Your data is to important, use a 3rd party backup solution

What do you like best?

It's very easy to use, just connect your Google Apps account and you're set. I really like the insights you get. You can see any problem and if necessary you can solve it based on that given information. A backup function is good but a working restore is even more important! 2 years ago, I remove by accident the contact list on my new Android phone and within seconds this change was synced to the cloud and all my contacts has been deleted. Thanks to spanning I was able to recover that contact list with a few simple clicks!

What do you dislike?

A backup solution isn't a an application you very much (thanks god). If you have many (less active) users in your organisation the price for each site might be a bit high. It would be better if they would offer different accounts: small and bigger ones. Of course for different prices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always use a 3rd party backup solution for your data. Even Google can fail.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Google Apps data for my organisation is safe. Even i the a Google server fails. I think this is important and gives me more freedom.

Best, most reliable backup system yet

What do you like best?

Unlimited capacity per user. Client-less. Server-less.

What do you dislike?

Can backup multiple users concurrently, but can only restore one user at a time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Administrators are able to backup multiple accounts at once if they were not already set to backup on their own. However, restores can only be done one use at a time per administrator.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Needed a reliable cost-effective off-premise backup system. Did not want hosted offsite storage or on-premise "appliances" for DR.

What Backup solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Great product

What do you like best?

Very easy to use, very well integrated with the Google cloud platform. Well detailed debug output when needed.

What do you dislike?

A bit difficult to connect to on premises systems in. Cost effective way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Document and plan your deployment in detail and early

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data resiliency is of utmost importance, and having confidence in the tools of resiliency themselves is equally important.

Review: Spanning Backup for Google Apps

What do you like best?

Spanning is easy to use and allows looking at mailboxes within the app without having to restore.

What do you dislike?

Pricing model requires 1 year commitments for each license. So, if someone leaves the organisation, you're paying for an unused license.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Information integrity and availability are significantly lower on the list of our concerns with Spanning in place.

Spanning is a must for Google Suite

What do you like best?

Spanning allows you to quickly and easily migrate emails, calendars, and contacts in Google Suite. Data recovery in a snap!

What do you dislike?

There isn't anything about Spanning that I don't like.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When one user wants to share their Google contacts with another user it takes me seconds to set up the transfer. This is so much faster than the Google Suites method of transferring contacts, and I can do it all remotely.
