Barracuda Backup

There are few scenarios that it's not well suited for as long as it's either VMware or Agent Based installations. I have not had success with directly backing up a non-Windows file share. I would definitely test the product first if you are not planning to directly backup through an agent.

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

Commvault works well in a large environments with a variety of client types and data classes. With its policy-based configurations, it makes administration of large environments easier when configuring storage and retention, copies, schedules, client configs, etc. Commvault also backs up just about everything you can think of, and works with almost all storage and compute platforms, so there are rarely any cases where Commvault cannot accommodate.

Pros

Barracuda Backup

  • Quickness to deploy. You will not need an expert to get this up and running.
  • Extremely intuitive interface: Brand new techs can pick this up without much training.
  • Global Accessibility: The cloud interface allows administrators to access their backups from everywhere for quick restores after hours.

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • Commvault is the Swiss Army knife for data protection in an Enterprise environment. You name the environment and Commvvault has something to protect it. Very helpful in this on-prem/off-prem world that is developing into a DevOps world.
  • Improves our Disaster Recovery
  • Starting to utilize for data migration for VMware in places where Zerto is too expensive

Cons

Barracuda Backup

  • In some of the older version of the software, drilling down to restore a single files was quite the process. It's still a little slow to this day, but improvements have been made.
  • It would be nice to have the ability to spin up a virtual machine directly on the backup appliance in the event of a failed server. At current time you need a Hyper-v or VMWare environment to restore a failed machine to.
  • Once you put the device in cloud control mode, some of your options are limited when you log directly into the local appliance. I personally would like to see all the options remain the same so I can administer the device the same remotely and I would sitting in front of it.

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • For database restores, it has to restore the entire database in order to recover just one table.
  • Backups of virtual machines with direct attached storage is difficult.
  • I wish it covered cloud assets more thoroughly, like AWS ELBs and Security Groups.

It is serving it's purpose and for companies that have a smaller IT staff, it is not time consuming to manage. Support for the product when needed has been very good and they are responsive when tickets are opened for support. The product is scalable so as we grow we can easily increase the resources as needed on the backend.

Have a interface very user friendly. You do not need a lot of training, or any formal training really, to get up and going and use nearly all of the functionality of the product. This facilitates the post-implementation company as it reduces costs with backup specialists and any trained analyst can take care of its infrastructure. One negative point is not all the options and features are in the HTML view.

They are always quick to get you routed to a tech support person and always get follow up after contacting them. Last experience was amazing, she adjusted my boxes and they perform even better. I cannot say enough about the support. We had some trouble with one of the windows servers leaving the volume shadow copy out there and would fail. They worked with us to adjust and get working. After that it has been months since I have had to do anything with the server to keep the backups running.

I would rate Commvault's support as an 'average' support.Now that we have a very experienced guy working with Commvault, most of the time we can fix or do anything by ourselves.We had some issues with their support taking a really long time to respond and fix some issues in the past.In most cases we ended up appealing to the community, other peers, or Commvault's SE team.

Plan well and make sure you collect all the required information and details before going for implementation. Organize it in step by step or break the setup into different modules to make it simple.

Alternatives Considered

Barracuda Backup

I'm much happier with how Barracuda lays out their console and user interface. Acronis is a great product and you do get what you expect. But to have a the learning curve personally cut by at least 50% is a great thing to have when it comes to training new members to the IT team and getting them up to speed of our procedures.
Dustin Williams | TrustRadius Reviewer

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

Both of these products work very well and are very simple. We continue to use Commvault [Complete Backup & Recovery] because of how it integrates with our tape library and the simplicity of how it works. Rather than have to rip and replace just to save a few dollars, potentially, we know this works and we know that we don't have to make any changes to continue to have reliable backups.

Return on Investment

Barracuda Backup

  • We've had a couple situations where we've had to pull data back down from the BBS cloud and while it can take a while sometimes, we haven't had an issue where we haven't been able to restore something that we needed. Overall it has been very reliable.
  • We've had to implement two other backup systems in addition to Barracuda Backup and dedicate our BBSs to just mission-critical data because we're size-locked in our appliances. Upgrading to larger models is not financially viable at the moment and we can't expand their internal storage or point them to an iSCSI share or likewise. We brought in other systems to handle non-critical and virtual data because of those storage limitations.
Jason Thomas | TrustRadius Reviewer

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery has allowed us to sunset several specialized products that are no longer needed. These application-specific backup solutions were necessary for certification. Now that Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery provides the same protection, consolidation was an easy decision.
  • Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery was able to provide like-kind replacements for in-house solutions. Custom backup solution functionality could be mirrored in Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery while gaining the management layer for auditing, reporting, monitoring and trending.
