Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""The most valuable feature is the duplication.""One of the things that I do like about it is that it has a very good deduplication feature.""I would recommend it if there is a general case."

"Bacula is pretty stable.""It works great and it provides you with several standard tools to restore your backup, even after a big failure.""The most valuable features are the special plugins such as SAP HANA databases, Microsoft SQL, and various types of virtualization."

Cons
"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.""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."

More Arcserve UDP Cons »

"Easier setup and configuration, perhaps including a GUI, would be an improvement.""We are looking for a unique interface that can rule both enterprise and open source editions. Such a thing does not yet exist.""Bacula needs a graphical user interface because, for administrators, the command-line interface is okay, but for the average user it is not very easy."

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