Overall Satisfaction with Barracuda Backup

Barracuda Backup is an easy backup platform to install and use across your network. The reporting features give you piece of mind that your backups are being taken care of. There is nothing more important than making sure your business is protected from document loss and Barracuda Backup fills that need easily.
  • Easy of use is key. Installing it on the network and applying the needed resources to the servers and workstations is a snap. Understanding retention and replication is given to you at a glance.
  • Support is king. It doesn't matter how great a product is if you don't get the support from the vendor to back you up. I have always had excellent experiences talking with Barracuda support.
  • It's hard to point out any flaws other than perhaps the price point can be a little high for smaller businesses. But you need to weigh that against total data loss.
  • It is hard to put a dollar value to backups as data loss can be small or large. From saving an overwritten file which can save a few hours of work redoing, or a virus or hard drive failure that can cost you thousands in customer data.
  • ROI may never be returned if you never need to recover, but consider the potential loss as your ROI.
For cloud only solutions, this may be great for small businesses or individuals, but the ability to have onsite as well as offsite backups makes recovery faster and more diverse to ensure all areas of data can be recovered quickly.
Great for mid to large size businesses that want hands on control of their backups with the security of offsite storage. Keeps the process pretty hands off once it is in place so you do not need constant overhead over handling your backups.
