Datto vs Axcient: know which one is right for your business

If you’re searching for a new business continuity solution, you may be dealing with analysis paralysis as you review specifications and track down reviews to make the best choice. A look at Datto vs Axcient platforms bring some major technological prowess to the table, but there are some key differences between the two that could make your choice easier. Read on for some important factors to consider before investing in your business’s next continuity solution.

Datto vs Axcient: Ease of use

Even among tech-savvy businesses, some employees may be slow to adapt to new software. However, Datto offers a system with instant screenshot verification of backups. This technology can help even your most Luddite employees retrieve files. In addition, the Datto SIRIS 3 is the world’s first all-flash continuity device and provides a new level of user-friendliness. By contrast, some Axcient resellers have complained about customer service issues and other problems when deploying this software for their own patrons.

Datto also holds the edge when it comes to your ability to quickly extract backed-up data. The Datto SIRIS 3 can export information to another virtual host without leaving your data tied up in a lengthy conversion. Although you may hope you never need to test the effectiveness of your continuity software, when a disaster hits, you’ll want a system that can get your business back up and running immediately.

Datto vs Axcient: Backup frequency

The frequency with which your cloud solution generates backups may not be on your shortlist of factors. However, businesses that generate and update records around the clock may benefit from Datto’s software. The SIRIS can detect changes to system files and immediately generate a backup without reinventing the proverbial wheel.

By contrast, Axcient’s agentless system requires installation on the destination server, which may slow the backup process. Axcient’s server also stops creating new backup files once it’s been deployed in an emergency. Why should that matter? It means you could find yourself with no record of work performed since the crash if replacing your hardware takes time.

Datto vs Axcient: Physical Security

Data is the heart and soul of your business, and you need to know that it’s protected. While both providers offer 24/7 security to protect their physical data centers, Datto has five secure offsite storage centers in geographically diverse locations, compared to just coastal locations for Axcient. That said,you’ll be able to rest assured that your data will remain secure given the level of redundancy that Datto offers.
