“Our experience with Nirix was well worth the amount paid. While it is true that there may be less expensive options, we were confident that Nirix would be able to provide a superior product at a competitive price with fewer headaches, and they certainly delivered. Our overall role in the entire oneRecovery experience was minimal; Nirix provided all of the “heavy lifting” and we were up and running in a short period of time with minimal hiccups. The few problems we did experience were quickly resolved by Nirix without delay.
We had some concerns in moving to a cloud backup solution – our previous backups consisted of a series of portable hard drives that were taken offsite daily, so moving to the cloud was quite an undertaking. Our concerns mostly revolved around the speed and bandwidth that would be required. Knowing how much data we do have that has to be regularly backed up (5+ TB), we weren’t convinced that our bandwidth could handle it (our Internet can be intermittent at our office). Nirix explained their solution in detail, from the hardware apparatus to the ddup, compression and encryption that occurs, all of which helped alleviate our fears.
The initial backup was done on site on a portable hard drive, which Nirix then picked up and copied to their data centre so that our bandwidth wasn’t clogged transferring the large first backup. All of the subsequent incremental backups have been done with no noticeable hit to our bandwidth; all in all, we have been very impressed with the oneRecovery solution.”
