Arcserve UDP Review

Data Store Deduplication: Saving Space On Storage And Time To Backup​.

What is most valuable?

Data store deduplication, which saves space on storage and time to backup.

How has it helped my organization?

Compliance on information security and reliability.

What needs improvement?

Use of RAM memory. I see no way to improve this without a SSD disk. I could not explain this more technically on a development level. The high use of RAM memory is a headache for those who wants to implement the system WITH all the resources in use. The RAM is used to cache data and make the deduplication process possible.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?


What do I think about the scalability of the solution?


How are customer service and technical support?

Low. They are available in a few languages and the ones supporting me had a low level of knowledge.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Symantec Backup Exec 12-14. Ease use, backup speed, and restore.

How was the initial setup?

No, very simple.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Simple licensing and are on average market prices.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Symantec Backup Exec.

What other advice do I have?

Mind the prerequisites planning. The deployment thinking is three years in the future.
