Barracuda Backup

The backup appliances are designed around overall storage space, not number of agents or databases. This means that there is a device for any company regardless of their data capacity needs. It is, by far, the best complete backup solution.

Alternatives Considered

Actifio is quicker to deploy easier to manage and capacity plan with less components to keep patched.

For cloud only solutions, this may be great for small businesses or individuals, but the ability to have onsite as well as offsite backups makes recovery faster and more diverse to ensure all areas of data can be recovered quickly

Return on Investment

  • We have managed to scale up the size of our environment without the need for extra admin overhead.
  • Over 99% backups complete.
  • Solution is robust and quick to scale to meet demands.
Peter Dawe profile photo
  • It is hard to put a dollar value to backups as data loss can be small or large. From saving an overwritten file which can save a few hours of work redoing, or a virus or hard drive failure that can cost you thousands in customer data.
  • ROI may never be returned if you never need to recover, but consider the potential loss as your ROI.
