    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.

    IDrive

    IDrive is well suited for the following reasons:
    • It is easy to set up Unlimited Devices/Account Via mail
    • It is possible to upload a bulk amount of data
    • Upload speed is Superfast
    The app is Excellent for any mobile device, but if we consider its scenarios where it is less appropriate, I think it will be like as follows:
    • Not unlimited storage
    • It has only basic sharing options

    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.
    Tim Lillis | TrustRadius Reviewer

    IDrive

    • It works seamlessly - Set it up once and forget it.
    • There is a desktop app as well as a website to view your data.

    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.

    • Need to be able to do a full backup of encrypted disks

    Based on 12 answers
    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 give them a 10 because I've only ever had to contact them about upgrading or renewing my plan and that was super easy and they were very responsive. Honestly, the experience has been so good I've never had to contact their support team about any issues with their products. Which says a lot.

    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.

    IDrive

    Backblaze is easier to set up, but it's not the better solution for me. I need to be able to backup to multiple locations. Backblaze didn't offer a way to do backups to an external HD. Backblaze didn't offer versioning when I picked iDrive. Backblaze wasn't able to throttle upload and download speeds which would slow things down when I have to deliver files to clients online.

    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.

    IDrive

    • The positive impact of IDrive in my institution is the move to working from home in the pandemic situation because it helped our institution to gain at 80% ROI
    • The biggest negative impact is that employees and teachers are working from home and that's why reduced the need for backing up office computers
    • It has fulfilled our demand because in this pandemic situation we have won the race against time to meet the demands for clients or students
