Cons

  • 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.

  • Confirmation when doing restores wouldn't hurt at all. It would help prevent my own misclicks!
  • We are hoping for a future option of ISCSI attached drives.
  • A way to cancel restores in the case of restoring the wrong item or too many items.

Based on 1 answer
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.

Alternatives Considered

It is easy to deploy and manage. Solid data recovery and good notification option. We need to backup to tape to retain 7 years thus D2D2T is a good option to have.

Return on Investment

  • Deploying Arcserve UDP with the "copy-to-tape" option allowed us to reuse well over 50 LTO5 tapes used by our previous backup solution. Further, we extended data retention on site (maintaining monthly backups on disk) as well as extending off site data retention on tape.

  • We have already saved tens of hours of downtime by doing a simple 30 second restore in Cohesity
