The hidden cost of point solutions.

Do you know how much you're really spending?

The hidden cost of point solutions

More appliances

Point solutions usually recommend external deduplication devices, dramatically increasing costs for VM backups at scale.

Costly servers

Point solutions require expensive, high-performance servers — just to run VM backups.

Multiple installations

Customers with growth must install multiple, separate instances to backup different parts of the environment.

Wasted time

Point solutions lack a scalable backup catalog, resulting in poor search capabilities, which means lots of time spent searching through VMs and backup sets to find the right data and the right VM.

Extra licenses

You may find you have to buy extra third party licenses to enable search and other functionality.

Apply the right VM backup technology
at the right time.

Flexible Options to Cover Your Elastic Needs.

Not all virtual machines are created equal, so why treat them all the same? While other “VM Backup” products require you to add on additional hardware and third party software licenses to meet your changing and dynamic VM backup & recovery needs, Simpana software takes a friendlier and more cost effective approach. By treating every VM as unique and special, we make sure you meet the recovery & retention requirements for each separate VM workload, all in a single solution with a single application, and without hidden costs.

Dave Bartoletti, Forrester
