Arcserve Backup

Restorations are easy and painless. These Arcserve appliances have exceeded my expectations. Our daily “bread-and-butter” operations revolve around web servers and databases. I feel more confident than ever that file/database recovery operations will continue to be successful. These appliances live up to their claims.

Rubrik

It is by far the easiest and well thought out backup solution I've encountered. If you have requirements to archive into AWS, Azure, or GCP, it is extremely easy to configure. You will be up and archiving in minutes. The SLA based job scheduling is very intuitive. The only negative or less appropriate usage I can think of would be the instantiation piece. It takes several hours to instantiate one VM to a cloud environment. This could be our lack of bandwidth, but it is only feasible for a long term DR scenario.

Pros

  • Backs up Windows and Linux virtual and physical servers quickly. After the initial full backup, data is deduped and compressed. This dramatically reduced the backup window. Restores are easily accomplished, using intuitive web interfaces.
  • The data is easily replicated between units. Scheduled to occur in the middle of the night, network bandwidth is not dramatically impacted. Truly, a set it and forget it operation.
  • Using the appropriate UDP, administrators can actually "spin up" a virtual machine from the latest backup, allowing disaster recovery on your critical servers while repairing failures in the background.
  • Copy-to-Tape function is available. This satisfies annual and quarterly data retention requirements.

  • Rubrik greatly simplifies management and usability of backup systems. Configuration is very simple compared to our old system.
  • It makes archiving data to either an offsite cloud or NAS mount point extremely easy. All that is required, is a few configuration items, and away your data goes.
  • Support is outstanding. Maintenance upgrades and trouble cases are handled quickly and professionally.

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.

  • Cloud cluster has it's limitations as far as performance and resilience. With large data in the environment, it has issues archiving large amounts of data to S3.
  • Multi-tenancy permissions are not fully baked. I had to get creative to give proper permissions to admins of different organizations. I submitted an RFE for this.
  • Notifications are also not fully baked. Anyone that is an admin level of any organization, receives all system notifications.

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.

The issues are usually resolved within 24 hours, and most either via e-mail and/or remote session initiated by Rubrik support to the appliances.There is minimal involvement required by my stuff.

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

Veeam is the closest to Rubrik but still cannot compare in its simplicity and success rates. The others just don't even compare, heck you have to have a PHD just to use CommVault

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.

  • Provides an archive of business-critical applications within our organization.
  • Fast recovery of corrupted virtual machines.
  • Easy and very understandable platform.
