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.

Veeam Backup & Replication

I am very satisfied with Veeam for my backup needs. It does a great job at handling backups from workstations to a central backup server, and has good flexibility for virtual machine and network folder backups. Once set up, it has been very maintenance-free and has caused no problems so far. All of the data recoveries I have attempted have been successful so far as well. Overall, it just works as described and is a great enterprise-level backup solution for Windows workstations and servers.

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.

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Creates a working VM copy of your VM servers
  • Backup and replications are very quick once you have run it the first time. I replicated new servers that had a 127GB drive in less than 15 min because it only backs up the data, not the entire drive.
  • If a backup or replication fails, you can set it to try again and that usually works. I have most of the mine set to retry 3 times.
  • If there is a problem like a backup failed it will email you so you don't have to babysit it.

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.
Josh McClelland | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Not easy to find on the homepage.
  • It's very hard to find prices, which is a big deterrent to me as a buyer.
  • High barrier to entry for prices for very small companies. I'd rather pay than use the free option, but it's prohibitively expensive for me as a 1-person company.

I really have no complaints about Veeam Backup & Replication. Their service has been excellent and the cost is minimal in comparison to other services I checked out. Implementation wasn't simple and the Veeam Support team was there to help each step of the way.

We've been using Veeam Backup & Replication for several years in our
organization, and we perform backups in all of our environments every
night. It’s one of the simplest yet effective and reliable solutions in
the market for the backup segment. You can check out the free Veeam
agent, so you can get an idea of the full product.

The Veeam Backup & Replication solution is up and running every time you need it as it was planned. In more than 3 years that we have been using the product every night, it might have failed or presented an error once or twice, so the availability percentage is almost at 100%.

To identify a bottleneck in the data path, Veeam Backup & Replication
detects the component with the maximum workload, the component
that works for the most time of the job. For example, you use a
low-speed storage device as the backup repository. Even if VM data is
retrieved from the SAN storage on the source side and transported over a
high-speed link, VM data flow will still be impaired at the backup
repository.

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.

Support response can be slow and sometimes tedious if you have a non-generic issue in your environment. Due to my experience with Veeam, I often discover the solutions before support does, but on the rare occasion where I need a higher tier of support, their experience and skill set are excellent. If you truly find something odd in your environment, Veeam Support, Development and their teams of engineers will figure it out and provide custom hot-fixes when necessary.

(I assume this question should say "Veeam" and not "Crownpeak Universal Consent Platform")Planning is key. Planning your backup schedule, size, data restore points, replication if you're doing that, &c. Testing is also important; make sure you back something up and then do a test restore. Set up alerts so you know if things aren't working (or even if they are, always good to know that too).

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

Veeam Backup & Replication

We used Zerto and CA Arcserve to address these needs without migrating to Veeam Backup & Replication. Zerto is a very successful instant backup and we are still using it now. It does what Veeam application cannot do in instant replication. CA Arcserve, on the other hand, is clearly lagging behind the Veeam Backup & Replication product and does not meet today's requirements.

Scalability can be addressed in many ways, but there is a consequence:
Higher performance and smaller backup windows may put too much stress on
production storage, and therefore, on its performance and Availability
to production workloads. To reduce stress on production storage, version
9.5 introduces a new way of reading VM disks that is optimized for
enterprise storage.

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.

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • In a business model were one have several deployment types, e.g. acceptance, production, load tests, with recurrent new releases to deploy, or software development environments based on VDI, with developers constantly experimenting tools or testing their development, in case of disaster, rebuild the infrastructure may take a lot of time with significant losses if a quick restore of a healthy environment is not possible.
  • Organizations vulnerable to ransomware might find a huge burden to rebuild a whole infrastructure if backup policies and tools are missing.
  • To Public sector ought to provide access to public data or archives, backup/restore and disaster recovery capabilities is paramount and the lack of according tools and policies may lead to unrecoverable losses.
