It's simplicity to install, configure, run and start operations on day 1. You don't need to be trained and basic understanding of back-ups works. It's patented solutions with agentless back-ups for Virtual machines and for physical environments makes it sustainable. It supports most known backup storage solutions.

CONS

support for Hyper-V which again isn't a concern as I don't use this hypervisor

Reason for choosing HYCU Protégé Data Protection as a Service

HYCU is the simplest and easiest backup product to work with. Also it's wide range of application/HCI support made it easier. Moreover the pricing is well within budgets.

Hycu Backup and Recovry

We have had a very good experience with product implementation and design from HYCU, and have extended our clusters with WORM and Azure with significant support from HYCU.

PROS

The feature is simple to use and manage, the updates are straightforward with minimum downtime, and is integrated very well with Nutanix AHV. The support is of a very high standard from the documentation with Nutanix, and also the product knowledge of the support staff, of not HYCU but all of the applications backed up.

CONS

We have asked for a few more features on the Validity testing, and forever incremental backups.

Reason for choosing HYCU Protégé Data Protection as a Service

HYCU integrates very smartly with Nutanix, and in this case proved a perfect fit to our requirements.

Vendor Response

HYCU is a trusted partner

It has been a set it and let it run tool for us, of course we verify backups daily but unless we change something, it just works.

PROS

Easy to use and great support and documentation.

CONS

There is a learning curve with HYCU. Moving from traditional backup software to HYCU backup anytime and figuring out policy setup took a little bit but I had a backup running within 3 hours of starting the setup process.

Reasons for switching to HYCU Protégé Data Protection as a Service

Moved to Nutanix and vRanger did not support Nutanix at the time.

Vendor Response
