Comparing SureBackup to the Competition

Post by Exrace » Mar 23, 2010 2:04 am

Is there any good white papers or reviews that show SureBackup compared to your competition.
I would love to see this compared side by side to the Commvault solution for doing VMware backups.

We use Commvault in house for the majority of the backups but the current solution from them is expensive and to me looks very inefficient.
As we grow our Vmware clusters we need a solid good performer that won't bankrupt our IT department.

Exrace, SureBackup is unique patent-pending technology not available from any other vendor. So there is no (and will be no) competition around this functionality.

If you are talking about comparing Veeam Backup & Replication product with Commvault product, unfortunately we don't have such document at the moment. Frankly, they have very weak solution comparing to other competitors we have. As a result, we never run into them in competitive situations, and thus never needed to invest in creating such analysis. The only times we see them is when prospects already own the product (like yourself).

Would you like to maybe see a demo of our product with our System Engineer so that you may be could compare the products yourself, knowing Commvault very well?

We might entertain that soon as we are trying to decide on a product but the team here is going to push for Commvault.
What will be the upgrade path if the current product is purchased now?
Do you offer any discounts like the backup upgrade anymore?

Yes, we offer competitive upgrade discount right now, but it is not as aggressive as last year. You should check with your preferred resellers for quote with competitive upgrade in mind.
