easy-to-use.""The most valuable feature is the integration with our Teams environment.""The most valuable feature is that we don't need different agents to back up our files from different accounts.""The solution provides good backup services for Microsoft 365.""Its ability to restore at the item level is very valuable. It is very strong at that. In the past, we had to restore a lot of data only for a couple of items. We can now restore an item as well as an email, which is good for productivity.""I want an additional copy of my data in the Office cloud and it works."

Cons
"It would be nice if the solution was more complete. Many customers are looking for a single solution or silo that they can manage everything from. It would be nice, instead of having different products, if everything a client needed was in one solution.""It's a good product, but it's becoming outdated and moving to their other primary architecture.""The solution needs faster indexing."

More NetApp AltaVault Cons →

"The solution could offer better reporting.""We would like to have a single management console for all of our backups.""The pricing model is unnecessarily confusing and could be simplified.""Its price could be improved.""We have found that there is a limitation in this solution where it only takes the backup of users who are using Office 365 Enterprise email IDs. We have many users in management and approximately 50 other users who are using Office 365 of which Veeam is able to capture the backup. However, for the other users who are on the local email server at that time, the solution is not able to capture the backup.""The documentation for the installation is good. However, if you are new to the environment the installation could be difficult. The first time we did it it took approximately four days.""While I don't have a use case in mind, it would be great if they could integrate more automation capabilities into the solution.""The installation could always be a little bit easier. You do need to be a bit technical."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "You could compare it to a Dell EMC or ECS, and I think it's probably a little less costly than that. Within the marketplace, it's a medium cost."
  • More NetApp AltaVault Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing model makes this solution more expensive than it needs to be."
  • "This is not a stand-alone product and requires a standard Veeam license for your organization in addition to the cost of the solution."
  • "We looked at a few cloud options. When we did the comparison, we found it to be a cost-effective solution, and it included everything."
  • "The licensing price is quite high. It's expensive."
  • "We decided on Altaro because, from the point of view of the total cost, Altaro looks cheaper than Veeam. Veeam has a lot of costs that are not clear when you start it, which makes it less flexible than Altaro, but only after half a year, you can be really sure that you made a good decision."
  • "Its price is a little bit high, but it is a fantastic solution. It is more expensive than NetApp."
  • "I have a per-user license for the number of users and the mailboxes that I have."
  • "There is a license required for this solution and we pay annually."
