"Is nice but"

Comments: So far so good, we manage to solve the issues we faced some days

Pros: I love that the backup goes directly to the cloud, and even that slows down the Servers and the network is not that bad and you can schedule the replications time.

Cons: You get fail notifications, but if you want success notifications there is no way to do it.
In case of support need it you need to pay more even when you are already paying a lot for the service

"One of Microsofts more expensive products, with average delivery."

Pros: Great integration with other Microsoft tools, and even other operating systems. User-friendly for storing data (Very secure,) great for beginners to set up.

Cons: Pricing is affordable but can get very expensive right away. The pay-as-you-go option is deceptive. Tech support is at an additional cost.

"Perfect for in-cloud backup"

Comments: This is a great tool to easily back up data on an Azure based VM.

Pros: It is now very easy to enable and configure for workloads running on servers within Azure. There are options to configure the basic settings directly on the virtual machine blade itself.

Cons: It is not a great option for local workloads. While you can configure it for local and cloud backup it is cumbersome and the reporting is not the greatest.

"A high capacity software to backup our data."

Comments: The application of this software is of high importance since it is a unified solution, which offers greater security, reduces time and is much faster than using manual or other methods that end up being more expensive, however this does not mean that they stop be used, but it is more novel to have a product that allows you to backup in the cloud since it allows greater data mobility and greater efficiency in everything related to data backup.

Pros: One of the key points of this product is that it allows a local protection in the cloud, is independent of the geographical location as well as where the servers or a client reside, the security is advanced and offers a good encryption, so that your application is useful if you want to make a backup of maximum security and high quality, also as it is in the cloud access to data is much easier, and is less expensive and faster than using manual methods or through magnetic tapes or simply Relying on free software is much more reliable for both my company and the customers associated with it.

Cons: Only one copy can be programmed so it is somewhat limiting in this regard since in other software several backups can be made.
