We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"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."
"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."
"From a disaster-recovery point of view, one of the things I really like is that I can test the virtual copy of the physical server on a test network and compare the servers side-by-side, without interfering with the production network. So I can see and make sure that the latest copy of the server is the physical copy of the server, without interfering with production."
"I like this product because it is easy to use."
"Quorum OnQ has taken the guesswork out of backup/recovery and disaster recovery."
"The interface for this solution is excellent, and it is easy to restore files compared to other solutions."
"Veritas is good for small environments."
"This solution is not complex and you do not have to be too technical to use it."
"Its reliability and the fact that we have all the skills that we need for Veritas Backup Exec are the most valuable."
"The solution is stable."
"The product makes it easy to restore data."
"The solution is good for small and medium-sized businesses."
"Good open file option feature, SQL agent, and EM agent."
"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."
"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."
"The user interface needs to be improved."
"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."
"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."
"Better integration with cloud-based solutions like Azure and Office 365 is needed."
"Lacks compatibility in terms of supporting other OS."
"The backup is not robust enough when you have a lot of technology."
"Something within the software itself isn't quite right. There may be a bug or glitch. It will work fine for weeks and then all of a sudden it just tanks."
"The pricing of the solution is a bit high."
"The pricing could be improved."
"I would like to be able to create a restore task that can be scheduled so that the same restore action will be performed automatically."
"In the future, their console should not be complicated."
"The price of this solution is very high."
"The pricing is an area of improvement and the mode of marketing it."
"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."
"The solution could be more cost-effective."
"It has a good price-value ratio. Its price-value ratio is better than Veeam."
"There is an evaluation license available to test this solution."
"Its price is reasonable."
"The price of Veritas Backup Exec could be reduced and we pay annually for the license. However, compared to other solutions, such as Veeam, it is less expensive."
"It is a mid-range solution on the pricing scale."
"The price is reasonable for the features it offers."
"Licensing depends on the part of the backup you're using. If you have SQL backup, then you must have a SQL license. If you have normal data backup, you would require a license for that."
