Very comprehensive and easy to manage backup solution

  • January 21, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
I really like that I can configure everything as disk-based backups that I can pull individual files or do a bare-metal restore of any server I'm backing up. The restore process is simple and intuitive and the entire system is easy to expand so that it can scale as your needs increase. Backups and restores are very fast due to the use of disks and the connections between servers, but you can also configure everything as virtual tapes for ease of management.
What do you dislike?
The basic console can be a little daunting at first, and training on how to use the system is an absolute must.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I have a single cohesive backup solution that I can use to directly or remotely manage all my servers and also have the backup repository automatically replicate offsite on whatever schedule I choose.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Try to plan ahead regarding your available backup space. Always build in a cushion over and above what you absolutely need in terms of disk space. It makes things much easier if you decide to expand or add servers shortly after your initial implementation.

Fantastic

  • January 06, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
The ability to automate backup and replication processes with granular reporting.
What do you dislike?
LUNs naming can be confusing for someone new to it.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
automated backup and replication process in one tool. this allowed us to be able to use one tool for our data migration processes instead of multiple tools to achieve the same goal.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
I would advise them to use falconstor as it is an all in one tool and has great end to end support.

Falconstor VTL solution for backup applications

  • January 02, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Stable and reliable operations. Easy and very intuitive management interface. Good functionalities
What do you dislike?
Standard generic driver support, so no provider specific driver like for example atape device driver for IBM LTO tape devices not usable, hence the multipath functionality of the device driver can not be used with the FalconStor appliance, which is very disappointing.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
You can emulate tape devices for your backup solution. Advantage of the VTL is that you can easily add mount points (tape devices) and tapes as required to meet your backup objectives. With physical tape devices and physical tapes this is mor a hastle and more complex as you need to physically intervene on the infrastructure.

Smart backup software!

  • May 24, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
I loved the user friendly software. It is easy to get around the software. The capabilities of this product is awesome. It has a predictive analysis option that is great. Worked perfect with everything we already has set up for the office.
What do you dislike?
Nothing really. The installation process was a little difficult but besides that the software itself was awesome. The support is not the best. It can take awhile for customer support to get back to you but once they do it is good.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It has helped with making good business decision. It saved us money from our last backup software and this one is a lot smarter. Saving time and effort when trying to backup and duplicate is always helpful.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you want a easy software to manage that is really smart and can help you in other areas this is the software for you.
