Well Suited: Large and complex environments with high retention and varied data sets. If VTL is desired this solution is amazing. Less Well Suited: Highly virtualized environments who need a simple turn key solution with fast recovery times.

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.

Not a simple solution to use and one with a lexicon and vocabulary you will need to be familiar with in order to use the product to its potential.

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.

[We selected CommVault because it has] Much more flexibility, better support, easy to expand and grow, agnostic storage and dedupe options. Also, when speaking of backup to the cloud option, CommVault has a lot more experience, features, and flexibility. Also, built-in dedupe options and features were definitely a positive factor in determining which product to buy. In the end, it was the rich feature set that swayed us.

Return on Investment

  • Data recovery is very nice.
  • Licensing goes high if you add-on the other agents.
  • Overall ROI is fair.
Hiroki Nakazato profile photo
  • Mainly on a compliance note, we are able to archive backups out multiple years.
  • Cost is high, but most solutions that provide what Commvault is providing are going to be costly.
  • Peace of mind knowing that we have the backups we could fall back to is nice.
