Barracuda Backup

We had a to restore data from a dead server and be able to restore it to an entirely new server (bare metal) and were able to do so without any issues. I can't think of any scenarios where backups are less appropriate.

  • The cloud control is great!! I'm able to restore files and folders from basically any machine on the Internet. I can restore either the local machine I'm using at the time, or directly to the server from which it came.
  • The user interface. Very easy to use and understand. Loads of options and configurations you can optimize for your particular needs.
  • Instance replacement. We have had an issue with one unit due to some hardware failure. Barracuda was amazing on getting this replaced quickly and getting us back on track.

Cons

  • Single file restore has always been an issue but hopefully will be added soon.
  • Physical server backup restoring has always been tricky but achievable.

  • Sometimes I do have to call support and ask a question or have help with an installation. This is not that often. Its because I cannot tell what the error is.
  • We had to lower a retention policy because the device we ordered was filling up way too fast. We were told that this device was good enough for the allocated size of the VM.
  • Adjusting admin settings on cloud control took way more time to figure out. At times it would give us an error or the change in admin status would not accept on the web browser.

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

Barracuda is easy to use with Cloud Control. I can manage ESS and their Archiver on one screen.

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.

  • The great thing about an appliance backup solution that is not a Windows based OS, is you don't have to worry as much about ransomware.
  • Although, the negative side to the appliance is if you outgrow it you have to replace the appliance. It does not have the capability to expand storage.
