If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Arcserve UDP, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
This is a good solution because it offers multiple hybrid options. The same product can support local backup, cloud backup, and backup a server to the cloud as well. It is a complete portfolio available in a single product. When comparing to other products, all of the options are available. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
I would rate it an eight out of ten. Think better of the configuration before shutting off the whole backup environment because when it's running for a couple of months or years it's difficult to change the data storage location and configuration. It would be nice to have more of a whitepaper from Arcserve with respect to setting up certain environments.
I am using the on-premises version of the solution. I like the solution; it's working well for us. I would rate it eight out of ten.
Before choosing a solution, I always consider the stability and whether it is doing the work and restoring that it is supposed to do.
I would rate Arcserve at five out of 10. It's slow, and we cannot restore each user's mailbox individually.
