We have eliminated about 80% of the time we previously spent managing our backup solution since deploying Cobalt Iron. The service eliminates a lot of worry by making sure the servers are healthy, dealing with failures, ensuring recoverability, and taking care of updates and patches. I definitely do not lose any sleep over backups anymore.
