"The CDP backup feature is very nice, as it allows you to take backups at high frequencies and with application consistency."
"It is an excellent product. It is easy to deploy, stable, and fast. Their support is excellent."
"The interface is user-friendly and even if our tech isn't onsite, we can work with the owners to confirm that the data will be restored with no issues."
"It is very reliable, so we don't have any issues with it. Our customers have never raised any issue with it. Basically, once you set it up and it is running, it is trouble-free. Our customers are happy. They just got a renewal for the subscription for the service."
"Its interface is intuitive, and it is easy to use when I am restoring files. Barracuda does a really excellent job at compression, which makes it very efficient. Eight years later, I am only halfway through to the capacity, which is very good."
"The configuration and the onboarding process are pretty good."
"The backup feature is most valuable. That's why we took it."
"It is very stable, and I'm very happy with this solution."
"The cloud side of it is nice. Everything happens behind the scenes without you realizing it, which is nice. It doesn't interrupt usage. There is also the freedom and ease of use of the cloud portal, which you can use to manage your backup. One of the strong points of Barracuda is that you can go from zero to having your first backup running within 10 minutes. If you have access to admin accounts and everything else, it can happen in 10 minutes. The ability to go in and just restore a particular file without having to do a full restore is also very useful. You can just go in and pick the files that you need to restore, and the same is with email. You can just go in, find an email, and restore that email without having to do a full backup of all the data or a full restore of the data. I feel very safe because it is not just about the backup; it is about the protection of the data from outside threats. They have a lot of areas of ATP, that is, advanced threat protection. You don't see that much on the backup side. You see it more on the email side. In the email protection, you know it is there at the back. It moves the quarantine emails that come through into a sandbox area, and then you can choose in the sandbox. You can open up an email in the sandbox to make sure that if there is a virus, it can't harm you. You can also plan how often your backups run, such as every six hours or four hours. It is the same with email. They also have a great PhishLine package, which is phishing attack training. You can have the strongest and the best backup and security that you can, but the end user is always the weakest link. They send almost like testing emails to end users to help them identify and understand phishing emails and prevent user or phishing attacks. It is a very good package."
"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 most valuable feature is the speed of backup, which is very good compared to other solutions."
"The application could include a feature to install a set size of data, such as the ability to store a single application with all its registry information for easy transfer."
"To improve Altaro, I would like to see the ability to choose more than one backup location at a time."
"Basically, how it works is that you have a single local drive, and then you have a cloud backup. It'd be nice if you could rotate the single local backup drive. As of now, you can't."
"Setting up Barracuda Backup is straightforward."
"The backup feature could be a bit simpler to utilize. They should make the process of backing up individual files simpler."
"Their technical support is not very good. You never know what they are doing and what is the issue. Customers need to know what is happening. This is our main concern and the only thing that can be improved in this solution. I would like to have more visibility about what is going on when something happens. I need to know what was done to solve the issue."
"Its speed can be a bit improved, and of course, its pricing can go a lot cheaper."
"Barracuda Backup could use some more integration."
"It would be nice to have some reports generated on the usage, but it is not essential."
"The restore time can be improved. The restore time for large quantities of folders is slow. Sometimes, if I'm doing a full recovery of a server, it takes multiple hours, which probably is natural. It might also be because of our internet speed to the cloud."
"I would like to see the Live Boot feature extended to Hyper-V machines, in addition to VMware machines."
