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

Pros
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.Whenever you have a crash or your service is not working, you can just live-boot the machine and have your service up and running.The product is easy to install and use while doing what it is expected to do.We perform backup drills to test the functionality, and we don't have any problems.Easy, immediate protection for data that is virtually infinitely scalable.The scalability of the product is fine.

The general backup for replication and virtual standby are the most valuable aspects. It does what it says it does. It's a decent tool for not a big budget.The fact that it can take a snapshot of everything on a server and replicate it on another server in real-time is the most valuable feature.The solution offers a 100% guarantee that if it's backed up you will be able to restore it onto any platform you want.The best feature of the solution is the user interface.

Cons
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.I would like to see the Live Boot feature extended to Hyper-V machines, in addition to VMware machines.Some features like CIFS are not supported that would help speed and flexibility.I would like to see the automatic backup of critical applications to the cloud.The solution needs fine-grained backup capabilities to service individual users. But this is a minor issue considering all that the product does.It is not always stable.

It's buggy. That's a big problem. We're arranging to get rid of it. We're going to switch to Veeam.You can only take a snapshot from a virtual environment. It should have the ability to take snapshots from both a virtual and physical environment.Sometimes, when we have certain batches for Windows, it needs to be restarted. When it's restarted, the service is configured as a delayed start. Sometimes, you need to wait too long until it rights itself, or you have to do it manually.Rapid Recovery can only backup the machine or disc, but it can't back up from folders, and files, and things like that.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.The price of the five-year contract was approximately three million Rupees ($42,000 USD).Low, fixed cost with great savings.

It's very expensive which is why I want to drop it. They charge us per core and we have a six-core server. It's expensive to pay for maintenance charges. I want to switch to something cheaper.

Overview

Barracuda Backup is designed from the ground up for the cloud-integrated systems. It gives you the flexibility to easily back up data wherever it resides - on premises or in the cloud - and to replicate the data to our secure cloud or to a private location of your choice. Simple to configure and manage, and totally automated.

Quest Software's Rapid Recovery is block-level, incremental backup software. Unlike the incremental feature found in legacy products, which backed up the entire changed file, Quest Rapid Recovery backs up only the parts of a file that have been changed.
