Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""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.""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.""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.""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.""I like this product because it is easy to use."

"The most valuable feature is disaster recovery testing.""The stability of SRM has been excellent. It gets a nine-out-of-ten.""The most valuable feature is the integration with our Nutanix environment.""The most valuable feature is the automation, where you press a button and everything fails over seamlessly.""The product functionality is fairly high-quality.""VMware SRM is a very nice tool for disaster recovery for virtual environments.""Our systems fail over using SRM. So, we do a big bang DR, which is biannual, and we fail over our fairly massive Epic electronic health record (EHR) and our core applications. It takes us about 30 minutes to fail over using SRM, which is pretty good. In most hospitals that have Epic installed, Epic does the audit to make sure that we can fail over if something were to happen. Normally, sites will have a DR solution specific to the EHR, but right now, our pain point is the third-party tier-one clinical applications.""The product is evolving and the vendor is committed to change."

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.""Lacks compatibility in terms of supporting other OS.""Quorum OnQ can be improved by providing support for other operating systems like Ubuntu.""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.""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.""It feels to me like it's going to be a little bit more work than I originally anticipated when upgrading the appliance. I haven't done that yet so I can't speak from true experience, but I went through the project plan and it feels to me like there's quite a number of pieces and components and things that have to be done. Quorum is going to manage the rollout, but in starting the initial conversation there were a lot of unanswered questions""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 solution could improve by removing some of the limitations we have been facing. There could be better integrated.""The interface is not easy to use and can be made more user-friendly.""The configuration process could be improved.""What I think can be improved is the data replication aspect.""There are many functionality problems with the product currently. It is also slow and unstable.""There needs to be better stability during heavy capacity in future releases.""The biggest issue for us is that this product does not have any demo for customers.""The technical support is not very good and needs to make an effort to improve."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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 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 cost of SRM is a little bit high, especially for smaller companies.""The cost of SRM is on par with market rates.""There is an annual license to use this solution.""The licensing costs are increasing.""It is about $3,000 a year for the 25 pack. The package gives you the ability to protect up to 25 virtual machines.""The price of this solution is on the expensive side."

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: The UI is very user-friendly and testing is easy.
Top Answer: I am not involved with the pricing. We have a procurement team and sales team that work with the vendors.
Top Answer: Unfortunately, SRM is not stable and it therefore requires continuous monitoring. If there are any issues associated with the Center, SRM doesn't work well and as a result, it generates a lot of… more »
