We were updating from v6 to v8 and it was quite difficult to do.

Very reliable backup solution

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: We have used Ahsay since 2003. Their product continues to get better with each new version. We are very happy with the functionality.

Vorteile:

This covers all necessary backup points in most networks. You can perform backup jobs to your whim. Even keep files backed up in near real-time with the synchronization features. Beyond that, there are agents for Exchange, Databases, etc.

Nachteile:

The per-agent costs is extremely high. It compares to industry standards, but for some reason the software developers feel there is more money in the retail side of operations that is really there. The reality is that companies like Backblaze are eating up the market share because their monthly fees are too low to compete with based on this model.

Ahsay Backup

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: After getting the software installed, it does not require much maintenance. The backups will fail intermittently for random reasons that are hard to identify with the reports and logs. The biggest frustration is how inflexible the company is with being able to change your licensing after the purchase. I initially purchased a bunch of workstation backup licenses with my order and then found that most of our clients go with server backups and dont need individual workstation backups running. So I wanted to remove the ACB workstation licenses from future maintenance renewals. Nope, I have to pay for maintenance on those or lose all of my maintenance. You can add more to your license, but you cannot downgrade or upgrade the workstation licenses to server licenses. Ahsay won't let you do it. So in order to keep getting future updates, they wanted me to keep paying maintenance on licenses I have never and will never use.

Vorteile:

The back and restore process works most of the time.

Nachteile:

The customer service staff is very inflexible on licensing changes after the purchase. If you buy too many licenses that you are not using, they will not allow you to remove them from your maintenance for subsequent years. You have to continue paying maintenance on licenses you will never use or the option is to not pay that maintenance and never get any future upgrades. Backup client doesn't always give much information on why a backup fails.

Antwort von Ahsay

vor 2 Jahren

Thanks for your comment. Regarding your maintenance, can you email me the details of your unwanted license on maintenance? I'll then see what we can do for you.

Good software, bad QA

3,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: It's a good software, popular in the online backup market, but with many issues. If I had another solution with less issues and as many options, I would probably switch - in the meantime I keep using it, doing workarounds for things that are not working properly, and hope that the next update doesn't break something else...

Vorteile:

Ahsay is very light and fairly easy to use. It has multiple modules to support the different types of backup.

Nachteile:

There are a few major irritants: the restore time is extremely long, so if you have a few terabytes, expect it to take days. When they bring out a new version, it happens often that they break something that was working before. We were never able to make the VM images and Office365 modules work properly, so we had to use another solution for those. Pricing wise, they have become less competitive since they started charging per server and module instead of per account. The fact that they charge for replication, which should be standard, convinced us to use our storage system to replicate directly instead of purchasing the module through Ahsay. Finally, as an MSP, their reporting is very bad, so we had to use a third party that connects to Ahsay to generate daily report logs.

Antwort von Ahsay

vor 2 Jahren

Thanks for your comment. We'll be working on enhancing the reporting in the future releases. For your VM and O365 backup, can you email your problems to us? Our Support Team should be able to help you out.

Monst reliable software with technical support for any online backup needs

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Our users are very happy with the software friendly interface. Resellers are satisfied with brandings options and we like the possibility of multi-destination to backups, replication options and the features of latest version 8. Which combines: all experience of version 6, plus stability of v7 with the unique new features like Office 365 backup, 2-factor authentication login, B2 and Wasabi support

Vorteile:

Recoverability, Data Compression Ratio and People (Technical Support).

Nachteile:

Backup server side could be less passive. It could have options like: stop running specific backups jobs and disconnect clients.

Reliable online backup but unreliable commercial support

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: The suite is a very good product and satisfied our company as msp and our customers for 7 years

Vorteile:

The software is reliable and full of options. Was our choice after TSM. Server side wasn't amazing and technical support average. New version looks like they improved server side but upgrade cost was huge so we still use the old V6

Nachteile:

A proper sales policy, and and maybe a little effort to be nice with overseas customer also if they are small.

Good backup software, unreliable company

4,0 vor 12 Monaten

Vorteile:

Installing and configuring is fine, as is the use of the backup sofware. Overal it works fine.

Nachteile:

The company is unreliable. We did have a maintenance contract, but when a new version came out (7), we did have to pay again to be able to use it. The investment was even higher then when we became a customer.

Honest Opinion from long time partner

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: I have been using this software for around 15 years. I have used this and brought this every company I have worked at and now that I own my own business, it was a perfect fit. The software is an easy sell to new clients and onboarding is great too. The only negative is pricing can work out expensive and the pricing modules is a bit all over the place. the support really needs to be UK based for its customers for them to have any effect. Waiting at certain times of day for help and not being able to speak to people is actually a big put off.

Vorteile:

The deployment / branding and quality of the product speak for itself. The varied types of backup you can perform and ease of which you can restore is quicker than other backup software I have used.

Nachteile:

the support time difference lets this product down. A support team in the UK would make the software experience 100% better and make me push this to my clients with more confidence.

Antwort von Ahsay

vor 2 Jahren

Hi Paul, thanks for your comment. We will continuously improve our product and support to meet your need. Currently, we have extended our support team to Philippines with our subsidiary there to extend our service hours. Will definitely put more effort on it in the near future.

Ahsay Review

Antwort von Ahsay

Thanks for your comment. Glad to know you like the easiness of the software, and the wide range of modules that we are offering. Regarding our US support service, now we have set up a new support office in Philippines which covers 18 hours already, with a leave 4-5 hours of support to US region. Can you let me know in details on your poor experience, and then I'll discuss with our team how we can improve in the future. Thanks!

A hidden gem in the backup market

4,0 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: Very positive. It's been consistently reliable and is very unobtrusive on both clients and server. We use a number of different backup solutions across our estate for various different applications so we have a good benchmark.

Vorteile:

This is an easy to use, easy to deploy and inexpensive solution. We spent a long time looking for a backup solution that would suit remote workers long before covid became a thing. Many of the solutions fall short of our requirements (eg. dynamic IP addresses, back up to our DCs, some users running Linux etc.) and are extremely expensive or will only run on Windows machines. This one ticks all the boxes and also provides a nice, intuitive interface for end users to restore files from their backups.

Nachteile:

The OBM solution for Linux servers has a very clunky restore process. Ideally, a web-based interface like the CBS server would be ideal, so it's a little surprising that this hasn't been done. The documentation is also a little convoluted, but ultimately gets the job done.

Ahsay ACB and OBM

3,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: We have been using this company's sw since 2005. Earlier versions were simpler and easier to get the
installed and clients oriented to it. We don't like the current version. The company has by and large been
pretty good about support except being 16 hours or so difference which on occasion has made things difficult.

Vorteile:

It usually works pretty well.

Nachteile:

It's extremely complicated. Installation is sometimes tricky and the sw is picky about OS settings. The company is located in Hong Kong and my concerns re the PRC coming in and taking over HK are going to force me to find another vendor. Originally we had customized it with our logos etc. Now it is too complicated.

Antwort von Ahsay

vor 2 Jahren

Thanks for your comment. Glad to know you like our support service. There's no issue on PRC to the business so far, and we can have same operation as usual. Therefore, you don't have to worry about that.

Excellent Backup Suite - Highly Recommended!

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: This suite has been a critical component of our data stability and management protocols; we have relied on data restorations via Ahsay on a few occasions and it has always been reliable and quick to return the data to a usable state.

Vorteile:

The ability to target backup data to a multitude of local and cloud data storage services was a key feature we were looking for, and Ahsay's ability to transport data directly (instead of pushing it through the management server first) greatly speeds up backup and restore operations. The availability of clients for every OS, application platform (MSSQL, MySQL) and cloud service we use (O365, OneDrive) make this a well-rounded system that meets all of our needs now and into the foreseeable future.

Nachteile:

Initially the speed for backing up large volumes of O365 data, particularly 20gb+ sized online mailboxes was too slow to be stable and usable. However in the last year or so the updates to this functionality have greatly improved this and no further troubles exist for us here. The only other concern we have is with the reporting options; the reports in general are great but with the volume of servers and end users a consolidated backup report indicating last successful backup, amount of data backed up and total data retention size would be very helpful

Antwort von Ahsay

vor 2 Jahren

Hi Mike, thanks for your comment. Better reporting is in our enhancement list, and will be releasing in future version.

Kommentare: Good. I havent left because it is easy. But I have had to switch some clients to other products because if their wants for a bdr. Bdr is becoming popular and ahsay doesnt do it

Vorteile:

Java based and easy to understand from a technical point of view.

Nachteile:

Licensing is complicated and seems to duplicate when wanting redundancy. Also dont have a bdr option for backup virtualization.

Antwort von Ahsay

vor 2 Jahren

Thanks for your comment. Regarding the licensing on replication (redundancy), the replication module's pricing is only additional 8.6% on the client software. So, it's not duplicated. In case you need any further clarification on it, please feel free to contact me. Regards :-)

P's and C's of Ahsay

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: GREAT---right up to the end.

Vorteile:

Love (ed) this product. Affordable solution for MSPs. Allowed me to manage it. Not priced by storage like the other rip-offs.

Nachteile:

I loved it right up to the point they changed the licensing. I requested a quote for the update/upgrade. I was sent a spreadsheet to "figure out" what licenses I would need for the upgrade. That is what salespeople are for. I was looking for a quote that said --- pay this much -- get this --- this will be the new version of your software. As a result, we are moving to a new product in the near future. The only issue I have ever had with Ahsay was communications. There is a certain amount lost in translation.

Antwort von Ahsay

Thanks for the comment. Regarding the communication, sorry about your bad experience. We'll try our best to make it smoother in the future.

Nachteile:

Unlike V6 where we could use OBM with multiple backup sets for many devices, with V8 it is per device billing makes it very hard to sell. When white labelled the name Ahsay appears in error reports this actually revels the name of Ahsay to our competitors and our white labelling value is lost
