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."
"It results in more efficient storage utilization, cutting capital expenditure in half."
"The deduplication feature in this product is amazing."
"The speed and deduplication ratio are two of the most valuable features of the solution."
"The implementation is straightforward."
"The interface is very user-friendly."
"This is a user-friendly solution."
"From a centralized system, I can manage the interface, the backup policies, and the status of the database."
"The most valuable features are the deduplication and compression capabilities."
"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 product could be improved with better support for data protection."
"This product would be improved with the inclusion of more features to security or WORM."
"The appliance doesn't have the global deduplication, it has StoreOnce deduplication. It does not deduplicate across the appliance, it will deduplicate in one particular store. With the global deduplication, I could store more data."
"The solution would be improved if it could also be used as a data store for VMware."
"The solution's pricing could be improved."
"I would like to see an emphasis placed on making data deduplication and compression more powerful."
"The repository should have an extension to connect to the cloud and deposit the backups."
"The GUI and its user-friendliness have some room for improvement."
"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."
"There are costs for additional storage and space."
"Price-wise, it comes with a high price tag when compared to other products."
"The cost of HPE StoreOnce is very expensive."
"We have got a perpetual license, and we have access to all the features. If you are using cloud banks, you can store the internal data in HPE Cloud if needed. You can offload the data to the HPE Cloud. It is a licensed product. We have got around 10 TB of cloud bank storage with a one-time payment. We specifically took 10 TB for very critical offsite backups. We can also increase it in blocks if needed."
