Our backup window exceeded 20 hours and had encroached our production window. Performance was being impacted. We purchased 2 Arcserve UDP 7300v appliances; one on premises, the other geographically located approximately 230 miles away. Arcserve now protects 10.2 TB, which dedupes down to approximately 2.6 TB. Our backup window has dropped from +20 hours to 45 minutes or less. All data is kept on the premises and replicated to the second unit that is offsite, providing redundancy. The 2nd Arcserve UDP appliance, which backs up servers at the offsite, replicates its data back to our home site. Arcserve UDP also provides data archive-to-tape (annual and quarterly) and local data file backup. Arcserve UDP excels in providing both. File restores are painless and flawless.,Backs up Windows and Linux virtual and physical servers quickly. After the initial full backup, data is deduped and compressed. This dramatically reduced the backup window. Restores are easily accomplished, using intuitive web interfaces. The data is easily replicated between units. Scheduled to occur in the middle of the night, network bandwidth is not dramatically impacted. Truly, a set it and forget it operation. Using the appropriate UDP, administrators can actually "spin up" a virtual machine from the latest backup, allowing disaster recovery on your critical servers while repairing failures in the background.

We use Aarcserve to backup more than 10 servers with a customized D2D2T three weeks scheduled job. Our single tape drive was so small, but Arcserve has enough options to customize it to fit our needs.
  • Easy to use.
  • Simple configuration.
  • Easy to customize using script.
  • Support line just send a link so I have to research by my own.
  • Requires you to buy a license for every agent add on.
  • VMWare compatibility.
Easy to create a backup job and restore once configured correctly but it does not run smoothly if the data storage is not correctly allocated.

Restorations are easy and painless. These Arcserve appliances have exceeded my expectations. Our daily “bread-and-butter” operations revolve around web servers and databases. I feel more confident than ever that file/database recovery operations will continue to be successful. These appliances live up to their claims.

Arcserve was the solution we chose to backup and restore our company's critical data. It was used across the entire organization.
  • Arcserve allowed us to manage the data in all our of our locations with ease.
  • Very stable product. No crashes, no rebuilds, reinstalls, etc.
  • The online community/knowledge base is lacking
  • The learning curve is a bit high.
It is well suited for an all-in-one backup solution. Also works well with Exchange.
