ShadowProtect SPX - useful, and smooth.

What do you like best?

The smooth and user friendly interface. It, as a whole, provides a very easy to use experience, with all aspects of the service clearly laid out - the visual aspect has tenacious attention paid to it, and really gives little to no difficulty in day to day use, or even at setup.

What do you dislike?

The requisite of purchasing from a reseller, rather than being able to easily purchase directly from the company. It took us several weeks before we were able to obtain use of the service, which I believe is more hindering to a business than of any use. The setup period is also going to be a point of issue for those not versed correctly in high end, large scale IT solutions. Service costs may be quite high as a result during the setup period.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Contact others in administrative positions if you're looking to get ahold of the product. Asking around is the only real way you'll be able to purchase a copy. It is not ideal, but should you find a reseller, it is truly an indication that you are in the position that confirms this is the right product for you.

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

Considering the size of our company, we require a consistent, trustworthy IT solution for the large amounts of data we handle day to day. Our employee's data is kept safe as a result of utilising ShadowProtect SPX, and in the event of a system failure that damages the data we keep(which has previously occurred), we were able to tend to and fix the issue.

Very feature rich, but only for the right environment,

What do you like best?

The backup exploration is really helpful, we use in combination with our BDR system. It's very in-depth and has been invaluable to our company. The VirtualBoot option is an option we've used less-often, but it's nice to have that safety net available to us.

What do you dislike?

The licensing for us at least is by-server. This ends up being a very costly expense for an appliance that in an ideal world we'd never have to use.

Potentially this is the fault of our reseller, I inherited this system from my predecessor and overall while it's been great software, I've been unable to justify the price point.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are cheaper options for smaller companies I would consider. Veeam and BackupExec both have similar features that for a cheaper price will get the job done.

However if you would like the full in-dept suite of applications this allows you to use, and if the budget is there for it. ShadowProtect has been a boon to our data security.

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

An entire backup strategy, for both web and SQL applications. The hourly snapshot backups have been remarkably useful. I wish it would integrate with SQL more to create .BAK files instead of a manual maintenance plan being put into effect, but overall it's been very solid.

Great product!

It has a bit of a learning curve, but give it time and it will be a breeze to use!

Its a great product for backing up our data. Lots of storage too! We already would have lost a lot of data if it hadnt been backed up with this software. We make it a habit to backup all important data on a weekly basis with ShadowProtect.
