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.""The standard backup and restore feature is most used.""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.""We are satisfied with Arcserve UDP. The most important feature that we use and why we choose this product is the RHA feature."

"The speed of the backups and replications is fantastic and, for the most part, the simplicity of use has been wonderful.""The features that I have found most valuable are that it is a cheaper price and user-friendly.""The solution has a user-friendly interface and is easy to configure.""The upgrade process is manual but very simple to do.""The product license and support delivery have been great!""This enables us to do quick granular file recovery as and when required but also to do whole-site relocation in the case of a total loss scenario.""It is affordable.""It is easy to manage all of the individual backup jobs, check the status every day, and it can even send an email to keep us informed."

Cons
"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.""The speed of restores should be improved. We have found the speed of large restores rather slow.""Based on my experience, whenever we need support, there are difficulties with communication when trying to resolve the issue.""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.""Its interface can be improved. I find it unintuitive."

More Arcserve UDP Cons →

"It would be interesting if it were possible to integrate a mobile app to monitor the system in real-time.""Updating VM Tools on a replicated VM could be better.""In the press releases, it would be useful to make sure that the manual space reclaim procedure does not have to be performed but that it happens automatically, thus optimizing the use of space.""While the solution provides mostly what we need, it would be ideal if there were some additional feature capabilities for the API.""It'll help if they offered some automation and more usability for partners.""Updating VM Tools on a replicated VM could be better.""The backup speed needs improvement.""I would like to have a built-in SNMP client, which is important if we want to monitor it using Zabbix, Nagios, or another monitoring solution."

    Overview
    Arcserve UDP is a comprehensive solution that empowers even a one-person IT department to protect virtual and physical environments with a high degree of simplicity. It allows you to design and manage your entire data protection strategy with a unified management console, and enables you to scale your data backup coverage as your organization grows with the push of a button.

    NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides image-based, application-aware, and forever-incremental backup for VMware, Hyper-V, and AWS EC2 VMs. This means that NAKIVO Backup & Replication can capture all VM data, ensure the  consistency of applications and databases (such as Exchange, Active Directory, MS SQL, SharePoint) running in VMs, and transfer only changes to the backup repository. NAKIVO Backup & Replication uses native change tracking technologies (VMware CBT/Hyper-V RCT) to instantly identify changed data. For each VM backup, you can save up to 1,000 recovery points and rotate them on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.
