Barracuda Backup

Barracuda Backup is a great, affordable, and quickly deployed solution if complex DR requirements are not needed. Depending on your RPO and RTO it may be a perfect fit. If you need immediate recovery you should look elsewhere. If you have a scenario where you need some form of backup, like yesterday, this is your solution.

Veeam Backup & Replication

Many times we have used the tool to restore systems, both partial and full restores to solve issues that users have put us into. As not as the backup ran successfully, which it does 99.9% of the time, we have been able to make a successful restore of the system. It has not let us down.

Pros

Barracuda Backup

  • The Barracuda Backup is simple to install, setup, and administer. At the same time gives you plenty of options to customize your setup to fit your needs.
  • The restore process is much more simplified than many of the other backup solutions we've utilized.
  • The alerts, and reporting features and second to none. We'll often time know when a backup has failed, and have the issue corrected long before the customer brings it to our attention.
  • Barracuda's support team is great. Their intelligent, well versed in the product, and incredibly efficient.

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • It creates forever incremental backup by standard, this feature will keep your back-up windows as small as they can be.
  • It supports Nutanix AHV, to us it's very important to have a backup software that makes backup at hypervisor level.
  • Restoring files and object is fairly easy with Veeam, we get various questions about restoring files, also from older restore points, depending on the retention it's always fairly fast and helps users with their ongoing work.

Cons

Barracuda Backup

  • On the restore functionality, I'd like to be able to see multiple folders revisions. Its hard to explain, but the restore function of drilling down to get certain files instead of having to download an entire folder.
  • To be able to see file / folder sizes before downloading so I could have a better idea of download times and such.
Dustin Williams profile photo

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • I would like some sort of manifest of backed up files to search through before attempting to find the file through the interface.
  • Rather than selecting the backup to restore from, I'd like to select the file, see all of its versions, and then decide which version to restore.

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.

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.

Veeam has a pretty decent knowledgebase with articles relevant to all sorts of possible issues (I'v eonly had a few). There's also a forum with searchable answers. Beyond that, submitting a ticket or calling support is easy and they're prompt. We had a licensing issue once and they helped us resolve it within a few hours, even though it wasn't strictly critical.

(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

Barracuda does very well for data that needs to be sent offsite. That's our main use for it. It's reliable and easy to configure, though it is storage-limited. What you buy in the appliance is what you get, period. We brought in CrashPlan to be able to utilize our own storage so that we could back up anything and everything, though we don't push offsite with CrashPlan. We brought in VEEAM to back up our virtual environment to our own storage again, because while the BBS was able to back up virtual machines, it didn't have the storage internally that we needed. VEEAM utilizes our own storage and we push across down to another of our own storage systems for remote backups, so we're going around the BBS appliance and only using it for data that we need to have stored somewhere geographically distant from our main datacenter.

Veeam Backup & Replication

I have looked at other solutions like Symantec (Veritas), which I used to use at a previous job, and Unitrends, and while they may have great features, and might perform "just as well" as Veeam, none of them have given me a compelling reason to switch away from Veeam. Since it does everything I want and seems to do a great job at it, it is hard to find a reason to switch.

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

  • Incremental backups allow us to fee safe when restores are needed in a hurry.
  • Backup to cloud offers us the security of knowing our data is safe in multiple locations.
  • Compliance is easy with Barracuda by making multiple backup pathways and restore capabilities.
Eric Krueger profile photo

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • The yearly price we pay in support and maintenance for Veeam hasn't come close to the amount of times we've used Veeam to restore critical aspects of our infrastructure during emergencies or user-error.
  • The ability to test backups immediately after they are created, receiving a report from the software on the success/failure of the virtual machines being restored and powered up has provided our team peace of mind and given the company confidence in it's backups.
