Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"When it comes to recovering what you need from a backup, it's really easy. You just drill through the directory, find the file and the date that you want, and click to recover. You then pick the directory you want to save it in. Usually, it takes a minute or two and it's done. It's quick and easy.""The most useful feature is the one-click recovery.""It's easy to implement, easy to spin up, easily configurable, to drop-in appliances and network. There wasn't a lot of time needed to spin it up.""Quorum OnQ has a good ransomware protection feature, and customer service and support were very good.""The change in the way that Quorum processes data has made a tremendous improvement in backup and replication times. While the familiar interface remains, the underpinnings have been finely tuned and the speed is incredible. My large Exchange Server went from 5- to 6-hour backups down to 22 minutes.""It does automated tests to the systems to make sure that you could spin them up if you needed to. And if something doesn't come back up in those tests, we get a notification saying the system didn't come back up.""A very high level security environment for secondary data.""One of the biggest features is that, even on the absolutely run-of-the-mill box, if I lose any one of my servers I can automatically bring it up virtually on the physical onQ Quorum device."

"I like the fact that you can recover the VMs inside the appliance. For example, they're basically running this appliance on a Linux-based distribution, and they're spinning off KVM virtual machines inside.""When I have had to use tech support, they've been very good.""They have great support.""I really like the reporting options you get for various email reports.""It's not easy to scale it."

Cons
"The one thing they could do is some tweaking on the web solution that's supposed to monitor everything from one page, rather than having to bring each server up on its own webpage. It doesn't always accurately show what the system's state is at the time, and we have to restart that process now and then.""I would really like it if they followed comparable products from other vendors and had an option where you could offload to tape. I know it sounds incredibly antiquated, but the benefit I see is that there would be a better air gap than you have with backing up to an online source.""I would like to see iSCSI support added so that NAS storage servers could be protected. We heavily utilize NAS storage and the risk there is minimal backup options. Currently, we are backing up NAS to NAS which is costly and slow. Being able to integrate NAS server backup would be the last item on my Quorum bucket list.""Quorum OnQ can be improved by providing support for other operating systems like Ubuntu.""It would be beneficial if file culling could be more granular.""Better integration with cloud-based solutions like Azure and Office 365 is needed.""One thing that could be done to improve it would be a single pane of glass for doing disaster recovery testing, where I could have remote consoles in one place... I still have to go to each location in a browser and then bring up the console. I'd like to see them integrate that into a single pane of glass so I don't have to go to each server.""The user interface needs to be improved."

"There's a lot that can be made better. For example, it could be more scalable.""It seems like Unitrends moved away from enterprise customer engagement and moved more towards the managed service provider market.""I would like to see more storage options for the free version.""I would like to see the real-time replication process improved, and a zero RPO feature added.""Probably the biggest issue I've had is actually paying for the unit, and part of that problem is that they use a third party for the billing."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The initial expenditure for us was a little under $40,000 for the recent renewal. For the first three years after that, other than electricity, there's no cost. After that, their support contract has to be renewed annually. We spent close to $6,000, between the two offices, for support.""When we quote the price of Quorum to customers, they find it expensive.""The pricing is about $1,400 a month. It's a little bit on the higher side. But it's one of those situations where time is valuable for me. So if it costs a little bit more money for me to have a solution that just works and requires less of my day-to-day management, I'm willing to pay a little bit more."

"With respect to cost, my advice is to get what you need.""Their licensing depended on the number of CPUs you had."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: Quorum OnQ has taken the guesswork out of backup/recovery and disaster recovery.
Top Answer: My advice is to take a look at both the on-premises and cloud offerings from Quorum. We have been using an on-premises solution but we will probably evaluate the cloud version come renewal time.
Top Answer: It would be beneficial if file culling could be more granular.
Top Answer: When I have had to use tech support, they've been very good.
Top Answer: I think it's a decent platform to go with; I don't have any issues with it. I guess the one thing that I would say is get a bigger unit than what they recommend because if I had done that, I wouldn't… more »
Top Answer: Probably the biggest issue I've had is actually paying for the unit and part of that problem is that they use a third party for the billing. When my sort needs to be renewed, I'm never notified. So… more »
