EaseUs Todo Backup is well suited for the Branch Office and small to the medium business network. The software is powerful enough to meet most of the demands of these less complex environments. However, it may not provide the bells and whistles of enterprise software designed for highly virtualized environments.
Symantec Ghost Solution Suite is well suited to standard images of company approved software and standard configurations for all users. When every user has the same computer configuration, it is easily managed with a standard image across the board. It is less effective if you need to have multiple configurations for different groups. It becomes cumbersome to manage all the various images. When you add to the complexity by having to address the different drivers for the different hardware model computers, this only adds to the overall number of images you will have to manage, create and keep updated. I find Ghost most helpful with standard hardware model computers and one or two images company wide.Incentivized
It's easy to use for beginners. I found the UI to be straightforward and logical.The software also runs in the Windows Pre-install Environment (Windows PE) if the machine crashes. Of course, you need to have backed up the drive first!Backups from the whole OS down to single files is available.Backup to CD/DVD, SSD and HDD are all supported.Incentivized

It needs a better way to monitor success/failure of the scheduled backups. Maybe notifications?Incentivized
Initial install could be easier. Had to call support to assist.Joining domains had a few kinks that had to be figured out.Incentivized
EaseUS Todo Backup is a superb software that does what it claims without the user needing a degree in computer science. Its plain user interface belies a lot of functionality that logically "guides" the user to making local and remote (cloud) backups of their important data. Additionally, the secure encryption of backups is just one less thing to worry about.Incentivized
EaseUs Todo Backup is well suited for the small business environment and provides a good bang for the buck and value for features. It is not as costly as the other enterprise-grade solutions and therefore fits well into the budget of small businesses. It is not as advanced as the enterprise solution, but it provides the right mix of features and functionality to meet the needs of the average small business network.
The Symantec Ghost Solutions Suite learning curve isn't that steep.
It has a large impact on keeping the business going if there is a hardware failure.Incentivized
A positive impact of Ghost would be time. To deploy computers form scratch is very time consuming and labor intensive for the IT Department. Ghost clearly saves the time of the IT departments staff to quickly get a new computer out to user so they can spend their time on addressing other issues and being more productive.Time is money. If the IT department is spending hours preparing computers and employees are out of a computer for an extended period of time waiting for one to be loaded, this is money lost to the company in paying employees to sit around and wait for a computer to be configured.Incentivized
