What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the Live Boot solution. It's a feature on the Barracuda that is very helpful for critical service. Whenever you have a crash or your service is not working, you can just live-boot the machine and have your… more»

What needs improvement?

It would be a big improvement if the Live Boot feature could work without the need for a secondary, standby server. I would like to see the Live Boot feature extended to Hyper-V machines, in addition to VMware machines.

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

We bought a five-year package, as opposed to paying a yearly licensing fee. The price of the five-year contract was approximately three million Rupees ($42,000 USD).

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

Prior to this solution, we were using Veeam backup. We had a few issues with them in terms of scalability, so we were unable to continue using Veeam. This is the main reason we switched to Barracuda.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to ensure that it is adapted to all of the current hardware that you have. Prepare yourself to upgrade the solution, if needed, for at least five years. The biggest lesson that I… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features for my usage of the product are the simplicity of use and the availability of support.

What needs improvement?

One part of the product that I think needs the most improvement is the recovery feature. It is not as fast as it should be. https://www.itcentralstation.com/product_reviews/barracuda-backup-review-65726-by-mohmmed-merajuddin/edit#There are features in other solutions that this product does not have or support. For example, with some other products you can enlarge the disk core, you can have a… more»

What other advice do I have?

We recommend the product to other users because it is a good product. On a scale from one to ten, where one is the worst and ten is the best, Barracuda Backup is an eight. It does have some good features, but it needs to enhance some of the parts and add some features to give more flexibility and speed.

What do you think of Barracuda Backup?

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution and service provider, and this is one of the products that we provide and implement for our customers. I have my Barracuda certification and am due to renew it this year. We have experience with the on-premises deployment model. The primary use case for this solution is to perform routine backups that are scheduled daily, weekly, and monthly. The Barracuda is on our backup system, which is connected by fibre to our server.

The installation and operation of this solution are very smooth.

What needs improvement?

I would like to have a mix of backup between on-premises and the cloud. I would like to see the automatic backup of critical applications to the cloud.

We are still trying to get confident with daily usage of the solution. It is not always stable.
