Dell EMC Avamar

This software is well suited for companies that want to be very in control of their backups but need a simple tool. It could be convenient for them to just buy their own node, locate it in a different location, and set up the jobs for their machines to backup to the cloud with the specific plugins. However, it would not be convenient for companies looking to have a tool that needs to be secure and compliant, and that need to have different other options for business continuity.

MSP360 Backup (formerly CloudBerry Backup)

For any Managed Service Provider (MSP) that offers backups services to its clients, Cloudberry MBS is a winning solution. It is fast, powerful, flexible and priced to provide room for decent profit margins for the MSP. MSP's that handle clients so large that they need Appliance-based backups and recovery will need more sophisticated (read pricier) solutions, but for the vast majority of customers that have 1-10 servers, CloudberryLab MBS is an excellent solution.

Pros

Dell EMC Avamar

  • Avamar performs data deduplication on the remote host. This greatly reduces the amount of traffic that each backup requires. This even applies to the virtual environment through change block tracking. Backup times are reduced from hours to minutes.
  • The management interface makes it easy to configure and maintain data retention periods. Many times certain data must be kept for an extended period of time. There is a specific menu for managing retention periods.
  • The system is able to recover itself from a hard failure with virtually no loss of backups. There is a checkpoint taken each day that provides a recovery point in the event of a catastrophic failure. Since this is a node based system, the loss of more than one node could require a recovery be performed.
  • While another grid must be purchased, the replication utility allows all backups to be replicated to another grid at a remote location. This ensures the resilience of the backups in the event there is the loss of the primary data center.
  • Also works on HCI devices performing image-level backups as in our primary data center environment
  • There is also now an All-in-One appliance for smaller locations

  • Low cost backup solution for servers and workstations that is easy to setup and manager and it works!
  • I love the file level backups with ransomware protection also. Perfect for file servers.

Cons

Dell EMC Avamar

  • The client interface has constant JAVA issues and can be slow and chunky. We have often had issues with current versions of JAVA breaking it so it will not even run.
  • The backup clients are split out for function. Although this makes them light, it also makes it cumbersome to upgrade clients. The naming scheme can also be confusing for the clients.

  • The CloudBackup Drive has some issues.
  • Would be nice to have a single interface to manage all my servers.
  • Requires a console on each machine being backed up.

I have been using the product for over five years. This has performed so well that with the current system reaching its End-of-Life with EMC next year, I have proposed replacing it with the latest version of the product. Now that it integrates with Data Domain, the cost has been greatly reduced. Instead of the need to purchase many nodes, one Data Domain can replace them creating a significant cost savings.

I love Cloudberry. I am using it at three different sites to backup their mission critical file servers and it works great. It is a very cost effective backup solution that is easy to setup and use and the support is also very good. I would recommend it to anyone that needs a good backup solution for their business.

The system overall is easy to monitor and see your backup/restore status. The user interface could use updating as it relies on Java and any updates to Java cause the interface to stop working need to be reinstalled

They have a great app with more backups. It can be confusing to provide and push backups until you get used to it. Auto-renew is also a little weird with the licenses.

Support is very convincing, always eager to solve issues from the root rather than workaround, don't hesitate to take webex, describe the issues to the core and recommend configuration to avoid further issues. We can ask few questions other than the main issue. They don't hesitate to answer.

It's easy to set up, but a few things prevent it from being great. All the computers require one license. You have to stay on top of it, otherwise you fill up data storage with outdated and unused data. It's super easy to call CloudBerry for support and they are very friendly to work with. It's difficult as a tech when you want to fix the issue, but you are relying on technical support. Many times an error happens and you cannot find a single issue. The only solution is to update the application and hope the newest build fixed the issue.

Easy and successful implementation and the results have been very good with no issues since the install and go live. I highly recommend Cloudberry Backup software to anyone needing an easy to install, setup and manage backup solution. Excellent product with great features and reliability at a very good price point.

Alternatives Considered

Dell EMC Avamar

Avamar has simplied the back up approach in their VE edition and is much easier to use than Data Protector. Backing up multiple VMs takes minutes instead of hours now. Creating policies, retentions, and schedules, is vastly improved and much easier.

The MSP360 web management portal is unbeatable. It makes management and fault correction much easier. Unfortunately, Veeam does not have this without setting up a specific server for this purpose.

Return on Investment

Dell EMC Avamar

  • Avamar served our organization very well for many years. It was absolutely the best solution of its day.
  • We did the fork-lift upgrade twice to continue with Avamar. We could not continue to support this model of upgrades.
  • Our final decision to replace Avamar was when the nodes filled with meta-data while we had plenty of data domain space for backups.
  • We've spent too much engineer time babysitting the product.
Paul Lemmons | TrustRadius Reviewer

MSP360 Backup (formerly CloudBerry Backup)

  • We spend little time managing the backups once deployed.
  • It is a little more expensive than other backup solutions by the time you figure in the cloud storage portion.
