    “DocAve is easy to install and configure. The modular system makes it easy to expand the application in order to take care of our growing needs. Furthermore, application support for DocAve has to be one of the best I have encountered. No other competitor has ever allocated a technician to come onsite to review the deployment of the application and hold a Q&A session for our staff at no extra cost. The level of product knowledge displayed by the technician clearly showed us that DocAve was the product we wanted to use to replace our previous product.”

    “We use DocAve to perform granular backups and restorations for our intranet and extranet farms. We also use DocAve Report Center to monitor farms in order to ensure that the performance and uptime meets our user’s expectations.”

    “The major reason we chose DocAve was because their backup storage footprint was only 10% of what our previous solution used. This improved both the onsite and offsite storage capabilities of backups, with the added benefit of reducing the backup window for backups by 50%. For ten months, our previous vendor’s engineers investigated product problems and failed to produce any solution. We then decided to obtain a replacement solution as soon as possible.”
