Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I would recommend it if there is a general case.""The standard backup and restore feature is most used.""The most valuable feature is the duplication.""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.""One of the things that I do like about it is that it has a very good deduplication feature."

"It has a lot of very good features. The virtual tape library (VTL) feature is most valuable. Overall, it is easy to use.""I can confidently say that I have managed more than 30 or 50 appliances over different time periods, and yet I never had a single hardware failure.""NetBackup is based on really good architectural hardware, and Veritas has the best backup and replication technology in the world.""The solution has a very easy-to-navigate user interface.""We find the pricing is reasonable.""The policy-based backup feature is very helpful.""The reporting is very good compared to other tools.""It is easy to use and the performance is good."

Cons
"Its interface can be improved. I find it unintuitive.""The speed of restores should be improved. We have found the speed of large restores rather slow.""Arcserve UDP is in the middle range of complexity. The interface can be developed a little bit more to be user-friendly.""Based on my experience, whenever we need support, there are difficulties with communication when trying to resolve the issue.""We could not go into granular details of retrieving backup information.""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."

More Arcserve UDP Cons →

"The price needs to be improved because it is really expensive.""It's an expensive solution.""It would be a better solution if we were able to make more reports in regards to the backup system.""I would like to see support for databases such as MySQL and MongoDB.""Feature-wise, it is quite good, but it is very costly. Its price has gone up quite significantly over the years, and that makes people like us look at alternatives.""The configuration can sometimes be tricky during implementation.""The hybrid model is not that efficient if we want to off-site data; it takes a lot of time to upload the data on a regular basis.""In terms of implementing the solution, it's quite technical. You need to be knowledgable in order to pull off a successful deployment."

    Top Answer:

    Top Answer: 
    If you compare the solution to, for example, Dell Data Domain, it looks that the deduplication ratio is even higher than what we have on NetBackup. If they want to improve, then they should look at… more »
