Works great for replacing old backup technology with a modern, extremely fast and reliable hyperconverged platform. No more swapping tapes! Offsite storage to the cloud with easy recovery and ability to spin up in the cloud or restore back to the cohesity environment. Deduplication and compression technologies are integrated so you don't waste any space.

  • Easy to use and setup new backup and restore jobs.
  • Extremely fast recovery time, can spin a VMware backup VM up in well under a minute.

Cons

  • Linux backup status reports are not as granular as the Windows status reports. Linux email reporting does not include missed backup jobs, backup, or replication failures or success.

  • The one drawback of this quick innovation is that their units were shipped with outdated firmware, but this was quickly remedied, and they have made operational changes to reduce the likelihood of sending outdated firmware again.

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

Arcserve UDP is fast, reducing our backup window from +20 hours to less than an hour. Arcserve UDP also has proven itself when restoring databases and files to to the same location or alternate locations quickly and efficiently. We have also successfully created "synthetic" Full backup tapes from the current backup sets

Cohesity was better priced, supported and honestly had more features for less money. Both operated in the same space. The ability to have NFS and Windows files share off the cohesity product was a great selling point as well

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.

  • Positive ROI , is the ease of use.
  • Positive ROI, is the time it takes to learn the UI.
  • Confident that our backups are working.
