Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"I like that it's a stable solution and their support is good. I think Microsoft's commercial force is superior.""The MARS agent makes it easy to use.""The most valuable feature is the ease in which it backs up our data.""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 backup features are very useful.""I like that it's a simple system.""We are happy with this product and have not found any issues while using it.""It is easy to schedule backups."

"It seems reliable and easy to use.""The Granular Restore of SQL feature has been a lifesaver more times than I can count. One of the main reasons for looking at Carbonite was their support for platforms like AIX and AS/400 Series.""Easy verification of things is the most valuable feature.""Technical support handled all our issues quickly and effectively.""It does not slow down your computer or use a lot of resources as it works."

Cons
"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.""We have a concern with the backup when were are working with VMs that are running in Barracuda Firewall because it usually fails.""The solution is quite technical. I wouldn't describe it as user friendly. It could be simplified a lot to make it more accessible to the average user.""The monitoring and tagging features could be improved.""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.""The solution is still in its infancy; it's not a mature product yet.""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.""They need to improve the frequency of the backup. You can only backup one to three times a day. It would be better to back up continuously throughout the day."

"They do not yet have USB recovery but they are adding it in coming releases.""The only thing that I would like to see improved is related to marketing. Currently, it is very difficult to find the right paper and stuff for me. Their marketing department should provide better information because currently, it is very difficult to find information on the internet. It was bought over by OpenText, and you won't be able to find a lot of information about this solution on their site. They should also provide training facilities for commercial purposes. Some of my colleagues recently went for pilot training, and they were technical. If I want to get trained, the training has to be more commercial. Currently, there is no such training for users like me.""The support for object storage isn't quite there yet. Its public cloud support can be improved. I would love to see the public cloud support for object storage, and it would be great, but what I always hear from the folks at Carbonite is that in a lot of cases, it directly competes with their cloud offering. So, I don't know when or where that will go or if that will go anywhere, but we are hopeful to see something. The dashboard is a little outdated. If they gave it a facelift and put some better design around their dashboard, that would be tremendous. I generally care less about the visual aesthetics of an application as long as it does what it needed to do, which is true in the case of this solution. We also have the Microsoft 365 platform. Because they're two separate platforms, I have to log in to my Microsoft platform to manage it, and I have to log into my Carbonite server backup platform to manage it. Having these two coexist together in one management console is really what we're looking for, but we went for it knowing this. We also knew that there would be some integration coming down the road. So, we're again hoping to see some of that coming in 2021."

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.""We are paying about $100,000 USD per year, just for a couple of servers.""The price is somewhat high and could be lower.""The price is pretty good, maybe $30 for a machine, I can't complain.""This is an expensive solution in the Bangladesh marketplace.""Price-wise, it's similar to AWS."

"The pricing is between $120 and $150 per year.""Its price is reasonable."
