Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"One of the things that I do like about it is that it has a very good deduplication feature.""The most valuable feature is the duplication.""I would recommend it if there is a general case.""There are many backup options available in this solution. For example, you are able to do backups of servers, email, OST files, and users. This is a complete backup solution which is very good.""We are satisfied with Arcserve UDP. The most important feature that we use and why we choose this product is the RHA feature."

More Arcserve UDP Pros »

"The fact that Azure Backup is integrated is one of its biggest advantages.""The feature that I have found the most valuable is that it is easy to create a backup by using Azure Backup. It also has a good user interface and nice features for sending notifications when any backup fails or there is a change in the status of virtual machines.""The MARS agent makes it easy to use.""One of the most valuable features is security and connectivity to the data.""The best aspect of the solution is its backup functionality.""I have no issues with the stability at all. So I don't necessarily care about the stability of the product. I look more at whether or not can I recover. And I haven't had a failed recovery yet. I've got no failed recoveries of all my years.""The most valuable feature is the ease in which it backs up our data.""I like that it's a stable solution and their support is good. I think Microsoft's commercial force is superior."

Cons
"Arcserve UDP is in the middle range of complexity. The interface can be developed a little bit more to be user-friendly.""We could not go into granular details of retrieving backup information.""Based on my experience, whenever we need support, there are difficulties with communication when trying to resolve the issue.""The speed of restores should be improved. We have found the speed of large restores rather slow.""The solution can use a lot of bandwidth when the scheduling is not done, it should auto-schedule itself. For example, if there are 50 users connected in the network at 12 o'clock and the backup is not scheduled. At this time the network offices are going to have performance issues when it is doing a backup. Having a feature to auto-schedule a time when the network is not being used often would be beneficial."

"To make it a ten, it should have the ability to extend the retention and to perform a copy of the data outside of the subscription - with no additional costs.""On-prem can be complex to set up but the cloud is simple.""In the next release, I would like to see the ability to back up to different cloud providers.""I once tried restoring a Linux environment, and the size of the Linux VM or the data disk was really huge. It took a really long time to restore the environment and send the data from the storage to the disk. It took around 25 to 30 minutes, which was much longer than I anticipated. They can improve the duration of such restore operations. In the next release, it would also be good if they could reduce the duration for transferring the data from their storage to the actual storage while creating a virtual machine. They can reduce the duration or increase the data transfer rate.""We have a concern with the backup when were are working with VMs that are running in Barracuda Firewall because it usually fails.""Technical support is in need of improvement.""It doesn't have the option to have a backup from the database. It has backup for the files, folders, and backup only the whole virtual machine. But if I need to do a backup from the Oracle database, from an Exchange server or from SharePoint, this ability isn't there. There is no application backup.""We would like to see some kind of notification given to the user that a file was not synchronized well or what may have happened."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is moderate.""There is an annual license required for this solution and it is priced well.""The price of this product is high and it should be lower.""The solution is priced well compared to other solutions.""The retail fee is $1300 for a year for one server. Other than that, there is just the cost of your hardware."

More Arcserve UDP Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It is a bit costly initially, but it is well worth it in the long run, especially for fighting against a number of threats, such as ransomware, which the IT industry is facing.""Support payment works by the level of partnership and the number of shares.""Price-wise, it's similar to AWS.""This is an expensive solution in the Bangladesh marketplace.""The price is pretty good, maybe $30 for a machine, I can't complain.""We are paying about $100,000 USD per year, just for a couple of servers.""The price is somewhat high and could be lower."
