    Actifio Enterprise

    Actifio Enterprise is a great tool to use for data protection and disaster recovery at the enterprise level. It can create one master copy of your data and then replicate that data out via snapshots to local or cloud-based targets. I don't think this product would be a good fit to small to medium sized companies because it is on the expensive side.

    Arcserve Backup

    Arcserve UDP is fully suited for small to large size environments that need complete data protection solutions with the ability to run the fastest backups, replications, instant VM and DR.

    Mark McCully | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Arcserve Backup

    • Has a steep learning curve to the product, if not experienced in backup solutions.
    • Windows backup and restore functionality is excellent, however, we have found Linux somewhat lacking.

    Arcserve UDP provides our organization lots of benefits and it is much more than a simple backup and restore solution. We use it for cross platform DR, storage agnostic replications, DR solution instead of VMware SRM and more.

    Arcserve Backup support is usually very good. Their chat is usually able to fix most general issues, but will escalate more in depth issues to technical engineers that call you back. Their product knowledge is really good and usually resolve issues promptly.

    Alternatives Considered

    Actifio Enterprise

    Actifio is quicker to deploy easier to manage and capacity plan with less components to keep patched.
    Peter Dawe | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Arcserve Backup

    I have not worked with similar data protection and storage tools though this is the most reliable product that I have used. It has installed automation tools that help our team achieve goals faster with minimum labor input. Data protection has given all our team members focus time on more productive projects and tasks. Our IT infrastructure has all it takes to drive our business programs and monitor the workflow processes.

    Return on Investment

    Actifio Enterprise

    • Actifio has improved our Disaster Recovery approach by making it easier to get data into the cloud
    • Actifio has allowed our DBA's to manage their own backups and restores
    • Actifio has allowed us to save a lot of disk space by using clones\snapshots to replicate data from production to lower environments.

    Arcserve Backup

    • Arcserve Backup is relatively low cost in comparison to some other products. It is full-featured and continues to receive additional updates and added features. This makes it an ideal backup solution for smaller sites and the reliability to restore from backups is excellent.
