With LiveBoot, organizations protecting their VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V environments with Barracuda Backup have the option of utilizing Barracuda Cloud Storage if their own virtual environment goes down. Organizations can then have their local Barracuda Backup act as storage, booting the protected virtual machine from a deduplicated state within minutes. Customers that subscribe to the Instant Replacement feature below who replicate to Barracuda Cloud Storage can use Cloud LiveBoot to boot multiple VMs directly from deduplicated storage and assign private or public addresses to the devices.

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.

Overall it is an excellent cloud backup tool with a high degree of restoration power. Clean interface, easy to use, and manage. It has fast and efficient technical support. Everyone in the organization is familiar with the tool, and this contributed a lot to the acquisition as well. Thanks to this tool, we recovered from an attack by hackers, viruses, and ransomware.

Barracuda Backup has world-class support. The cost is affordable and, although we rarely had to use it, it was easy to get a skilled engineer on the phone when we needed one. The support center was based in the United States, which eliminated communication barriers and helped us quickly solve problems when necessary -- without having to jump through a lot of hoops. The support also includes an instant replacement guarantee for the appliance and, if you maintain coverage for four years, you can get a free upgrade to the latest appliance. This is a supreme value.

I have had multiple calls for various reasons with Barracuda Backup's support on various issues that have crept up in my backup. They are quick to jump into the system and help when needed and have access to the backend system to check the integrity of the system and run various fixes for issues that are not readily visible through the user-accessible UI.

If I have an issue with a particular backup failing or an agent not working well, they are great. Fast and responsive. However, my experiences in dealing with hardware have not been excellent. They have taken long periods of time to resolve new installations and upgrades. In general they are very easy to get a hold of and in most cases are very good.
