In the world of cloud backup solutions, Lightsafe carves a distinct niche. Let's delve into how Lightsafe distinguishes itself from other prominent players in the market.
Unparalleled Cost Efficiency
Transparent Pricing: With Lightsafe, what you see is what you get. We pride ourselves on no hidden fees and utmost clarity in our billing.
Cost-Effective for Scaling Horizontally: As businesses grow and add more machines, Lightsafe becomes increasingly cost-effective. Unlike some solutions that become costlier as you scale up, with Lightsafe, the more physical hosts you have, the more value you extract. Our pricing model becomes particularly advantageous for businesses or MSPs that expand sideways.
Streamlined Storage Setup: Lightsafe integrates storage in the background, eliminating the need for complex third-party storage setup and separate billing.
Professional Backup & Security
Data Maintenance within Backup Window: Lightsafe efficiently manages backups, ensuring most data processing occurs within the backup window, leading to consistent and reliable backup timings.
Disaster Recovery and Uptime: Get your business back up and running in the shortest time possible after a data loss. Lightsafe's unique self-healing technology also avoids the need to reseed data in the event of local agent corruption.
No Risky Oversights: Other solutions can sometimes leave room for security lapses, especially during setup. With Lightsafe, security practices are transparent and user-friendly, minimizing the risk of unintended errors.
Ease of Setup and Management
Intuitive Platform Organization: Lightsafe organizes by resource, ensuring efficient management without the confusion of navigating scattered settings.
Data Sovereignty: Where your data is stored can be crucial. Lightsafe gives you the flexibility to choose your data storage regions (US East, US West, EU).
Flexibility and Transparency
Granular Control: Lightsafe offers detailed backup and storage control without hiding anything behind automated processes.
Clarity on Encryption: Our encryption processes are upfront. Once a master encryption key is set, Lightsafe ensures users are aware of its significance and will nag if test-backups are not completed.
Here's a 5-year backup cost scenario for a clearer understanding of how Lightsafe fares against a leading competitor's solution:
|Scenario||Lightsafe Cost||Competitor's Cost*|
|1TB on 1 machine for 5yrs||$ 330||$ 1,879 [ +470% ]|
|20TB across 20 machines for 5yrs (1TB per machine)||$ 6,600||$ 37,580 [ +470% ]|
|Real-world example: 56TB across 35 machines for 5yrs (1.6TB per machine)||$ 21,300||$ 70,049 [ +230% ]|
|* assuming a hefty 2:1 compression ratio|
The above table illustrates how Lightsafe isn't just competitively priced; it's significantly more cost-effective, especially in real-world scenarios with multiple machine backups.
