The original decision to use Retrospect occurred in the early 1990’s. The advantages then were many and it has withstood the test of time as a superior product. Examples:
There are many more advantages to this product. The internet is loaded with success stories.
I can create an automated script and it will back-up the client using the full or incremental method depending on the need. I can then restore that same data back to the client reliably and they can pick-up their work right were the left off. The user can also do the same for themselves if the configuration is set-up to allow it.
We have been able to restore data for several engineers over the years that would have been lost had it not been backed up. In one instance the 7 year old data from a Mac was restored to a PC and with a little conversion enabled the engineer to use it. Just as he did 7 years earlier.
I had grown frustrated with our previous solution called BackupExec. I really liked the user interface of Retrospect over our previous software.
Over the past eight years Retrospect has been a valuable resource for PADT, Inc. The software has “saved” many of our slips of the delete keys. We don’t expect to change anytime soon! I don’t ever recall having a failed or corrupted restore!
It was recommended as the preferred software for our first external drive - Maxtor One Touch II. This was over 7 years ago when we first started...
It has practically saved our business. We have had quite a few file restores over the years due to:
The fact that we have the option to perform either a complete restore on our operating system or just for a single file, coupled with the bonus that we can also transfer data to a new / different hardware has been priceless, absolutely priceless!
Been a Retrospect user since 2003. Well regarded. A system that we trust.
Easy to implement and configure. Low cost. Excellent support. A good backup is in the restore. If you can't restore, why backup? Retrospect has never failed in restoring from a backup.
Due to a natural disaster event with severe flooding here in Calgary June 2013, all of downtown (including our office) was going to be closed. We were able to grab our drive with all of our critical work backed up and a few laptops. We provided emergency communication work and business continuity at a temporary remote location for almost two weeks before we were allowed to return.
We have used Retrospect as a backup solution from the early days of version 6. So it seemed a natural progression to upgrade when it has proved necessary.
It has a simple and easy to use application window. Once the scripts and sets have been created you can almost leave it to do its job and safely forget about it. Each new upgrade has a great improvement over the last version.
Retrospect has helped us to backup and restore files upon request. Saving numerous of hours having to recreate corrupted or deleted files. It’s a valuable tool for archiving work and is a very much needed asset in recovery.
Wanted to continue using an application I already know and trust. Computers are critical to my architectural business. We use them to create our drawings, as well as typical business uses. We need to be able to restore data and get back to work in less than a day. A colleague who backed up “to the cloud” lost all data and it took 4 days to restore via the internet. We can’t afford to be down 4 days.
IT professional not required. I set it up myself. My architectural staff can use Retrospect themselves to retrieve a file, or even to restore the whole server after a disk failure. Easy to set up to do automatic backup every night, with once a week backup to second disk to be rotated offsite.
I have been using Retrospect for more than 15 years. During that time it has saved my life at least twice from total disk failure, once while I was out of the country and my staff had to recover everything on their own. We have used Retrospect numerous times to restore old versions of files that got mistakenly trashed or we discovered were corrupted.
Dopo aver fatto una ricerca su tutti i software di backup abbiamo scelto Retrospect perché era il software con il miglior rapporto qualità prezzo.
Creare backup job e pianificarne l'esecuzione è molto semplice, l'interfaccia è molto intuitiva.
lo Staff di retrospect ci ha guidato passo passo nell' installazione del software sui nostri sistemi, nella pianificazione dei backup e nella configurazione della reportistica.
We back up about 20 servers and some desktops. We currently back up both to local media and to Google Cloud.
We had an important server that died. We were able to install the OS on a new system and then restore the entire server onto that. It only took a few hours to have everything back exactly as it had been before.
When selling security solutions and services, it is key to understand the technologies but also feel that we will be supported in every step of the sale process. We signed up to the Retrospect partner programme in November 2012 as we were looking at standardising on a unique backup solution for our customers and decided to partner with Retrospect because they understand partner enablement and support! The partner kit includes various resources and we specifically loved their mini site that not only displays their content directly in our website so is immediately updated when they have new versions but also includes a few tools to help us create demand like a trial page and license upgrade options. This is a great endorsement for our prospects who feel that we are true partners, not just a partner logo.
As an Elite partner we also get extra visibility and extra attention! The Retrospect guys were able to join us and our customers and prospect for a business breakfast along with other vendors to discuss how our technologies (communication server, backup, storage etc..) work well together.
We specialise in IT security for SMB and deal with mixed environment. We have sold Retrospect for a long time and signed up to their programme in order to get special access to their resources sales, marketing and support teams.
The format of the Certification is very adapted to our needs: 1 hour online training & test providing good knowledge about the products and technical overview. We received access to the various resources straight after passing the test.
Retrospect sends us regularly partner ready emails that we can adapt to our look and feel and send to our customers and prospects to educate them on data protection.
