We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The solution can scale up to one petabyte right now. It's very good for enterprise-level organizations."
"The initial setup was straightforward. Deployment takes about two weeks."
"The deduplication feature is the most valuable part of the solution."
"We have never had any issues with Data Domain. It has been stable."
"The most valuable features are the deduplication and compression and the Data Domain Boost."
"It's very easy to use the domain once it's been set up. The interface is also user-friendly."
"The solution's most valuable feature is the integrated deduplication function."
"The product provides good backup and compression services."
"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."
"The pricing should be adjusted. Customers continuously talk about the price. They know it is a good solution and they really need the type of storage the solution offers, but it costs somewhere around $100,000 and up. It's not cheap, but it's very important for data vendors."
"The pricing model needs to be improved."
"EMC is very expensive for small customers."
"We are not able to deal directly with the OEM we have to go to their partners in Nigeria."
"We have had deduplication and replication issues. When we used another backup software we noticed that it didn't have the same issues."
"The firmware upgrades could be simplified. I'm in the process of struggling to upgrade right now."
"The pricing could be better, but it's still not too expensive."
"The licensing model was the biggest concern for our company, but the poor support after the initial implementation is of equal concern."
"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)."
"The licensing is charged yearly. It's my understanding that the cost of the solution is somewhere around $7,000 every two years."
"All the storage is included in Barracuda, so you're just paying for the package. I think with Veeam, you pay for the package, and you pay for the storage."
"Pricing is related to size. A lower range solution might be about $33,000. My customers use higher range versions with a price of around $100,000. That's the price for both the hardware and software."
"In Naira it was twenty-five or twenty-seven million (approximately $75,000 USD) for the implementation and maintenance cost for three years."
"There are many options in the pricing structure which can cause some confusion and necessitate the purchase of additional licensing."
"This is one of the more expensive backup solutions on the market."
"Its price is reasonable."
