Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Global deduplication and the indexing of the data object are the most valuable features. It saves costs on the product side by doing compression and deduplication. It will help you and make your life easy to reach the data that you need within the minimum downtime when it's required.""In the VM, we have Live Recovery, Live Mount, and Live Sync.""It is much more scalable and flexible than everything else in the market.""It's the leader in backup and archiving.""It's very stable.""It's a complete software that can protect all the main applications. Perhaps that's the feature I like most. The integration with the NetApp and other apps is also very nice.""We are using a KVM system in our cloud, and this solution works very well with it.""The solution provides us with a single platform to move, manage, and recover our data across on-premise locations. Some of the guys have been using it to move a virtual machine from VMware to the Microsoft solution, Hyper-V. They back it up and then they restore to the different virtual machine provider, and that works great."

"The data protection functionality is the most valuable feature of this solution.""The backup is the most valuable feature. It also makes storage very easy.""The most valuable features are the replication to the cloud and the deduplication.""The most valuable feature is the duplication."

More Arcserve UDP Pros »

"Easy, immediate protection for data that is virtually infinitely scalable.""We perform backup drills to test the functionality, and we don't have any problems.""The product is easy to install and use while doing what it is expected to do.""They are the best support that we have had so far. When you contact or email them, they are very quick to respond. They always have someone available for us. That's what we want as a customer, we want someone to listen to us.""Most important is its ease of use. You plug it in, follow the steps, and you have your backup file.""The most valuable feature is the speed of backup, which is very good compared to other solutions.""The most important feature in Barracuda Backup is the ability to archive the backup of emails.""The performance is good and the interface is user-friendly."

Cons
"The setup is not that straightforward or easy. Even the documentation is not generic or public like other products. You have to be a partner or you have to have a specific account and download it from the vendor themselves.""We previously had difficulty with the support being foreign.""Support for this product needs to be improved because I have seen a couple of cases where it is taking more than the required time to solve issues.""Its competitor, Veeam, includes backup and replication in the same product. I don't know if Commvault has it or not, but they should if they don't.""The back of virtual machines needs improvement. I know they're working on it. They're always doing new things but I think they still have a little bit more to do.""I think the one thing that could be improved is the customer experience. The interface should be more user friendly.""This solution can be complex and difficult to administer because it supports all of the many platforms, so it would help if they could simplify it.""Just to keep it running is time-consuming. There are five people on my team. Commvault was supposed to be one of the less time-consuming solutions, but in reality it takes 60 percent of our time just to keep it running, and that's not even fine-tuning it; that's just to keep it running."

More Commvault Cons »

"It should be easier to switch between backup locations. We have multiple data storage locations and sometimes one of those storages need to be replaced. It would be nice if they made it easier to reconfigure the backup configuration.""The only problem with the solution is that when I change the drive capacity, it has to do a full backup. It's a problem when I have five servers to backup. When I only want to change the size of the drive, I have to do a full backup that can take one week.""In the most recent version of premium plus the replication has been removed, and it should re-added to the solution.""Based on my experience, whenever we need support, there are difficulties with communication when trying to resolve the issue."

More Arcserve UDP Cons »

"The solution needs fine-grained backup capabilities to service individual users. But this is a minor issue considering all that the product does.""I would like to see the automatic backup of critical applications to the cloud.""Some features like CIFS are not supported that would help speed and flexibility.""We cannot backup Sun Micro systems. They are not currently supported.""When we manage the box physically, we don't have as much control as we do when we manage from the cloud. The best management is from the cloud.""In the next release of this solution, I would like to see cloud support and deduplication functionality.""I would like to see a way to increase space.""I would like to see better integration with third-party applications."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Compared to other competitors and vendors the pricing is fair.""In my experience, compared to solutions like Veritas and Veeam, while they do have their technical pluses and minuses, Commvault can save you on average forty percent initially, and then twenty to twenty-five percent annually.""The price could perhaps be lower as well.""Our cost is around $20,000 per month. The previous year, it was around $30,000 per month. It now costs less because Commvault changed the licensing type for providers.""Our yearly cost is around €20,000... The cost is based on the number of users and the amount of data. They sell it per terabyte.""There is a bit of cost involved with signing up the entire solution. It's not a cheap solution.""Commvault licensing is a perpetual license so only the support is being renewed yearly.""The complete license gives us options for all the features. Commvault does not license based on storage or the management components. It can integrate with any storage vendor. That means that when we are out of storage and need more, we can integrate without additional licensing. In my opinion, Commvault needs to reduce the licensing cost by 20 to 40 percent to make it cost-efficient."

"We only have the maintenance of three standard UDP licenses. Each license is 50 Euro. There are some additional costs for the storage and software but it has nothing to do with the UDP.""Normally our customers purchase the premium plus license, rather than the standard one, which provides more options.""The price of this product is high and it should be lower."

More Arcserve UDP Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Low, fixed cost with great savings.""You don't need to buy an extra license or agent. With one box, you have licenses for any amount of devices that you want to backed up for whatever is backed up.""You have two options, which we have. We pay for it bi-monthly. Then, you can purchase the project hours and support annually.""What I like best about Barracuda Backup is the licensing model.""The price of the five-year contract was approximately three million Rupees ($42,000 USD)."
