What Is Cove Data Protection?

Cove Data Protection, from N-able, is a cloud-first backup and disaster recovery service for servers, workstations, and Microsoft 365™, all managed from a multitenant web-based dashboard.

Cove was created and optimized for the cloud, so incremental backups are up to 60 times smaller than with traditional image backup products. This allows you to back up more often, and the SaaS delivery format reduces administrative time, lowering your cost of service delivery. Storage in our private cloud is included, with data centers worldwide.

Cove delivers full image recovery, as well as fast file/folder restore, including the option to set up a recovery environment in Microsoft Azure. Cove's architecture also helps reduce your attack surface, as primary backup storage is isolated by default, off the local network and out of the reach of ransomware that may be there.

Who Uses Cove Data Protection?

Ideal for managed service providers or internal IT teams that need easy-to-use, affordable, cloud-first data protection and recovery for diverse environments.

Simple And Effective Backup

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: SolarWinds saved the day when disaster struck one of our clients, we were able to restore everything quickly and easily as if nothing had happened. Common backup and rescue media is easy to create. Customer support was easy to deal with. We have experienced no issues using SolarWinds Backup and recommend it to all of our clients.

Pros:

SolarWinds Backup is easy and efficient to use. The web interface is easy to use. Just simply install on the devices and you are ready to go. You own your own data. There are no storage limits which is an asset.

Cons:

There are a few limits on the scheduling features but we have managed to work around them.

Be careful before implementing

5.0 last year

Comments: Being charged for storage not actually used. My very first backup was a server. Someone had a 5TB external plugged in as I set up the backup. It was then excluded from the backup. It never backed up the external drive, but I was still charged for the storage because it was "selected" for a single day. I explained this to their support team, and their response was, "This is how we charge." I will include screenshots to show.One month after signing up, I get an email notification of a price increase. Then if that was not bad enough, they sprung this,"Oh, you are under contract and can't terminate without a fee." This was NEVER explained to me by ANY of their agents until I tried to leave. These business practices are horrific. Unless you don't care about throwing away money, stay far away.I have never had such a bad taste in my mouth. These kinds of bad business practices were the kind of thing that made me leave Solarwinds. I will never consider doing business with them ever again.

Pros:

It was easy to setup for office 365 and easy to recover items in 365. It was easy to locate and restore files in server backups

Cons:

Difficulty in setting up. No help in setting up. How they charge. Poor customer service

Alternatives Considered: Acronis Cyber Backup, Datto SaaS Defense and MSP360 Managed Backup

Reasons for Choosing Cove Data Protection: Axcient could not provide a sort option of search results when trying to recover Office 365 items

Switched From: x360Cloud

Reasons for Switching to Cove Data Protection: ease of recovery from Office 365

Easy to use for backups

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: It takes automatic backups for the mailboxes and files. Also provide error if there is any failure. Its fast, recovers in minutes.

Pros:

This is easy to use. Easy to restore files. Easy to see backup status and other the information. Would recommend it to all.

Cons:

Nothing that I can think of. Just if it has multifactor option with notifications factor, its easy to tap on it and put number.
